“Expensive but unique!”

Prapen Jewelry & Artifacts
Ranked #1 of 16 Shopping in Sukawati
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

This one of its kind jewellery boutique located in a magnificent villa with fish ponds and fountains specialises in intricately crafted silver jewellery.
A small workshop gives a glimpse into the tedious work involved in making each unique piece.
Don’t expect bargains.
Some of the Silver jewellery items cost more than gold jewellery back home.

Thank Baarish

This is one of the best if not THE best silver & gold shop of Celuk and even Ubud. The jewelry on display and for sale, is unique. The shop is completely in tune with the quality stuff that is being produced and sold over there. Serious eye for detail. It is easy to see why and how this place distinguishes itself from many other, mass production-oriented silver ”factories” along the main road. If you are interested in mesmerizing pieces of jewelry, if you value quality over quantity (not to say there is not an abundance of choice, on the contrary) do drop by for a visit. Absolutely recommendable.

We went because our guide stopped there and had a look around.
The jewellery is beautiful but when converted aint cheap or stamped .
We bought some earrings as only £40 but felt some pressure to buy more,when they realized we wernt goung to buy more they soon jumped on the next tourists.

Thank you for your review.
We put sterling silver hallmark and our logo stamp on every product we made whenever space allows except on few tiny, filigree or hollow pieces.
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your visit. During busy times, our sales assistants cannot follow (we don't stalk) every customer who is already in our showroom browsing, because they must give a workshop tour to the incoming visitors. This does not mean that the next customer is more potential. Greeting, a general explanation of our compound and workshop tour are the important part of our customer's experience. After that, customers are free to explore the rest of our compound including watching the Kois if they have extra time.
Therefore, we are bit confused if you felt pressure to buy when our sales assistant left you on your own freedom to explore our showroom. We hope that this explanation could answer your thought and if you want to share more thoughts, please do not hesitate to email us at contactus@prapen.com

I Visited This Afternoon
I love their design of jewelry
Many of silver and gold are made by handmade from local balinesee people

Visitor can fell the detail of their design and content. Both of them explain tradition balineese style and modern taste. You can choose them with your style, Don't worry to be there, there are many shopkeeper with friendy services and touch smile.

I felt relax and comfort with Koi Fish Pool inside the boutique. So elegantz and classy

The location is in Celuk, The Center of Jewelry Handmade in Bali, near from Sukawati Art Market and Gianyar City

Thank you for your positive review. However, we feel it a bit overstated and need to make a couple of corrections as we want to give true and objective information to the Tripadvisor community.
Not all of our products are locally handmade. We are a jewelry retailer destination that also offers imported machine-made products such as Italian made chains, clasps and other jewelry findings used in our products. We also work with supervised vendors in Thailand and Central Java for some designs that are not feasible to be made locally.
We do not have many shopkeepers, only 10 sales assistants on shifts.
