by Llclayton3 » Sep 7, 2019 I am going thru a divorce with a man who I was with for 10 years, and found out that he is a pathological liar, sociopath, and basically just a really good con artist.. When he proposed, it was with what he told me was a 3 karat diamond. Go figure, it’s not a diamond. We wouldn’t be able to afford that anyway, but his best friend was dying of cancer, and he told me his BF paid for half of it because he wanted me to have something nice. Made sense, and why would someone make that up? Well, I recently found an email from some place called “asha diamonds” (tried to go to the website, and whattya know, it’s been taken down!) with his receipt for a little over $2000. In the last week or 2, I decided I might as well try to sell some of the other jewelry he’d gotten me over the years, even tho I already knew without even checking that it was all almost definitely fake, but I wanted to look up what it was worth either way so I’d know how much to sell it for. I have a David Yurman set of the standard cable quatrefoil silver and gold earrings, and matching lariat necklace. I knew those were knock offs because there are no stampings of any kind, and when he gave them to me, he didn’t present them as David Yurman (or any designer, for that matter), didn’t tell me they were expensive, etc. If they were real, or if he was trying to pass them off as real, he would’ve made a big deal about it, I’m assuming he just didn’t know they were anything special. So, I go to google to try and look up the necklace to see what even a knock off would be worth, and I cannot find this same style necklace ANYWHERE. As far as I can see, he never even made the quatrefoil lariat in this style, with both ends of the chain going thru a sliding pendant. He’s got other slide lariats that do, but not the cable quatrefoil. So I’m scratching my head, because I know in my heart that this is not real, but I can’t even find a similar knock off. It’s actually surprisingly really good quality, especially for a knock off. If it weren’t for the lack of stampings, I would think it was real. Another piece he gave me was a tri toned silver knot lariat, I know I’ve seen longer versions of this, but again, I cannot find anything even close to it anywhere online, so I’m not even sure what it would be a knock of off. My friend who’s somewhat of an expert on metals says that the jump ring is titanium, and the black chain is most likely titanium, and he’s about to test the extension chain, but it’s most likely silver, 2 of the chains are probably steel, and the other 2, he’s not sure. It’s not aluminum, he thinks silver or gold. If anyone can help identify or give me ANY answers of any kind, it would be GREATLY appreciated. I have spent countless hours googling the Hell out of these, and have nothing.
