I absolutely loved making my own ring. Both Juan (the guide for the activity) and Andrea (the jeweler) made this activity super fun. I did not know what to expect, as I have never done anything like this, and I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. First of all, I had booked an earlier tour to Zipaquira that day, and because of the traffic, I was 30 minutes late. Juan reassured me that he would wait for me, and sure enough, he was waiting for me in front of the Museo de la Moneda. Andrea is super sweet and encouraging (they both were coaching me through all of the steps, and Juan took amazing photos and videos of me making my own ring). I was literally involved in all of the steps, and it was such a unique experience. Andrea will show you the emerald that comes included in the price of the workshop, and then show you more options (say, if you would like to add extra emeralds or diamonds to the ring). I ended up adding 2 little emeralds, as I wanted a three-band ring.
We loved our tour. The graffiti is awesome to see and we got to meet one of the famous artists (out of pure coincidence!!) The guide was kind, professional and knowledgeable. We also saw some great shops and met people along the way :)
