Botched seller, doesn't provide valid NGJA certificate or the like, overpriced at least 2 times, believe even 3 times - keep this strongly in mind. Spent several hours bargaining for at least valid price, still far from fair. Cannot be trusted. Avoid. And never give them advance payments - they will not return it as well as they will not keep their promises of delivery/completing your oder on time. Very, very bad experience

I came to Sri Lanka with the hopes of purchasing a beautiful Ceylon Blue Sapphire!! And I did at Sorborn, and spent a lot of money for what I was told was a blue sapphire! But very very sad to say, when I returned home and had my blue sapphire appraised, I learned that it was NOT what they told me it was, it was a tanzanite! Aside from the fact that they tried to pass off the stone as a sapphire, the craftsmanship of the white gold and the way the stones were cut and set was EXTREMELY poor quality!! My jeweler here in the US said he would have to scrap the gold and build me an entirely new ring and that would cost me thousands of dollars more than the thousands I had already spent on the ring!!!
For 5 months now, I have been communicating back & forth with them, waging a dispute with Sorborn and my credit card company finally won, and Sorborn has finally agreed to return my money, since I sent the ring back to them! And I appreciate it that Sorborn has finally done right by me! I realize now after speaking to many jewelers that unfortunately Sri Lanka, although having many many beautiful stones, is not the place to purchase jewelry. Many of the stones are cut very badly, there is no care taken to test each stone, so they know exactly what they are selling the customers and the gold craftsmanship is also very very poor in many ways!! Be sure to know what you are looking at before you purchase!! I realize now that I should’ve just purchased a loose stone and brought it home and had it mounted by a reputable US jeweler! I’ve purchased many pieces of gorgeous jewelry from many different countries over the years and have never ever had a problem, until now!

Visited the Kandy branch. Selected a sapphire and when I went to pick it up the next day (it needed to be set on a ring) it was clearly a different stone. Then I picked a different one, and found out the salesman was lying about the quality (said it was unheated while in fact it was).

I travel annually to Sri Lanka for a month and have bought many many things here at Sorborn and have even had some things custom made here as well. Viraj Sorborn is a reliable jeweler who values his customers. He has stones of all qualities and for each price category. Try buying these stones in America or in Europe- no chance to get the same price.
In Sri Lanka they sit on the earth from which they come; a woman’s paradise!

I had an expensive handcrafted gold and sapphire ring made at Sorbon Gems and Jewelry but when I returned home several of the stones fell out of the setting.
I contacted the shop privately but they have not acknowledged me.

We have brought numerous pieces of jewellery from Viraj at Sogorn jewellery and have always been very pleased with our purchases
We have brought royal blue sapphires and other stones which we have had valued in Australia for more than we purchased
Viraj and his staff have always been helpful and professional
We can completely recommend them if you are wanting to purchase beautiful jewellery
Thanks
