    Pearl Market: Only pearls

    by anilpradhanshillong Updated Nov 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pearl Market, by the side of the Indo-Tibetan Border Force (ITBF) camp, is a unique place to shop for pearl and other semi-precious stones. Just stick to stones and trinkets; no ‘traditional' Buddhist artefacts.

    What to buy: Pearls, semi-precious stones, paschmina products.

    Ladakh Art Palace: Jewellery and more

    some of my

    It's a nice shop with a good reputation... unlike most shops in Leh, the goods sold here are either authentic, or clearly marked as "fakes" (for example fake fossile coral, mixed pashminas, and so on). Owners and staff are Ladakhi, which are like a breath of fresh air from the majority of shops run by Kashmiri people. No one here pushes you to buy anything - and the whole experience is relaxing.

    What to buy: Coral jewellery and coral jewellery boxes - they were my favourites. Many silver jewels, too and handbags, peace flags, masks... everything. There's also a large selection of pashmina shawls, if you are so inclined

    What to pay: Not a lot. About 300 rupess (6 euros) for the jewellery box, and 450 rupees (9 euros) for the necklace (obviously a fake)
