We were introduced to Max at Caribbean Gems a few years ago while visiting Sint Maarten with friends. Max's quality of service proved to be unmatched. I recently had a problem with a bracelet that I purchased and Max went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. Max with his experience and knowledge, makes "shopping" fun, relaxed and an... More

I love my yearly visits sometimes more to see everyone at Caribbean Gems but my personal jewelry expert Pallavi is the best!!! This time my friend Chris came and fell in love with a new design for pearls and black crystals Pallavi was wearing and went from her neck to Chris's in a matter of minutes. I fell in love... More

They are thrilled with their purchase and Max was very helpful. We have been doing business with Max at Caribbean gems for 15 years and he is the best. We love... More

We've been going back to Caribbean Gems and Rajesh for over 15 years! He has always been gracious, a marvelous host and an honest gentleman to work with. We highly recommend him and his store. I had him create a custom piece that my wife adored. We have also upgraded a few tennis bracelets by trading in original bracelets for... More

I have never bought jewelry for myself. We went with friends who have gone there for fourteen years. I can certainly see why. Max immediately made us feel at home. He understood our budget constraints and worked with us to fix my wedding ring at no charge. We came out of there with my engagement ring, that I have always... More

On Nov. 4/2016 The Serenade of the Seas arrived in St. Maarten. We left the ship and found ourselves in Caribbean Gems a short time later. We managed to pick up a couple of sparkly things and enjoyed a beverage or two. After spending the full day with Pallavi & Manu we had to get back to the ship. With... More

Dealing with Max and Ajay is a true eye opener. They explain how diamonds are graded and why the grade of the diamond reflects itself in the price. I have dealt with them for the last 10+ years and every purcvhase has been appraised for much more than I paid. There is no pressure and the selection is fantastic
