Pieces of fine jew­elry are of­ten fash­ioned by us­ing gem­stones. Buried deep in the ground, th­ese strik­ing stones are mined and pro­cessed — cut, scoured, molded and put to­gether with other kinds of jew­elry. A piece of stone from the start that then goes through a great deal of stress to be­come the beau­ti­ful piece of jew­elry that ev­ery woman wants.

Women and jew­elry lead sim­i­lar lives. They start out early as pre­cious stones, al­ready beau­ti­ful in them­selves. Then they go through the rou­tine of liv­ing — ups and downs, lefts and rights — molded into a dif­fer­ent yet fa­mil­iar shape by each high and low of liv­ing.

And as they go through life and its many in­tri­ca­cies, women come out even more beau­ti­ful than ever, wear­ing their bat­tle scars as a sym­bol of their strength, ele­gance and per­sis­tence.

Stun­ningly gor­geous from start to fin­ish, the mag­nif­i­cence of both women and jew­elry stands the test of time. And as their sto­ries come to­gether, ev­ery story is just as em­pow­er­ing as the last.

Royal Gem, formerly Metro Jew­elry, has al­ways be­lieved that of all the things a woman wears, noth­ing tells a story quite like jew­elry. For 30 years, they have given their pa­trons noth­ing but the best finely crafted jew­elry at af­ford­able prices.

The ex­quis­ite and high-qual­ity pieces from their lat­est col­lec­tions of di­a­monds, South Sea pearls, gem­stones and gold jew­elry are just as su­perb as their wear­ers, who them­selves are the epit­ome of what Royal Gem jew­elry is all about: em­pow­ered.

The em­pow­ered women of ICanServe Foun­da­tion, a breast cancer sup­port net­work — with the all-out sup­port of Water­front Cebu City Ho­tel and Casino, SunS­tar Best of Cebu’s Best City Ho­tel, and the Ro­tary Club of Cebu — tell the sto­ries of their lives and how this dreaded dis­ease has molded them into the pre­cious and em­pow­er­ing jew­els they are to­day.

Th­ese strong and pre­cious ladies, most of whom are sur­vivors while some are ad­vo­cates, wear stun­ning jew­elry that de­notes their power, tenac­ity and beauty as they share their rous­ing life sto­ries of lead­er­ship, in­spi­ra­tion and sur­vival.
