When it comes to gemstones, we all have personal preferences. Some people swear by the cool white of diamonds; others love the bold red of a ruby. We are often drawn to a specific type of gemstone, which might be to do with the stone’s meaning. Have you ever stopped to think about what your gemstone says about you?
