    Jewellery stores around Central Station

    Shops under Central Station

    Beware of the jewellery stores situated under Central Station along the Pelikaanstraat. Not all shops are kosher. Prices may look interesting but if you are not an expert you might pay what you think a reasonable price for 18kt gold and go home with less.

    Unique Suggestions: Take someone with you who knows something about diamonds and gold or make sure you don't pay too much.

    Fun Alternatives: Just around the corner, on 'De Keyserlei', there are reliable jewellery shops.

    In the area around the central station, especially at the diamond neighbourhood, are a lot of shops with golden watches, gold chains and other jewelled things. Think twice before you buy something there. I do not mean that all shops over there are corrupting, but think about that not all things that are shining its gold!

    NOTICE: The picture of the shop you see here is not one of them (I hope so); it is just a coincidence.

    Be ware of the gold and jewelry shops situated under
    central station and Pelikaanstraat, the prices may look
    interesting but if you are not an expert you might pay
    what you think a reasonable price for 18kt gold and go
    home with 16kt or 14kt or less.
