Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and her friend spent quite a while here and she ended up buying two handmade shell necklaces. She was impressed by the service and the variety of items on display, which she had not seen elsewhere.

We reckon this shop has some of the best selection of jade and shell jewelry we've seen around. A wide range of styles and prices. Many interesting combinations and designs. Explanations provided as well. The chap was very pleasant and chatty about the work, some of which was his own. We'l back and recommend visitors drop in on their way past.

Found the gentleman behind the counter to be both informative and pleasant. A great selection if you are after that personal gift for loved ones, or yourself. Though I believe it to be bad luck to buy jade for yourself. It needs to be gifted. So find someone to buy and give to you. My wife the negotiator got a good deal with a couple of extra items thrown in for the agreed price. Happy Wife, happy life.

I stopped in while hubby got gas at the station across the street. I just wanted a basic jade beaded stretchy bracelet, but they didn't have anything remotely like this. It was all jade art carvings on leather or other kind of clunky stuff. I'm sure the quality is all very good, but the range of items seemed a bit limited especially for the larger size of the place. I guess I was in the wrong market, so maybe that's my mistake. The staff were just moderately friendly/helpful.

Spoiled for choice as the selection is extensive. The member of staff on duty was very informative and helpful.

There is a good range of items most of which appear to be locally produced and good value for money.

Fantastic shop. Think ahead for birthdays and Christmas as this is where you can grab something different for that special (or difficult) person you need to buy for. Excellent prices, plus great quality.
