I bought my stones and designed my jewelry myself, starting with my stone selection. They are my grandchildren birth stones that I will pass to them later. They are part of me then I will be part of them. Something I created with love for them.
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've been searching on this website for a while, constantly considering different gems. The prices are great, check out and shopping cart are easily readable, product pricing and selection is amazing. Everything is very easy to navigate and easy to understand.
