I have found the quality of my purchaces to be exactly what was represented on the items profile. That is why I have used GemSelect again and refer other goldsmiths and friends to Your site. They have all responded with a Thank ...
I am very happy with my purchase from GemSelect. The process was quick and easy. The price and selection of gems is astounding and I found exactly what I was looking for in as good if not better quality than other dealers were offering for the same gem but for a fraction of the cost. My girlfriend is going to love her engagement ring. Also, the amount of information on the exact details and specs of the gems was much more than other dealer and they had REAL photos of the ACTUAL gem. That was something I didn't find at any other site.
