Garnet jewelry at Marigot market
      #1733949 - 05/29/17 08:14 AM (205.197.242.168)

I hear that a lady sells hand made garnet jewelry in the Marigot market. Anyone seen it or have any of the pieces?

My wife bought some earrings from her several years ago. They are quite nice. She said the garnet was mined locally--can't remember if that was on St. Maarten or a surrounding island. We have not seen her at the market the past several years. We go in July so not sure if she is still there in high season but not low season.

Huhm, ok, thanks. We go in June. My birthstone is garnet, which I do not generally like, but I thought I might look for some of this jewelry.

My wife always stops by when we visit, mostly October, and has a nice collection of their pieces. Last 2 times, it was a guy selling the goods (I think he's the owner), other times it's been different sales ladies.

Always located in the same place when we visit--as you're heading towards the mall from the market, there's a breezeway through which Rosemary's in on the right. The garnet stand is on the left right before the breezeway.

I bought a lovely pair of earrings for my sister in October- her birthstone too. There was a man and a lady selling them there. The garnet is mined in St Martin.

Cruzer's directions are spot on - not big easyish to miss, they generally set up with a wall behind them.

Carol, someone was there, but I'm pretty sure they aren't there all days.

BTW, they do sell green garnets, not from St. Martin, but from Russia.

Bought a beautiful necklace from them a few years ago - I do not know how to post pictures on this site, otherwise I would.

OK, thanks. Green garnets? Didn't know they existed.. As I said, in general I do not like garnets, but if they are mined on SXM, that makes them special.
