“The best shop in town”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

It is all about art and its expression. From simple unique coral, to sophisticated precious gem jewelleries, all created by the passionate young owners Anja and Vittorio, with the help of their assistant Nicolas.
Their work is following the tradition of the Mediterranean ornaments through history, from the time of the Dubrovnik republic to this very day. The red coral is the symbol of vitality and protective charm all over the Mediterranean. The tradition in Dubrovnik is to offer a small coral bracelet to a new born baby, for luck and futur happiness in life.
A place one needs to be when in the old town of Dubrovnik.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

I passed by this store and checked out some pearl accessories (without the intention to buy....)
And yet the staff in the store were all very helpful and professional - unlike other stores where people lost attention / interest in you once they know you aren't going to spend in their stores - they were consistently friendly and explained (in detail) how red coral accessories are prepared and why the prices are justified. I'm esp. impressed by how knowledgeable Nikolas was (not sure if I get his name correct ;)) after all it is a nice place to visit - their goods are really nice!

“Unique and inviting if a little pricy”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

Dubrovnik old town is full of shops selling hand made jewellery. Clara Stone is in my opinion the best of them. Located on a street off the main main street and split over two shops. One side of the street is main show room housing the most expensive pieces. Opposite is a boutique style shop.

Nowhere else in the city did I see the jewellery so well displayed nor such good examples. While most of the show items were beyond my pocket the staff were only happy to help full of enthusiasm and knowledgeable about the products. In fact I can't praise the staff enough they went out of their way to help us searching for gifts suggesting lower priced but still beautiful items.

They let my wife try on countless numbers of pieces until we found some she liked (and I could afford). They have pieces to suit all budgets. We ended up taking a bracelet and making the earrings to match while we went for lunch.
