    Perfect experience
    I was sceptical at first, because you always have to be cautious when buying games in sri lanka. But here it was different. The owner is very nice, helpful and does everything, so you can leave satisfied. I bought a few sapphires in March and finally checked them in Germany. In conclusion: Perfect service, good prices and perfect prices.

    Top quality custom made jewellery!!
    Amendra is very knowledgeable and takes all the time explaining and showing the great collection of gems! On top of that he will have your custom made jewellery ready within days. He even provided pizza while we designed our jewellery. Great experience, thank you!!

    This place is a gem
    Amendra is an excellent silversmith. If you don’t find what you are looking for in his shop he will most likely be able to create what you had in mind. Amendra and his wife are really lovely people. I am very happy with the rings I had made for me. I urge you to make a visit, it’s worth it; this place is a gem.

    Forbes, the best jewellery store in Sri Lanka!
    Best jewellery store in Sri Lanka! We had a very warm welcome when entering the store. They really took the time to put our wishes into the perfect design. We were kept up to date during the process with photos and videos and slight changes could be made right away to make the ring really suit my wishes. It’s unfortunate Sri Lanka is so far away, otherwise I would visit Forbes every week!

    Design your own jewellery!
    I asked Forbes to make 7 pieces of jewellery for my friends and they all turned out beautifully. By simply showing a few photo's for inspiration we started drawing possible designs and looking at beautiful stones for the rings. Forbes was flexible and willing to share ideas to ensure all rings would turn out how I wanted them to. I would recommend to anyone! Within a week all the rings were finished and my friends are all very happy! Thank you!

    beautiful little local jewellery shop with endless possibilities
    Amendra and his family are very friendly. His father can make you any jewellery piece that you like if you can not find a piece of jewellery in his shop. The prices are reasonable and he delivers on time. I really would recommend Forbes jewellery shop!

    Friendly family business
    This wonderful family business had really friendly people and rings for a really good price. We bought 3 rings and we are very happy with them. This is because we could choose out of a big amount of rings with different types of jems.

    Good vibes and magic stones)
    I live in Sri Lanka and was looking for a store for my first purchase of a good quality stone at an affordable price. My intuition led me to this store and it was the right choice! It is felt that the owner values his customers and cares about the reputation of the store. There are stones for every taste and budget. We had a heartfelt talk about stones, business, and they showed me the most beautiful stones of the island. Previously, I had little interest in this, but here I felt all the magic of the stones). As a result, I bought a good natural yellow sapphire at a good price and ordered a ring with it. It turned out cheaper than in my country, and even with stone from Ceylon!

    Perfect service, huge variety of gems to pick from
    Very frienly personnel, got a huge collection of gems for any tastes, varying from small ones like tenths of carats to pretty big ones of dozens of carats. They got all kinds of gems, so you will be able to find one that fits you, they will eagerly show all of hundrets of gems if you need. They also got a license from NGJA, so you should not be worried about artifical stones. Though NGJA analysis showed that spinel appered to be a garnet (howerer that's not a big deal for me), other gems turned out to be what they were told to be and I think they would admit a mistake and give you a replacement if it mattered. Can't tell anything about prices, because of lack of knowledge in this sphere, but I suppose they are cheaper than in other places and much cheaper than in other countries

    Forbes Gems & Jewelers makes you the most beautiful handcrafted Jewelry!
    I know Amendra already since a few years and he is truly the best. Not only from his kindness and really good customer service but also the custom made jewelry. Any wish we have we can transform into perfection and beauty of silver, gold and beautiful stones. He became a friend in Sri Lanka and every year we come back to him. He made me beautiful earrings handcrafted with a lot of knowledge and love.

The only place I trust with my whole hearted hard earn money to get jewellery. Top quality and absolutely honest with what you get. The pricing is so fair and I've always been happy with the quality product and services. I cannot recommend a better place to get your jewellery and gems.

The owner is very friendly. He took the time to present these different products to me and explain their particularities. After I bought something, he gave me some extra little gifts.
