For a $20,000 ring,(One 5 carat diamond and two l.5 carat diamonds in a platinum setting) this TEENAGER was given $800.00.
This establishment knew from the start the situation was wrong, but they chose to disregard the obvious to take advantage and make a profit. A very large profit!
Please be aware of this establishment and their seeming lack of decency and business standards. This last statement is, of course, my opinion. The person who purchased this ring is unfortunately, also a victim.
