  6. I travel to Singapore frequently, and there is definitely a discount to be had in most high end jewellery/watch stores there. I remember going into the Cartier boutique to look at a watch, and the price they offered me was definitely discounted from the tag price........I can't recall the exact discount, but 20% sounds about right. In other stores that sell Cartier watches, 20-40% discount is possible, although to get 40% you have to be spending some serious money!! I tend to just ask straight out 'what is your best price' or 'are you able to give me a discount on this'. In Cartier, they will quote you the final price straight off. In other cartier-certified stores, the initial discount price is seldom their absolute final price, and it might take a bit more haggling to get the price down a bit more. HTH!
  7. Thanks a lot for your suggestions but we were a bit lame and only managed 15.1% discount to get to a nice round number but it was sort of OK together with the 5% GST refund (net is less than that). I have something to show you ladies though;) :

    1910 diamond brooch signed J.C. for Jacques Cartier with the left tassles added later. I got it at Christie's this month:greengrin:: [​IMG]

    Sorry for mobile phone quality with some serious amateurish photoshop (BTW, the paper it's on is supposed to be white:roflmfao:). I'll post a proper pic wearing it when I actually have someone to take a pic of me :cry: to make it more meaningful but the thingy is 12cm across.

    Thanks for letting me share:flowers: . I'll 'premiere' my Caresse on my wedding date as my 'something new.' So let's start a scaling-up war up to that date for fun:flowers:. Ladies please post pics of your jewellery to put me back in my place, I want to drool over your pieces too!(lilach, I dare you to come and beat me:graucho: ).

    I've been told this week on my trip afterwards to HK by a lady that my dress sense is plain diabolical and so unfashionable. Perhaps she is right because I have such an 'old-hag' brooch, lol!
