Possessing a deep knowledge of mineralogy, Richard Ranashinha de Vulpian is a young and handsome British jewelry appraiser who owns a small shop in Japan. One fateful night, Seigi Nakata, a righteous college student, saves him from drunks who were harassing him due to his good looks. Upon learning of Richard's identity, Seigi hires him to appraise a pink sapphire ring that was left behind by his deceased grandmother. Before long, Seigi becomes a trusted part-timer at Richard's shop. Together, the duo solve various jewel-related requests from diverse clients of different backgrounds. Step by step, they unravel the hidden motives and feelings that lie within the gems in order to understand and empathize with the little stories behind each piece of jewelry.

relaxing and thrilling at the same time. i love how they explore people sentimentality involving jewels and personal backstories. i like it.


Average jewelry-themed mystery anime. Fairly good premise with mediocre execution. Unnecessary gay undertones distract from the dialogue.


it has really nice storys soo i recommend it. GO WATCH IT


Richard does things to me and I don’t care.


I liked the start, the pace was good but towards the end it started to be chaotic with also trying to fit Seigi’s father arc in the last ep.


just boring
