This year marked the 70th anniversary of Cannes Film Festival and, fittingly for such a landmark event, the red carpet was awash with the most amazing coloured gemstone pieces.

Montepuez Ruby Mining Limitada (“MRM”), in which Gemfields holds a 75% interest, is located in the Cabo Delgado province of Mozambique.
