Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.
It was super easy to browse all the gemstones and find exactly what you wanted. The prices were great and the checkout process was smooth. Seems like a great site, will definitely come back to find more in the future.
