“In his “Persian Motifs”, the Russian poet Esenin, infatuated by a beautiful girl, calls her by the name of a precious stone – Lal. It is the same name he uses to portray the sublime color of a woman’s lips. Color, beauty, and the gem are fused in a single word which itself pays homage to the nobility of femininity.” Extract from “Gemstones. Terra Connoisseur” book by Vladyslav Yavorskyy
