An eagle-eyed reader sent me a tip today...Costco has plagiarized my ring!! The bulk warehouse chain Costco is offering a 6.77 carat diamond ring for only $1,000,000.00.
You can see "their" ring here, and below:
And for comparison, my ring:
"I know, I know," I said to myself, "But my ring is gigantic, and so is theirs!!!"
Costco has this to say about their rings:
Costco makes purchasing the highest quality diamonds easy by offering only the industry's highest quality diamonds at the lowest possible price. Our long-standing relationship with our suppliers guarantees we get the best selection at the best value. Costco's experienced buying team works with our suppliers evaluating and hand-selecting each diamond for its quality and brilliance. Our team of Graduate Gemologists then inspects every diamond to ensure it meets the strictest quality standards in the industry in cut, color, clarity, and craftsmanship. You can be confident your purchase is as special to us as it is to you.Clearly, they are only able to offer the lowest possible price because THEY STEAL THEIR DESIGNS!!!
This saddens my very heart and soul because Costco was formerly my favourite place to purchase toilet paper. However, I hope that you will all join me in boycotting Costco over this incident, until they offer me a full apology, preferably accompanied by one of their delicious cakes with buttercream icing.
