Great come on first thing in the morning, but we r from NY, right? So this is the Breakfast of Champions! We already knew Neil was the guy to see, as my cousins ring appraised a bit more than she paid. So what did we have to lose? In short, Neil was great, Uncle Ray even nicer. Jewelry on Front st. is purchased for emotion more than inve$tment. So if you really like it; go for it.
But don't forget to bargain... Lost steam after the R&Cs!!! LOL.
Didn't think I'd write this did you Neil?
NOTE: Single women, I think he is unattached. So go to Rays FIRST!

We have been going to Sint Maarten for a few years now and discovered Ray’s Jewelry store. There are 2 locations on Front Street in Philipsburg. The original store is at 86A Front Street (on the west side..Little Bay side) and the newer store is at 38A Front Street (on the east side or ocean liner side of the town main pier). Ray and Keisha still run the original store (86A) and I think you get slightly better pricing at the original store. Their son runs the newer and larger store (38A), which does have a larger inventory.
Either way…whether Neil is helping me at the original store, or his clone Monty (cousins or brothers??) at the newer store is showing me something, I always know that I am getting a very good price, much better than I can get anywhere else on the island. And if I don’t find what I’m looking for, they have made it up for me custom or had something new brought in within a day for me. I may look and shop at other stores in SXM, but I only purchase at Ray’s.
And..they always have great prices on liquor.

Went to Ray's for years till he screwed us. Diamond fell out of the ring and was lost after it was worn twice for a total of 4 hrs.. told me it would cost ME 1400.00 to fix. He's ok if nothing goes wrong. I'll never shop there or reccomend him again

Dear Madame:

I am sorry you had to go through all that trouble due to us. Just to set the record straight you were given a full refund (i.e. did not cost you a penny) . You have shopped with us for years and we would love to retain you as a customer. Let us know how we can make it up to you.

Warm Regards
Ray's Jewelry

Our second time in St.Maarten, love the blue ocean, warm sand and lovely diamonds at Rays Jewelry. I bought a 1.00ct engagement ring from them in 2010 and upgraded for a 2.00ct in Jan this year. Even after 3 years they had my favourite Salesman Monty. He is just a wounderful guy that knows his stuff. He gave me back every thing I paid for my first ring and also gave me a good deal on my new one. I LOVE IT!!! thanks to Ted (my husband)....
