“High end jewelry store, not uniquely Guatemalan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

This is a lovely store located across the street from the Casa Santo Domingo hotel. They appeal to an affluent clientele, although I found their selection and prices to be in line with what you might find at Nordstrom or Bloomingdale’s nicer costume jewelry department. In fact I saw some earrings there by Alexis Bittar that I had purchased at Nordstrom earlier this year.

It’s a fine store to stop by if you like to shop for jewelry and don’t care for the ubiquitous jade outlets, but you may not find anything there you can’t already buy for the same or less money in the U.S.

“Get your Money's Worth when Shopping for Jewelry in Antigua!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

If you're in Antigua, and if you're into jewelry (or not!), you MUST visit this quaint little jewelry shop!!!

The prices and variety are unmatched to any jewelry in Antigua (as my girlfriend is an addict to jewelry, so we shopped around during our visit), variety, quality and attention to detail in their product line is evident upon entering the establishment - not to mention their outstanding customer service. With regards to price and quality, I would say this is the best of both worlds between the US and Guatemala, as I had a chance to converse with owners for a while (both US educated, and highly skilled in the craft - one of them even boasting experience from Tiffany's). After our little chat, I found out that they not only carry known contemporary brand jewelry at competitive prices, but as well make personalized jewelry pieces (the owners showed me some awesome customized engagement rings!). Prices start at about $20USD.

If you want to feel you got value after your purchase, this the jewelry shop you should be at!

See for yourself and go!

“A gem in front of Santo Domingo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Best jewelry store in Antigua! Completely different from the traditional jade jewelery stores that abound in Antigua. During my visit I met the owner Cristina, she was extremely helpful selecting a beautiful piece of jewelery for my wife. The store offers contemporary jewelry and even custom designed pieces. Highly recommend visiting!

“Beautiful Jewelry Boutique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I went to Antigua with my husband and stayed at Casa Santo Domingo. I didn't know about the Jewelry Boutique until we passed by and the beautiful garden at the entrance dragged me in. Besides the perfect location, right in front of the hotel, all I can say is that the line of products is AMAZING! The most sophisticated and fashionable jewelry, everything was stunning. Plus, great customer service and complimentary beverage.... Highly recommended.
