Mexico City is a shopper’s haven, if you know where to look – from artisanal clothing to silver souvenirs and antiques – there is far more to the Mexican capital’s shopping scene than the typical tacky tourist souvenirs. If you’re on the lookout for jewellery in particular, there are a number of stores and markets you simply shouldn’t miss. Here are the top places to buy beautiful jewellery in Mexico City.
Situated on the upmarket Polanco shopping avenue, President Masaryk, TANE is as classy and elegant as its location would have you think. The jewellery on offer here is commercial rather than artisanal, so if you’re looking for something a little more one of a kind then TANE is probably not the place to head, nor would it be a budget shopper’s top choice. Having said that, and even though there are a few more branches across the capital, this is definitely one branch worthy of a visit given its proximity to other key shopping districts alone.
The Mercado Insurgentes de Artesanías y Platería is ideal for souvenir shopping of all kinds, given that it sells everything from traditional sarapes to both ceramic and silver goods, but we also highly recommend it if you’re looking for gorgeous jewellery. Known, as the name suggests, for platería (silver products), you can be sure to pick up some cute pendants or an understated bangle at this local market.
