During my years working at a jewelry store, my boss did many appraisals for people, who, bought diamonds in the islands, & left feeling they had made purchases, they wish they hadn't..The appraisal pendulum swings both ways...

Any significant purchase of a diamond, could be, with some diligence, purchased at home, from a jeweler that would be close by for any issues.

Over the years I have made many diamond jewelry purchases on the islands, but not a single stone. Education is key.......Good luck, in your quest....
