St Thomas is one of three U.S. Virgin Islands. Just a puddle jump from St John, it’s one of the premier cruise ship destinations in the Caribbean. More than that, St Thomas is an award-winning stop for some of the finest duty-free jewelry around.
If you’re visiting St Thomas on a cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines, Princess Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Norwegian or any of the many other top-notch cruise ships that stop on St Thomas, then you’re in for a duty-free shopping treat like no other.
Planning Your Duty-free Shopping Experience on St Thomas
When you disembark from your ship at the cruise port on St Thomas, you’ll be in a prime location for some of the island’s best food, drinks, views and yes, shopping.
Havensight Mall, which flanks the St Thomas cruise port, is at your doorstep (or gangway, to be precise). Here, you’ll find casual eats, live music, souvenir shopping and more than a few rum stands. On most days, there’s a famous and talented jumbee performing traditional island dances on high-high stilts. Seriously, make a point to see his show and snap a selfie. (Then send it to us!)
But around the corner from Havensight Mall is where the duty-free shopping fun begins (Map). Historic “Jewelry Road,” as locals call it, is flush with jewelers representing every kind of bobble, from casual novelty necklaces [we will want to link to necklace page here] to exquisite engagement rings [we will want to link to rings page here], designer watches and every kind of jewel your heart desires.
In the midst of this glorious row of jewelers is one of the finest and best-respected jewelry shops in the Virgin Islands. This particular jeweler is so special and so memorable, that a cruise ship stop on St Thomas simply is not complete without a visit here.
Imagine working up a sweat after a stroll in the sunshine from your ship to Jewelry Road. Now imagine being greeted by ice cold air conditioning, welcoming and knowledgeable staff, no pressure sales and a free, open bar.
And then imagine cases of the most beautiful handcrafted rings, earrings, necklaces, watches and more.
