This was our second visit to Rishi at Cara Jewllers having visited him back in 2017. This time it was even better as we already had full confidence in the quality of his gems. In 2017 I bought a pair of tear-drop sapphires which I had made into earrings back in the UK. Rishi stayed in touch with me from then on, and when we decided to return to Sri Lanka in December 2019 I didn't hesitate to contact him. This time I decided to buy a pear-drop sapphire which could be made into a pendant to match my earrings. Rishi and I communicated several times before I arrived so that he had a good idea of what I was after in terms of size and price. Once in Galle, I ended up buying the most spectacular sapphire, weighing just over 5 carats. As you can see from the photos it is absolutely beautiful. I am so glad to have met Rishi. He is an honorouable, friendly person, and an excellent businessman. His networking skills are awesome! Apart from the jewllery buying (which was great fun), he helped me with other aspects of our holiday, including airport transfers and restaurant recommendations so that we weren't ripped off. If you're ever in Galle, please visit his shop, you are sure to buy something, but you won't regret it!

In Galle, my wife (a trained gemologist) chose, after looking at many examples, two blue Sri Lanka sapphires for Safri and Rishi to make into stud earrings. On returning to the UK she was delighted to view the stones through a microscope and had no surprises. Also she was delighted to go on line to confirm the laboratory certificates directly with the laboratories themselves. A review of prices in the UK also confirmed that the purchase was very good value for money. We can't recommended Cara highly enough. Hope to do more business in the future.

I had a ring and bracelet made by Rishi. The communication was always prompt and the whole process was so efficient.
I am so delighted with the pieces. They are absolutely beautiful.
When they were made Rishi sent pictures of the finished pieces and in real life they are even better!
Thank you so much for such an easy process and for delivering something so gorgeous!
I will definitely be back!

I couldn’t be happier with my diamond tennis bracelet and solid gold bangles from Rishi. All ordered from across the World, Rishi answered all my questions, checked in with me with photos of the designs I was interested in and had them made and delivered with perfect timing. The quality is just beautiful. Thank you Rishi :)

In Feb.19 I bought a beautiful peach tourmaline at CARA. I got excellent advice, a very good price, great help in choosing a design for the ring, and could pick it up 2 days later. I do hope to visit both Galle Fort and CARA again in the future. Thank you for excellent service and my beautiful ring! And I can only advice other "stone nerds" to visit this shop. 😀🇩🇰😀

I can utterly recommend Cara Jewellers. I visited the store around Christmas 2019 with an idea for a ring I had seen. For one reason or another the idea I had wasn’t really suitable, but I then worked with Safri on another idea, albeit from back home (using WhatsApp). He was wonderfully patient and had in mind the type of gemstones that I was after. Finally we settled on the ideal stone and then worked out the setting that best suited the stone and me! Because of travel restrictions due to Covid, we were not able to come back to Sri Lanka, but instead the ring was sent to me and I happily took possession of it last week. I absolutely love my Padparadscha. The ring is beautifully made too and the design really sets off the stone perfectly.

Though I would love to visit again, I would equally be happy to work remotely with Safri to create a beautiful piece of jewelry.

I would not hesitate to recommend Cara Jewellers. Purchasing jewellery is always momentous, but doing so from a distance was particularly challenging. Rishi could not have been more helpful and reassuring, providing tons of relevant information before the purchase and sending regular updates whilst the item was in transit. The finished product is stunning, and all at a very attractive price. Rishi and Cara Jewellery deserve their good reputation to grow and grow. Wonderful jewellery sold by experts in the field who are completely trustworthy. Sparkling!

I dealt with Rishi for many many years now. First in Dubai then Sri Lanka. I have just received a bespoke pendant consisting of Ruby’s and diamonds for my ruby wedding, absolutely beautiful, great craftsmanship. All my jewellery has been made especially for me, and it’s all truly amazing. I can not speak highly enough of the service they provide, highly recommend.
I send him a message and he instantly responds with ideas. This man is a true gentleman and i will continue to deal with him for as long as possible.

Having previously visited Safri and Rishi at Cara Gems in 2019 and had a great result we decided to pop in to say hello. They are such nice guys and very hospitable. Even though the padparascha ring they made for me was superb, I couldn’t help being drawn towards another ring that they had on display with a brilliant stone and a different shape. They offered to take the stone out of the ring that they had and incorporate it into a new ring of my own design.

They did this for me and produced a fantastic quality piece of jewellery which I absolutely love. They gave us a really good deal and I am over the moon with my new ring. Please see attached photos.

We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Safri and Rishi to anybody for any jewellery commission. Their knowledge is outstanding and they will always go the extra mile to assist you in attaining your desire.

Thank you once again and see you next time.

Best wishes to you both
