The first time I saw it I knew that was what I wanted to call our business as it perfectly describes our unique line of jewellery. My dream was to open my own little store where I could sell beautiful natural gems in all the colours of the rainbow set in affordable stunning designs, therefore we mainly have silver in our shop but we do make bespoke pieces in gold and platinum. This is our first adventure of our own little gem of a shop. « less
