I'm personally not much of a jewelry shopper, but while visiting St. John my sister, mom, and I all purchased items in this unique shop! The quality of the items was top notch, and the customer service was simply amazing. They hand selected their Larimar stones and placed them in one-of-a-kind settings that could not be found elsewhere. Although I made a relatively small purchase, I was treated as if I had made their day. After we left, my sister lost her bracelet on the island and contacted them for a replacement. They responded immediately with photos so she could be sure it was the bracelet she wanted. They shipped them out promptly and at a reasonable shipping cost. A great place to visit if you find yourself on St. John!

Thank you for visiting us at Caravan Gallery! We appreciate your kind feedback. We're glad that everyone in your family was able to find something in our small store. We strive to have "something for everyone". It sounds like you were able to learn more about our most popular stone, Larimar, and our custom designs. We are happy we were able to replace your sister's bracelet quickly. We hope to see you and your family again soon!

So glad we stumbled into this store! We were just killing time before our ferry back to St. Thomas and we happened along this little store. I was looking for a new bracelet for myself when my wife showed me a J-Hook bracelet in this store. It turns out this type of bracelet is specific to St. John and is made by a local artist. We liked it so much that we wound up buying 5 identical bracelets - one for each member of our family - as a keepsake from this family vacation. Great jewelry at great prices with great service. We couldn't ask for more!

The people here are so helpful and go out of their way to help you find the thing that is JUST right for your needs. The beautiful selection is unique here. Not another *yawn* tourist souvenir trap. I thought for sure I wouldn’t be able to afford anything because the whole experience is a cut above. Sure enough there were lovely things I could buy for others and myself they didn’t look inexpensive. I took a special trip back to this island on a second day just to go here again. You won’t be disappointed. Enjoy!

I almost didn’t go up the stairs....so glad I did! This jewelry store has a great selection and the ladies were a terrific help in putting together just the look I was searching for. The buyer even hand cut a chain for me while I was there. Best part of all, I walked out with some unique things from the Caribbean for a really great price!

I have visited this shop 4 times in the last 5 years and have never left dissapointed. This is my first time reviewing so I will try to keep it brief.

1. Most of the pieces are extremely affordable. I am a graduate student so I have to try and pinch pennies where I can. I never feel as if I am paying too much for jewelry at Caravan. They have a multitude of beautiful pieces under $300.

2. The staff is extremely friendly. Not once have I been pressured into a sale. While most who have visited St. John are familiar with the concept of "island time" and a more relaxed demeanor, the staff at Caravan are there to help YOU. Every time I visited I never felt like they were trying to upsell me, they just wanted to help me find what I wanted.

3. When I buy a gift for someone I try to have that gift represent where it was from. I feel as if Caravan really tries to embrace the island culture and feel with their pieces. Many have island themes (turtles, geckos) and their larimar selection is amazing.

4. Larimar. This is kind of related to the first and third points, but the larimar selection is why I keep coming back to Caravan. They not only have one of the larger selections of larmiar jewelry on the island but they are all good pieces, not just a standard box of larimar rings cut into different shapes. My girlfriend now has a hook bracelet, necklace, ring, and earrings from Carvan and loves every one of them.

TL;DR Every time I visit St. John I visit Carvan and it is always worth it.

So excited to be back on St. John and visiting my favorite jewelry store, Caravan Gallery. They have such a wide variety of beautiful items at reasonable prices that it's my go to place for Christmas shopping. I bought my first hook bracelet here several years ago and keep coming back every time we make our annual visit. Thanks for the great jewelry that my family and friends cherish!

This was our 6th time visiting Caravan Gallery, as it was our 6th vacation to St John. We always find quality jewelry at affordable prices! The first year I purchased a "J" hook bracelet, I love it and never take it off except for on my return trips to Caravan as they polish and "tweak" it back to new. This trip they brought me up to date on the remarkable warranty! I was thrilled! The staff is very kind and informative, willing to let you leisurely browse and answer any questions you might have.
One year, after renewing our wedding vows at Trunk Bay we purchased a pretty double heart ring, that too never comes off and has held up well!
Thank you for a great shopping experience! The location is so family friendly with lots of surrounding shops and restaurants and an awesome brewery where everyone finds their place to be!

My friends had recommended Caravan, and I now see why they speak so highly of the store. Their jewelry pieces have a distinct character, using local materials such as Larimar, a Virgin Island gem, and red coral. Totally stunning jewelry set in sterling silver, as well as gold. Many fun items for grand children as well, my 5 year old grandson will be thrilled with his shark tooth, and my 2 year granddaughter so happy with her mermaid beaded purse. And of course grandma is DELIGHTED with her purchase of both larimar and coral jewelry. Excellent workmanship, great, friendly and knowledgeable store owners. I'll be back.

Returned to this beautiful gallery after 13 years to look for a new Larimar piece of jewelry. They have an extensive selection of jewelry and other collectibles, and I had to return for more. I purchased a beautiful Larimar necklace with about 20 stones set in sterling silver that lays just right at about 20 inches. Pricing was appropriate for the piece and craftsmanship. Many gorgeous offerings in this store.
Friendly staff, and per government guidelines they were observing mask, hand sanitizer and social distancing.
