Wow! This was such an amazing experience! We met the awesome Diego who gave us a free tour of the musem and shop and then introduced us to the workshop. Buying a souvenir from a shop is easy but making your own out of Jade is the real deal. Diego is so passionate and knowledgeable that he makes you feel like you’ve been doing this forever!

We accidentally got in line with a cruise tour group and learned a bit about the usage of jade (little because the tour was in Spanish for which we were not proficient).

Our purpose was strictly shopping for beautiful jade jewelry.

The staff are most helpful and accommodating. They are standing by to individually wait on the customers. You feel like you are in an exclusive jewelry store in NYC.

Impressed because my friend had to have a ring sized and gentleman walked us up to a restaurant and later brought her ring to the table afterward. Now that is service we had not expected!

I participated in the carve your own jade class with Cesar and really enjoyed my time there. Cesar knows what he is doing and has the most important skill any teacher needs: patience. I ended up with a lovely bracelet that looks as good as it does thanks to Cesar.
I also enjoyed touring the museum which really has an amazing selection of reproductions and an educational component to help you appreciate the value of jade.
Finally I did love the store. They have something for everyone from real expensive to moderately priced and still lovely. I picked up a pretty holiday gift for my daughter in law.

My husband has been a long time customer at casa del jade. I was visiting Guatamala for the first time and my husband brought me to this very special store to buy me a gift.

First, the showroom is exquisite. The salespeople are very nice and helpful. Not pushy at all. I was wearing the jade cross that I had been gifted and the salesman volunteered to polish the silver embellishments.

After searching the store for just the perfect item, I found and exquisite princess jade and pearl bracelet. The salesman told me the translucent gray jade was discovered the same year that princess Diana died and they named the jade after her. I have very thin wrists and the bracelet fit beautifully and was linked thus very comfortable.

The service at casa del jade was only exceeded by the beautiful jewelry. Don’t miss this amazing shop in Antigua.

i walked by this shop every day on the way from my hotel to the central park, every day the nice man who works there would be standing in the doorway and ask me "do you need any jade?" which as a matter of fact I didnt. But every day he politely asked me as i walked by. The store was very nice, the product looked beautiful, but it just wasnt something which i was interested in purchasing at the time. The friendly guy at the door though definitely was nice though.

We had a great time at the jade museum! Berny gave us the short tour and we learned so much about different types of jade and its historical uses. He was very friendly and helpful, he helped us pick out a beautiful ring to buy and talked to us about Antigua.

We had a nice tour on how Jade jewelry is made. Jade is a precious stone found in Guatemala. This place offers free tours on a daily basis. They show you how jade is obtained and the different types available. You can buy plenty of nicely hand-crafted fine jewelry with jade stones. A nice place to go with kids.

not just a store, our group got an education about how jade is mined, its history in central American culture and a mini tour through the shop's 'museum': lovely figures from tikal and other mayan sites. many different jade colors, styles, settings to choose from and they will make an item for you if you prefer something very simple on leather or chain -- nothing is too much for the helpful, attentive and friendly staff... great shopping experience!!
