Gemselect has good prices and many different varieties. I like to collect untreated natural loose gemstones and this is the only website I purchase from. All gemstones are highly detailed about information, state whether they are treated or not, county of origin. I highly recommend them.
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.
I was looking for a gemstone to use in a necklace I plan to make for my mother in my metalsmithing class at college. She likes green, so I sorted by green gemstones in my price range of the cut and size I wanted, which made it very easy to see all of my options. After compiling a list of gems I was considering in my cart, I narrowed down my choice to the one I wanted with my brother and placed my order. Entering payment and shipping details was pretty standard.
My only consideration for this particular purchase is that it is from a lot and I don't get to select the specific gem I want. However, I trust GemSelect and they all look good in the picture provided and are all the same approx. size and weight. My only real concern is the star in the star ruby, as I want one that is both clear and shapely.
