    Gandelman's Jewelers

    Does anyone know if Gandelman's still has a store in the lobby of the Marriott Stellaris? I think they may have moved it to the Hyatt. I got friendly with one of the salesman there (maybe cuz I bought a little sumthin' sumthin' for yours truly two years in a row!). Want to pay a visit when I'm on the island next month to get the sumthins cleaned. Okay, I may have to look in the cases as well...

    There is no Gandleman's in Marriott. I saw a ring at the one at the Hyatt (that Gandleman's was there for a pretty long time, as long as I have been going to Aruba). And they didn't have my size, the magazine said there was one at Stellaris but i went there, it is gone. There is one downtown at the Renaissance Mall but you can see the store from the street.

    I bought the most beautiful Yurman eternity band there, got 15% off and no tax. I wanted another one but going online to their website or to Bloomies who both carry it, no percentage off and I have to pay tax. Hoping they still have it there this year to get another one though I noticed the price of the ring ont hose sites went up $100. But if its gold, they take 15% off, if not 10% off.

    There is now a Jewelry store in the Marriott, right outside the Stellaris Casino, but it is a Gemani Jewelers. We have bought jewelry occasionally during our visits to Aruba, but not at Gemani. We find that the prices on name brand items like most watches and Lagos and Yurman jewelry can be beaten in the US, if you have a good jeweler or even some retail chains. We have bought things that are unique to a jewelry store here that we have not seen in the US.

    I’ve made a few purchases from the Gandlemans downtown location. Have been very happy with the pieces. They have some good priced on their David Yurman collections.

    Gandleman's was cheaper than the Yurman site and cheaper than Bloomies. And no tax, lol

    Thanks, everyone! I'll probably trek over the Hyatt and see if Gary is now working there. May go to the one downtown but would really like to give him the business (that is if any little "sumthin" strikes my fancy!) since he was such a pleasure to deal with.
