Well fell in love with the site right away ordered two many items I knew I would return a few. Decided I wanted to invest in a sapphire emerald or ruby after more research. The diamonds that I received we just stuck together just ordered one more I will have 10 in all diamonds two yellow six white. I'm so very happy I didn't know what I was going to keep and definitely diamonds were winner.
I have found what I think is the best kept secret for buying stones, and I have to tell you about this gem stone site I found! There is a large selection of stones and crystals, and the best prices I have found for nuummite! They make it incredibly easy to find exactly what you are looking for by shape, size, cost, and clarity. I have already purchased two stones and I will be checking the site frequently from now on for everything and anything that I am hoping to find. They have individual pictures of every stone with different views so you absolutely know what you are buying.Honestly, I was hesitant to purchase something the first time BECAUSE the prices were so competitive and below anything I found elsewhere and because the stone was both being purchased online and from another country. I received the stone ahead of shipping schedule and when I received the package, it was in not one but two separate zip lock bags. One had the certificate of authenticity and details about the stone. The second had information about the stone itself. I was so impressed with the quality of the stone and that it was definitely the stone I picked out on their site, that I ordered another stone without hesitation. I will be using this site to purchase gifts for everyone I can think of! lol
Always a fantastic selection of gemstones in an affordable price range from inexpensive, nice collector's stones to high fashion jewelry pieces. I always trust that the item will be as represented. I purchased a kyanite today and know the stone will be genuine and high quality.
Ive been shopping here many times before, so navigating around was easy. I am accustomed to the quality of the items and that's the main reason I come here. When I need non heated stones I know I can count on GemSelect being authentic. I trust them because I double check their quality. And never had problems with them. And yes I do recommend shopping there to some of my clients who are "less knowledgable" of industry. GemSelect is so user friendly they're great for beginner gem shoppers!
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.
Love the site. Huge selection. Have been using it for gem stones for several years. They have pictures and sometimes videos of the actual stone you are getting and a lot of information on the types of stones. The check out is a little different than most online purchases, but have never had any problems or issues. You just end up checking out through Paypal or another bank site.
