Gem Museum Tours

Since the 1920 the Gem Museum has been a family-owned and run business offering up some of Sri Lanka’s most prized and beautiful gemstones to locals, travelers, dignitaries and distinguished guests.

Visitors to this spectacularly designed showroom can see flawless diamonds, crystal blue sapphires and other precious stones on display, as well as witness the craftsmanship of on-site professional goldsmiths. An interactive demo educated travelers on the process used to transform raw stones into delicate pieces that are placed in gold or platinum settings. While visitors say this is one of the best place to stock up on stones, those in the know warn it’s essential to know the ins and outs of gems to avoid steep prices for less than precious stones.
