This is my third order from GemSelect. I was 100% satisfied with my first two orders. Their photographs and product descriptions are very accurate and helpful. Selection is great. Shopping is very easy.
Gems were exactly the color I expected. Size was smaller than expected but my fault - didn't really consider measurement provided well enough. I'm just going to change the design that had been planned. Problem solved!
