The ring workshop was awesome! Definitely recommend! We needed a lot of time to figure out our design. Mainly Because we wanted to use the emeralds we found by ourselfs in the mines of Chivor. And because we also polished them by ourselfs (not a professional :D) they didnt fit in the standard cages which was a bit of a challenge. Luckily Juan & Andrea were really patient with us and in the end everything worked out perfectly!

Amazing experience!! This is a must if anyone is ever in Bogota. We enjoyed the whole ring making and were able to learn a great amount of history. We loved how our rings came out and felt supported through the whole process. Highly recommend!!

Incredible experience! Andrea was amazing and Juan was very helpful. We had a very stressful start and ended up almost 30 minutes late (don’t recommend!) but Juan waited for us anyway. He was very informative on our way to the workshop. Andrea was outstanding— she guided us but also let us do a lot by ourselves. We learned so much and definitely have a much bigger appreciation for the process and techniques used.

This is a good experience. You make the ring from start to finish, and it is a quality emerald that you put into the ring. You also have the opportunity to buy other emerald jewelry, and since you're buying them in the source country, it is much cheaper than in the States.
