I believe this market could grow very large in the wake of cryptocurrencies as gold and silver become less popular. I believe birthstones will begin to increase in popularity for jewelry and meaningful trinkets. I think this website should consider another metric that gauges how "raw" the mineral/gem/stone/etc. is-- how processed it has been. Some people may want to get the raw material from a specific location, know its history, and contract someone to refine it into a personal keepsake.
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.
this is my first time using this site , it was truly a joy, it explained each gemstone their use and value. i have been looking for weeks a site to start my purchase . truly a great find def will spread the word via my social media outlets.
I make wire wrapped pendants for birthday presents, and always feature a birthstone as the base for the project. GemSelect has a wide variety of shape/size pieces to fit any budget. A detailed description of each individual stone is perfect for those searching for particular stones for their application, and information on stone treatments and the like are phenomenal.
I can't comment on my experience until I receive the item. When I receive the item,if it was well represented by the picture, I will be very happy. I will share my experience with all my friends and I will definitely use gem select again.
