Most of the time I order from gemselect.com is for custom orders I get the pleasure to freely design for. Clients always love the gems. They also arrive in a timely manner, just as in the pictures, great prices. Also enjoy window shopping the really pricey ones :)
I have shopped with Gem Select for over 15 years and have always had an outstanding customer experience. The images of the stones depict the exact color, cut and quality (eye visible) and the descriptions precisely provide the provenance and gem specifications, etc. You know exactly what you're purchasing. They also consistently provide excellent customer service.
I continue to use GemSelect due to their rapid customer service & shipping response, accuracy of what is described in store description, and variety of options (all price ranges). Love it for a starting out gemstone collector/investor.
I was hoping to get something unique and special as a gift for my 14yo sister who recently moved away. A lot of fine jewelry in the stores is very pricey to be giving a young adult, but through this website I was able to get her something sentimental that will last a long time, and she can have put into a piece of custom jewelry when she is older.
I was looking for gemstones to use for making jewelry for birthday gifts. It was east to find what i needed with the birthstone information and quick and easy to locate gems. Ive never bought gems from anywhere else. This is a good site
