Living Jewels: Living Jewels for Diamonds
I have to totally agree with you there is only one place to shop for diamonds in Goa and that is Living Jewels, I have purchased on every trip and now take home orders for friends and family. My son had us get his girlfriends engagement ring made here a pink sapphire and diamond cluster cost £240 and valued in the UK @ £2200 she was delighted. Perry and Harry are lovely people are so warm, friendly, honest and genuine, we speak on the telephone during the year to have a general catch up. We are going back in January no doubt to purchase some more......as they say "diamonds are a girls best friend"

This merchant is the most honest and has the best designs in Goa. He is charming and very ethical. His jewelery is beautiful, only the best stones are used and his personal designs are very unusual.
