    My first choice would be the one on 12 de Julio immediately opposite the Post Office. Has honest prices although not a huge selection. Now run by the widow of the gentleman who used to run it, who died not so long ago. She is helped by her brother-in-law. If they don't have what you want it might be an idea to strike up a conversation & ask if they could get it. Most shops here will do that sort of thing if you take time to enquire about the family etc.

    Second choice would be Soler on Beller - much wider selection, prices not quite as competitive IMHO, but very helpful people. If you're looking for silver, larimar etc then Fine Gift Centre on 12 de Julio but tourists go there so bargain.

    If you don't mind buying second hand, Compra Venta Antonio has great selection and prices (it's near Caribe Tours in POP - sort of behind it on a side street). It's not your typical low class compra venta.

    If you buy there, first ask for the Discount card. You can get it on the spot and then you will get 15% off the already low prices. Good place to buy gold jewelry.

    I agree, excellent place for gold. AK74, if you know Bob Hildreth, he's the owner. Involved in lots of charitable organisations around Puerto Plata.

    Thank you for the great advice as usual , Ginnie!
    A beautiful ring with seven nice tested and certified diamonds is bought for $13 000 RD (negotiated down from $21 000 RD)

    I was just in Puerto Plata, and went to the Jewlry store in the same building as Compra Venta Antonio, Joyeria Las Americas. Appears to be the same owners. We found them by far the cheapest in gold jewelry and thousands of pieces to select from. Their card had a website Joyería Las Amerícas - Largest retail Jewelry store in the dominican republic located in Puerto Plata offering larimar, amber and so much more ... definatly worth a stop.
