Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I was in Sri Lanka for a holiday but was travelling around the country so had very limited time in Colombo. I knew I wanted a teal sapphire ring so set about researching, looking for a reputable jewellers and came across Salies. I contacted Isam via WhatsApp in advance of my travels with a bunch of photos of the types of ring I liked and a request for a teal sapphire and they did the rest. They sent me various options of ring designs and sapphire colours, along with costs for each type and we took it from there. They were very patient with my decision making, insisting that I must love whatever I chose.

    In the end, I selected a beautiful teal sapphire with diamond accents, set in white gold. Isam and Shazi were absolutely amazing when I was delayed reaching Colombo from Galle, and kept the shop open late for me, and made sure I was totally happy with the ring and that the fit was great before I left. I am thoroughly in love with my new ring and would not hesitate to recommend Salies and if I am ever back in Colombo, I will more certainly be paying another visit to their beautiful store.

    A great recommendation from an expat local. Beautiful hand crafted items, and a great courtyard cafe out the back. A very delightful experience.

    Gem Museum is not a typical museum but a shop displaying highly expensive Gems. Most of the taxi drivers were proposed to take to this places for shopping. All the salespersons are always pushy in these type of shops and try to sell their products but you have to do bargain if you like to buy as they have always asked very high price. It was a good experience to visit the shop in Colombo.

    Wonderful service and beautiful jewellery. My ring was made in 3 days and hand delivered to me. The staff member caught a bus 3 hours away, as we were with a tour group. I chose the stone (pink sapphire) and then it was designed and made. Photo does not do it justice.

    This is an absolute must. The quality is excellent. The colours bright and vibrate. The kids toys are original. The table wear is practical and unique. I so love this shop and their principles of fair trade. Loved it so much i visited their store in Columbo and Kurunegala.
