taj mahal for upscale jewel shopping... not sure what the prices are but I was in a shop the last month and saw some really pretty stuff... it's def the "nicest" shopping experience in the area... i'm sure others can recommend something cheaper..
I'd personally be very cautious purchasing items like this on vacation (anywhere)
I did see some beautiful Jewelry stores - But, I thought the prices were very high - higher than I would pay at home.
Plenty of jewelry stores in ocho rios. do not pay over half of price listed. Take the free drinks they offer waste a little time and start walking out the price gets better. dont act overly interested as the price will move more slowly. I purchased some tanzanite items for a good price.
I will certainly be cautious when buying such items.
As the UK is fairly expensive for absolutly anything, I was hoping Jamaica would be cheaper thank the UK like the US is.
Thank you for all the info!
I second Taj Mahal complex in Ocho for the jewellery although I too found it quite expensive but they do have some wonderful items on display - t'other half was having palpitations and hot sweats as soon as I approached one of the shops!!!!! and I was only looking lol
