Some people by gems by color or price, but for many, it is best to buy gems by shape and size - especially if you're in need of a gem to replace a previous item that was lost or damaged. Calibrated Square shapes, facet cut and cabochon gems available now in 5 mm x 5 mm size range. Shop a wide range of calibrated gemstones by size online at wholesale from GemSelect.
As a general guideline, when it comes to 'calibrated' gems, they are not meant nor expected to be cut to exact measurements. For calibrated gemstones weighing under one carat, most jewelry settings will accommodate a gem which is within 0.2 mm of the calibrated size in order to fit a standard setting. For gemstones that weigh over one carat, a larger variance is acceptable, often around 0.3 mm or slightly higher even. This small variance can usually be accommodated for standard style settings. Round-cut gemstones should also have a greater variance in acceptable size when it comes to calibration; in fact it is usually possible to mount a round stone of any size in the closest standard setting.

Gem Select has a great selection of products and it is very easy to navigate the website and find what you are looking for.
Gemselect had such a fantastic selection of all gems I could want, in pairs, lots, or singles, and if I wanted some gems to be just 1/10th of a millimeter bigger or smaller, they had that variance also, which is massively helpful for the specific pieces I make with their gems. I could even select different qualities of clarity and tone, which really helps my projects a lot too. I never regret a purchase made from gemselect, they help me run my custom jewelry business better with their products.
I was looking to get some stones to help turn into a necklace for my daughter, but other sites didn't have exactly what I wanted, I found it on GemSelect though, and I think it will turn out really really well!
Once again, the picture of the gem shown did not match the stone I received. I believe they are the same stones, but the pics shown were enhanced some way to show the beauty and coloration of the stone. I could NOT see the coloration. I should have realized that would happen.
