Puerto Vallarta Shopping

Joyería El Opalo

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

It's a bright spot in a nearly abandoned mall that has stayed afloat through its cruise-ship contacts. Look for it near the northern entrance to the open-air mall, across the street from Gold's Gym. Silver jewelry ranges in price from $3 per gram for simpler pieces to $30 a gram for the lighter, finer-quality, more complex pieces. There's high-grade "950" silver jewelry in addition to the usual "925" sterling silver. Look for gold settings as well. Most of the semiprecious stones—amethyst, topaz, malachite, black onyx, and opal in 28 colors—are of Mexican origin. They sell blue diamond jewelry and increasingly rare tanzanite. The diamond-cut necklaces are magnificent. If you want to comparison-shop, there are three or four other jewelry stores in the immediate vicinity.
