Yes & plenty of shops to choose fro.
Most jewellery is at a very good price in St. Thomas. Nothing we have bought there from reputable shops has been valued below what we paid but it is wise to know general value of things before you go. Some people even go to the extent of photocopying pages of jewellery and electrical items at home and taking them with them ...Nei.
Not as good value as they have been as gold has risen considerably. My advice would be if it is something you really fall in love with then buy it, also a lot of merchandise originates from China and is mass produced, as I have recently learned when having an item valued which I purchased in St Thomas.
Well there are endless jewellery shops on Havensite Mall where cruise ships dock, so you can shop around with a few yards of the ship.
St Thomas is one of the best shopping meccas in the carribean along with Aruba.Every shop is a jewellers,a perfumerie or a liquor store!The name of the game is haggling and you can pick up some amazing bargains,especially compared to UK prices.If you can't find what you want here you must be even pickier than me.
I have bought jewellery on three occasions in St Thomas and when they have been valued in this country I have been more than pleased with the valuation I always get my jewellery at Ballerina jewellers.
