Default Shopping in St. Thomas

Hello all,
I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for shopping in St. Thomas, and Nassau. Will be going there in April on the Paradise. Thanks for the info.

Nassau - don't buy jewellry. Straw Market for souvenirs.
St. Thomas - more jewellry stores than you've ever seen scrunched into the smallest space you've ever seen. No tax. Higher prices than in St. Maarten. Be careful of the small, one-clerk shops. Don't buy the $150.00 "diamond" tennis bracelets. Those are industrial grade diamonds. Trust me...St. Maarten is better for jewellry prices.

The Grand Jewelers - shopped there so much they send me and my mother Christmas cards. They are located in St. Thomas and in St. Marteen. This is the only place I will buy jewelry on a cruise.

I bought a ring in May 2001 and in Jan 2002, knocked it against a door jamb and lost a diamond. Took it back in on my next cruise to St. Thomas (May 2002) and they sent it off for repair and it was back at my house within 2 weeks. They have a lifetime guarantee on all jewelry and each piece my mother and I have bought have appraised higher than what we paid - some by big bucks and some we just save a little on (we use a long time family friend who has in the past told us is we paid more than piece was worth - he is trustworthy).

Ash is the name of the guy that usually waits on us. On our May 02 cruise he was in St. Thomas, then in July 02 I went to St. Marteen and he was there....bought more stuff.
