Default Today's big question

Who is the guy who started Diamonds International, and what does his house look like?! I can only imagine...

Cheers,
Michelle P.

I don't know who the guys were who started the business 20 years ago, but they've really done pretty well for themselves. They began with one store in St. Thomas, and the count has reached 80+ store locations since then. They're all over the Caribbean, as well as Vegas and Key West in the U.S. As for their homes, I would guess that they're pretty snazzy!

That's why I'd like to see the house! I'll bet it's as snazzy as Trump's!

Cheers,

Don't know but I've been told by the cruise consultants that they're mid-easterners.

Each time my husband and I leave the country we always call our credit card company to give them a list of countries we'll be visiting so they won't be suspicious of charges. DeWayne the Magnificent (scoundrel that he is) always asks the young lady (it's always a lady somehow when he calls) to put a block on any charges made at Diamonds Int'l.
Ya' just gotta love him.
