I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.
Wide variety of gems in various cuts, sizes, and prices.I found a variety of small gems with good looking cut and clarity and a really great price.Really great overall selection, but a little dated looking site and filtering / navigation options. Only other downside is the only 2 shipping options leaving you paying quite a premium if you want your order faster even for a small order.
I really am pleased with Gem Select! I have found that most jewelry stores sell lab created stones and I prefer earth stones. Then I have the pleasure of designing my own jewelry to suit me personally! I highly recommend this site1
