Buying gemstones in Jaipur (India)
In gemstone transactions the buyer and the broker make proposals and counter proposals until an agreement is reached.
• It is strongly recommended to seek help from your Gemsbrokers assistant to lower the price. Use your pocket calculator to communicate.
Always keep in mind that a price once agreed becomes final !
Final prices can be between 30-70% off the original asking price, but most often are around 40-60%.
At this stage, one of the following ensues:
• The negotiation continues and he broker can entrust the gems
to the assistant for a time period to be determined. In his absence you can observe
the gems more carefully and reach a decision on your own terms.
• The negotiation leads to agreement. You and the broker decide
on a price.
