“WOW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

If you are looking for unique local jewelry, then you must pay a visit to "Doctor" Carey. The experience is difficult to describe in words. You simply have to go and absorb the ambiance. Between the huge marble collection and women's underwear collection (see attached photo's), you will get a glimpse of a man who has had a truly interesting life. The black coral pieces are unique and reasonably priced. It was our last stop before leaving for the airport and it left a big smile on our faces and a memorable sendoff for a great week of scuba diving, local fare and a very relaxing vacation experience. P.S. Women who donate underwear on the premises get a free piece of jewelry.

Great stories...beautiful coral jewelry. Detail to craft is amazing. Bring a thing or exotic marbles to add to the collection. Good clean fun with one of a kind pieces!

“Awesome time With Doc Carey!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

The Black Coral Clinic is a hidden gem on the Southside of the island, not far from Georgetown. He will tell you stories anout Cayman, or show you how he makes and polishes Tiki's out of Black Coral. He is an interesting person, and is a must see when you visit Grand Cayman!

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2011

Doc Carey as they call him on the island is a rare breed... you will not forget your visit to this place... in a very good way. Hey is a great story teller and believe's in people. If we ever go back to GCI we will visit him for sure.
