If you want a gem that you can trust to not be treated, or if it is it's disclosed this is the place! There's something for everybody. I really like knowing that the picture of the item is the one I'm buying, not a sample or stock photo. If you make jewelry, buy gems here! You can even buy a gem and have it set by a jeweler. Again, they have an amazing inventory, and prices are more than fair. You won't be disappointed! I just wish they sold uncut gems. Sometimes I just want a specimen in the crystal form. I'm surprised they had no quartz from Arkansas, but they have a great selection of anything I've ever looked for.
Easiest website to find what I'm looking for as a starter gem collector. Many years in precious metals I decided to expand my interest. This website makes it easy to search exactly what I'm looking for with great description of what I'm purchasing.
found what looks to be an incredible boulder opal on gemselect.com. Also got a bit carried away and bought more gems than anticipated. It's expensive to pay for these stones in this way, but the convenience makes it worthwhile.
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.
I’ve purchased from GemSelect a few times in the past year. I would not shop anywhere else. The photos make all the difference…I can select the exact color I want. I have over 100 pieces, and I’ve never been less than thrilled with each gemstone.
