Trusted eBay Gemstone Sellers for Beginner Gem Collectors

This is a list of eBay gem sellers that I’ve personally bought from and verified the authenticity of the gemstone.

Please note: It IS possible for a trusted seller to accidentally sell you a fake gem. This is often an honest mistake on the part of the seller and I’ve had it happen. Make sure to contact the seller if you find you’ve purchased a fraud, any reputable seller will either send a replacement or refund.

Always check the rating of an unkown seller. Anything below 97% should not be trusted. However, sometimes seller ratings temporarily fluctuate below that. Always check the negative reviews and look for people claiming the gems to be fake.

Gem identification is a very lengthy topic, and is different for each gemstone, so I will not include that information here, but in later posts.
