I really enjoy how you can sort the types of gemstones by cut, color, and size. The website is laid out very well. To be able to sort through the gemstones on the rolling slide to the left of the page is a useful tool.
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 liked how many types of gems were listed, and the variety of looks and types for each. Pretty good prices, too. Especially on shipping.I haven't received my items yet but I'm very much looking forward to them, and highly considering buying again for myself when I've got the money to spare.
