Online Review: Buying Gemstones and Jewellery in Sri Lanka
Have you ever been tempted to buy jewellery on your travels? I used to travel an awful lot more than I do these days, and much further afield too. My ex and I would spend time walking around gem stores in Thailand but really without a clue about what we should be looking for. I did come back from Dubai with a diamond ring but we never risked making an investment elsewhere.
