My only consideration for this particular purchase is that it is from a lot and I don't get to select the specific gem I want. However, I trust GemSelect and they all look good in the picture provided and are all the same approx. size and weight. My only real concern is the star in the star ruby, as I want one that is both clear and shapely.
I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.
