Surely the percentage depends entirely upon how good your negotiation tactics are?

Rule of thumb is that the ration is 1:3...If it costs them AED1,000; they mark it up and put the sticker price as AED3,000...Sometimes even much more than that...
The only thing is, is there any diamonds involved???

For diamonds, they mark it up to a ratio of 1:5...Try for more...
Tell them you'll walk out of this sale...
