I very much enjoy shopping for the wide variety of beautiful gems on GemSelect. I am excited to receive my purchases and eager to purchase more in the future. I see great value in the gems I have seen and agree with the spot-on pricing as opposed to other sites I have visited.
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.
O.K. experience. Pictures could be a little better, offer more views, especially full face on, to get a better idea of how a stone would look mounted in a ring, i.e., how centered the star is. The prices seem pretty fair.
I actually really enjoyed using this website. Easy to order and so many options to filter through all of the gem types. I am very excited for my shipment to arrive so I can inspect the gem. I am very likely to order again
