You can choose to buy the gems directly through the Episode app, but these are the higher priced gems. Or you can decide to pay an online gem generator to generate the exact number of gems you need for the events you want to buy.

While the second way of buying gems is not authorized by the Episode developers, it has become the route many Episode players take as they can get unlimited gems for a low price this way.
