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.
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.
I really enjoy how you can sort the types of gemstones by cut, color, and size. The website is laid out very well. To be able to sort through the gemstones on the rolling slide to the left of the page is a useful tool.
I was looking for a gemstone to use in a necklace I plan to make for my mother in my metalsmithing class at college. She likes green, so I sorted by green gemstones in my price range of the cut and size I wanted, which made it very easy to see all of my options. After compiling a list of gems I was considering in my cart, I narrowed down my choice to the one I wanted with my brother and placed my order. Entering payment and shipping details was pretty standard.
