Gem Selects is a great place to buy loose gems and seems to have a wide selection of sizes, shapes, and color as well as reasonable prices. Though I only dabble in making earrings this is my purchase from here and I love the pieces I have bought - 6 pairs of various gems. I am sure I'll be back.
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.
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.
The selection of gemstones is absolutely amazing! The pictures allow you to get important angles of each individual stone and, from what I see, there aren't any just standard photos used unless there are duplicates of very small stones- which is completely understandable. They tend to describe their reasoning too.
