Caribbean Gems is not to be missed on your next visit to St Maarten. This is the one stop shop for jewellery on the island. Manu took good care of me, cleaned my own jewellery while I waited, told me about all the mark-ups on the other cruise-endorsed jewellery stores, and offered me terrific prices on the pieces I was...

We have been dealing with Raji at Caribbean Gems for 10 years. We look in other jewelry stores, but only buy from Caribbean Gems. They are friendly, knowledgeable and honest. They are simply the best. I wouldn't buy from anywhere in the Caribbean.

My husband and I travel to St. Maartens every year and our trip wouldn't be complete without a visit with Max at Caribbean Gems. He has always guided me in my purchase of quality jewellery.

My husband and I took a two week Celebrity cruise through the Caribbean in December. Prior to our departure I started researching the different islands we would be visiting and the different souvenirs to pick up along the way. I was surprised to learn that precious gems were such a BIG deal in the Caribbean... but were they truly a... More

We have been going to CG for the past 12 years. They are the best with their knowledge and have the most beautiful selection on the island. Mark was very helpful this year and we were so very happy with the pieces we purchased. It's a must stop if you are looking for something special.

My husband and I had been shopping for months for a wedding band and thanks to Amit and Yuna we found the perfect one at Caribbean Gems! They were so helpful and made sure that we had exactly what we wanted. We will definitely return to Caribbean Gems again!

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
