2. Ricardo Carbognin Jewels

Only the jeweler Ricardo Carbognin will remind you this much of the coco de mer nut found exclusively in the World Heritage Site of Vallee de Mai on the Seychellois island of Praslin. The shop's founder and namesake is an Italian man who fell in love with the Seychelles. On offer is a variety of colorful coco de mer-shaped jewels from rings to necklaces and more.

3. Black Pearl of Praslin

Apart from having a wide variety of marine species in its waters, Seychelles also possess sea gems. The black pearl is found on the second-largest island of the Seychelles archipelago, and it is a 100 percent Seychelles-produced item. The Norwegian family who owns the business also manages its pearl hatchery, which you can tour for a small fee.
