The Treasures of México Found at La Turquesa
By Fernando Rodríguez
”La Turquesa Jewelry and Art promotes a lot of local art, and has excellent pieces of talented artists and artisans of Los Cabos,” said Hugo De La Rosa Castro during his visit to vacation beach paradise Los Cabos. Castro also raved about the reasonably priced silver jewelry. Owner Carlo Sotelo Perez specializes in the sale of silver jewelry, turquoise Navajo style treasures, local crafts, Talavera pottery and blown glass from the central mainland of Mexico.
Since first opening on July 27, 2013, Carlo Sotelo Perez has enjoyed a gradual increase in business and notoriety, as his small business has reached a level of popularity among visiting U.S. American, Canadian, and mainland Mexico buyers. ”This is the best place in Cabo for beautiful jewlery and art work and gifts for your loved ones,” commented Deb Kaminski from the western American state of Washington during her recent visit.
Canadian Jamie Lang added with excitement that, ”Carlo and his friendly staff are a wonderful team and have exceptional merchandise for a great price! So welcoming and very generous with their tequila!” During her recent November 2019 visit, Carol M from the Northwest USA also chimed with delight as she explained, ”We were offered bottled water upon entering which we appreciated as it was hotter than hell outside. The owner chatted with me about Mexican folklore and some of the pieces I was interested in. He was very amiable and very knowledgeable. Honestly, there were so many pieces I would have bought if I had the money and the space.”
Carlo Sotelo Perez, himself spoke of a lady from Waterford, Michigan who had searched all over town for pink and teal fire opal stud earrings, and not only found them in his store but also purchased a beautiful triple bangle bracelet and nice silver hoop earrings. All at very good prices.
