Gandelman, Celebrating 85 years of excellence

Gandelman, Celebrating 85 years of excellence

Established in 1931 in Curaçao, the Gandelman family business is proud to be one of the oldest local jewelers in the Caribbean, with a tradition of excellence in products, service and expertise. Built on a solid family business foundation, Gandelman is now in its 4th generation and is celebrating its 85th anniversary this year. Many of their customers go back just as many generations. 

The same goes for their local clientele, with whom they have a trusted and personal relationship since 1981, when they opened their first store in the Mainstreet in Aruba. Always striving to provide their customers an exceptional and memorable shopping experience; they have a knowledgeable staff attending to the individual needs of each customer, perfectly matching the selection to the customer’s lifestyle, special occasion, celebration or profession. The personal touch that their sales staff and customer service team gives is what makes this family business so special.

Gandelman is the only luxury goods company in Aruba to have its own, state of the art Horological Workshop, with Swiss certified watch makers, who are the only professionally trained watch makers in Aruba authorized to service timepieces such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Cartier and Bulgari. 

“When investing in a fine watch, you want to be sure that you can enjoy this treasured timepiece for a lifetime, as it is an heirloom likely to be passed on for generations” says Vanessa Quilotte, assistant managing director at Gandelman.  

“Gandelman is proud to take part in all of the special moments in your life that bring you into one of our stores. Whether it’s your first time visiting us, or you have been a customer for years, we look forward to serving you and making that special moment an unforgettable one!”
