About Us

50 Years and counting… !!!

Jewels & Time are family owned Duty Free stores situated in the Caribbean Island of Jamaica. Our stores are located in Montego Bay, Falmouth & Ocho Rios. We retail jewelry and watches at competitive prices to visitors 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” and expanded to four stores. Mr. Mahtani passed away in April of 2003 but the stores continue to be family owned and operated. In March 2011 we celebrated our 50th 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.
