I’ve purchased from GemSelect a few times in the past year. I would not shop anywhere else. The photos make all the difference…I can select the exact color I want. I have over 100 pieces, and I’ve never been less than thrilled with each gemstone.
I really am pleased with Gem Select! I have found that most jewelry stores sell lab created stones and I prefer earth stones. Then I have the pleasure of designing my own jewelry to suit me personally! I highly recommend this site1
I believe this market could grow very large in the wake of cryptocurrencies as gold and silver become less popular. I believe birthstones will begin to increase in popularity for jewelry and meaningful trinkets. I think this website should consider another metric that gauges how "raw" the mineral/gem/stone/etc. is-- how processed it has been. Some people may want to get the raw material from a specific location, know its history, and contract someone to refine it into a personal keepsake.
