Pearls (fresh and sea water) and semi-precious stones of all kinds are on sale here from more than fifty vendors, all under one roof. You can buy individual strands to take home and get creative, have your design made up while you wait, or choose from the hundreds of pre-made beauties on display.
Shopping here can feel quite hectic as touts try to steer you to their stalls but stay cool, take your time and browse around for the best prices. This is tourist central so bargain your socks off once something catches your eye. If you’re not convinced the pearls are genuine, do the scratch test: Scratch at the pearl using scissors, if you can see a scratch mark after brushing the dust away, it’s fake.
