Gems can be found here and are a currency unit in our competitions.
You can earn gems for free, or buy them too! Friends and family can also send you gems as a gift, and you can also send them back.
The main purpose of gems, is to spend them on any entry you want to help; to boost them in the competition to get them closer to the top 20 and into the Final Round.
You can spend your gems on a number of things whether you have an entry in the competition, or not.
