I really am pleased with Gem Select! I have found that most jewelry stores sell lab created stones and I prefer earth stones. Then I have the pleasure of designing my own jewelry to suit me personally! I highly recommend this site1
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.
I have recently been updating some old jewelry and wanted to add gemstones to some of the pieces. I am amazed at the selection available at GemSelect and found exactly what I was looking for. The prices were very reasonable as well. I would definitely purchase from you again if I am in the market for gemstones again in the future.
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.
I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.
