I would recommend GEMSELECT based upon the variety of gems. Gems that i didn't expect to even be apart of the selection and it gave me more options. Options in which played a key role in finding the right gem. Its always good to have options especially when trying to formulate a good piece of art work that has uniqueness. Which ultimately captures costumers eye appeal.
Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.
