My wife has been waiting two days to come shop here. We were impressed with the wide selection of creative jewelry pieces and gifts. She went on a veritable shopping spree - the deals were impressive too. Karen did a great job making sure we didn’t go home with wrong product in one case. It was greatly appreciated.

When I came to visit Placencia in early January with some of my friends, and I decided to stop in and check out the store. I love the setup, especially the mirrors 😍 Karen was so helpful and professional when it came to all of our questions. The store is beautiful and well kept and all the jewelry are beautifully made. It's an inspiration to see that a woman is the head of such a beautiful brand.

We are so thankful we popped into this little treasure box (no pun intended lol). The owner is so nice and for what you get the prices are amazing! She didn’t have exactly what my girls wanted, so she custom made them on the spot 😊 My girls and my wife loved it. If you like jewelry, I highly recommend stopping in to say hi to Kaj or one of her lovely staff.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience. Your girls totally impressed me with their friendliness and outspoken news, they made my job easy because they knew exactly what they wanted! Lol. It was so cool to find out after I created for your girls, that they has been playing with my daughters at the park and for a few days and neither of us had any idea! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to create for your girls and wife and for the laughs along the way, we appreciate your support. Best wishes with those power-girls, they have you out-numbered lol!

We stopped in here on a whim on our last day in Placencia. This is a female-owned shop that handmakes all the jewelry in it. My friends and I all walked out with jewelry. They even changed around charms on the spot for my friend's earrings. I'd definitely recommend stopping here if you're in Placencia. You won't be disappointed!!

Yessss! I'm so happy you stopped in on that whim and even happier that you took the time out not only to share, but also to recommend us! Yay! Thank you! 🤗 We really appreciate the opportunity to create exactly what your friend wanted by customizing it on-the-spot for her and we're pleased to know that all of you walked out with something. We do put so much over into each piece that we create by hand, so knowing that you loved our jewelry fulfills our purpose. Oh and yes, we're a woman owned and fully operated business. Thanks for mentioning that, we're proud to agree 💕 Enjoy your treasures! Xo, Kaj

Beautiful Jewelry but even more so is Karen, the person at the store! As I came in, I was greeted with a smile, and the most amazing thing is that I had been there before and to my surprise Karen remembered my face... she said I looked familiar, but ofc, I had been there before because I love their products. They are beautiful and unique... will definitely be there again as soon as I put up some more cash to increase my Kaj collection 😁

Bought a beautiful name chain for my daughter’s birthday and she was blown away. She screamed with excitment when she opened that bag. Jasmine assisted me and she was the sweetest soul i’ve ever met… Kaj and her team are amazing at what they do and you could tell the amount of love they put into their work. Im def shopping there again and am more excited that she’s opening a studio here in Caye Caulker…

The art they made me was magnificent. In love with the star studs, crescent moon and sun hoops, and moon ring. Exceptional service from Jasmine from TeamKaj. She ensured that my experience with their establishment was smooth.

The Lionfish is an invasive species and it is threatening the reef. Kaj makes the most beautiful and imaginative jewelry from the Lionfish so you can help the environment and bring home a wonderful souvenir. The shop is air conditioned which makes it easier to spend time admiring all of her very unique creations. A "must visit" in Placentia.

Kaj makes such gorgeous Lionfish jewelry! So happy to see such lovely, creative pieces made to help in the fight against this invasive species. Earrings, bracelets and necklaces combining pearls, coral and lionfish fins. Kaj is so talented and knowledgeable, I was truly impressed! Please visit the Treasure Box when you are in Placencia and buy Lionfish jewelry to be part of the solution!
