You don’t have to miss out either, it doesn’t matter if you live in London or not, if it’s regarding chocolate then it involves everyone, so you can celebrate too!
We love chocolate because it smells good, tastes good, there’s many variations and flavours, you can use it to make other foods taste amazing, and at times it’s our comfort food. When we think about it, it really brings us all the joys our most prized gemstones do… so, why do you love chocolate?
There are some similar qualities between chocolate and gems though, so we’ve picked our favourite brown coloured gems especially for you.
