Johny's is the real deal: honesty in gems
Nov 2019
We have visited Johny's Gems for 24 years - my how time flies! Samart, Johny's successor-son, is one smart, well-educated, affable and honest businessman, and his small crew is very well educated in the art of customer service. It is not the fanciest of jewelry stores, I am certain you will agree, but its longevity as shown in its gallery of photos and business cards speaks volumes to its character. Sheesh.

A Jeweler You Can Trust
Nov 2019
I wanted to get another piece of sapphire jewelry to go with the pieces that I bought here in 2018. I found the perfect piece and Samart made it into a pendant for me and then delivered it to our hotel a couple of days later. He picked us up at our hotel since it is a little difficult to find the store. It is very near the temples and Grand Palace so the BTS and Metro do not go too near there. Just almost across the street from the store is a temple that is the residence of the head monk (I don't remember the exact title) in Bangkok. Samart told us about it and recommended that we go there and walk around. Samart is very gracious and drove us to the Grand Palace after our shopping trip and dropped us as near to the entrance as possible. I highly recommend Johny's Gems. They are trustworthy and skilled jewelers. They've been in business in Bangkok for many years.

Trip Down Memory Lane
Nov 2019 • Couples
Left Bangkok 47 years ago and this was the first time back. My parents shopped here several times when we lived here (our mom was the beneficiary!) and I had to stop by to see it again for myself. Place had not changed a bit! Still had my father’s picture up on the wall! Joseph (Johny’s son) was there and he was extraordinarily gracious and helpful. How can you not like jewelry shopping when a cold Singha is offered?! Bought a beautiful opal ring for my wife which they delivered to our hotel later that day after it was properly sized. Very competitive prices and the service was spectacular. Thank-you Johny’s Gems for a great day!

Three Generations of Great Service
Sep 2019
I went to high school in Bangkok in the '60s when my parents were directed to Johny's Gems by satisfied customers. I returned in the '70s and again in '01 with my family. Somehow the staff recognized me and treated us like visiting royalty. My family's picture was still on the wall from the '60s. They brought in lunch and soft-drinks as we browsed their wide collection of jewelry and black sapphires. Yes, we spent a bundle. It's a "don't miss shop" in Bangkok. My last visit was in 2001.

Mr Sue is a Gem!
Nov 2018 • Solo
I visited Johny's Gems as part of my book research to get the low-down on the tourist gem trade in Thailand. Mr Samart Sue is friendly and professional - a gemmologist, GIA trained so you know you're in good hands. His shop is very well established with a clientele list and wall of fame that is very impressive. His shop offers a bit of everything - natural gemstones as well as some fashion and synthetic gems. I have recommended Johny's Gems in the Gemstone Detective travel guide for tourists - so you can arm yourself with the key questions you must ask when buying.

I have been going to Johny's Gems for 15 years. Before going to Johny's I was worried about being ripped off because I was not a gem expert. After meeting Samart and his wonderful staff I was put at ease. He has wonderful pieces in the store and will custom make anything. I buy jewelry from him every year and I am always pleased with the craftsmanship and price.

If you visit you will see the quality of his work. Also ask for some of the delicious rice he gets from a nearby vendor

A Second Visit to the Jewelry Store After 30+ Years
Feb 2018
Johny's Gems has served many American military, dignitaries and other famous people. Just look at all the pictures on their walls of famous folks who have shopped there! It is a family owned and operated business. Following Johny's death, his son Samart took over the management of the store. Also his brother Joseph works with the business. He picked us up at our hotel and returned us there after several fun hours of shopping. I was lucky that Johny's wife Annie was working on the Saturday we were there. She is retired but said she comes in sometimes just so she doesn't get bored! She is so lovely and warm and very helpful with jewelry selection. I found a pair of beautiful sapphire earrings and a ring to match. There is no pressure to buy. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I felt that the prices I paid were very good for the quality of jewelry that I bought. After wearing the earrings that day, I realized that the clasps were too tight on my earlobes. I called and Samart said that they would pick up the earrings at my hotel and adjust them and then return them that evening. I was a little concerned because we were leaving to return to the States early the next morning. But no reason to worry. The earrings were returned and I can now wear them comfortably. When in Bangkok, you should visit Johny's Gems for an honest, reliable jewelry shopping experience.

Kind service and trustworthy jewelry store in Bangkok
Sep 2017 • Solo
If visiting Bangkok, you cannot miss this family-run jewelry store with portraits of past customers including US generals, Catholic priests, US presidents, and CEOs from around the world that have visited Johny and Annie throughout the 60+ years this store has been opened. Signed name cards from past clients, mostly army and US expats, covered the cabinet walls. Their son, Samart, took great care of me ordering custom pieces as well as assisting me in sending stuff back home to the US. Their shop also has a great selection of antiques from brass to oriental wood pieces to rare china porcelain. A rare gem in Bangkok that you can trust in buying jewelry and home decor. Thank you for the memorable experience! - Jacob & Susan.
