If you are in search of gemstone jewellery in Galle, this is the place to go. Irshad was responsive, helpful and knowledge. Got two beautiful pieces ( ring and pendant) for my wife. I would highly recommend them.

I had a necklace made up with some pearls from Hong Kong. The jewellers were helpful and creative and I am very happy with the result. The price was very reasonable and they worked quickly.
