For gem web photos - - it would help some inexperienced gem buyers like me to show the gem next to a common object such as a US dime for example. Two of the blue star sapphires I purchased are not suited for ring mounting - - way too small. Now I know to purchase a caret weight of about 12 to 20 carets.
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.
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.
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
I love Gemselect and have ordered from them many times. I have always been extremely happy with my purchases. In fact, I got a shipment this week and I decided to buy almost the identical set that I received this week, and that's what this purchase is!
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.
