This is my go to place for gold and local jewelry in the Dominican República. I grew up in Puerto and live in the capital now. The service, selection and prices can’t be beaten. Definantly not your tourist trap. Love the art gallery as well. Highly recommend them.

What a wonderful experience, the service is so pleasant and helpful. Excellent and extensive selection of gold jewelry at reasonable prices. The art gallery in the plaza is worth a stop to see topped off with a free cup of Dominican coffee was so pleasant. A funny thing happened, I called before going over to make sure they were open as it was a Sunday, the taxi told me they were open and offered me to take us to some gift shop, we insisted and sure enough they were open. I asked Willey what that might have been about and he explained the taxies get some huge commission at the gift shops. This is definitely where the locals go. Love my necklace and highly recommend them.

Marie, thanks for shopping with us and taking the time to write a review. Yes, sometimes taxies and guides will try to take you elsewhere so they get a huge commission, it happens in tourist towns. Our main business comes from local Dominicans. Hope you enjoy the necklace, it looks fabulous on you.

First of all we thank you for your patronage. We have reviewed the invoices, signed credit card vouchers, security video, your ID, and spoken with individuals present including your companion. The facts are you purchased a silver chain for yourself and put your own silver tennis shoe medallion on it and then made a second purchased of a gold necklace for your companion on April 8th, you both wore the jewelry out of the store. On April 9th you both returned, she shopped while you sat on the blue bench by the front entrance, she came over on her knee and spoke to you. You then accompanied her to the counter, she demonstrated the gold bracelet and ring she had selected, you then presented your credit card and signed the voucher which clearly stated the sales price in $US, as they all do. She was wearing the gold necklace from the previous day, and then you departed together wearing all four pieces of jewelry. Since your purchases, we have obtained written proof that your companion has or had possession of the gold necklace, bracelet, and ring that you purchased for her on the 8th and 9th. Additionally, your companion, who claims she has known you for 17 years, verified she received the three items of gold jewelry you purchased for her and claimed you were upset with her for some other reason. Obviously and regrettably the misunderstanding lies between you and your companion, that specific information we are not privy to. We have communicated with you and offered to assist; however, you declined to speak with us. If you wish to return any or all the items, as is our policy, we would refund you completely. The normal recourse is to file a claim with your credit card company, if you should wish to do that please do, as we are more than happy to comply and provide them with ample evidence of the purchases, then any fraud may be revealed. Best regards

What a relief to find a relaxed atmosphere while shopping in a tourist town, well the jewelry cateres to a local clientel. The plaza is gorgeous with exceptional contemporary Dominican artists. But back to the jewelry, they have a huge selection of mostly gold jewelry, some silver and local larimar. Service is spot on and not at all pushy, and great prices. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your kind review. Glad you enjoyed the art exhibition as part of the experience. Yes most of our business is with locals and a fair amount of visitors who do their homework before wondering into some of the tourist traps. We hope that when you are in the area that you will drop in again and say hello.

Some locals said we needed to go over to Puerto Plata and visit them if we wanted gold jewelry, they advised us not to take a guide or taxi, I think something about them wanting a commission, so we took a guagua [bus} and walked in. Wow a beautiful shop and art gallery to enjoy. Fantastic selection of gold jewelry and reasonable selection of larimar and amber, not a tourist shop. Service was great and not pushy, prices were even better, gold sold by karat and gram.

It was on the recommendation of people who had already visited the place, the truth is that I do not regret having visited Jewelry Las Americas, I saw many tourists from several countries who looked very happy with the place and the treatment provided is unsurpassed, one does not want go.
