When buying high-price items - like gems - it can be scary you are being scammed. GemSelect has no hidden strings. I tested this by purchasing very small, but they have won me over. Their prices are upfront and the quality is as expected. They also package their gems well, and ship incredibly quickly. Their website is easy to use, and they have quick customer service.
