Princess jade
Jan 2020
My husband has been a long time customer at casa del jade. I was visiting Guatamala for the first time and my husband brought me to this very special store to buy me a gift.

First, the showroom is exquisite. The salespeople are very nice and helpful. Not pushy at all. I was wearing the jade cross that I had been gifted and the salesman volunteered to polish the silver embellishments.

After searching the store for just the perfect item, I found and exquisite princess jade and pearl bracelet. The salesman told me the translucent gray jade was discovered the same year that princess Diana died and they named the jade after her. I have very thin wrists and the bracelet fit beautifully and was linked thus very comfortable.

The service at casa del jade was only exceeded by the beautiful jewelry. Don’t miss this amazing shop in Antigua.

Wonderful Experience!
Mar 2020
This museum/workshop offers valuable insight into the history of jade and its uses in ancient Mayan culture. The saff are welcoming and enthusiastic. Beautiful jewelry is on display for sale at varying and affordable prices. Lovely gallery in a beautiful setting. Our visit there was a highpoint of our time in Antigua. A "gem" of ambiance not to be missed.

Wonderful selection and lovely little museum
Feb 2020
We wandered into this store, which has a small storefront, just intending to look around. We were greeted by Berny, who could not have been more helpful without being at all pushy. Occupying a large portion of the ground floor of a restored large casa, spanning several interconnecting rooms that go deeper into the former house, the jewelry store offers a dazzling array of jewelry, specializing in all colors of Guatemalan jade but also having other semi-precious and precious stones available, often in distinctively designed pieces. At the back of the store is a museum with a well-mounted display of Olmec and Maya artifacts with clear explanations of their provenance.

Fort the serious shopper (not us), there are pieces in every price range, all of them attractive. Included in the inventory are pieces made by co-ops supporting the local people.

In the courtyard were a couple of Maya women selling their textiles. Berny helped with translations, and with his assistance, we were able to get a better understanding of the techniques used. One of the lovely women demonstrated how she used her hip-strap loom for us.

We are so glad we stopped in Casa del Jade and grateful for Berny's assistance.

Workshop & Museum tour
Feb 2020 • Couples
Wow! This was such an amazing experience! We met the awesome Diego who gave us a free tour of the musem and shop and then introduced us to the workshop. Buying a souvenir from a shop is easy but making your own out of Jade is the real deal. Diego is so passionate and knowledgeable that he makes you feel like you’ve been doing this forever!
