I'd say that the information in the descriptions is rather sparse, and the state of the gems/their color treatment or lack thereof is vague and unimpressive. Nevertheless they've got a great variety of offerings. The only area I can see that they could improve is in turquoise, which could include unstabilised cabs or at least specific names relative to their mines as opposed to appearances. Thanks
I purchased a stone as a gift for my wife. I'm waiting to see how soon I get it and how well it matches the description on the web site. Future orders may follow based on the overall experience of this one.
Most of the time I order from gemselect.com is for custom orders I get the pleasure to freely design for. Clients always love the gems. They also arrive in a timely manner, just as in the pictures, great prices. Also enjoy window shopping the really pricey ones :)
Website is easy to navigate and the search options are great for narrowing down the choices closest to what I'm looking for. I love that all the gems are photographed individually, it helps to imagine the setting I'll have designed for each stone.
GemSelect is my favorite place to purchase gemstones. They have the largest selection and the best prices. I've got some real beauties from gemselect! I love collecting all the beautiful colors of garnet and GemSelect always delivers. They have some of the most amazingly gorgeous Tsavorite garnets.
