“Prices used to be good, but no more.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

I first shopped Venus Jewelry in Bangkok 25 years ago. They displayed fine gems and their prices reflected world prices for gold and reasonable prices for gems. A
little bit was added for workmanship and many deals were struck. Now, after negotiating and seeming to get a discount, they are maintaining a 100 to 200 percent markup. I can get prices and same quality at home, why come here? They are resting on their well earnes past reputation and hoping for unaware buyers that have listened to past buyers recommendations. One travels this far to get a serious bargain. I will shop at home and support our economy since they are now charging too much for workmanship and markup. Do your research on the internet before you go and they dazzle you with Bling. They have lost my future business.

“Only place to purchase Jewelery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We were lucky to be taken to Venus Jewelry during our tour of Asia. A number of pieces were custom made for us and they even came to the hotel to ensure fit during the process. When we returned home and had the jewellery appraised we were absolutely delighted and since that time we have had many pieces custom made for us. We send pictures and they design and ship to us. The level of workmanship is outstanding. Our family ring has been reproduced for all the women in our family by Venus and shipped. Though we have not managed to return to Thailand, we have had Thailand come to us.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Great range Everything I asked to see there was a range of choices. Pricing was competitive. Staff great to deal with. Make sure you call them to pick you up as it is not near the main train routes.

“Very friendly wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

I found this jewelry shop after a trip adviser search. The reviews looked very good. I am in BKK to marry and wanted not to get ripped off with inferior jewelry especially when purchasing diamonds. We had 2 rings made to the designs we wanted and this was no problem for venus. The staff were fantastic with a pick up drop off service and refreshments etc. from looking around the shop walls many many foreign diplomats and defence have visited the store. When next looking at jewelry I will re vist venus without second thought.

“I always visit Venus Jewelry when I am in Bangkok...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

I have shopped at Venus Jewelry for almost 20 years and have never been disappointed. During my most recent visit, the staff remembered me and provided an excellent deal on a gift for my wife. A couple of years ago, they made a custom ring from sketches that I provided via e-mail.Venus has been consistent over the years and have always offered a great value. If you are looking for jewelry during a visit to Bangkok, I encourage you to visit Venus Jewelry.
