Rahman and team Made my two custom rings to perfection. They took time to choose gems with me and met my timeline of making the products in 3 days! They were humble and patient in agreeing to refinements and delivered the final rings within another 4 days. I am thrilled with the results and highly recommend.

Wonderful service and beautiful jewellery. My ring was made in 3 days and hand delivered to me. The staff member caught a bus 3 hours away, as we were with a tour group. I chose the stone (pink sapphire) and then it was designed and made. Photo does not do it justice.

Our tuk tuk driver brought us here. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted - white gold sapphire earrings. Rahman pulled out exactly what fit that description, no nonsense, no wasting our time. I found what I wanted but with a green stone, so I asked if he could swap out sapphires. Which he did, and delivered much more quickly than promised. A great price, and a very happy result!

Called here today after a recommendation from a friend. Was definitely not expecting the top quality service we got. Rahman and his team are the best I've seen in the business. If you want some first class gems you should visit the Gem mine. Very trustworthy and honest shop. There aren't enough businesses like this one left.
Staff are so friendly.

I visited this place very recently and had an excellent experience here. I felt very comfortable with the staff and highly satisfied with the products. The Staff are very professional, friendly and honest and they really value the customer. I got a Genuine Product from them and they also gave me a superb product with nice craftsmanship. A very genuine place to do business. I'm really impressed with the team and the products. Apart from their business, the approach of dealing with tourists with personal care is very lovely and outstanding. I wish to go there again if I go to SrI Lanka. And I highly recommend this place to get genuine products and service.

I had such an awesome time in the store trying on different rings and necklaces. The store has quite an array of stones; I was like a child in a candy store. The staff was very friendly, patient and helpful. I had a blue topaz pendant designed and made for me. The end result was breath taking, what an incredible workmanship. Getting to the store was easy as the store arranged the transport transfers. I would recommend this store to anyone looking for quality stones and great service.

On our many visits over the years, Mr Rahman, Mr Yousoof and his team have provided us with impeccable service and nothing is ever too hard for them to accomplish. The array of gemstones and jewellery is dazzling.
The honesty that prevails amongst every staff member is the important factor and you will never ever be duped into buying anything of mediocre quality.
I recommend before you go anywhere else, make a trip to Gem Mine and you will never be disappointed.

Had a wonderful experience with the gentlemen here. On a family reunion trip, we visited on a whim and found the proprietors very friendly and welcoming. We wound up purchasing several nice pieces between us, as well as some very nice loose gemstones. Mr. Rahman and the other gemologist there are very knowledgeable and will work to find the piece to suit your needs. Very fair pricing and no pressure tactics. Highly recommend a visit if you have a taste for nice gems and jewelry while you are in Colombo.

Great service. Hotel driver took me to the Gem Mine and waited while I spoke with Jewlery designer. After finding the right size and style for me, he crafted a custom pendant, ring and necklace! One of a kind. The experience was great and I highly recommend. No pressure to buy, great service and they delivered them to the hotel once they were made.
