Love the site. Huge selection. Have been using it for gem stones for several years. They have pictures and sometimes videos of the actual stone you are getting and a lot of information on the types of stones. The check out is a little different than most online purchases, but have never had any problems or issues. You just end up checking out through Paypal or another bank site.
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 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 have recently been updating some old jewelry and wanted to add gemstones to some of the pieces. I am amazed at the selection available at GemSelect and found exactly what I was looking for. The prices were very reasonable as well. I would definitely purchase from you again if I am in the market for gemstones again in the future.
