I would like to thoroughly recommend Shalala. We bought a Silk on silk Kasmir rug at a fair price, after a bit of haggling, but you expect no less in Goa. Since getting home we have not stopped admiring the fine work that the Kasmiri family put into it over a period of 2 years. With over 1200 knots per inch it oozes quality. Shalala are to be complemented on their service and after sales, where they sent a certificate of authenticity and details of the family who worked on the carpet. Give them a try.

This place is renowned for its carpets that look great but we didn't buy any. However we did buy all our presents for people in one hit and had great fun negotiating an overall price. Jewellery is very good quality and they are very helpful. My wife tried on an Emerald and Diamond ring she liked the design of but wanted a sapphire version. Out came a bag of quality Sapphires and the Emerald was replace with a chosen Sapphire overnight. Pashminas were excellent quality and we picked up a beautiful antique hand painted book illustration. All this plus some reasonable silver earrings for a relative. great bunch of people and good fun to haggle with. Highly recommended.

We visited this place and had a look at the carpets, the staff were very attentive and the refreshments were welcome. While the carpets were amazing it seem difficult to convince the staff that a very small carpet was all we could physically accommodate in the small room we intended. We bought a silk on silk carpet and were happy with the price (although we are still waiting for the email with further info as to the manufacturer, possibly not correct information methinks) Beautiful goods throughout the showroom and some beautiful jewelry which we purchased. Had we not still been waiting for this email we would have given a 5

My partner and I have visited a few shops in Goa. Shalala had not only the best selection, but as well the best prices and very professional service. We ended up buying 3 beautiful silk on silk carpets. About 2 weeks later they were delivered to our doorstep in Europe! We didn't explore any of the other parts of the store, we were only interested in carpets. But from what I could tell - you can find everything here! highly recommend to visit in Goa!

I bought a diamond ring from Shalala three years ago, flew back to England, had the ring valued for insurance purposes and was so surprised to learn it was worth 80% more than I had paid for it. The jeweller in England was amazed at the quality of the stone for the price I had paid. I returned the following year and Shalala cleaned my jewellery free of charge. Friends of mind bought a sapphire ring and they are very pleased with their purchase. Found them to be knowledgable , friendly and very helpful. Would certainly buy jewellery from them again.

NOT WHAT I PAID FOR AND NOT WHAT THE CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY SAYS

757395194

I have a dated and signed certificate of authenticity for an " 18ct white gold ring set with a 1ct best quality Burmese Ruby and best quality diamonds" (April 2013). 1 year after I bought it I had to return to Goa (further expense) to have the white gold band remade as it wasn't white gold as I had requested (April 2014). This was the only time the ring had been out of my sight. I recently went to have the ring valued in my presence with a highly reputable jeweller only to be told that not only is the ruby NOT Burmese it is flawed so NOT best quality. I paid in the region of £1,100 for a ring which is not what I was promised or what the certificate or receipt says. I do not trust the ring to arrive safely should I return it by post and my friends who were due to take it back for me couldn't travel because of COVID 19 travel restrictions. I cannot bear to wear the ring as my experience with Shalala by email and telephone (further expense) has spoilt my whole experience with them. I have wasted my money and have a ring I hate, Ideally, I would like a full refund and postage paid for me to return it. So, beware buyers!
