We suggest you confine your serious shopping to Santo Domingo. However, we did discover an intriguing little jewelry store: Amber, at the Oasis Hamaca Beach Hotel, Calle Duarte 1 (tel. 809/523-4611). It sells jewelry made with semiprecious stones, along with a selection of amber and both white and yellow gold items.
