I was looking for a gemstone to use in a necklace I plan to make for my mother in my metalsmithing class at college. She likes green, so I sorted by green gemstones in my price range of the cut and size I wanted, which made it very easy to see all of my options. After compiling a list of gems I was considering in my cart, I narrowed down my choice to the one I wanted with my brother and placed my order. Entering payment and shipping details was pretty standard.
I purchased a stone as a gift for my wife. I'm waiting to see how soon I get it and how well it matches the description on the web site. Future orders may follow based on the overall experience of this one.
I bought my stones and designed my jewelry myself, starting with my stone selection. They are my grandchildren birth stones that I will pass to them later. They are part of me then I will be part of them. Something I created with love for them.
For gem web photos - - it would help some inexperienced gem buyers like me to show the gem next to a common object such as a US dime for example. Two of the blue star sapphires I purchased are not suited for ring mounting - - way too small. Now I know to purchase a caret weight of about 12 to 20 carets.
Website is easy to navigate and the search options are great for narrowing down the choices closest to what I'm looking for. I love that all the gems are photographed individually, it helps to imagine the setting I'll have designed for each stone.
