Flashback to a time when OP, a diamond specialist, had a lady visit his shop. The lady was carrying an engagement ring, not bought from OP’s shop, that needed cleaning and polishing.
The Process Unveiled
OP communicated to the lady that the cleaning process would require a high-pressure steam cleaner.
The lady agreed, and so OP took the ring to the back for the cleaning session.
A Spectacular Transformation
When OP returned with the now sparkling ring, the woman was visibly taken aback. She hadn’t seen her ring gleam like that in quite some time.
The Inspector, Inspecting
She requested a jeweler’s loupe, prepared to inspect her diamond. However, her inability to correctly use the loupe was evident.
The Bombshell Accusation
Without warning, she exclaimed, “You switched my diamond!”
OP, startled, needed her to repeat the claim. The woman insisted on speaking to a higher authority.
Unraveling the Reality
In an attempt to reason with her, OP began explaining the complex process of diamond switching.
Her unfaltering claim, however, forced him to delve into greater detail.
Behind the Scenes of Diamond Switching
Firstly, OP would need to find an identical diamond, which is a challenging task in itself.
Next, the head of her diamond ring would have to be changed to accommodate a different sized stone.
The Torch and Rhodium Bath
This head changing process would require a jeweler’s torch, a precise skill, and time.
Then, the ring would have to be cleansed perfectly before it could be dipped into rhodium, a precious and expensive element.
The True Cost of Rhodium
The price of rhodium, as OP pointed out, was over $20,000 per ounce.
Contaminating a batch of rhodium on her ring for a meager profit was out of the question.
An Eye-Opening Revelation
He urged her to take her ring back to the original vendor for confirmation.
He also asked that she never return for his services due to her false accusations.
An Apology Rings
Unexpectedly, the woman’s husband called later.
Having heard the entire story, he apologized and confirmed it was indeed her diamond all along.
In the end, a hefty misunderstanding got corrected, giving the customer a valuable lesson – never accuse professionals without proper knowledge!
