Gem shopping

Try your luck

What we say: 3.5 stars

While they're probably outnumbered now by mobile phone shops (who does buy all these phones?!), those that remain offer a dazzling array of colourful precious stones from the surrounding hills and, unexpectedly, from far flung places such as Sri Lanka.

You really need to know your stuff to pick up a bargain, but browsing is fun and in the market itself you can watch the gems being fashioned for rings and other jewellery.
