Is It Worth Buying Jewellery In Bali?
That very much depends on you. Balinese craftspeople are world-class and can work in precious gold and sterling silver with high-quality gemstones and other valuable materials and the pieces often have an understated elegance and modern features for modern women.
However, the prices of precious metals are fixed on the global market, so don’t expect bargains as you seek out that piece with the right level of French elegance, just expect it to be built to last.
What Jewellery Is Bali Known For?
Bali has a rich culture of local artisans making jewellery and they can make everything from contemporary designs to Balinese ethnic jewellery.
Is It Safe To Wear Gold In Bali?
Yes, but as with everywhere, crimes of opportunity can take place and it’s a bad idea to leave gold rings, necklaces, earrings, diamonds, etc. lying around where they might tempt someone.
You should also avoid walking home late at night on your own weighted down with jewellery in Bali. Violent crime is very rare here, but it’s best not to attract too much attention all the same.
Where Can I Buy Bold And Beautiful Necklaces In Bali?
Any of the jewelry stores mentioned above. We’re big fans of Luna & Rose in Canggu and Sunaka Jewelry in Sukawati, but there are plenty of great shops here to choose from.
Where To Get Custom Jewelry Made In Bali?
You can get custom pieces made by any of the silver or gold smiths mentioned above. Prapen Jewelry and John Hardy are particularly well-regarded in Bali for this.
If you intend to buy gold jewellery in Bali, we strongly recommend that you buy from a reputable dealer like the ones listed above, to be sure you get the real deal.
There’s less of a risk of buying something fake in silver, but it’s fair to say that it might not be very good quality unless you buy from a decent jeweller too.
Once you’ve picked or made the perfect piece, why not wear it on a visit to FINNS, the best beach club in the world in Canggu?
