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 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.
Its my first time ordering, I've known about the site a long time and have been waiting to be in the market for gems. I'm finally taking the jump into becoming a jewler and I hope the gem stones are of quality
Website is easy to navigate and the search options are great for narrowing down the choices closest to what I'm looking for. I love that all the gems are photographed individually, it helps to imagine the setting I'll have designed for each stone.
I purchased a stone as a gift for my wife. I'm waiting to see how soon I get it and how well it matches the description on the web site. Future orders may follow based on the overall experience of this one.
