Shopping Gems

Sri Lanka is one of the top gem bearing countries in the world with the highest density of gems in the world and is a global sourcing destination for over 75 varieties of precious and semi-precious gemstones.

It is known the world over that Sri Lankan gems are of high quality. Rough uncut stones can be bought in Sri Lanka for about half the price of those found in the UK. The demand for Sri Lankan gems has produced cheats and crooked salesmen that can dupe any gullible tourist with fake stones. The Government of Sri Lanka has taken strict measures to curb such nefarious activities and has set-up test centers where you can get your gems tested and valued for free.


The best of gold jewellery of exquisite and intricate designs of 22 carat, 18 carat, etc. can be purchased in Sri Lanka at prices that are lower than those found in the Middle East, Europe and elsewhere.

The National Gem & Jewellery Authority was incorporated in 1971by an Act of Parliament as the Regulatory Body of the Gem & Jewellery Industry in Sri Lanka and the gem & Jewellery exchange functions as a One Stop Export Trade Centre to facilitate the entire trade.

It is situated at

Galle Face Terrace,
Colombo 3.
