Well we did it again, visited our dear friends at Radiant Gems and had a great time - Sunny always knows what I like and he nailed it - a gorgeous blue diamond (teal colored) ring - I also picked up a less expensive one which I'm wearing right now - once again the service was excellent and the prices were too. We highly recommend them to anyone visiting the island - they have another store as well, almost across the street - so stop in and say hi and tell them we sent you

We would like to say thank you to Sonu and his staff for making us so welcome again on our recent trip and for my beautiful diamond ring.

In June 2008, I visited St. Maarten with my wife and two of our friends. We had heard one fo the top things to do on the island is to shop for watches and jewelry in Philipsburg, so we did. Over the course of a week, we probably walked through every store on Front St.

What we did, and I would recommend this to any visitor to St. Maarten, was to: 1) price items in the store, 2) tell them you might come back later in the week, 3) and check all prices against reputable vendors in the U.S. using the internet. Educate yourself carefully so that you know if a "deal" is really a "deal".

Although many stores are questionable (e.g. Joe's Jewelry), we were extremely pleased with Radiant Gems. In particular, we were looking for Tanzanite and, by extensive comparison, their quality was the best that we found. The easy tell was that Tanzanites from most of the other stores did not have the rich blue/purple color of a decent stone, instead being faded and pale. Sunny is an honest salesman. He even suggested that we take his jewelry out of the store to view the stones under natural sunlight - without the effect of jewelry store displays. I would have confidence buying there again.
