Emerald Shopping - Shopping Cartagena - Colombia

El Centro houses an overwhelming selection of emerald shops, which are concentrated around Calle del Ladrinal. Many sell gems found in Boyacá Department. Jewelry ranges in quality and size, but prices are consistently high. If you’re serious about buying, expect to bargain down to about 50 percent of the price quoted, which might explain why some stores have “50 percent off” slogans permanently painted on their windows. Also, don’t be fooled by the elegant interior of a place—some of the cloudiest emeralds can be found at the seemingly fanciest places. Hired men will try to lure you in to their stores for you to take a look. Note that “Museo de la Esmeralda” is a jewelry store like its competitors and not a museum at all. Nonetheless, if you are selective, inquisitive and keen enough, you could still find that gorgeous piece you are seeking.
