This is worth a quick visit while in Antigua. It’s a small museum, workshop, and store. There is a brief tour—maybe 10-15 minutes—that explains about jade, its role in Guatemalan history and shows replicas of famous jade pieces. It’s short enough for kids to learn something but interesting for adults. I didn’t realize that jade was even found Guatemala. This is completely FREE and although there is a store, there’s no pressure to buy. Our guide Berny spoke great English, looked up our animal protectors on the Mayan calendar, and was very informative! Take a moment to pop in.

This museum/workshop offers valuable insight into the history of jade and its uses in ancient Mayan culture. The saff are welcoming and enthusiastic. Beautiful jewelry is on display for sale at varying and affordable prices. Lovely gallery in a beautiful setting. Our visit there was a highpoint of our time in Antigua. A "gem" of ambiance not to be missed.

Wow! This was such an amazing experience! We met the awesome Diego who gave us a free tour of the musem and shop and then introduced us to the workshop. Buying a souvenir from a shop is easy but making your own out of Jade is the real deal. Diego is so passionate and knowledgeable that he makes you feel like you’ve been doing this forever!

i walked by this shop every day on the way from my hotel to the central park, every day the nice man who works there would be standing in the doorway and ask me "do you need any jade?" which as a matter of fact I didnt. But every day he politely asked me as i walked by. The store was very nice, the product looked beautiful, but it just wasnt something which i was interested in purchasing at the time. The friendly guy at the door though definitely was nice though.

My husband has been a long time customer at casa del jade. I was visiting Guatamala for the first time and my husband brought me to this very special store to buy me a gift.

First, the showroom is exquisite. The salespeople are very nice and helpful. Not pushy at all. I was wearing the jade cross that I had been gifted and the salesman volunteered to polish the silver embellishments.

After searching the store for just the perfect item, I found and exquisite princess jade and pearl bracelet. The salesman told me the translucent gray jade was discovered the same year that princess Diana died and they named the jade after her. I have very thin wrists and the bracelet fit beautifully and was linked thus very comfortable.

The service at casa del jade was only exceeded by the beautiful jewelry. Don’t miss this amazing shop in Antigua.

We had a nice tour on how Jade jewelry is made. Jade is a precious stone found in Guatemala. This place offers free tours on a daily basis. They show you how jade is obtained and the different types available. You can buy plenty of nicely hand-crafted fine jewelry with jade stones. A nice place to go with kids.

not just a store, our group got an education about how jade is mined, its history in central American culture and a mini tour through the shop's 'museum': lovely figures from tikal and other mayan sites. many different jade colors, styles, settings to choose from and they will make an item for you if you prefer something very simple on leather or chain -- nothing is too much for the helpful, attentive and friendly staff... great shopping experience!!

Tourist trap

Just a sales pitch. Gets you excited to buy high priced items. Tour is too long. Crowded during the day.

Dear Miguel, Thank you for your comment and review. We find rather strange your comment as we have prices from $7usd and up. Also, our prices are competitive with the other formal Jade stores in town. We do have fine pieces with gold, diamonds and very special colors of jade. But it all depends what you would like to spend. We hope to see you back and check again all our different lines of jewelry and souveniers. Kind regards,
