A tax-free, duty-free shopping mecca, Grand Cayman is known for the huge variety of international brands and luxury shopping boutiques. The main shopping distract is located in the heart of George Town, just steps from the cruise ship port and a short drive from the popular Seven Mile Beach.
There are many reasons why buying diamonds in Cayman (or many other products for that matter) is so popular with locals and tourists alike, here are just a few:
Duty Free and Sales Tax Free
Unlike other destinations, where duty free pricing is usually only available in airports, Grand Cayman’s retailers offer duty free prices to all in down town stores. If you are interested in buying diamonds in Cayman, most stores offer competitive pricing on an extensive collection of jewelry and even loose stones, with deep savings compared to retail pricing in the United States or Europe.
In addition to receiving duty free pricing, there is no sales tax in Cayman Islands. That alone saves up to an additional 9.5% for American visitors, and much more again for Europeans.
Grand Cayman is often called ‘Brand Cayman’ as it is a luxury brands paradise. Along with being in the heart of the Caribbean, Cayman is a very stable and safe country, and so many brands have opened dedicated boutiques and large shop-in-shops on island, offering an unrivalled selection to customers.
The world’s premier diamond brands are here including Hearts On Fire, Cartier and Chopard, not to mention your diamond timepieces!

The allure of Caribbean living and a buzzing shopping industry attracts some of the top sales professionals from around the world. Duty-free retail stores offer outstanding customer service from knowledgeable, multi-lingual sales associates, and the top retailers will have professional gemologists, jewellers and watchmakers on staff.
