Any time I want a really nice gem to put into a ring or a pendant, I go first to GemSelect. I have tried other vendors and the quality is not even close. Besides, I have to take what I can get from them. With GemSelect, I can do a search on size, shape, gemstone, color, cost, etc. or any combination. And their prices are very reasonable. Wow! All this and quick delivery, too!!
Items ordered were fantastic but, I received a note with the order about shipping. Am I being charged more for shipping? I realize the items were shipped from Thailand but if there are extra shipping charges please inform me beforehand.
