Negotiating with Local Jewellery Stores? (Small Purchase)

I'm looking at picking up a set of earrings, ring, necklace or a bracelet as a gift and want to know if Local Jewellery stores are open to negotiating.

I figure the purchase will be anywhere from $100-300. I'm not to sure if there really open w/ smaller purchases but the mark up on jewellery (especially diamonds) is so high i figure they might..

Has anyone ever tried this? Or had any experience negotiating a lower price w/ smaller purchases?

Thanks in advance

The more you are willing to spend the better deal you will get from the jewler.

what? did you read what I wrote? The more you are willing to spend the higher discount you will get. Thats how business works especially at high end jewlery stores. My friend's dad used to own montebello jewlery shop and he would always tell me about the business.
