About Us

60 Years and counting… !!!

Jewels & Time Duty Free Jewelry Stores are owned and operated by the Mahtani Family in the Caribbean Island of Jamaica. Our stores are located in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. We retail jewelry and watches at competitive prices to customers from around the world.
H.K. Mahtani moved to Jamaica in 1959. He opened his first store, then called “The Presita Shop”, in 1961. Over the years we have changed our name to “Jewels & Time”. Mr. Mahtani passed away in April of 2003 but the stores continue to be family owned and operated by the family. In March 2021 we celebrated our 60th anniversary!
We are guaranteed and recommended by all major cruise lines and approved by the Jamaica Tourist Board. We are a member of the local chamber of commerce and an active supporter for the Jamaica Cancer Society.
