    Diamond Ring

    I've been looking for a new diamond wedding band. It's a big anniversary & birthday. Can't find anything I like home. Any ideas in Aruba that has a good selection & trustworthy. I don't want anything gaudy, just a nice eternity band of diamonds. Thanks. Also, the locations. I've read about Kay's here on the forum. Are they located in High Rise area?

    Two recommendations:

    1. Stay far away from Noble Jewelers.

    2. Go to Royal Jewelers and ask for Raj (the owner). You'll get great treatment and a good price. It's OK to negotiate. Not only are they respectable jewelers, we've developed a friendship over the years. http://royaljewelers.net/index.php

    I have no doubt there are other great places to buy jewelery. I can recommend this one and caution you to avoid one where I had bad experiences.

    Go to the jewelers early in your stay and do your specific shopping and get a price for the ring you want. Don't buy it. Say you want to think about it and you'll come back.

    Once they know you are a possible customer and NOT on a cruise ship with limited time to make a deal, you can get a better price. Feel free to tell each jeweler you got a better price for a similar ring at another place. They will probably try to beat that price. Then pick the ring that gives you the best price for the ring you want the most.

    All the jewelers have significant room to negotiate. Don't be afraid to ask. They are prepared to deal that way. They can give you a really good price and still make a good buck. They are NOT going to lose money on a deal. Trust me.

    thanks Andy, I will do that. We are there for 18 days. I will try Kay's and Royal since they have the best reviews from you guys. Its either that or a first class trip to Vegas, lol. Haven't decided which one I want yet.
