I was desperately looking for a sapphire to set into a ring I'm making as a gift for my girlfriend, and GemSelect was literally the only site that was clear and easy to navigate. The selection options to narrow down what kinds of stones you're seeing was super helpful. I'm quite satisfied with the stone that I selected and look forward to putting it to good use.
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 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 am a bench jeweler, is part of may business to find company to supply the best quality that I am looking for. I think you are the one for this kind of product. May be a discount to be a retailer will be better but I belive that the merchandise I order came fast and will be covering all my expectation's.

I make wire wrapped pendants for birthday presents, and always feature a birthstone as the base for the project. GemSelect has a wide variety of shape/size pieces to fit any budget. A detailed description of each individual stone is perfect for those searching for particular stones for their application, and information on stone treatments and the like are phenomenal.
I was pleased with the amount of information they offered along with the accuracy of such information. Navigating their website was effortless as well. Although, I wish they had a wider variety in a particular gemstone, I was satisfied overall.
