Went far beyond to find the perfect sapphire for a pendant. Had it ready before the ship sailed. Even included a perfect chain. Best of all made sure the setting did not flip while it rested. Will be back for sure. Wonderful salespersons.

Had a great experience visiting the store at 40 Front street. The selection of beautiful jewelry is overwhelming! Had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with Sunil at this location. He was very patient, kind and understanding. Look forward to being a return customer in the future. M.B

At last a reputable alternative to the highly marketed cruise jewelers that I can shop wiht confidence! We were spoiled to have our dear friend introduce us to Max at Caribbean Gem, her personal jeweler where she has done much business over fifteen years and had appraisals to confirm the savings. I went with diamond studs in mind, and I... More

Shopped there a few weeks ago while on a cruise. Great service, price and drinks from Sunil. I remembered the place from a cruise a few years ago but couldn't remember the name. The cruise lines try to send you to other places. Caribbean Gems is like visiting family.

In Phillipsburg, it feels as though every other store is a jewelry store. A long time friend of ours has vacationed in St. Martin for 20 yrs and highly recommended Caribbean Gems (Ajay). The jewelry is beautiful, very unique pieces. Ajay was great. I felt no pressure to buy and felt rushed only by my husband sitting next to me.... More

Stopped in to see what Caribbean Gems had whilst on our cruise. The cruise lines try to steer you to places that spend lots of advertising dollars but NOT necessarily the best value for your dollars. Rajesh has always shown me the nicest stones and the newest styles and the best prices. The sales people at CG take their time... More

Even though the earrings I was looking for were not on display I found them here! By explaining what I would like they showed me several options and in the end I had a hard time choosing. Thank you for your great help!
