I was pleased with the amount of information they offered along with the accuracy of such information. Navigating their website was effortless as well. Although, I wish they had a wider variety in a particular gemstone, I was satisfied overall.
My significant other told me about gem select, he knows I have a small business in making jewelry. I often use these and experiment with new designs and seeing the wide variety of options really is amazing. I love all of the items I see, but sometimes I want more than one of the selection and there is only one of that type. I understand it takes work to put these together so I am not complaining. I would recommend this sort of thing to my friends that might be interested in making jewelry or to others that are on forums say on reddit or other sites.
I decided recently to start a gemstone collection! I searched online for a reputable gem merchant and found gem select! Their selection is gorgeous and I'm excited to receive my first package! Checkout was a breeze!
