Our visit to Lihiniya Gems was excellent.

The team of jewellers - generations in a family - was attentive, friendly, informative about the sources of sapphires and why different colours are produced.

They were incredibly patient in bringing out unusual coloured sapphires and we ultimately chose a cognac coloured sapphire that is very beautiful. They have also followed up about the magnificent Padparadscha sapphire we looked at carefully.

We would highly recommend the store and family. They’re professional, trustworthy, and with excellent quality stock. We are delighted we stopped and grateful that the team made time for us on Sinhalese new year this year.

I return back to Lihiniya Gems! Thanks for the quality of gems and really fast delivery. I've bought two items earlier in 2020 and made it again. I would recommend the service to all my friends and family. The personal, the management are very intelligent and are good professionals. I asked for a custome made earning, so i received the photo-updates of the process. If i have an intention to buy so more items - will come back!

Padparadscha sapphire miracle all thanks to the superb customer service that was delivered beyond our expectations. Mr. Irshad was a very dedicated and pleasurable representative through out our overseas transaction. We trusted his business to restore our platinum engagement setting, which has enormous sentimental value to us. It was a magical outcome after our design requests were precisely crafted by his talented goldsmith.

I found this family run jewellery store online before coming to Galle in the hope of having a necklace custom made for me. They were brilliant. I sent a photo of what I was after and they made an exact replica for me. The family is lovely. The quality of craftsmanship is excellent. I highly recommend them.

We read about Lihiniya Gems on Trip Advisor and since we wanted to bring some gems /jewellery home as souvenirs of our amazing Sri Lanka trip, we decided to give them a try. The good reviews are absolutely justified. We received a warm welcome in the shop and very detailed and competent information about the stones and the goldsmith's works. It was a wonderful experience and we warmly recommend to visit them. We will come back.

I once again visited Lihiniya Gems on my trip to Sri Lanka and the experience keeps on getting better. I had a specific design in mind and the team were so helpful in offering their advice and experience in both Gems and the craft and art of jewelry making that they managed to enhance my design to make it extra special. I always find them very honest in the advice they give and there is no 'sell', just genuine love for their craft and making sure you get the best stone or piece you desire.

Had a stunning ‘rainbow’ ring created by the impressive team at Lihiniya Gems. I sent all the details from Australia ie ring size, stones I liked, size of stones etc and asked for a quote and thus began a very satisfying collaboration.
I had been in person to this jeweller back in April 2018 and bought a beautiful sapphire pendant for my wonderful mother-in-law so I was feeling confident that they would be able to craft a nice piece.
They sent photos of the stones and arrangement they were thinking and got my approval, as well as videos of the construction process which really helped me visualise the ring and feel involved in the process.
Payment was via their website and I got the ring insured for the journey which was shipped via tracked parcel post which meant I could see when it left Sri Lanka and when it arrived in Australia- very reassuring!
I love my ring and would highly recommend this jeweller and this process to anyone.

The team at Lihiniya were exceptional. Highly professional, excellent advice and very honest about each stone’s pros and cons. Fantastic range, friendly/knowledgeable family business and incredibly patient! Not the cheapest, but the best quality and excellent value. Chose my stones and made me two stunning rings in just a few days. Highly recommend!

I would recommend Lihiniya Gems to anyone.
I have spent many years in Sri Lanka and visited Galle many times. I've personally never been too interested to enter the many gem/jewellery stores, not until it was time to buy that very important engagement ring.
When the time came I went to Galle and walked straight into Lihiniya, I did not visit another store. Why? Due to the research I had done on here, the reviews I had read. The team at Lihiniya were clearly caring, considerate, thoughtful, emotionally invested and consistent in providing an excellent service.
I felt compelled to add to this list of reviews with my, same, experience. It was all completely perfect.
I knew what I was looking for in a ring - we love the ocean, the gem needed to resemble this, and I was interested in getting a more organic looking gold band. Shazin and his father, with the help of the rest of the team, guided me through a range of different gems. Informative but patient and not at all pushy.
I was naturally a little apprehensive on leaving them to it, not knowing how the finished ring would look. But it was absolutely perfect. They had listened to my desires and made it happen. Thank you guys! The ring played a big part in the magic of it all.
If you're reading this, do not hesitate to visit Lihiniya.
