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.
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.
Its my first time ordering, I've known about the site a long time and have been waiting to be in the market for gems. I'm finally taking the jump into becoming a jewler and I hope the gem stones are of quality
I was desperately looking for a sapphire to set into a ring I'm making as a gift for my girlfriend, and GemSelect was literally the only site that was clear and easy to navigate. The selection options to narrow down what kinds of stones you're seeing was super helpful. I'm quite satisfied with the stone that I selected and look forward to putting it to good use.
Buying gemstones is always a mystery because you rarely get what you see. If these are delivered exactly as shown I will be quite impressed. That feature seems very intuitive and I always like seeing the actual thing I'm buying before I buy it.
The selection of gemstones is absolutely amazing! The pictures allow you to get important angles of each individual stone and, from what I see, there aren't any just standard photos used unless there are duplicates of very small stones- which is completely understandable. They tend to describe their reasoning too.
