We were back to SXM, this time with my sister-in-law who loves jewelry. We always return to see Amit at Caribbean Gems because we trust him and know he will do his best to make the customer happy. My sister-in-law had some stones she wanted mounted including a big diamond. Amit took his time to make sure the mountings were... More

To-day we went back to Caribbean Gems at 22 Front Street in Philipsburg, St Maarten and it was definitely another excellent visit. Max was there as usual and sold us a really cute pair of emerald earrings for an excellent price. Thank you Max and it was great to see Ursula again as well. This jewelry store is definitely the...

This was our first visit to St. Maarten and can't wait to come back! We spent two days shopping and Caribbean Gems was, by far, our most favorite to shop. I'm rather picky about my jewelry and this place surpassed my expectations not only in choices, but also quality. We worked with Max who is a very knowledgeable, kind and... More

Accidentally stumbled into this store while shopping on Saint Maarten, but I can say with out any reservation that this will be a destination for us when we go back. Amid and Manu go above and beyond to ensure that their customers are completely satisfied. They will tell you while you are shopping that they warranty any purchase made and... More

Shopped for two days looking for that "special" piece of jewelry !! Ended up purchasing 3 !! Very friendly, and helpful without being pushy. Felt I got a very fair price and was extremely happy with my purchases. Emit was my sales person, and I have been in touch with him since returning to the States and will definitely call... More

We visited Caribbean Gems again this year, and we were not disappointed. Dealing with Max is a pleasure. He is knowledgeable and helpful, always offering to go the extra mile to find what we want. His best price is always the best! We have been coming to St. Maarten for over 15 years and Caribbean Gems is my first choice... More

Wow its been a long long time since I have used all those words to describe a shopping experience. My wife through 2 other couples we met on our first vacation to St. Martin about 10 years ago, met Rajesh at Caribbean Gems. Rajesh was one of the sales staff that looked after the 2 couples we were with and... More

From the moment we walked through the doors we were treated as if they've known us for years! Max asked all the right questions to know the exact diamond ring to show us! He also was sure to help us pick out the perfect earrings for me and watch for my fiancé for our wedding! I am already planning our... More

A wonderful store. The people are friendly, helpful and good prices. This would be my first stop every time on the island. I can understand why it is voted #1. Ask for Manu or Rajesh. They are great.

We have visited St Maarten twice now and both times we stopped in at Caribbean Gems. After our first visit, the great folks here became like family and you could tell by the returning patrons we weren't the only ones that felt like this. This is without a doubt the best place to purchase jewelery in the Carribean (we've been... More
