    Cheapest silver in Bali
    We drove from Payangan and visited two shops, Asmana Silver and Yani Silver. Prices were fixed but were much cheaper than Ubud. Quite a few places seemed closed up but I wasn't sure if it was because you just need to knock, as they keep everything locked up. Unfortunately they would only take cash. I would have liked to have started a bit earlier in the day and visited a few more different shops and workshops. My 15 year old bought a chain, ring and pendant and I bought a chain, pendant and two pairs of earrings. There was a tiny little open-air shop opposite with a man busy at an old sewing machine. I was kicking myself that I hadn't brought a few items I needed hemmed or repaired with me, as this would have been the place! We combined this with a trip to the art/painting village and the Mas the wood working village but didn't purchase anything at either. We didn't have enough rupiah but they were happy to take AUD.

    Asmana and Yani shops were the best by far!
    Went to four shops - Artika, Anom, Yani and Asmana. Artika was very large, had a great selection and outrageously overpriced. Anom was more reasonable by a long shot, but Yani and Asmana were my faves! Unairconditioned and the only language you will need is a calculator!!!!!!! Great prices, great selection at Yani and Asmana.

    Good to tour around
    This place is pretty good to walk around, to know local culture, souvenir shops etc. They have got many touristic silver shops that almost push visitors to buy the stuff. So, that can be an issue. Otherwise, it's a place to be.

I had high hopes for this experience however I was let I little underwhelmed. I did buy a bracelet and necklace however this place is expensive. If you want an experience of making a piece of jewellery visit Agung silver in Sidemen in a traditional village this is amazing my husband and I both made silver rings

Very touristy but worth a visit as it’s an impressive showcase of silver jewellery from around Bali, it’s fixed price and we didn’t buy anything.

Free Entry. Excellent tour of silver making. Highly recommended to visit.

Note that the workers do not really wear PPE when they perform their duties. Hope there is improvement in that.

We visited Made Mantra as the adjacent Japa Silver was closed. This was a mistake.

When it came time to pay we asked if card was accepted.. we were given a resounding "yes".

However once our card was debited (and the money taken from our account) we were told there was an issue with printing the receipt and that we would either have to pay again in cash or leave our (paid for) jewellery behind.

We showed the staff our banking app (wise) and the details of the completed transaction. They insisted that because they were unable to print the receipt that they had not been paid.

The staff in store made a video call to the owner and his wife (who was most unpleasant) who insisted that we leave our purchases behind until he could "check" the payment at some later date...maybe in a couple of days.

This went on for some time until I was able to cancel the transaction, get the money we had already paid back into our account and simply pay in cash.

I recommend shopping elsewhere unless you enjoy attempted double charging and then being told that you are untrustworthy by the person attempting to double charge you.

There are lots of great options for silver in Celuk... in our experience Made Mantra is definitely not one of them.

We went for lunch in the one-day Ubud tour. It’s a shopping place for relax and sightseeing. Besides,the lunch was satisfied.

Celuk Village is another traditional village located near Ubud in the Gianyar Regency with mountain views.

Famous for its silver & gold handicrafts, in particular jewellery, there are many silver & gold galleries lining on both sides of the road. This is where you will be able to see the silversmiths & goldsmiths in action. However, the workshops are usually beside & outside the shops.

Tourists will be mesmerised with the intricate designs on rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, hairpins & brooches. Prices vary according to the weight & the intricacy of the design. Other items such as medals, decorative ornaments & souvenirs are also currently making headway into the global market.

Most of the artists busy at work have been trained since young as it is an art passed down from one generation to the next. Thus, their skills & craftsmanship is of international level.

Our tour agent brought us to a shop which looked small from the outside but was actually very big when we went inside. The shop was elongated in size. As mentioned, its workshop is just beside the shop. Unfortunately when we arrived, the silversmiths were on a lunch break. Thus, we were unable to see them at work.

As expected, there were many unique & intricate designs on all the jewellery pieces. Although I was told that the items will be sold at wholesale prices, I believe them not to be true. Prices were quite steep. Hence, I didn’t buy a single item from the shop. I supposed you are better off buying your jewellery in the city where all the locals go to.
