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.
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 was pleased with the amount of information they offered along with the accuracy of such information. Navigating their website was effortless as well. Although, I wish they had a wider variety in a particular gemstone, I was satisfied overall.
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.
