Had a 3 hour class together with my girls. They were a bit overwhelmed by the collections in store. The french young lady was very nice to the kids and we found the morning passed quickly.

Visited in the morning, just to browse the collection of gems. Manager very courteous and good with explanations. Kind with our kids. Bought a few uncut stones for kids treasure box. Unobtrusive, you can go and feel safe that you won’t be pestered into buying.
