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
I'd say that the information in the descriptions is rather sparse, and the state of the gems/their color treatment or lack thereof is vague and unimpressive. Nevertheless they've got a great variety of offerings. The only area I can see that they could improve is in turquoise, which could include unstabilised cabs or at least specific names relative to their mines as opposed to appearances. Thanks
Ive been shopping here many times before, so navigating around was easy. I am accustomed to the quality of the items and that's the main reason I come here. When I need non heated stones I know I can count on GemSelect being authentic. I trust them because I double check their quality. And never had problems with them. And yes I do recommend shopping there to some of my clients who are "less knowledgable" of industry. GemSelect is so user friendly they're great for beginner gem shoppers!
