SO, a few weeks go by and i call him to find out if its ready, since I had not heard form him in the 2 weeks time frame he had promised. He said it was ready. I went to pick it up and noticed that all the diamonds were tapered. ( Tapered means the rectangle shaped diamonds went into a point at the end and they set them in a way where they appear to be squared off and straight ).
Anyhow, these were not the diamonds I had purchased! I had purchased baguettes, ( rectangle cut ) Michael had switched the diamonds on me. This is considered the most un ethical and dishonest thing one can do in the jewelry business. SO, I called him on it and we got into an argument. First he tried to bull-s*&^ me and tell me the diamonds came from the same lot as the ones I purchased, then.... he finally admit that he went downstairs and simply purchased the ring I had modeled MY ring after from another vendor! ( which was about 1200 bucks ) keeping the several thousand dollars I had given him for the other loose diamonds and to make my design.
The argument was so bad because I kept catching him in lies that he finally told me to F off , grabbed the ring off the counter that I had paid for, put it in his pocket and then called security on me to have me escorted out! So, now he had my money and the ring! He was going to keep both and have me removed!
When I told security what had happened, they instructed him to give me back the ring, which he threw back at me. Ultimately, to keep from being arrested and stripped of his crudentials, Michael ended up making the ring I had ordered with what he says are the loose diamonds I had purchased but who really knows. At least they weren't tapered and it looked decent enough.
Listen, he sticks a pretty, trustworthy looking girl downstairs in the pit to gain your trust and once she passes you off to him your in the hands of an evil thief. Do not trust him. He verbally abuses and degrades women and rips off honest, hard working people. If you are a man, do not send your girl, mother or sister alone with him and more-over, don't give your hard earned cash to a liar and a thief.
I posted this same review on YELP and he wrote a rebuttal saying that I came down and stole a ring that was on the counter, had the police called on me and had me arrested. He rips off so many people, he has no idea what or who he is talking about! He says he will post the video and police report to prove his side of the story.... I hope he does post the video because whoever views it will see that it is not me and it will prove he is trying to clear his name by insinuating that I am someone else.
People, you have thousands of choices when purchasing jewelry, you don't need to go to someone who is a liar, a thief and an overall bad person. PLEASE post the video, I'd love to see it because you will find that I am not on it...... I was alone when I was there first of all and second of all, I am more than happy to prove the video he speaks of ( if there really is one ) would be of someone other than me.
What color hair do I have? What color eyes do I have? What is my native language? How tall am I? What was I wearing? What was the girl wearing when she brought me upstairs? What distinctive quality do I have that is hard to miss when looking at me?
I clearly say that I was looking for a ring for my husband in the beginning of the review and he is going on about some guy stealing from him! What a joke!
HE IS A THIEF AND A LIAR. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE OR YOU WILL BE SORRY! Everything he posts from here on out will be a lie for the sake of damage control.
DON'T BE A SUCKER!
