My sincere thanks for a great experience while purchasing earrings from this website. I've been looking for those earrings for 38 years. My husband found this website and I never looked back. Excellent service, knowledgeable Alberto Rojas and quick responses to all the questions I had. Received the earrings, can't wait to visit the store.

I am from Massachusetts and was told about this website by my daughter who visited the actual store earlier this year. While in Mexico, she purchased a gorgeous necklace and for her 21st birthday she requested a pair of earrings from the store via the website. At first I was concerned as I have had little experience with international purchases. The Director Alberto Rojas was supportive through the whole experience, keeping me updated on the purchase status by confirming the receipt of payment, date of shipping and then checked in to see if I was satisfied with my purchase. The earrings by the way are simply gorgeous.

It was a bunch of older women looking at really tacky jewelry. We walked in and people were totally rude to us. I guess if you're under 65 this place is off limits. Have fun grandma!

To all you young people who want some REALLY cool jewelry, look in the gift shop of the graphic arts museum... great stuff!

I am from Hawaii and just bought a set from Oro de Monte Alban through their website. The pieces are spectacular! There is no other jewelry maker like this in all of Mexico so don't miss it if you are going to be in Oaxaca or you will regret it. I have traveled a lot and I have never seen such beautiful pieces anywhere else. These are timeless, one of a king pendants and earrings that everyone will notice. In addition to this, I was given wonderful service with extremely quick responses and amazingly fast shipping.

Thanks to Alberto and the Monte Alban company!
