    I have researched and found out that gemstones in India are much cheaper, and as I will be in India by the end of this year it will be best for me to purchase the gemstones from India itself.

    I would like to know the best place to buy gemstones in India.

    I would also like some advice on whether it is a good idea to order them online or go to the shop itself to purchase them?

    Local jewelry shops would be your best bet, especially in the big cities. There are always gemstones being sold there, and for a surprisingly lower price compared to everywhere else. It's a good way to get souvenirs and stuff, and you will also have your pick in a diverse selection, as there are more than one of these places in the more popular areas. It's a common place to attract tourists, and maybe that's why they are cheaper, since it is a major theme in India, and you can always guarantee that a tourist would want to take home a piece of their culture.

    This shop, 9 Gems, Bangaluru seems a genuine shop as they have the life time buy back policy. They also have experts that can help you choose. You have to be careful while buying gemstones as there could spurious stuff in some shops.
