On passenger recommendation (P&O Cruise Ships) we went to look at the diamond jewellery at Joe's. Always one for an impulse purchase, much to the shock of my other half, I chose a large solitaire diamond and some princess cut and baguette ones which they made up into a ring while we went for a drink in a bar nearby. After a call from my credit card company to check it was really me spending that kind of money in St Maarten, the purchase was made!
I had to wait 'til I got back home to have it valued but am thrilled to say it looks amazing, I’ve had a lot of lovely comments about it and the jeweller here in the UK valued it at a few thousand pounds more than I paid for it (which I had hoped would be the case and was the main reason I bought it!). With the M&S credit card foreign transaction charge included it cost me 4300 GBP and was valued at 7500 GBP on my return.
The surprise complimentary gifts of a ring, 3 pairs of earrings and a necklace I was given with the ring are lovely too – it was like opening a treasure trove when I opened all the brightly-coloured silk purses in my shopping bag that day!
So I will continue to recommend Joe's Jewelry to the passengers on P&O cruise ships – “Joe’s Jewelry - straight on, the next corner along from Bulgari, as you get off the jetty at the beach at St Maarten, you can’t afford to go anywhere else!” Great value and free gifts too! I will be back soon on my next Caribbean cruise trip.
