We have been shopping at Caribbean Gems for many years. We cruise with RC and whenever our cruise ship stops at this island we visit this store. Bipin has provided me with beautiful pieces of jewelry, repair services and great customer service! Bipin has also helped me to upgrade jewelry that I previously purchased when I returned to the store... More

We visited Caribbean Gems on our last trip to St. Maarten. We were greeted by Amit. He spent a lot of time with us because I wasn't sure what I wanted. I finally found a ring I liked. He was never pushy or over bearing. Very helpful and wanted to make sure I really like what I was buying. When... More

We read all the great reviews, but we are always so reluctant to shop for jewelry due to the high pressure sales techniques. We also find it hard to trust some people. None of that was the case with Kunal Krishnani (KK) at Caribbean Gems. My wife did not know exactly what she wanted, but KK was extremely patient and... More

If your looking to make a jewelry investment on a stop in St Maarten, the folks at Caribbean Gem were most wonderful to deal with. I'd Would highly recommend them if you stop in St. Maarten!!

We were visiting St. Maarten in March while in port with our cruise. We were looking for a diamond ring and had done some research leading us to Caribbean Gems. When we entered the store we were greeted by Mahesh (Marc) who took great care of us. Unfortunately, we waited a little late in our day to stop into the... More

On this visit to Sint Maarten, I made my 3rd visit to Caribbean Gems. Amit was more than helpful! We visited for tanzanite earrings, a belated Christmas gift, and Amit patiently worked with me to select the perfect earrings to go with my tanzanite ring. After selection, he noticed the posts were loose with different lengths. Amit changed the posts... More

As a home owner in St. Maarten from the U.S. I highly recommend shopping at Caribbean Gems. My daughter and grandson accompanied me on a shopping excursion yesterday which included Caribbean Gems. We found exactly what we were looking for...a Citizens watch for my grandson, a beautiful diamond ring for my daughter, earrings for my two granddaughters and more. Ajay... More

On vacation in St. Maarten; we were shopping in Phillipsburg & many stores soliciting get you in the door, but Not Caribbean Gems! We were referred there by some local friends & we quickly learned why. Greeted by Ajay Lulla (AJ) who proceeded to assist us in looking at some jewelry when he noticed a stone missing from my wife's... More

We were in St. Martin in mid-June, and my husband bought me two beautiful pairs of earrings from Caribbean Gems. KK took care of us; he was kind, knowledgable, and honest, and he helped us choose and purchase earrings that I absolutely love. The whole experience was fun (complete with a drink), and the service couldn't have been better. We... More
