We have been in this jewelry store on several different trips to the island. We have always had a good experience and this trip was no exception. A young man named Viince helped us pick up a couple of nice bracelets also offered to size some rings we had that were too large. We will be back again next year.... More

Wonderful personal service. Mad Max and his associates spent over 3 hours with me to help me find the perfect ring for my 25th anniversary. They were so patient and accommodating and really made this a memorable experience. They did not use high pressure sales tactics which was refreshing. I got a great value and am extremely happy with my... More

We have been customers of Royal Caribbean Jewelers for decades. They are the best on the island. We even purchase from them while in the States! I called them and said I needed something for my daughter's wedding. Sight unseen they sent me something perfect! We live Pallavi, but have worked with others and have always been treated fairly and... More

He showed us a necklace that was 16.1 grams and 20" in length and he gave us a price of $875 minus our trade in necklace of... More

Dear Mr. Mark Bachman, Firstly, please accept sincere apologies from my wife and I for the situation you experienced at the store. Sometimes things don't go as smoothly as we would like them to. However, I must say that I am deeply disappointed with the heading you have labeled our store - Con Artists and not reputable. For 33 years... More

We have been going to Carribean Gems for over 20 years. Max is the guy to see. We are treated like royalty every year with the best deals, quality, customer service, honesty and friendly people. We totally trust this store! It is a must to try them out.
