engagement ring from USA
I am planning to buy an engagement for my girlfriend in the US. I know that I would have to pay the 12% (GST + PST) on the value of the ring when I bring it back to Canada. However, the jeweler does not know the origin of the diamond. If its from a NAFTA country, then it would be duty free. How likely am I going to be charged the 8.5% duty if we honestly don't know where the diamond came from?
