THE UNIQUE JEWELLERY SHOP
Situated at historical Redcliffe Quay, towards the waterfront, you will find the five arched doors of The Goldsmitty, a spacious, air conditioned, one of a kind jewellery shop. All the jewellery is hand made on the premises and is designed by the owner, Hans Smit, world renowned for his expertise.
Hans studied at the Academy of Modern Art in Holland and has been sharing his talent in Antigua since 1965 when he took up residence on the island. He has trained some young, local apprentices the skills and secrets of jewellery making, affording The Goldsmitty an exclusive line of handmade creations.
Black Opal, Imperial Topaz, Tanzanite, Namibian blue green Tourmaline and other rare and exotic gemstones are set in exquisite creations of 14 and 18 karat gold often accentuated by a sprinkle of diamonds. The style of design has often been called ‘organic’ as coral formations, Caribbean sunsets and underwater vistas are usually a source of inspiration.
There are exceptional and valuable items available for that special occasion and Hans also caters for your personalized tastes, creating any individual item to enhance a person’s natural beauty.
This is not just another jewellery store; it is more like an art gallery. It is important to remember that this jewellery is not sold anywhere else and is duty free into the US (CBI) and Canada (CARIBICAN). All these unique creations are only available at The Goldsmitty.
