To day I found some amazing opals for and order I have to complete ..... and maybe a couple I instantly thought of designs for, I can't wait to create these pieces for inventory. You have to check out Gem Select!
Gemselect has good prices and many different varieties. I like to collect untreated natural loose gemstones and this is the only website I purchase from. All gemstones are highly detailed about information, state whether they are treated or not, county of origin. I highly recommend them.
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.
