Make sure you go to a jeweller approved by your cruise line who will guarantee what you buy. Beware there are are many fakes out there.

Hi, I went to the Caribbean in December and the choice of jewellery on offer is amazing. After touring the islands for the perfect ring I found St Martin was the place to go. It has hundreds of shops, not sure if there is a bvlgari stockist but Im sure you can look it up on the internet. Enjoy your shopping.

If you're going to St Lucia there is a superb shopping centre at the cruise terminal where you can buy good watches and jewellery.

Be very careful. my wife bought a diamond ring in aruba form colombian jewellers and when we got home had it valved and the carats check. it was nowhere near what we bought and the following year took it back with their certificat and our jewellers certificate on the weigt and clarity of diamonds. they did give us our money back and we bought another ring, which wa diamonds set in platinum. this melted/went mishaped the first time my wife wore it. we sent photos and eventually the ring back to them and they offered the choice of either having it repaired or our money back. took the money a free lunch is waiting in aruba for us. their explanation was mis labelling by their staff. i think the truth is you buy they may not see you again!!! be very careful the best place to purchase jewellery in our opionion is turkey .

I bought my diamond necklace from Diamonds International in Antigua in April this year. The price I paid was excellent - much cheaper than elsewhere - reason being was that these shops know the departure times of the cruise liners and are prepared to do really good deals in the last hour just to secure the sale.I saved 85 dollars by purchasing in the last hour.
