    First trip to Aruba.

    This is my first posting on the Aruba forum and our first trip to Aruba. We will be travelling with our very good friends next May to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and would be grateful for any tips you can offer us for first time Aruba newbies.We will be staying at the Riu Palace Antillas hotel and very much looking forward to it. One thing I would like to know are their some good jewellery shops there, as it's our anniversary my Husband would like to buy me some jewellery and I would like something a little bit different to the UK jewellery market. It seems a long way off I know but it will soon come around. Any information gratefully received.

    Welcome to the forum and savor the anticipation for your tip. There are a number of great jewelry stores..... some of the other members have some strong preferences and will share them. There are some threads for jewelry stores you can search for using the search box at the right side of this page.

    welcome to the forum. we just celebrated a big anniversary & my big birthday. I am going to look, too, when i get there in november. I can tell you one thing I noticed about the jewelry stores even though at the time I wasn't looking for anything expensive. They have some very unique pieces. I will never forget a gorgeous bracelet I saw at Kay's (I think it was Kay's) in the high rise area. Is there a Kay's in the high rise area? I still dream of that bracelet. It was a wide cuff with gorgeous semi-precious stones. I never checked how much but every time I passed the window I had to look at it. If by some chance its there, that's what I want. If not, I'll look for a diamond band. But as I said, they had pieces that were not something you see here. That's why I opted not to get anything yet and wait til I get there. But I, too, am looking for a special gift. My husband asked me what I wanted considering the two occasions & I said rather than get just anything, I'd like to wait & see what they have. If not, Vegas here I come...

    Gaby, Kay's is located downtown Oranjestad in the Renaissance Mall. I'm not a big shopper but I love window shopping! At Renaissance Mall and walking further to the "pink building" there are some exquisite stores.

    Here is Kay's website for Aruba (when clicking on the link, a small video is first played):
