Gems are granted to the player for accomplishing achievements. Gems are used to unlock extra content in the player profile screen.


When you unlock an achievement or medal the game displays a message with the icon on the left and you're rewarded with gems, which you can use to purchase bonus content, including ornamental structures, portraits, colors, and coats of arms for your player profile.
