White and Colorless Gemstones
If you're thinking about purchasing white gemstones (colorless gems), there are several excellent gem types to choose from. Of course, colored stones are prized mostly for their attractive colors, there will always be a need for white gems and diamond alternatives. When diamonds aren't practical jewelers turn to white sapphire, quartz and topaz (among others). So whether you're in need of a diamond substitute, or just any variety of white or colorless gemstone for use as melee or accents to bring out the color of an existing center gemstone, there are a range of white gemstone options to choose from, some more durable than others. The most affordable and abundantly available is white colorless quartz and white topaz; while white sapphire, zircon, goshenite beryl and white spinel are also excellent white gemstone options.

My experiences with Gemselect have always been quite satisfactory. The items are accurately photographed, a detailed description and provenance provided and the compare feature helps customers select the best gem for their needs. I have often recommended this source and will continue to do so.
I ordered several specific items from Gemselect. Items are always packaged very carefully to protect the content. Gemselect always encloses a card of authenticity which documents the entire stone, its size, clarity, etc. All of the items are as they were described. I would highly recommend them to anyone who’s in the market for a gem.
I frequently check the GemSelect website for a variety of gems. I've been very satisfied with the selection and quality of the top rated gems. All of the purchases I've made have turned out beautiful pieces of jewelry.
