    THE DIAMOND CENTER / BAHAMAS

    THE DIAMOND CENTER

    PURCHASING ANY JEWELRY FROM THE DIAMOND CENTER IS NOT RECOMMENDED !! THEY HAVE AT LEAST 2 LOCATIONS IN THE BAHAMAS, AND ARE NOT HONORABLE BUSINESS PEOPLE.

    BASICALLY THEY IGNORE / ERASE YOU AFTER YOU BUY JEWELRY FROM THEM. THE STONE FELL OUT OF MY RING AFTER 3 SHORT DAYS. MANY EMAILS & PHONE CALLS MADE TO THE DIAMOND CENTER UPON RETURN BACK TO THE US, DUE TO THEIR LACK OF FOLLOWUP AND/OR CONCERN. THE RING WAS SHIPPED BACK TO THEM FOR REPAIR. THEY GAVE A BIG STORY ABOUT HOW A NEW MOLD WOULD NEED TO BE MADE TO REPAIR THE RING (??) & ACTED AS IF THEY WERE DOING ME A BIG FAVOR TO HONORABLY REPAIR AND/OR REPLACE IT. ULTIMATELY, AFTER WEEKS PASSED THEY ANNOUCED THEY LOST MY RING & REFUSED TO OFFER A REPLACEMENT RING OF EQUAL VALUE. THEY MADE THE DECISION TO JUST OUTRIGHT ISSUE ME A CREDIT.
    TO THIS DAY, I WILL NEVER KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO MY RING.

    Sistah's gotta make a living.

    When you see TONS of black folks on your cruise disembarking in Nassau, and not a ONE of them stop to get their hair braided by the dozen or so Bahama Mama Official Hair Braiders -- wouldn't that make you think , WHY!?!? White folks kill me some times! ; )

    the biggest risk to us female tourists is getting ripped off by the prices these local Bahamian women charge to get our hair braided . they offer $2.00 per braid or $100.00 for your whole head . if you have never had your hair braided before that is very high priced but it sure does look nice .

    The only thing I want to tell all the travelers of Nassau, is that it's very expensive there. And the locals like to take advantage of naive tourists.
