Interesting little museum of gems. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke English. After the tour you go through the sales speech but there was not as much sales pressure as there was at Amsterdam Sauer.

Understand the coloured gems of Brazil at H Stern’s HQ - informative and enjoyable but with so much expensive jewelry, I felt my credit card would melt in its wallet!
