I really enjoy how you can sort the types of gemstones by cut, color, and size. The website is laid out very well. To be able to sort through the gemstones on the rolling slide to the left of the page is a useful tool.
found what looks to be an incredible boulder opal on gemselect.com. Also got a bit carried away and bought more gems than anticipated. It's expensive to pay for these stones in this way, but the convenience makes it worthwhile.
I would recommend gemselect because it is the easiest way to find whatever gemstone you are looking for. they have pretty much everything so its impossible to walk away without what you went their for.
I was hoping to get something unique and special as a gift for my 14yo sister who recently moved away. A lot of fine jewelry in the stores is very pricey to be giving a young adult, but through this website I was able to get her something sentimental that will last a long time, and she can have put into a piece of custom jewelry when she is older.
