Great place to shop for jewelry. Our sales person Marc was outstanding, he helped us in many ways, we purchased gold earing for my wife and I got a watch. The prices where the best on the island that we found. He even repaired a bracelet that was damaged at no charge. I will definitely return on our next visid

OK not so little. This place will give you the BIGGEST and best deal in all of the Caribbean. Max is great. I have been extolling upon my family for the past few years on how great Caribbean Gems is for service, quality and the variation in pieces. If you're looking for the newest watch, this is where you go.... More

I had bought several pieces from them during our trip last year as well as one on line purchase. Very happy with the quality and the customer service is outstanding. This year we met AJ -... More

I've researched prices on the internet and in other shops on Saint Maarten and various other stores in the Caribbean and in Mexico. Max beat every price. If you're traveling to Saint... More

Although our cruise ship recommended Diamonds international, family friends raved about Caribbean Gems and Rajesh. The ratings of Trip Advisor were also excellent so we went there. We couldn't be happier. The jewelry we purchased was exquisite, the prices excellent an the service fabulous. Rajesh was patient and knowledgable. I would highly recommend the store and Rajesh to anyone.

My wife and I were on our 35th anniversary cruise and listen to all the hype from the Cruise Shopping Director about Diamonds International. However when in St. Martin, we found their prices inflated. I looked at Trip Advisor for jewelry recommendation and went to Caribbean Gems and met with Amit. He was very knowledgeable about tennis bracelets and we... More

We have been doing business with Carrabbean Gems for many years working with Rajesh. Always a great experience. We return for two weeks every year and one of our first stops is to see Raj. Always remembers our names and always gives us the best prices on the island. John and Marion

My husband and I have been visiting the island of St Martin for 10 years and always pay a visit to see Barry at Caribbean Gems. I always get a beautiful piece of jewelry ( or two! ) at a great price. Caribbean Gems is always the highlight of my trip!
