Yes, there are a number of good quality jewelry stores in Margarita.

They will charge you the US$ price per gram (US$41.61) x the black market rate for Bolivars, currently close to Bs.32 to US$1 + whatever profit & workmanship is included in the price. You may be able to buy gold coins although I'm not sure about that. We have so many strange rules here.

There are also a number of pawn shops in Margarita but be careful for forgeries or false gold.
