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.
I really enjoy how you can sort the types of gemstones by cut, color, and size. The website is laid out very well. To be able to sort through the gemstones on the rolling slide to the left of the page is a useful tool.
Gem Select makes it super easy to just find a particular stone that meets your requirements. They have a large taskbar with many different filters to really narrow down your search by cut, clarity, size, even color! I've never seen another site that has all those options.
