Amsterdam Sauer, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro

Amsterdam Sauer, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro

What to buy here: GEMSTONE CRAFTS: Precious stones and crafts made of them are a tantalizing option for those looking for something more sparkling and glamorous. Rio is a great place to go scavenging for gemstone objects, such as jewellery and decorative objects. Brazil is rich in minerals, inspiring artists to produce works that reflect the country’s natural exuberance and wealth. Feira Hippie de Ipanema, the art market in the heart of Ipanema, is a great destination to go hunting for gemstone crafts. It takes place at Praça General Osório every Sunday from 9am to 5pm. For a more upmarket – and expensive – range of wearable gem-based accessories, Amsterdam Sauer is a well-known destination. The first shop was inaugurated in 1953 inside the Copacabana Palace Hotel and their advertising campaigns feature famous Brazilian celebrities. The company has several shops, including one on Copacabana’s sea front at Av. Atlântica, 1782. Tel: (21) 2548.6029.

Gemstone crafts from Feira Hippie can be purchased from around $50 per piece, and it’s okay to haggle in Brazil’s markets. At Amsterdam Sauer, you’ll need deeper pockets. For example, a citrine and amethyst ring will set you back $2,650.
