Amit and Yuga are simply the best there are. They take the time to get to know their customers and really listen to what they are looking for.

We come to our timeshare in St Maarten each year, and I have to say that the best place we have found for beautiful quality jewelry is Carribean Gems. Max is the best! We have bought several pieces from him and we are totally satisfied. Everything has appraised for at least twice what I paid for it. I took in... More

We shopped at 4 of the top rated jewelers on Trip Advisor and found the best ring for us here. We were helped by Mahesh (or Marc if you prefer) and found him easy to work with, very informative and not at all pushy. I believe we also got the best value for our money here over the other stores.... More

I am a first-timer to SXM, and was in the market for a ring. It is rare that i purchase decent jewelry for myself so I wanted something special. I was waited on by Max, a no-pressure guy who worked with me and my budget to find something i loved. I eventually settled on a white and blue diamond ring... More

We took part in a Caribbean cruise in March to celebrate 40th anniversary with my wife. I wanted to buy her a ring. When we entered to the Caribbean Gem shop, I immidiatelly realised, that this is the best place in St Martin, or even in Caribbean region. There was a wide selection of nice and valuable jewelary. The shop... More

As soon as I walked in they wanted to get us drink so we could spend money. I was looking for a three stone ring with sapfires and a diamond. They took out a setting with a diamond in it and a pair of oval earings to put in the ring. I wanted round stones which I kept repeating. Base... More

Dear Melanie P, We are very sorry to hear that you had this unpleasant experience while you were shopping on Front Street. We have been on the island for the last 35 years and this is something that does not sound like the way Caribbean Gems does business, and our reviews will vouch for that. We strongly believe that you... More

This is the only jewelry store in St Maarten you need to visit. Everyone here will go out of their way to find or make the piece you desire and ensure you are 100% completely satisfied with your purchase.

I love going into Caribbean Gems on my regular vacation in Sint Maarten, and I always deal with Max Lulla. He is friendly, honest and provides great service both during the purchase and if you have any questions after. I can't stress too much that this is a store that carries quality jewellery in a wide price range, so it... More

We visited this store and received terrific assistance from Yuje & Amit. I hope I spelled their names correctly. Their store is filled with beautiful jewelry and the quality seemed excellent. It is always concerning when you go to jewelry stores in a foreign country. We made a purchase and are quite pleased with it.
