ROCKY'S GOAN JEWELLER: Jewelery
This merchant is the most honest and has the best designs in Goa. He is charming and very ethical. His jewelery is beautiful, only the best stones are used and his personal designs are very unusual. I paid £900.00 for a diamond and emerald ring which was valued in the UK for £4025.00. It is stunning. His customers come back to him year after year. I will definitely be buying from him again.
Bombay Jewels & Gems: Gold, gold, gold!
There are tons of good Jewelers all over Goa, but based on a reccommendation from a Goan friend I use this shop. They make their own pieces, and its all 22 carat gold. If you take in your own design, or want an old piece copied they can do it. Ask for Deepak Prasan.
Malini Ramani: Hippie Chic
Malini Ramani is one of the hottest designers to come out of india in the past decade. She resides in goa and that echoes in all her clothes. Slightly pricey but they make lovely thoughful gifts for significant others back home. Plus it shows you were thinking of them in the middle of paradise.
