I would do a search in the prop section for "resin casting". You can customize the size, shape, and colour of the gems the way you want!

It's a bit of a complicated technique, but I've seen a few cosplayers use that method for Nia.

Best of luck!

I can't vouch for the reliability of this site as I haven't ordered from them yet but I think I will most likely do so within the next month: http://www.allstarco.com/shopping/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=149&cat=18MMS The problem with resin is that in a can/jar it only has a 6 month shelf life or it starts to set. I've heard complaints about resin casting materials being faulty or having set already from places like Michael's/JoAnn's because I'm sure they don't sell enough of the stuff to keep a good rotation of it. I was going to buy resin casting materials from http://dickblick.com which is where I buy most of my art supplies, but between shipping and everything else, I think the gems pre-made will not only be better in quality but more affordable. This option may work for you as well. Best of luck.
