It was our 25th wedding anniversary so my husband bought me a an anniversary ring. I am so happy with our purchase, we paid $450 U.S., but it's probably worth double that. It's a white gold band...

It is very comforting to know we have a jeweler we can trust, no matter how small or large our purchase may be. Thank you to Manu, Neelam, Rajesh, and the entire... More

During a recent stay in St Maarten it was suggested we stop in to see "Amit" at Caribbean Gems by a wonderful couple staying at our resort. While apprehensive at first and overwhelmed by the over abundance of jewelry stores on the island, we decided to check it out. So glad we did. Amit was awesome ~ he was patient,... More

You can't go wrong here. All sales people are excellant. You can barter and they stand behind what they sell. Barry is a solid dales guy. Tell him Big Mike sent you.

Max and his staff are really wonderful and never pushy. This year we went in not to purchase but to have rings resized. These rings were purchased elsewhere many years ago. He said "no charge. You are a good customer." We will never buy anywhere else.

We love visiting Ajay at Caribbean Gems on our annual visit to St.Maarten. We own a timeshare on the island and look forward to seeing what jewellry they have and what treasures we can bring home with us. It's the only place we go to purchase jewellry and have always been treated exceptionally well.
