Default Re: Diamond Earring Shopping in St. Thomas

My husband knows someone that bought a pair of diamond earrings at Ballerina's in St. Thomas. She was told that they were very good quality and paid about 800.00 for 1 carat earrings. When she got them back to the states she had them apprasied and was told that one of the earrings was almost perfect, therefore they appraised for almost $10,000.00 Not a bad deal. She had told us about this place but we never had a chance to make it there. I bought a pair of Tanzanite earrings from Diamonds International in St. Thomas and they are very good quality and also the price was right. We talked her down from $800.00 to 350.00. If the merchants are hungary, they are willing to deal. Just keep acting like you are interested but can't pay the price. Nine times out of ten they will deal with you. Oh yeah., my husband also got a beer out of the deal.!!!! Weird... But he was happy.
