We had a very nice shopping experience while sipping delicious local coffee. We found the Jewelry selection to be quite nice, precious and semiprecious gemstones set in gold or silver. We came away with a couple of pieces of nice jewelry reasonably priced, along with a couple pounds of the delicious coffee. The shop was well appointed and the staff friendly and professional.

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
