Lihiniya Gems story begins in a small spare room at the back of a family home in the “Dutch Fort” in Galle, Southern Sri Lanka.

Started as a small family business in 1983 by a retired school teacher Mr. Lahir. Since then Lihiniya Gems has served customers around the world through their years of business as a reliable and reputed jeweller and gem merchant in the country.

Three decades on and our customers keep coming back to us for our quality, reliability, service and uniqueness.
