I work in a jewelry store, and let me tell you, Maya is not as over-priced as most places around Austin. They have beautiful chunky rings made of turquoise, moonstone, onyx, and many other semi precious stones. One of the most expensive rings I saw in the store was $70 - that is really not bad, especially considering that all of their rings are shipped to their store from India. The price of gold and silver is always increasing. At the store where I work (a very well known and popular jewelry store... I'll keep it anonymous) you can't get a silver ring with a stone in it for less than $75, and that is for an extremely thin silver band with a very tiny stone, made right here in Texas (less money spent on shipping merchandise should mean cheaper prices, right?). I'm a fan of Maya!

Pros: Great rings, decent prices

Cons: Downtown - sometimes parking can be tough

As someone new to Austin and the South Congress shopping area I was so excited when I entered Maya Star! I knew instantly it would be one of my favorite shopping stops in town. The owner has such a unique eye! Upon entering your eyes immediately meet a fifteen foot iron tree with colorful glass orbs covering it. The store itself is a perfect mixture of BEAUTIFUL jewelry from around the world, fun party dresses, and an unbelievable variety of gifts. You can literally spend an hour in the store and not see everything. I think what really makes this place special, though, are the girls that work there. They are knowledgeable, helpful, sweet, and their uniqueness only adds to the charm of the store. If you live here or are just visiting, Maya Star is a must-see!

Not impressed. The jewelry there is cheaply made and VERY overpriced for what it is. Have you ever heard of solid gold? The clothes are cute at first look, but they are way too trendy and you can't wear them past the current season. Also the staff is a bit rude, and very smug even though they look like they have no style themselves. Basically the store is a Monet, from far away- nice -but up close, big ,old mess.

Pros: Look from far away, or before you see un-godly price tags

Cons: Quality of merchandise especially jewelry as well as over-priced, clothes too trendy

Latin American/Mexican art can all be found here! Small little antique store that also features local artists. Walking distance from many other stores and places to eat. Great for gift shopping or just a nice stroll through to check out the interesting products!
