About 13 years ago, I went on an Alaskan cruise with my girl friend and ended up stopping in Ketchikan where I bought her a watch and some other jewelry that she prized for the subsequent 13 years. Then suddenly the watch band clasp needed replacing but the cost did not justify the purchase vs the cost of buying an... More

We purchased a diamond ring, we had no intention of buying any jewelry on the Island but the prices were great and hard to ignore. Our sales girl, Jyoti was wonderful, very professional that we walked out with a diamond ring. I am a very Happy camper, love my ring and definitely will return for a 2nd ring. Thank you... More

I bought a Caribbean/rainbow topaz in white gold ring and it was such a great purchase. Beautiful ring and guaranteed satisfaction. This is the #1 jewelry store in Philipsburg so go there and not the tons of other places. AJ was our salesman and he was so helpful and worked within our budget. Highest rated jewelry store !

Had a great time in St Maarten and purchased a few trickets to remember the trip. The staff at Caribbean Gems made my experience seamless and a pleasure. Since we visit the island often, we will definitely be back to this store!

After visiting all of the jewelry stores on Front St. waiting for something to catch my eye, I found a beautiful gold and diamond necklace at Caribbean Gems. They have a large selection of jewelry, and their designs are more classic compared to some of the other stores. Max was very helpful and patient (we came back twice before deciding... More

My experience with buying a watch: No push and hustling, polite but interested service - my preferences and price range was heard and the style I wanted was correctly assessed. A very positive experience in the hectic street. Finally: I ended up buying two watches because of the great deal that was proposed buy buying a combo.

One of my trillions fell out of my engagement ring, not originally bought from Caribbean Gems, I asked if they could make it into a solitaire. They not only did a fantastic job on that they made me a pendant with the remaining trillion. Great job and thank you.

My wife and I have been to St Maarten several times over the years and each time we make time to stop at Caribbean Gems. Our most recent visit was to celebrate my wife's birthday and our 30th Anniversary. I told her on her birthday that she would have to wait to get the rest of her present until we... More
