“Best Jewelery Store Anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Where else can you get the best prices, excellent customer service, designer jewelry, regular jewelry that you can see at many stores, but also custom jewelry, all wrapped up in a Caribbean Island!?!

Walk down Front Street in Phillipsburg and be overwhelmed by so many jewelry stores. Go only into the stores recommended by your cruise line, because that's where you've been directed, like herded sheep, to the benefit of the cruise line and that jeweler.

The other option is to go to Touch of Gold Jeweler's, where most of their business comes form return shoppers. How do I know all this? No, I don't work for Touch of Gold. However, I have been shopping at Touch of Gold for over a dozen years.

I have bought many things there. I have even had old jewelry redesigned with the help of the owner, Heeru. Add a stone here, replace a stone in an existing pendant that they have on display with your birthstone or a sapphire or diamond. You must always remember to ask. They have many loose stones that can be substituted for the one you see in an exisitng piece.

Have something unique in mind? I wanted a ring with dark green sapphires and matching earrings. An email to Heeru in advance of my trip and a selection of stones were waiting there to choose from when I arrived.

In my case, something custom like that can be played with and redesigned over a 2 week period or a quick switch of stones or a resized necklace can be made in an hour or less. Something needing more time or special care can be mailed home to you.

Honesty, integrity, no hard sales push. Heeru and her fabulous staff want to make you comfortable and happy with your purchase. Sit there over a can of soda, water, etc. and take your time. In a hurry, let her know what you want and come back later. Once she knows you and your tastes, you are part of the family and will always come back for more at the best price.

Are you or your kids looking for a diamond or engagement ring? You won't get a better price or quality than from Touch of Gold anywhere in the states. I've shown things to jewelers back int he US and they are always amazed at what I have paid for my purchases.

Her staff are knowledgeable, professional, honest and welcoming. I can't say much more about the place that has welcomed us like family, whether or not we buy something that year. Hopefully you will get to know the people that make up Touch of Gold like we have and keep coming back for more.

Even if you only go to St. Maarten once or can only get there in your dreams. shop at Touch of Gold on line or once you get to know them, send them an email with a photo of what you would like or sample sketches of what you would like made. They even have a facebook page.

Yes, if you want a special brand watch there are one or two places to go to. Yes, if you want a diamond tiara, some folks may have their other favorite store to go to each year. I have been in them all, and bought from several. There are many great jewelry stores in St. Maarten. However, the best, anywhere, is Touch of Gold.

“High Quality store!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

My wife and I return almost every year to St Maarten for more than 20 years and we "almost" never failed to stop by to say Hello to Heeru. Her jewelry is of very high quality - once my wife needed to have her diamonds cleaned and touched up at Lee Michaels and the people at the store after looking at the piece of jewelry told us it is of very high quality. They prefer not to touch it. We took it back to Touch of Gold and her store cleaned it and fixed it without problems.
We really enjoyed the relationship with people like Heeru of Touch of Gold and her family. They are trustworthy and Heeru knows all kind of diamonds very well. We refer them to our friends and family.

We have been dealing with Touch of Gold for over 20 years and have found them to be one of the best jewelers on the island. The people that work there are kowledgeable and always treat you like family. The prices are great and they back up the sale with excellent service. We always tell everyone to deal with them. We look forward to dealing with them for many years to come.

“Best Jewelers/Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

We have been going to Touch of Gold for over 20 years. It is the ONLY place to go if you are looking for jewelry purchases on the island. The staff is great to work with and you are always remembered on a first name basis, even if you only stop in once a year for those special purchases. Their service after the sale is also top notch. They are like family to us, and every year we look forward to stopping in and visiting with them and seeing their latest designs and jewelry recommendations.

A Touch of Gold was introduced to us in 2011 by close friends. We have since visited them every year during our vacation. In fact, our large vacation group, plans an entire afternoon to spend with the Touch of Gold staff. They are like family to us. We are greeted with hugs and smiles.
