My boyfriend and I were on the island for a dock day on a Royal Caribbean cruise. We were the only ship on the island for the day, so we had the most access to the most shopping deals. I got a beautiful Citizen's watch at this jewelry store for 45% off and it was duty free. I have been... More

My husband and I were visiting St. Maarten and were so taken by the beautiful oceans that we wanted a piece of jewelry to remind us of our heavenly vacation. The first jewelry store we stopped in was Caribbean Gems. Amit met us with a smile and was so helpful. We wanted an emerald pendant and he helped us make... More

We went into the store with our prize certificate. Max was very kind, helpful and professional. He showed my daughter several selections of pendants and necklaces until she found a beautiful opal with another blue stone which will make a 16 year old happy. The prize had a 200 dollar value but when she was done choosing a pendant and... More

I have been a client at Carribean Gems since 1985. I have purchased many unique and beautiful items from them. Great people to deal with and the quality can't be beat! If you are on Sint Maarten, stop in and see the great selection.

I came to TripAdvisor looking for a place with good reviews. Caribbean Gems was rated #1 and it is not even on a list given to us by the cruise... More

We had a great experience at Caribbean Gems. Max was extremely helpful and very patient with us. We felt that he was knowledgeable and informative without being pushy (not your typical aggressive salesman). After seeing a few different things, we told him our price range and he was very accommodating. He gave us a great deal and we left extremely... More

I was helped by a woman named Pallavi. She was quick to sense that we weren't novices and preceded to quote prices well under market. For example 25-35% less. We bought a watch and a sapphire ring. You can also haggle here. The pieces are beautiful and we're very satisfied. I was also contacted afterward to see if we were... More
