We had a Wonderful experience in both Caribbean gems stores. Sonny was absolutely wonderful- whether you spend 900 or 9000 you are treated like royalty. During our stay we returned to the stores several times to make more purchases. Their styles are beautiful and unique. Thank you sonny and ace for making our purchasing experience so pleasurable - we will... More

Very nice jewelry. Kunal is the best sales person. They shortened my new bracelet on site. There are two stores near each other on the same street. Kunal even gave us refreshments. It was a positive experience.

We had such a great experience at Caribbean Gems! They are so nice there and have a beautiful selection:) I found an exquisite diamond ring, and couldn't be more thrilled with it! They searched and searched for a chain that my boyfriend wanted in a longer version, but we had to leave the next day, so they are going to... More

my wife and I have been dealing with Caribbean Gems for over 20 years and have never been disappointed with our purchases. When you come back, they will clean your jewelry and make it look like new again. Ask for Rajesh, tell him Mary & Roger sent you!

This jewellery store is certainly among the best. The staff are courteous, professional, knowledgable, and not at all pushy. They are more than willing to advise, suggest, and let you take your time to make your decision. Thank you, Pallavi. I'll be back! Highly recommended.

This unpredisposing shop located directly across from the Holland House Hotel is chocked full of gorgeous jewelry items which are offered for sale at some of the best prices I have ever encountered. Caribbean Gems offers modest pieces suitable for giving to friends and colleagues as a momento of your trip to St Maarten, but also features investment grade gems... More

The service was excellent, especially from Max, but the whole staff was very nice and helpful. They were very willing to work with you to find items within your price range. They basically created my earrings for me based on what I liked. It was a wonderful experience.

We have been travelling to St.Maarten for over 14 years, and every year we return to Caribbean Gems for what we believe are the best selection and values on the Island. It's a family store (actually there's two, CG1 & CG2 just a few stores down!) where we are always treated like family. Manu the owner stands fully behind his... More
