I've seen gem shrines in the blood moor in normal, so yes, they can appear from the start of the game.

The blood moor is also the best place to look for gem shrines, as several kinds of shrines cannot spawn there. Gem shrines still take longer to find than 3 flawless gems though.
To quote a post I made months ago after doing 17 hell blood moor runs:

There are always five shrines in the blood moor. There are no armor, combat, resist fire, resist cold, resist lightning, resist poison, mana, portal, or monster shrines. I didn't see any poison shrines, but I suspect they can appear in the blood moor, but are as rare as exploding shrines because they are so similar.
