I Bought a Conch shell coin pendant a year ago. We went back to Key West this week and I dropped it off to be cleaned. Carl did a wonderful job. It looks brand new. I will be back.

When I saw the final piece today – I was again amazed by the quality, the beauty!, and the artwork in the design of my newest ring!! Whether it’s a custom-made pair of earrings, or the enhancement to a ring that has the most special meaning to me…or any of the handmade rings in our family that we will always treasure!…Carl is simply amazing! Thank you for being so easy to work with, so accommodating, and just the best! The Emeralds International family has the very best longstanding reputation for knowledge and quality in gems – especially Emeralds and some very unique and rare gems like conch pearls! Whether you’re visiting Key West on a cruise ship or coming back to visit whenever you can, like us…one visit to Emeralds International and you will be amazed and never want to use another jeweler.

I was pleased to work with everyone at Emerald’s to design and hand craft my grandaughters first Gem necklace! And it turned out more beautiful than I imagined. I wish I could post her picture wearing it. You guys are great! ????????

I was looking to purchase an emerald ring. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable regarding the product and helped me to make a decision. They were also very accommodating regarding the sizing of the ring given our short stay in Key West. We were very appreciative of their assistance. A big thank you to them.

We saw a beautiful pendant at our holiday in Key West. Having second thoughts in the holidays, I decided to ordered it back in Germany for my wife for christmas. It was out of stock, but Ermeralds International made a special order and helped through the process to save money to an ongoing sale. The staff was very friendly and very, very fast, It only took two weeks (Emeralds International calculated 4 weeks) to fulfill (including shipping to Germany). My wife loved it. We’ll return, thank you very much!

Emeralds International has been such a pleasure to work with. I purchased a ring 15 years ago and just recently returned it to them for repair. Carl did such an excellent job, he fully restored it and made my ring look brand new. He and the staff were very kind and helpful and communicated to me every step of the way. They are true professionals and very trustworthy. Thank you so much! I would never hesitate to make a purchase from EI in the future. My ring is gorgeous!

I got a beautiful, exceptional emerald and octopus necklace! It sat a little low and snagged a blouse and when Diana called just to follow up and see if I was happy with my purchase she had me send it back and they shortened it at no charge so it now sits perfectly! I highly recommend dealing with them!

This place is extraordinary! My husband (then fiancée) had secretly done a little research and took me in to have our wedding rings designed by Carl. The experience was fantastic. Carl is a genius! We both immediately felt comfortable...the store isn't too big, the staff (love love love Stephanie) is fun, extremely knowledgeable, and sold the items on their obvious merits (aka no pressure) Carl himself is professional, has a warm manner and exemplary taste, patient, his explanations of the various settings and materials were easy to understand, and he's funny as hell. When I asked for advice concerning diamond grade etc... he did not steer me towards the most expensive, he steered me towards the correct grade for the piece in question. You can trust him. He stuck by all estimates and both rings were completed when he said they would be. Dig me some Carl! They are serious when it comes to making sure their stones are purchased in mines with excellent reputations. The pricing is also VERY reasonable. There's a reason these guys have been in business forever... It is 100% worth making a trip out to Key West if you're looking for a special piece of jewelry or want to have something designed. It doesn't matter if you want to spend $1,000 or $1,000,000. You won't be disappointed. Emeralds is a very special place.
