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 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.
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.
