With some trepidation we bought several items in their Galle Fort shop. Were we paying the right money? Were the gems as we were sold? Were the gems of good quality? On return to the UK one of the small stones dropped out of a diamond ring. "Well that's that", we thought. We will just have to put that one down to experience. However my wife felt it was worth a try to email the shop. An instant response and we were asked to send the ring back. It has just been returned today with the diamond replaced, no cost! Now that is good service, thank you.
Make sure you take plenty OF cash. Or tell them a budget. Ask for some form of discount on any large purchase. We bought a lovley sapphire ring. It comes with its own certificate. We have now also had it certifed and valued in the UK. And we are very happy with the result.
