  1. Hi there
    I am looking to have a ring custom made for me. I live in the UK and have a few quotes from UK jewellers but I also remember a thread on here about buying jewellery from Dubai... and that has led me to think about maybe having it made there. It will be white gold with pave diamonds.

    I have contacted a few Dubai jewellers (recommended via posts on Tripadvisor and some dubai expat forums) and they are all providing excellent quotes compared to UK.

    I am still measuring up the pros and cons of doing this - but in the meantime, does anyone have any personal experience, horror stories or comments they would like to share? And any recommendations of jewellers in Dubai?

    Forgot to add - I wont be going to Dubai so if I did commission a jeweller, it would be communication via email and phone. I do have lots of photos of the ring I want.

    Many thanks
     
  2. Do you have to pay any duty or other tax to bring it in from Dubai to the UK which would make buying it in the UK more cost efficient?
     
  3. Thanks Atty2de. Yes, I've thought about that. One of the jewellers in Dubai that has quoted me has said that they will provide a receipt that says I have purchased it previously and am sending it back for repair, so I would only have to pay tax on repair, rather than full cost of ring. Does this sound viable?
     
  4. I am based in Dubai and have a jeweller who custom made and cleaned my jewelry. If interested, I can give you his contacts. :smile:
     
  5. oo yes please lightpinkdaisy. Will PM you now.

  8. I have a necklace, bracelet and ring from Dubai. Very satisfied, great diamond quality, great prices. I had it make but picked it up myself while I was there. I think the name was Cara, I would have to double check.
