I order from GemSelect when I want quality gems, complete disclosure, easy ordering and fast delivery. They are 100% reliable. They also have the largest selection of gemstones I know, including all colors, shapes and sizes in both faceted gems and cabochons. Their pearls are gorgeous and again, you know what you are getting. I would highly recommend GemSelect for your gemstone and pearl purchases.
I keep coming back to this website. Navigation is nearly perfect, they just need to add an option to select/unselect the 'treatment' of crystals. And I would like to be able to save all the photos of crystals I'm purchasing and not just the first one. This site is I believe is best out there for in depth variety of sizes and colors. I give it 10/10. If they don't have something I need and I have to shop somewhere else I keep coming back here just to compare prices vs clarity just so I can size up other crystals from somewhere else. This site sets standards!!
The selection of gemstones is absolutely amazing! The pictures allow you to get important angles of each individual stone and, from what I see, there aren't any just standard photos used unless there are duplicates of very small stones- which is completely understandable. They tend to describe their reasoning too.
Have always had a fascination with gemstones, and was looking for a good piece of labradorite. this site had a huge selection, and it was really hard to choose from, they also had a lot of gemstones you don't normally see, or are very hard to find. would totally use them if you're looking for pieces for jewelery.
My only consideration for this particular purchase is that it is from a lot and I don't get to select the specific gem I want. However, I trust GemSelect and they all look good in the picture provided and are all the same approx. size and weight. My only real concern is the star in the star ruby, as I want one that is both clear and shapely.
