You can feel the warmth of the shop as soon as you walk into it. We were greeted by a nice guy with incredible knowledge of coral. He explained the whole process with us and showed us wonderful pieces of jewelry, plus how to spot fake coral jewelry. However, a lot of the stuff in the showroom was out of our price range, he suggested we go over to their retail shop across the way where they had several options for all price points. The girls in the shop were so helpful and patient. I walked away with a gorgeous pair of earrings and necklace.

They take you thru the whole process how they make the corral for jewelry which is quite interesting and involved. Across the street is their retail store. Nice people.

On a recent trip to Dubrovnik, we stumbled onto and into the Clara Stones shop quite by accident. We were quickly treated to a thorough and fascinating demonstration on the intricacies of hand polishing the genuine and certified red coral ... delightful. We chose to browse the gorgeous, stunning jewelry creations worthy of a runway and a museum. Being near the end of a month long trip, our budget did not permit museum pieces ... nonetheless, Vittorio and Nikola were incredibly patient with showing the less expensive pieces, and then went so far as to completely customize the 2 pieces I chose, even letting me pick a lovely red coral bead right off their workbench! Their creativity, kindness and attention to detail sent me home with 2 lovely pieces I will always treasure, as much for the memories of such a beautiful place and beautiful people as for the jewelry. If you're visiting Dubrovnik, don't miss Clara Stones, and say Hi to Vittorio and Nikola ... they'll make your day a delight! Thank You, Vittorio and Nikola!!!

If you want to learn about how coral is harvested and then made into beautiful jewelry, spend some time with the delightful Vittorio at his shop. He makes spectacular one-of-a kind pieces and is happy to explain the entire jewelry making process. It really opened our eyes, and helped us understand the difference between his pieces and the thousands you see in the tourist shops on the main street. His bracelets were a bit large for me, so his assistant painstakingly resized one for me and made earrings out of the extra stones at no additional cost. Don't miss this place and the best ice cream in Dubrovnik next door.
