March 20, 2018, I strolled into ROMA Jewelry store. I was approached by a salesman named Gabriel which was a Mgr.
of this store. After being highly pressured to make a purchase, he sold me a lab created sapphire ring which was guaranteed to be a Tanzanite setting, on a sterling silver band. The original price was $1200.00 but he kept coming down on price to $600.00. I was not totally interested so he called another Mgr.
over to convince me I was getting a great deal. HIGH PRESSURE, HIGH PRESSURE from these disloyal, crooked, cheaters. They stand there and lie, lie, lie. Well, the ring we were discussing had another gem setting in it.
Gabriel told me he would put the finest, dark blue, beautiful Tanzanite setting in this particular ring. It was suppose to be sterling silver with authentic diamond chips. He told me to go do other shopping on the island and it would be ready for me to pick up in an hour. When I returned to pick up my ring, I was so disappointed in the color, cheap looking.
He said with other salesmen/women that it was so beautiful. I disagreed and I had to ask Gabriel for a receipt he reluctantly slopped one out. He knew my ship would be leaving in a short time. Gabriel told me I couldn't return it because I didn't spend $1000.00.
As soon as I arrived home, I had the ring appraised, and the $70.00 cost of the appraisal came back stating it was a lab created sapphire on a silver band worth $75.00. WHY do these people cheat the Americans like they do. They need to be thrown in jail to be such scammers and out of business. With the name of Gabriel you would think he would be a nice decent angel with his sales.
Also, Gabriel kept flashing a large, thick rolled amount of money bills to me that he had in his pocket. He told me he had a new expensive car around the corner. I filed a grievance with my bank, Bank of America and I received a letter in my computer that my claim was denied and for me to work it out with the merchant. So my bank doesn't protect me either.
What's a person to do with such businesses you trust and they don't care about their customers at all. END OF STORY: I lost $600.00 with an ugly dime store ring.
