There are several legends that accompany the history of the gems, since the times of the Babylonians. At the time of Mithridates it was believed that these stones guarded the destiny of men. With the Egyptians developed the belief that they had therapeutic virtues for a "sensory" connection that bound them to the planets. With Christianity, the gems became "bearers of divine beauty", thanks to some passages of the Holy Scriptures.
Come and admire the charm and magic in our stores, moreover, as George Eliot, pseudonym of the British writer Mary Anne Evans said, "the gems have a life inside them: their colors speak, tell what words do not they manage to say ".
