I love gemstones and jewelry, so I jumped at the chance to take an all day class in gemology and I am so glad I did. I thought I knew a fair amount about gemstones, but I found out that my base knowledge is just the tip of the iceberg. The class started with an overview of the different types of gems and their cystaline structure, which became very important the second half of the day. I was able to ask any question I had and received an answer. The information I learned will be invaluable in the future and I look forward to taking another class in the States to learn more. If you are ever planning on buying jewelry anywhere, you should take this class!

Visited the place due to it's trust able review in TripAdvisor but the lady who is overall in charge seems to be very "high end" and kind of rather "stone face" in dealing with customer. We had no choice as we were really interested in buying the gems in the store in which we ended buying 5 stones. We would have bought more if not for this high end lady who seems to very "watchful" in we were in the store. She really need to go for some customer service class!!! She was also "high end" approach with the two poor ladies who were working in the store.

I'm not a jeweller, but love and have collected gemstones and crystals since I was a little girl. This is a lovely pleasant place, with free tuktuk to and from the hotel - as long as you don't go to any other shops, which is a shame, if you do spend money there! I purchased some lovely pieces, however, the staff were very close. Everything is locked. I prefer to just look on my own and will ask for help if I want it, not have the staff hovering over me every second. I would recommend a look here.

I tried to get registered for class but missed the “2 weeks notice” portion of the registration. I went to the store as I had difficulty registering “my way”. The staff was super nice and explained that when I tried to register as 1, i would automatically be in a private class. I will definitely register correctly the next time I come out! Staff was knowledgeable with the questions I had about other stones and stand proudly behind the owner and his integrity! Very impressive.

I stumbled across this place whilst shopping in Siem Reap. I love my gemstones and jewellery and collect back in the U.K so I was in heaven in this place! There are so many pretty stones to look at on one side which is the little museum- and on the other side of the store are the pieces you can buy for a really reasonable price. The quality of the jewellery is really good and the staff were so friendly and professional. I left the shop with a beautiful onyx ring that will forever remind me of my time spent in Cambodia :). If I had more time here I would have loved to try out the workshop to make a ring myself!
