Joyeria Caribe Emerald Museum And Factory - Review
In addition to the stores around town, the Caribe Jewelry firm has also set up a fascinating little museum. Covering the history of emeralds and emerald mining in Colombia, the engagingly chambers of this unexpected exhibit also have detailed and explanatory displays of the jewels themselves. There’s even a small exploration of the legendary city of El Dorado. Shopping for the jewels is a delight. As the company has its own factory, they will cut stones to your personal specifications if you don’t see something you like. And if the appraised value of the stone is less than what they charged you for it, just send them a copy of the appraisal, and they’ll refund you for the difference!

Joyeria Caribe Emerald Museum And Factory, Cartagena Reviews
Incredible. Simple, full of history and great facts. I wouldnt imagine Emeralds were so hard to find and prepare. Well done. Thank you for such informative and brief museum experience.
The museum is interesting and I learned a lot about emeralds. It's worth a half hour or more. I would have gladly spent more time on each exhibit but our guide kept moving us fairly fast. She was pleasant, and did not apply any sales pressure when she showed us the goods for sale. We will consider returning to take the jewelry making course for $90 each; this uses raw uncut emeralds.
What a cool idea to extract money from (female) tourists ... nicely done and well managed place ... kids loved the museum and the workshop ... we were watching jewelers in action and learned about emeralds ... empanada place next to the museum on the corner is very convenient when shopping goes longer than anticipated
Very nice museum and our guide Luis did an excellent job explaining the mining process and exhibits. The museum has a tunnel that you can go through to experience the cramped nature that the miners go through to deliver the emeralds. The exhibits go through Colombia's history of emeralds and the Spanish invaders. Other exhibits have emeralds from around the world. The tour ends in the jewelry shop. I'm not a jewelry person so won't comment on that.
Wonderful shopping experience, truly a great place to buy Emeralds.
