Reader Rob sent us a link to a $220,000 diamond ring for sale on Amazon…marked down from only $338,800. Bargain!
Item tags include: “awesome,” “diamonds,” “rock-on,” and “grocery store rendevous.” Wait, what?
This is my favorite of the reviews:
When my girlfriend subtly added this to her wishlist, I have to admit I had my doubts. Not about the marriage — no, I love this woman and WILL make her my wife now that I know she wants me “that way”. No, I had doubts about buying a ring online. I don’t know a lot about diamonds, but it looked a little more “blingy” than the pieces at Sears, which I had been regularly browsing on my breaks since meeting her at Hot Topic. Sure I buy car repair manuals, action figures, knives, and prescription drugs on-line — but never something as precious as jewelry for the finger of my soul-mate. What if it didn’t fit? Would I send her finger to Jeff Bezos? He wouldn’t want that….
Without a credit card of my own, I knew I would have to do things differently and “think outside this box” if I wanted to win her heart and give her the ring of her dreams. Was I sure, really sure, I wanted to do what was necessary to secure $338,800.00 in cash to send to Jeff Bezos in exchange for this ring?
Friends, my doubts were eliminated completely when I saw that the ring of the dreams of the girl of MY dreams was so dramatically discounted thanks to Amazon’s low-low prices! I knew Amazon offered the best prices in town on authentic reproduction movie-set quality knives from films such as Predator II and TV’s Heroes, but when I saw that this ring was normally $338,800.00 and that it was bargain basemented to the rediculously low-low price of $118,800.00 I knew immediately that this was roughly 40%. Plus free shipping!? Watch your mail Jeff Bezos, what a bargain!
I’m not impressed with the free Super Saver shipping—for that much, I want someone to personally drive it out to me from Seattle, nestled on a silk pillow in the backseat of a Town Car.
