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.
I was looking for a gemstone called Sphene/Titanite and found it on GemSelect. They had many gems to choose from and had good prices. I received my order a little later than expected but given that it's coming from overseas I wasn't too worried. The 2 gems I received are beautiful. I have to say that I have no gem knowledge- I am a novice and I ordered the Sphene for healing purposes, so I am hoping they are real. I have no way of confirming if that is true. But they are beautiful!
I have found what I think is the best kept secret for buying stones, and I have to tell you about this gem stone site I found! There is a large selection of stones and crystals, and the best prices I have found for nuummite! They make it incredibly easy to find exactly what you are looking for by shape, size, cost, and clarity. I have already purchased two stones and I will be checking the site frequently from now on for everything and anything that I am hoping to find. They have individual pictures of every stone with different views so you absolutely know what you are buying.Honestly, I was hesitant to purchase something the first time BECAUSE the prices were so competitive and below anything I found elsewhere and because the stone was both being purchased online and from another country. I received the stone ahead of shipping schedule and when I received the package, it was in not one but two separate zip lock bags. One had the certificate of authenticity and details about the stone. The second had information about the stone itself. I was so impressed with the quality of the stone and that it was definitely the stone I picked out on their site, that I ordered another stone without hesitation. I will be using this site to purchase gifts for everyone I can think of! lol
My significant other told me about gem select, he knows I have a small business in making jewelry. I often use these and experiment with new designs and seeing the wide variety of options really is amazing. I love all of the items I see, but sometimes I want more than one of the selection and there is only one of that type. I understand it takes work to put these together so I am not complaining. I would recommend this sort of thing to my friends that might be interested in making jewelry or to others that are on forums say on reddit or other sites.
I was looking for gemstones to use for making jewelry for birthday gifts. It was east to find what i needed with the birthstone information and quick and easy to locate gems. Ive never bought gems from anywhere else. This is a good site
