Welcome to GemSelect, a family-owned business in Thailand, just minutes from one of the world's most dynamic and well-known gem markets, Talad Ploy in Chanthaburi.
Established in 2003 through verification by Dun & Bradstreet - the world's leading commercial information network - GemSelect is a BBB A+ accredited business that enjoys a renowned reputation for supplying top-quality gemstones to buyers from all over the world. We have long-standing memberships with the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICGA), the Thai Gem and Jewelry Traders Association (TGJTA) and the Chanthaburi Gem and Jewelry Traders Association (CGA) – all of which regard us as a quality provider of natural gems and a valuable source of gemstone information.
Our reliability is recognized by AIGS (Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences) - Asia's most trusted authority on gems - who feature our website as a top recommendation. Moreover, our integrity and success rate is evident in the countless positive testimonials and high ratings from verified customers on Bizrate.
Since our start, sixteen years ago, we have shipped over 350,000 individual items, to over 120 countries, making us the paragon of the online gem market. Our location enables us to procure and guarantee a huge inventory of a vast range of gemstones, from common precious and semi-precious gemstones, to extraordinary specialty pieces.
If you live in Chanthaburi and are not somehow connected to the gem trade, you may be dead. This city is absolutely bursting with gems and we know exactly where to get the best. Our procurement, appraisal and support staff consists of generations of locals who have grown up in this market and know it inside and out. Some say that, in business, "it's not what you know, it's who you know" but our team members are experts in both sides of this business. This proficiency, combined with our outstanding collection of all natural gems, account for our exceptional ratings from two of the world's standards in gemology and gem certification: AIGS and BGL (Burapha Gemological Lab).
Given our proximity to the gem market and our team of experts, we have it all right here under one roof: cutting and polishing, appraisals, high definition imaging, lab certification and global shipping to anywhere in as little as 2 to 4 days with FedEx International Priority Service. In the rare event that we don't have it, we can get it or it doesn't exist.
We stand by the quality of our gemstones and support services enough to accept 100% of returns made within 30 days, no questions asked. If you're looking to learn about gems there is no better resource than our exhaustive library (Gemstone Information Center) where you will find articles ranging from clearly-defined gemological terms, to suggestions for settings, and even about the mystical and healing properties of gems. We don't like to boast but, when it comes to buying and selling gemstones, we are the best and we want to share the generations of specialty expertise and knowledge so you can follow your passion for gems.
Our location to one of the world's most important gem markets affords us a competitive edge that we translate into value for you, the customer, but it also endows us with a responsibility to maintain a high level of ethics as we curate this fantastic collection of gemstones. It is a responsibility that we embrace because this is a business built by the families of this community and those abroad.
In this business trust is one of the foundations and we never compromise our integrity. But we don't expect people to take our word for it; so, we endeavor to earn your trust through our impeccable service. From expert procurement, to AIGS and BGL certification, secure transactions and shipping, money back guarantees, and certified customer ratings… we don't drop the ball; your gems are in safe hands until they reach you and start a new thread of history. Gems are as timeless as the principles upon which we have built our business – trust, integrity, precision and passion.
GemSelect can offer you excellent quality gems at the best wholesale prices because we buy our gems close to the source. You can be confident in our fast, reliable shipping; our excellent customer service; and, above all else, you can be sure that you receive the best quality gemstones!
We offer gemstone certification from AIGS (Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences) and BGL (Burapha Gemological Lab), and guarantee that all of our gemstones are natural and as advertised. Furthermore, we take high definition, virtual photographs and videos of every gemstone we sell. There are no stock images and we offer multiple profile views of each item. No other gemstone website provides as much detail as us. This is because we know that, when it comes to ordering colored gemstones online, you need to know exactly what you are buying. With GemSelect, what you see is exactly what you get!
100% satisfaction guaranteed. If you're not happy, we're not happy!
We have a 30 day, risk-free, money back policy on returns.
- All the gems we sell are accurately and precisely described to the very best of our knowledge, including gem type, size, weight, shape, color, clarity and origin.
- We fully disclose all gem treatments and enhancements, and guarantee that all of our items are natural gemstones.
- All photographs are virtual images of the gemstone you will receive. We use professionally calibrated imaging equipment and software to ensure that we show the most accurate, high definition, representation of the actual gemstone on your screen. We do not manipulate any pictures for the sake of a quick sale! It is in our best interest, and for the benefit of our customers, to not portray any item online to be better than it actually is, because every return costs us money and raises our expenses.
- We offer an ironclad 100% risk-free 30 day return policy. There are no questions asked, no restocking fees, no merchant fees and no credit card transaction fees. Additionally, there are absolutely no hidden insurance fees and no risk whatsoever.
- All payment and credit card information is handled on a secure (SSL) page by either Kasikorn Bank or PayPal. We have no access to your credit card or financial information - no personal information is stored on our website.
- We will never sell your email address, browsing patterns, or any other personal information.
If you have questions or concerns, you'll be happy to hear we employ in-house, English-speaking, customer support representatives. Thomas and Joseph are our support team, and if you need help with anything, they'll go above and beyond to assist you.
