Top 10 Red Gemstones

Gemstones aren't only luxury items - they are related to history, culture, science, traditions, and sometimes to expressing emotions (engagement proposal rings).
When you hold a gemstone, you hold something more than a beautiful jewelry - for example, diamonds were formed over a billion years ago, one hundred miles beneath the Earth’s surface.
