Very true & same for the Philippines where it’s mostly diamonds,
rubies, sapphires, emeralds, mainly diamonds though.
Don’t despair though, the Internet is helping a lot, especially w/
those people who have access.a Younger people, etc.a They’re the
new breed of buyers, and if they have money to log-on in the first
place, they’re the ones who’ll likely indulge in jewelry too,
providing you establish a good rapport.
Good luck to ya
