So I visited Sri Lanka in January 2014 with my then then girlfriend (now fiancé). Having just got engaged we visited Lihiniya Gems to get the perfect engagement ring (or at least I hoped!), having read about the store on Tripadvisor. I have to admit I was a little nervous in advance, given that I would be spending quite a lot of money and wanting to make sure I got good value for money etc. Well I wasn't disappointed - from the moment we met Mr Lahir he made us feel so welcome and comfortable, showing a genuine interest in us and a real determination to give us exactly what we wanted. We sat with him for an hour or two looking at all the gems and rings he had to offer, his wife even made us a lovely pot of tea! after a great deal of internet browsing, sketching, discussion and expertise from Mr Lahir we eventually decided upon a design for the ring. Mr Lahir had even set aside the most incredible sapphire for us as I had contacted him in advance. I really have to thank him for his patience, I can imagine we weren't the easiest customers to deal with.
Having arranged delivery to our home in Australia we received the ring a few weeks later - we were bowled over. It was all we had hoped for and more. Mr Lahir stayed in touch with us over the phone during those few weeks to keep us up to date on progress. Finally, not knowing a great deal about jewellery or gems, I was delighted to find out the ring was worth significantly more than we paid for it when we had it valued recently. So Mr Lahir really is very genuine when he promises you a great price! I couldn't recommend this place enough and we will certainly be returning. In the end not just a purchase but an experience to remember and ultimately a truly stunning ring which we will have forever. Thank you so much.
