Jewels by Love is proud to announce the opening of their sleek new watch and jewelry salon at No. 69B Front Street in Philipsburg. As a branch of the fabled fifth generation family owned Jewels by Love store in Marigot on French St. Martin, this new store on Dutch St. Maarten is managed by Rish Love Mahtani, following in the footsteps of his trailblazing father Love Mahtani.
In tribute to Jewels by Love's flawless reputation, three of the world’s
four greatest watchmakers are already on display at this new location:
Breguet | Vacheron Constantin | A. Lange & Söhne
- for the very first time ever in Dutch St. Maarten!
The Big Four are widely recognized as the greatest watchmakers of all time. In what is both a tribute and a testimonial to their reputation, unrivaled quality and timeless value, virtually all the world records at auctions are held by the Big Four testifying to the fact that they are art, heirloom and investment all rolled in one. Not only are they easily portable and extremely liquid investments but they almost invariably appreciate in value and are very discreetly under-the-radar as well.
A mere handful of jewelers in the entire world have the privilege of being invited by ALL of the Big Four to showcase their collections under one roof. Jewels by Love has the unique privilege of being honored with this distinction. In addition, they represent such renowned watchmakers as I.W.C., Ulysse Nardin and Jaeger-LeCoultre.
Located in Marigot and Philipsburg, Jewels by Love also offers an exquisite, in-house designed line of hand-crafted diamond jewelry and an extensive collection of finely cut GIA Certified Diamonds.
As ever, the team at the new Jewels by Love store is well-trained, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and will give you honest and expert counsel on your watch, jewelry and diamond investments.

Dona Bryhiel has her studio and showroom away from the commercial zones. Between quiet Baie Lucas and Oyster Pond are the premises of this French artist with very interesting artworks of Caribbean and Southern France subjects. If not in the South of France, you find her personally in the cozy, small gallery at Avenue du Lagon, the coastal road along the east side of the island. Beside Caribbean landscape and nature, she also has fine paintings of Caribbean people, especially women. A visit is also worthwhile, if you just only like to buy a few souvenirs with a unique design. You find tempting ceramic artwork, textiles, such as T-Shirts, and small gadgets for adults and kids. She also ships internationally.
Some artists are working in secluded studios, and display their work in famous NY-City galleries, or elsewhere in the world. A typical example is Norma Trimborn with her unique, expressive oil paintings of exceptional vigor. Norma and her evenly talented sister Corinna work in the quiet neighborhood of the French Lowlands. Some of their paintings reflect the nature and the vivid colors of the Caribbean, whereas the majority of paintings is focused on people, their feelings, and the expression of their inner conflicts and emotional tensions.
