This is a good size for a center-stone in a ring design.
For gem web photos - - it would help some inexperienced gem buyers like me to show the gem next to a common object such as a US dime for example. Two of the blue star sapphires I purchased are not suited for ring mounting - - way too small. Now I know to purchase a caret weight of about 12 to 20 carets.
Buying gemstones is always a mystery because you rarely get what you see. If these are delivered exactly as shown I will be quite impressed. That feature seems very intuitive and I always like seeing the actual thing I'm buying before I buy it.
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.
I wanted to buy some gems because I think theya'd be cool to have and this seemed like the best website to buy them from. The website is a bit old looking and could use an update to the user interface but otherwise ita's great.
Wide variety of gems in various cuts, sizes, and prices.I found a variety of small gems with good looking cut and clarity and a really great price.Really great overall selection, but a little dated looking site and filtering / navigation options. Only other downside is the only 2 shipping options leaving you paying quite a premium if you want your order faster even for a small order.
