We visited this shop for the first time last December 2016. We had purchased jewellery in St Maarten before and thought we would do some research as to the best places to go. This shop was number one with trip advisor when we did our research. The staff were very helpful, although I did end up spending more than I... More

I recently stayed in St. Maarten and stopped into Caribbean Gems. I found a beautiful piece and Amit helped me and gave me a very good price. What I especially liked was the fact that there was no pressure to buy. I purchased the necklace and was very happy with it. Several days later I went back and looked at... More

Last year we bought a beautiful new engagement ring and had my wedding band adjusted. The service was very professional and I felt totally at ease with my purchase.Upon returning to Canada I had the ring appraised at twice the... More

Visited Caribbean Gems several times over the years. This was our best experience due to Amit. He was knowledge, couterious and friendly. No high pressure selling. Got our wedding rings at a surprisingly low price. Highly recommended. Be sure to request Amit. We will be back again.

Back again for our annual Visit to SXM. Met our friend Max at Caribbean Gems who provided the best service and pricing for bling here in St. Maarten. A great store with people you can trust for the best value and quality of products anywhere on the Island.

Max welcomed us immediately upon walking into his store and was a warm, gracious host to us. He was very patient and honest and a good salesman at that! We went into the store to buy earrings and came out with a diamond ring as well. He showed and gave us many different options, while we enjoyed a glass of... More
