We stopped in with recommendation from cruise ship .. which isn't always a good thing as I think they get a kickback .. but it couldn't have been a better experience. They had a/c and water and a couch to sit.. and they were the first store that didn't hawk us and pressure us. They have authentic beautiful unique sterling... More

The jewelry and gifts at Alberto's are unique and reasonably priced. The owner sized a ring for us while we waited. He told us about the gem stones he used in his jewelry and introduced us to the wonders of mescal. The hand carved chess sets were gorgeous. I recommend this shop to anyone visiting zihuatanejo.

It is a darn shame mr. Alberto has sadly passed away I hear. I was in his shop twice and I got a great welcome every time I was there.

We went into Zihuatanejo from Troncones with the intention of buying some silver and, if you've ever done this, you know there are lots of choices. The tourist market has dozens of silver stalls and the Centro has many stores bragging about their Taxco silver. Choosing the right people can be a challenge when you're blinded by silver. We were...

The jewelry I saw was extremely unique and the design value and quality was very high. Wish I could have afforded it, very expensive. I do appreciate the workmanship and creativity that is evident in the pieces. But still, for silver, it is quite expensive. So much so that I had to walk away.

These folks are, first and foremost, honest and straight-shooters, which is important for tourists... strangers in a strange land. Our salesman, who'd been there 21 years, explained that these cases were Alberto's original designs (beautiful, creative and more expensive... and he said so) and all of these other cases & shelves contain silver from other States (he explained each of...

As far as I am concerned, Alberto's has the most outstanding creations in fine silver. The owners are a local family diligent in creating the most charming silver jewelry available in their open studio. I think they have the best silver creations and service in Zihuatanejo.

Stopped here in Cozumel, but also have locations in Zihuatanejo and Puerto Vallarta (original). They have lovely, original hand designed jewelry. Had to splurge on a bracelet! I have never seen anything like it and can't wait to wear it! They were able to adjust the size while we shopped in town, and picked it up an hour later in... More
