I wanted to buy some gems because I think they’d be cool to have and this seemed like the best website to buy them from. The website is a bit old looking and could use an update to the user interface but otherwise it’s great.
My significant other told me about gem select, he knows I have a small business in making jewelry. I often use these and experiment with new designs and seeing the wide variety of options really is amazing. I love all of the items I see, but sometimes I want more than one of the selection and there is only one of that type. I understand it takes work to put these together so I am not complaining. I would recommend this sort of thing to my friends that might be interested in making jewelry or to others that are on forums say on reddit or other sites.
I was looking for a cabochon multicolor labradorite stone, suitable for a pendant. I found gemselect.com & their computerized sort by price helped me find the stone i was looking for! Yes, I will come back when i am looking for gem-quality stones.
this is my first experience with GemSelect so I can’t really comment on much more than the website & purchasing experience, which was great. there were a few stones I went to look at that didn’t really have descriptions about them (their properties or spiritual benefits for example) like some of the other stones & I thought that was interesting & I wondered why they didn’t. but all in all, the purchasing experience was easeful & I can’t wait to receive my gems & see if the quality is as beautyfull as they seem to be in the pictures.
