“A truly wonderful Caymanian experience”
Review of Black Coral Clinic

Black Coral Clinic
Ranked #15 of 46 Shopping in Grand Cayman
Attraction details
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Having passed by this little shack on previous visits to the island we ventured in on this trip and met the nicest most interesting man in 'mayhem' as he called his place ! We went in expecting to find a few pieces of jewellery to choose from and we found an Aladins cave ! The marbles, the thongs, the chickens and roosters, motor bikes and books all sharing this fabulous little place along with Carey's workshop. We bought beautiful earrings and necklaces all the more interesting having been crafted by this wonderful artist at very reasonable cost.
We will pop in to say hello each time we visit the island it is a 'must do' Cayman experience to add to your list.

We stopped in to Doc Carey's our last day on the island and could have spent hours talking with him. An eccentric man with a wealth of stories (some hard to believe, yet you believe them anyways), his collections and the stories he shares about them are fascinating. He even has a phone book from a tiny town in east Texas, dated four months after my Dad's high school graduation in 1968 that has my grandparent's name, address and phone number listed! Of all the places to stumble upon something like that, it was in a little shack in Grand Cayman. If you would like to donate to his women's thong collection, he'll number it, catalog it with your info and date, and proudly hang it from the ceiling. He'll do the same if you have some marbles you want to donate to him. Truly an amazing find and well worth the visit.

Doc Carey was a stranger to me when I arrived to Grand Cayman, and after living there for two years we became dear friends. Anyone who visits the Cayman Islands should definitely check out his thong collection and his black coral masterpieces. His work is like none other.

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.
