Gemselect had such a fantastic selection of all gems I could want, in pairs, lots, or singles, and if I wanted some gems to be just 1/10th of a millimeter bigger or smaller, they had that variance also, which is massively helpful for the specific pieces I make with their gems. I could even select different qualities of clarity and tone, which really helps my projects a lot too. I never regret a purchase made from gemselect, they help me run my custom jewelry business better with their products.
