Sapphire is the birthstone for September. Sapphire, with its Mohs hardness of 9, second only to diamond, is one of the most valuable and wearable of all gemstones. Famed for its brilliance and rich blue color, sapphire actually occurs in a wide range of colors, including pink, yellow and green. Sapphire is every color of corundum except for red, which is ruby. The name corundum comes from the ancient Sanskrit "kuruvindam", while the name "sapphire" comes from the Persian word "safir". Sapphires are seen as the guardians of love. When given as a gift they enhance love and attune the spirits. Also, sapphires have been used to banish envy and jealousy as well as promote fidelity in marriage.

When buying high-price items - like gems - it can be scary you are being scammed. GemSelect has no hidden strings. I tested this by purchasing very small, but they have won me over. Their prices are upfront and the quality is as expected. They also package their gems well, and ship incredibly quickly. Their website is easy to use, and they have quick customer service.

I was looking for very specific loose gems for my collection and some loose gems to add to a piece of jewelry I want to have made and Gem Select had everything I was looking for and the selection and price ranges were outstanding. I will absolutely purchase from this vendor again and often. I am so very pleased with the items I received.
