After an awesome half day excursion to the DMZ, my full bus of tourists was unfortunately forced to parade through this place with various hawkers enticing us to buy their stuff. I could tell that it was not a good place to shop, and even...More

bought a ring from them...they sized it to fit me, but stretched the material too thin. Broke in a months time...their lifetime warranty is only good if you can bring the jewelry back to korea.

There are some very pretty pieces of jewelry in this store. However, I find their prices too high to compete for my business. I've priced pieces at other stores on the Korean Peninsula and liked their prices better. I will say that there was a...More

Part of our tour is a visit to Seoul Amethyst Store. They have a beautiful jewelry store that basically sells Amethyst. Tourists who buy Amethyst bracelets, ring or necklace get a discount from this shop.

We visited this shop as part of an organized tour of other places. The shop workers haggled prices. Initially 20 percent off and then eventually 35 percent. The stones were lighter purple: darker the stone more valuable. I wasn't impressed.

Many tour groups come to this store where you can actually see a workshop where the amethysts are cut, polished and the actual jewellery is crafted. There is a wide range of jewellery available for sale.

Yeoido
Along with Gangnam and Samseongdong, Yeoido completes
the trifecta of Seoul’s three main business districts.
Steel and glass towers are the most visible sights,
reflecting Yeoido’s general association as a business
hub. But Yeoido is also where Korea’s laws are debated
and enacted by Korea’s legislators within the iconic
National Assembly Building. For an escape from urban
