“Lovely jewelry”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Uxmal deTaxco is a silver jewelry shop owned and run by Miguel Peon. Miguel comes from a family of silversmiths in Taxco and his work makes a unique and welcome contribution to the retail world of Merida. Low key and relaxed, Miguel seems to be more of a host than a salesman. A fluent English-Spanish bilingual, Miguel can discuss the finer points of silversmithing in either language. The jewelry is beautiful and the shop is definitely worth a visit.

“A Real Gem”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Located near the start of Paseo Montejo on the south, this shop has high quality jewelry and other items made of silver. The sales approach is unobtrusive but informative. The owner Miguel Peon D., an accomplished silversmith, makes much of what he stocks. He has also taught his art to his assistant, Irma, a delightful young woman. If you can take the time, Miguel will offer you his insights into a variety of topics related to Mexican life. If you are fortunate, you may even be able to time your visit when his daughter is playing the piano (we didn't). It is wonderful spot to relax and gauze at some skilled silver work. Not only will you end with a nice piece of work but some wonderful thoughts as well. Thanks, Miguel for a great afternoon.
