My wife purchased diamond ear rings in St. Thomas 3 years ago and they appraised for double what we paid for. This past cruise, she purchased a diamond bracelet in St. Maarten and it just appraised for 2.5 times what we paid. In both cases, we shopped at popular and well known jewelry stores, we shopped around A LOT for the best price, and we were careful to never let the diamond jewelry out of our sight after we decided to purchase it.
