One afternoon, my girlfriend and I passed through a jewelry shop. There wasn’t any people there at the moment. Suddenly, my girlfriend just say, darling, let’s go see diamond. I never say yes, most probably I didn’t have chane or the authority to say so. So… I was dragged into the shop.
Below is a text recording of my girlfriend (G) and a salesperson at a local jewelry shop who I would like to call him, Mr. Jeweler (J).
G : Sir, I would like to see some diamonds, please let me see diamonds that only have certificates.
J : Ma’am, all diamonds here have certificate, what kind of diamonds do you want?
G : Ok, then please give me anything that is below D to F (I thought that my girlfriend is so good that she never requested anything from A to C, she must be trying to save money for me), preferably 1carat (wow, just 1carat? It must be very cheap, I always watched reality shows that give away diamonds which has higher carat)
after awhile J brought a small tray of diamond
J : Ma’am, here are some of the high quality diamonds here and here are the certificates.
G : Wow, really, darling you see, this diamond is so nice, you see it is the highest quality, D grade, colorless.
Me : Yes dear, it is very nice and it is colorless.
(Huh? I thought A is the highest grade, I know always get D grades for my result, are you trying to make fun of me? Wait, do you think that I’m stupid? Of course diamonds are colorless, they are transparent, and has the highest don’t know what index according to physics)
J : Ma’am, please allow me to help you to compare between these 2 D grade and F grade diamond.
G : Wow… Darling, Darling!!! Can you see the difference between this 2 diamonds, one is D grade, one is F grade? Can you see that D grade looks better and more shiny?
Me : Yes dear, D is higher than F, I know… of course D grade is better. (seriously I couldn’t see any different)
Me : Sir, I will buy this, how much is it?
J : This diamond will be $4829 sir, I will give you a special discount……
Me : Nevermind, I think I will look around for better diamond and I will get back to you soon.
J : Certainly, thank you sir.
(We spent around 1hour in the shop, looking through stones that I couldn’t even afford, silly. It seems that I do not know anything about diamond, how bout you? It is really very important when it comes to design your own engagement ring, I think we should learn the art of diamond too)
