    Hi Friends,

    I am from NYC .Moved to USA 6 months ago from, India. It is my first post in this forum.

    I would like to buy the gold mangalsutra with small diamonds from here. I am planning to visit some of the jewellery stores in USA, one of those is Chintamani NJ.

    My question is that, buying this gold jewellery in US is cheaper than in India.?
    or is it better and cheaper to by in india.?
    Is it worth buying gold ornaments here rather than India.?
    will the gold and diamonds are of pure quality her.?
    Please advise ASAP.
    Waiting for ur reply.
    Thanks in advance.

    Its better to buy gold coins or gold bars here..
    Gold ornaments are little pricey due to more labor charges here...

    I second reachingskies. But still i heard from lot of our friends they buy big jewellery like chain,bangles in stead of stud... for big jewellery you can bargain...

    But studs are considered as a piece value.

    Regarding purity few of my friends said they checked with Goldsmith in India, purity wise its so good.

    Thank you so much for the reply guys.

    I had a discussion with chintamani jewellers and from them I came to know that they will apply the same labor charges for the gold ornament as that of in India, so the price will be same as that of in india.

    Whats your opinion on this. does the difference between rupees and dollar will not affect the price of the ornament.?????

    Please advise.

    did any of you buy anything from them, is yes please share ur experience.
