I collect solid gold wristwatches and am fairly current on what is going on with and in the world of wristwatches.I priced several new watches at four of the stores.In every instance, the stated retail price was a whole lot more than what any retailer in the states would list...therefore the "discounts" were very misleading! In all but two brands I could actually acquire the same new watch in the states for less than their "best, duty-free" price. We also looked seriously at diamond bracelets for my wife. We are not as knowledgable about diamonds, but found that an honest, direct answer as to how much one cost was just about impossible to come by. We were looking at 3 cts on up and never felt anyone was being honest. Later, on the same trip, other people told us that Jamaica is NOT the place to buy jewelry. This opinion is about the jewelry shops at Island Village, and those shops only. When we return, we will shop there again, but only for a Paneri watch that I have trouble finding here in the states. Hope you enjoy everything else about Jamaica!
