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.
