Catch a glimpse of Cartagena's diverse history and culture on this easy, fun half-day tour. Your friendly local guide will fill you in on the passing sights with expert narration, and you'll arrive at the Caribbean School of Jewelry, approved by the Colombian Education Ministry.
You're in for a unique learning experience, as the instructors will provide you with a workspace and all the tools you need to learn how to create a piece of jewelry out of .925 sterling silver and emeralds.
Watch demonstrations, listen to instructions, and enjoy a hands-on class during your two-hour lesson. You will learn to melt metals, weld, and laminate as you create a silver ring, a pendant, a pair of earrings, or a bracelet chain.
Watch a video about Colombian emeralds, including how they are mined and cut. This rare and mysterious stone has been sought-after for centuries as a symbol of good health, truth and fidelity. Oddly, the Spanish Crown Jewels boast few emeralds; however, the Crown Jewels of Persia (Iran) contain the most exquisite collection of fine emerald jewelry worldwide.
Continue your tour with a panoramic drive past the San Felipe Fortress and the Old Town en route to the Emerald Museum.
Visit a jewelry shop where you can browse and shop for world-famous Colombian emeralds if you wish.
