Julie's Jewels and Gifts Complaint - Buyer Beware Take Jewelry Loup and Inspect
GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I had a ring made for me. I wanted 1 caret of diamonds in a channel set platinum setting with quality stones. It was a wedding ring. It was the last money I had too. About 34 stones were in it. I was told they were S-I grade stones and was charged $2000 plus tax. I knew the owner and thought she was a friend. Well years later I had the opportunity to look at the stones under a loupe and saw at least 3 chipped, laser cut and cracked stones. I was sick and didn't look at the rest. NOT what I was told they would be. When I contacted the owner whom I thought I had a personal friendship with she refused to look at the ring or talk about it. She sent me a very unprofessional typed half torn registered letter with threats of restraining orders and bogus junk that never amounted to anything. I wanted my money back for this junk. She refuses. I wouldn't do business with her again ever and am telling everyone in Greenville, SC not to shop on Haywood Rd unless they want to be ripped off and lied to. Take a jewelers loupe so you can at least see the obvious flaws that should never have been in SI stones. I'm stuck with this ring I thought my so called friend sold me. Bad business and worse friend.
I am shocked at her reaction. She should be happy to return my money. She acted so defensive it could only have been from guilt. She HAD to have know that these stones were junk. She lied.
