Our Story

Gemstones and semi precious stones are Dinesh’s favorite. He sources the stones and Anju gets the design going. All of our pieces are handmade in Vicenza,Italy and our diamonds are cut and polished in Antwerp, Belgium. We know that trust plays a huge factor, this is why we have lifetime warranty on all our pieces. If anything does happen we have a service center in New York. All you have to do is contact us, we’ll fix it and send it right back. With every purchase you get a certified appraisal from us and an independent company from New York.

It all started in 1993 when Dinesh decided to attend the Gemmological Institute of India. He graduated on February 15, 1995.
Anju and Dinesh were high school sweet heart’s, as they call it. They loved each other. But in order to marry Anju, Dinesh had to get a job. His uncle found an opening at one of the very first jewelry stores in Aruba.

After almost 2 years, Dinesh returned to India to marry Anju. They got married on the 3rd of July in 1998. Anju and Dinesh moved to Aruba and worked for a couple of jewelry stores. The couple always hoped to opening their own jewelry store one day.

In 2001, their first daughter, Rhea, was born. In 2003, their second daughter, Sufi, was born. In that same year, Dinesh and Anju opened their very own jewelry store at the Renaissance Marketplace in Downtown. At one point, in 2008, Anju and Dinesh had 3 stores on the island. In this same year the company started designing some of their own pieces.

In December 2016 Jewels in Paradise opened at the Ritz-Carlton, Aruba. In 2018 Jewels in Paradise became a GIA Listed jewelry store.

Jewels in Paradise also appreciates work of others , such as: John Hardy, Dada Arrigoni, Stefan Hafner, Io Si Scavia Italian Jewelry and Etho Maria Haute Joaillerie.

Dinesh & Anju hope to keep growing and striving to be the hip, modern and contemporary jewelry company that they are.
Express your personality with a jewel that says everything about you. Like Anju always says, “Life is short, so flaunt it while you can”. But, above all, Dinesh & Anju hope to keep making memories...because after all, that is what life is about.
