Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I bought a diamond engagement ring from Jamesallen. Two months after I purchased it, i had it appraised and it turned out a Clarity-Enhanced Diamond with fracture filling. It was really disappointing as I had trusted this company. I wanted to return it but I could not because jamesallen said it was too late and they blamed the diamond manufacturer. They even threatened me with their lawyer if I went public with my story.

This is Fraud because they didn't disclose that it was clarity enhanced. Reputable jewelry stores always disclose that treatments were made to the diamonds they sell, but this company is not reputable. A clarity enhanced diamond should not be the same price as a natural one. A lawyer told me what they did was ilegal, fraudulent misrepresentation, breach of warranty, negligent misrepresentation, fraud. What they did was wrong and illegal. I cannot believe they get away with doing this to people. Somebody should investigate them. A total rip off.

Jamesallen is an AWFUL company, and RIPPED ME OFF.

AUTHOR: James Allen Schultz - (U.S.A.)

Hello. My name is James Schultz and I am the President of I would like to address the comments by 'John in Chicago'.
