grandmother and granddaughter and some of their beautiful pearls!
Ok ladies, here is the jewelry store that you need to visit in St. Barth’s. Remember I wrote about the South Sea pearls at Pacha Mama in Sayulita? Well, Bijoux de la Mer is the original store, started by the grandmother of the same family. Some of the daughters and granddaughters still live in St. Barth’s and can be found in this little boutique where you can select your own strand of the legendary pearls. Pretty much everyone on the island has their own strand (the guys too), even if it’s a single pearl, making them all part of a very chic private club. Bijoux de la Mer also has some other amazing jewels, such as turquoise and shell pieces similarly strung on leather like the pearls above. Some people swear they bring good energy and good luck, and just as importantly, they look amazing!
Bijoux de la Mer, Rue de la Republique – Gustavia – 97133 St. Barthelemy, Telephone: 0590 52 37 68
