Kiran’s tanzanites stones are brilliant! She was very kind and generous with her knowledge and assisted me with finding a ring that was just perfect for me! I highly recommend visiting Kiran’s House of Gems!

The tour of the gemstones of Tanzania was very fascinating, especially for a geology lover! They included the unrefined and history of all of the gems, and the staff providing the history was knowledge, friendly and very engaging. The showroom contained a nice variety of every kind and the staff that helped me pick out a few items were very accommodating regarding what I was looking for and my price point. I highly recommend stopping in for any jewelry needs while in Arusha!

My husband and I had a great experience at House of Gems. The staff was terrific - they all had great personalities and were not pushy about making a sale. They genuinely wanted me to find the right stone. Before House of Gems I shopped at the Tanzanite Experience and the House of Gems was not only a better experience but I also save about $400 buying an equivalent quality stone. Definitely recommend a visit to House of Gems!

I was in Arusha March 3 Thursday and wanted to buy Tanzanite. I was taken to House of Gems and the entire experience was educational and rewarding. I picked up a nice stone as well as a couple of nice pendants for my kids. Thank you to the entire staff. 5 star and I got a brief tour of their museum!!!!

Today was on of the best days of my life. Thanks be to God for House of Gems!!! Binta and Farjay were so kind and patient with me. So many beautiful crystals and tanzanite pendants to choose from, it’s mind blowing! It was so much fun and thrilling to shop with Farjay, and Binta is so knowledgable about the different origins of every crystal. Truly a heartwarming experience. I will be back in July to shop again!!

We visited Tanzania to climb the famous Mt Kilimanjaro and during our time in Arusha while we were exploring the green city we were taken to House of Gems after the Masai market.

We absolutely enjoyed our time at House of Gems especially the broad explanations.

We shall return in the near future.

Regards and best wishes

We are so thankful to our experts who recommended us to visit this establishment.

We had such a lovely memorable time.

We absolutely were educated in the Gem museum and this was an eye opener in itself.

We were in a better position to then make our decisions in the showroom again so well explained to us.

We are very satisfied with our purchases.

We are happy to have bought these gems from the sources itself Tanzania.

My family absolutely enjoyed every minute of their trip and we shall definitely return to this paradise and of course visit House of Gems again.
