- Wedding: June 2014 - Italiano's Humble
Yesterday, FH and I went to the indoor marketplace(flea market), to have something to do. While walking, we came across several jewelry “stores”. I use the term loosely, for most. A couple were actually very professional.
One I stopped at, looked to have tiny black diamond earrings(for $50). I figured, that’s not too bad, I see BD earrings all over the internet for about that price, whether silver or gold.
So, we’re talking and she tells me no, they’re black cubic zirconia. Then she proceeds to tell me that BD’s are THE most expensive diamonds, up there with blue. So I say that’s strange, b/c I found a little over a carat 3 stone all BD Engagement Ring, for only $700. She tells me they’re FAKE. She pulls out these 1/10 carat loose “BD”s(that had a more grey tone, than most BD’s I’ve seen, actually.). She says those stones alone, are $100/pp, much less only $700 for a whole carat, no matter how “cut up” they are.
I’m literally arguing with this woman. All the major retailers, including Jerrod’s, etc, carry black diamonds for LOW prices. I tell her this, and she still says they’re FAKE! So I make the response “Well, I guess they’re all commiting fraud, b/c the’re selling them, and outside appraisers are giving these stones pretty decent marks, along with insurance companies”. She says YES, they’re all fake, probably black onyx or CZ. This bitch is crazy. So I explain to her what a Black diamond is, using my google knowledge, and XFIL, who’s a coal miner, and has taken courses on the various diamonds(IDK why, LOL. His company requires it?!).
OMG, I wanted to punch her. I even asked her, about Black Market African diamonds. A VERY hot button for alot of people. Bitch tells me THOSE are fake too, and she has no idea what the fight is about!
SMDH, some people!
