We went visited their store at Gems and Jades Trade Center. When we arrived, the electricity was shut down because of out of power. We have a quick brow through their display over the counter but not that impressed!!

Credits to Kaung Sint Yadanar Gems @ Gems Museum and Gems Trade Center, located at Kaba Aye Pagoda Road, Ygn, for their reasonable price, the best quality ever I have seen in town, the honesty is their pride and dignity in the Business.

They know what they are doing, hard working people and you will experience satisfaction and joyful shopping with them. I love it!

Reading on the internet it seems many travelers have been sold gems which are not what they think they are buying, based on valuations when they get home. There is so little information on the internet as to which shops are honest traders. One name did come up, and this was Kaung Sint Yadanar Gems and Jewellery. May Thanda Lwin is a lovely person to deal with and her prices are very reasonable. She is very honest and will let you know if stones are treated or untreated. She exhibits at trade fairs in other countries where keeping your reputation is very important. My purchase was an inexpensive one, but the level of service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Kaung Sint Yadanar Gems and Jewellery is where we found the best place to buy genuine Burma gemstones in Rangoon. We collect gemstones ourselves and have purchased them in different gem producing countries over a lifetime. We know high quality to price ratios when buying and have had much experience for this. May Way Lwin, a gemologist, and her sister who is wonderfully social and kind while dealing, as well as their brother, a geologist, are overly fair and passionate on gemstones and their family business of selling them. We spent two full days searching and looking through many gem shops and dealers stocks and prices and once we found May Wah Lwin and her family company we compared quality and price and found they were by far the most honest and had the best selections. We ended up buying several high quality gemstones from them and are so pleased.
