This truly lovely shop is located right in the heart of Road Town in the Romasco Place building on the corner of Waterfront Drive and Administration Drive.
Owner Eileen Bourke (a gem in her own right) has been in the business for many years and this lady really knows her stuff. They sell gems and jewellery designed to appeal to all budget ranges as well as some very exclusive items for their more discerning clientele.
Mi Amor has a full time jeweller on site who will work with you on custom designs or who can repair just about any item you wish. They also will clean your jewellery for you.
Eileen and her very well trained staff are more than happy to help you select just the right gift for friends and family or advise you on the ins and outs of purchasing loose diamonds, emeralds, rubies, or sapphires and what to look for in the various gems prior to selecting a setting.
Mi Amor sells a wide range of fabulous men's and ladies watches, necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings and loads of other gift items for the whole family ... including the kids.
Their Larimar jewellery is positively stunning. Larimar is a volcanic pectolite stone that is also referred to as Stefilia's Stone. To date, this gorgeous blue stone has only been found in the Dominican Republic. Not only is it beautiful, but it is also very rare.
According to jewellers in the know, the darker and more intense the blue colouration, the more rare and valuable the stone. Having said that, I happen to quite like the paler blue too! To care for your Larimar, you should be sure to store it in your jewellery box when you are not wearing it as the colour intensity can fade over time when subjected to light.
