Would not shop elsewhere. For honesty, service, no pressure sales this is the only place to shop. Can't endorse it more highly.

Worst experience ever & I personally do not recommend Shivas.

I bought two fairly large diamond rings from Jay at Shiva's and at Trident over the years, plus countless smaller items. I had a travel agency and took countless women there to shop. I trusted Jay, but I should not have! I lost a one and a half carat diamond earring of very good quality, basket setting. I took the lone earring into Jay and asked him to match the stone and setting. I got back on my cruise ship assured that he would make a second earring, mail them to me and bill me. That did not happen. Weeks turned into months and I could not even get Jay to return my calls -- or letter! Finally his mother told me he had been busy (for months?!) and she would look into it. Bottom line -- they lost my original earring and stone and returned to me a lone inferior quality, smaller diamond with black carbon spots visible to the naked eye, in a totally different setting. I obviously complained and Jay would not make it right. I do not shop with him and have encouraged my cruise passengers not to do business with him. His negligence was tantamount to theft! -- Debbra

Fantastic jeweler, wonderful people. So if you want to buy a diamond but don't know much about it, Jay and his people will take the time to teach you what to look for, they will show you their documents and certificats backing up what they say, they will encourage you to look anyplace you want on the island, then they will give you the best deal possible in a no pressure environment. They will show the Rap report and explain how to read it so you can be an educated consumer. We recently bought our second diamond at Shivas after taking days to be educated. Really wonderful folks that you can trust. Buying decision was lauded by half the customers in the store barely letting my wife out after the purchase of her 9 carat ring. They always make you feel like the only customer in the store no matter how busy they are and we find their inventory to be superior to their competition. Enjoy.

I have been buying from the Shivas and Trident for more than 20 years. I wouldn't go anywhere else for diamonds, gold and watches. Their custom designs can't be matched anywhere else. Tell them Jeri sent you!

Shiva's in Aruba is amazing! We shop with Mike and have made a purchase each time for the last 6 years. Great value and wonderful service!

I love Jay. I have been dealing with him since 1996 and always look forward to seeing him. I have bought a great deal of diamond jewelry from him and have always gotten a great deal from him. I consider him a friend.

I bought a beautiful multi diamond ring in Nov. after a few weeks of wear I realized a stone was missing. I called Kevin and he told me where to send it for repair in the US. It was repaired and returned…only to have the stone fall out again…this time Kevin took it back to Aruba and is remaking the entire ring! They have been great to work with and I will do business with them again:)

I have been dealing with Shiva's for almost twenty years. I just recently returned with a new Emerald and diamond ring as well as new diamond studs for myself and a gorgeous Jean LaSalle watch for my fiancee. I have NEVER been disapointed in my jewelry and have thouroughly enjoyed the fine service that Jay and his staff has provided. I cannot say enough good things about this store. Go, and tell them Amber sent you!!!

I bought a wedding ring and the ring is not worth anything near what they told me. Thousands less. Thinking of legal actions.

I have purchased several very nice men's rings at Shiva's (Hello Anthony!) and was pleased with the products, the pricing and the very attentive service I received. Each year I go back simply because it's like going home.

My husband bought me a diamond ring in 2004 and Shivas was so amazing to deal with. The service was excellent along with the product we purchased. We have been telling everyone. We will be back. J. Knight

Bought a Frank Muller watch at Shiva's during a cruise trip. Price is good. Sammy is a fantastic sales person: courteous, polite and knowledgable with the products. He even walked us to the water taxi to make sure we won't miss the last transit. Ouststanding service!!

Bought a Harry Winston watch and received an excellent price for it. Extremely good place to buy jewelry and watches on St. Maarten.

I have purchased a gold chain and bracelet for my husband and tanzanite neclace for myself. Very happy with the quality and service from Jay.

Rated by Sylvia Korn on 07/13/08
Andrew from Shiva Gems is wonderful. I bought a beautiful tanzanite bracelet and earrings last New Year's Day (1/1/08). This was our second visit to the store and we were just as pleased as we were on our first visit about 5 years ago. We will definitely return.

I took advantage of their offer to get diamond earrings appraised before my Visa was charged. I was very happy with the appraisal of the earrings and will buy diamonds form Shiva's again.
