  • Hands down one of the most positive shopping experiences I’ve ever had. After reading other positive reviews about the store, my friend and I decided to give it a visit and we were glad we did. Gunjan immediately makes you feel comfortable when you enter the store – he offered us chai and really listened to what we were looking for. We had tons of questions with regards gems, metals and pricing scenarios and he answered them all in a very straightforward manner while giving us the time and space to decide what we really wanted. Not once did Gunjan pressure us into buying something we didn’t want to buy. A lot of stores give commissions from tour guides that drive tourists to their store, but it’s clear that New Maharaja Gem Palace operates away from this model. We were also able to see our rings before they were to be sent for gold plating. With both of our rings, we weren’t initially entire happy with how the shape of the rings turned out, and after we expressed this to Gunjan and Whisky, they worked to have our feedback addressed immediately to make sure we were happy with our rings at no extra charge. Their willingness to make sure we were happy with our end product is truly what sets them apart. Gunjan and his brother Whisky also invited us over for dinner with his family which was such an memorable experience - great food and great conversation. They even invited us to their cousin's wedding later in the week. My friend and I were dying to attend an Indian wedding, so we couldn’t say no. Gunjan and his mother went as far as to dress us for the wedding (sari and kurta) and insisted we keep the clothes after the wedding! It was truly an incredible experience. In the end, we were super happy with our rings and can now call Gunjan and Whisky friends.
  • After reading the great reviews for New Maharaja Gem Palace, I visited the store and had a great experience. The brothers, Whiskey and Mathur are very honest and knowledgeable about gems and the making of jewelry. They are sincere and helpful. They made a beautiful ring for me based on one I had shown them. Much attention was paid to detail and craftsmanship. In addition, the brothers were able to help me with a distressing situation related to something I had purchased at another store that had been misrepresented to me. I felt very comfortable doing business with them. I found them to be genuine in all their dealings with me. They also design very beautiful modern jewelry and seek out the best stones. I look forward to visiting them again in my travels.
  • We visited the store after reading the great reviews on trip advisor without a guide or driver. I had a pink sapphire and rose gold ring made and we also purchased an emerald and diamond ring. The two brothers were extremely friendly and relaxed and took a lot of time to show us various pieces and explain about the different types of stones they had. We didn't feel any pressure to make a purchase at any point. The ring turned out really nice and they were even generous enough to upgrade the stone when the original one we picked got lost in the workshop. We would not hesitate to buy from them again.
  • We had planned to get a ring made in India for our engagement and found this place online. From the moment we arrived Gunjan (co-owner) was welcoming, really helpful and patient whilst my fiancee was thinking about the different options. We did decide to buy and created a bespoke ring including choice of gem, diamonds and metal. The ring was made that afternoon and delivered in person to our accommodation later that evening. There are no guides taking commissions for this shop so go direct it's opposite Hawa Mahal. The passion and genuine desire for the customer to have something they are happy with was evident throughout the whole process which was enjoyable in itself plus my fiancee now has a ring she is extremely happy with!
  • Famous Jewelry Designers I have just returned to Italy from Jaipur, India. I had to take diamond earrings to give to my niece. I looked on the Internet and I chose the store New Maharaja Gem Palace of the brothers Mathur & Whisky because I read that they do not give commissions to tourist guides. This made me very happy. As soon as I entered the owner immediately told my guide to go out. I bought diamond earrings of great value and manufacture. I chose precious stones and asked to make white gold earrings. They pitted them at the hotel after 3 hours. Mathur & Whisky are very talented. They make Jewelry for celebrities from around the world. Guides and drivers makes 45% commissions. It's crazy. I find it absurd. Mathur & Whisky have fixed price. I advise all tourists to go to them. They have great prices and are courteous and polite.
