Came especially to purchase for wife’s birthday. Assistant playing on her phone- could not have cared less about our custom. Did not even raise her eyes. Shame! Around the corner benefited in excess of 1000 euros.

This steel factory and workshop demonstrate some old but famous techniques of sword and knife making and gold plated steel jewellery. Good place to get a cultural insight.

The workmanship is superb and they are very creative. He was decorating a small bowl when we were there. Unfortunately it has become a tourist trap with very pushy sales personnel. I found earrings (which was what I was looking for) cheaper elsewhere.

You actually get to see the craftsman working on small intricate pieces in the studio workshop! The gift shop has a wide variety of items available from the quite expensive hand-crafted pieces to others that are machine made and much more affordable.

That is the problem of travelling as part of an organized tour. Despite you are not talking about my shop (damascene-damasquininado is my little store downtown Toledo) I agree with you. You visited Damasquinados Suárez, that is a bussiness outside the walls of the city,...More

Went here whilst we were in Toledo, to see if we could find some interesting jewellery to take back home as souvenirs. There were some men sitting doing the intricate metal beating in the store, so we were able to see first hand how it's...More

This location has beautiful, hand-crafted, high-quality jewelry and other finery made on-premises. In fact, if you're there at the right time, you'll see the craftsmen creating new work. You'll find many spectacular pieces in a wide-variety of products. Best if you speak Spanish, but they...More

What an experience watching these craftsmen at work. There are 3 grades to this jewelry. First is the hand made then there is the one made by the junior jewellers and then there is the one by machine which is cheaper.
