Spent the day shopping in Philipsburg and was looking for a pair of earrings to compliment a necklace back home. Went in almost every jewelry store, no small feat, but found "the" pair I had to have here.

We have been fortunate enough to come to St. Maarten for the last 28 years, and are so happy to report that Caribbean Gems is one of our favorite stores. Not only are their prices very reasonable, they treat you like a member of their family. Hopefully we will continue this relationship for the next 28 years.

We've been very happy with the quality of the items (watches, rings, bracelets) and the friendly, attentive service we receive from Amit, a young and congenial sales associate. He has been very accommodating when we negotiate a price and quickly corrected a... More

When in St. Maarten we visited Caribbean Gems in Philipsburg and I bought a Tag watch which had been ordered for my wife. We were looked after so well; the staff are wonderful and couldn't do enough for us. So, if you're thinking of purchasing a gift for someone, go to CARIBBEAN GEMS and ask for MAX - he'll look...

For the best Gems, jewelry and service in the Caribbean this spot is a must! A trip to St Marten is not complete unless you stop in.
