I don’t know where to start I am so blown away by the impeccable, warm, friendly and professional service we received from Isam Salie and his wife. The story started back in mid January 2020, following a New Years Eve declaration from my partner that 2020 would be the year he would propose to me. So I set about doing the homework to find the perfect ring! I knew what I wanted, so was looking for a bespoke jeweller who could make my ideas reality. I decided to focus on India and Sri Lanka because they know their stuff and offer more value for money than we get in the U.K. I came cross the reviews on trip advisor for Sallies and made contact. From the very start I was made to feel important and no request was too much. From photographs and videos of each stone in different lights, the process was so personal. We chatted regularly on WhatsApp and as the design evolved we unfortunately fell into a global pandemic. The plan to make the ring had to go on hold for quite a few months but as soon as the world started to go back to business, my ring was in the workshop being created. I cannot stress enough how absolutely breathtakingly beautiful my ring is and the workmanship is fantastic. The compliments I get are numerous. Although the picture doesn’t do it justice, have a look at the photo for yourself. I am a very lucky woman!!. We will definitely be back in touch with Isam for our wedding rings and other pieces of jewellery in the future. We have decided Salie’s are now our personal jewellers for life!

Before leaving for Sri Lanka, I investigated jewelry shops in Sri Lanka, so that I would find a trusted dealer. Over and over again, Salie’s Fine Jewelry & Gem Stones appeared in my online search as the #1 trusted jewelry shop. Isam Salie, the owner of this family owned business, was personable, helpful, informative, and accommodating. I learned a lot about gem stones in Sri Lanka, and walked away feeling that I made a friend. Finally, although I threw him a last minute curve by ordering earrings to match my custom made ring with a pink sapphire (I couldn’t resist once I saw my ring), Isam was very gracious about it and mailed my custom made earrings to my home in another country. I highly recommend Salie’s Fine Jewelry & Gem Stones.

We bought a Ceylon sapphire royal blue. It was a nice experience in the shop, Islam was lovely and the customer experience is very important to him. We enjoyed the experience and felt valued. I was very concerned about getting ripped off and did alot of homework to go to this shop. I was not disappointed. My wife picked a beautiful stone 1.5 carat and it was delivered to out hotel. I was a little disappointed I was not told it had been heat treated but we resolved this and Islam was very professional. I got the stone home and had it valued and was very happy with what we had paid. If you are in Sri Lanka this store is definitely worth calling into and if we go back there will definitely be repeat business.

Customer Service: Excellent, committed & service mindedness to all their customers Collection: A prestigious wide variety gemstone store with budget friendly and certificate ensured quality gemstones Location: Easy to locate and at the centre of Colombo Testimonial: Its a value for money store, i purchased a beckoning eye clean glittering blue sapphire gem and the ring ordered was crafted elegantly with precision facesetting and cutting within 3 days. I was given assurance regarding quality of gem alongwith valid gemstone certificate. Detailed Experience: It was in December, when I finally visited this store, after a lot of detailed research of the whole market of gemstones in srilanka. This place had elegant interiors and an extremely positive atmosphere. The owner as well as staff was very courteous and friendly. I was attended by Mr. Abdul who diligently helped me finalize my blue sapphire which I trialed for 2 days. I then placed an order for my ring with Mr. Abdul again who patiently helped me choose the best ring designs for my gemstone. My ring was ready in quick time within 3 days and a very fine job was done by their inhouse goldsmith! I thank their entire team for ensuring greater customer satisfaction. I am a proud owner of this beautiful marvel for more than 6 months by now and i am satisfied with the gem quality, colour and its precision. Highly recommend this store, go for it.

They helped me choose the stones I wanted and helped me design the piece I wanted, got it made in super quick time (as I only had a few days there for a conference). I love the piece that I had made and every time I wear it I get compliments and I have fond memories - the people were so nice that each time I wear it I feel a smile and remember the kindness.
