New York has a famous diamond-trading centre, located on 47th street. If you have heard about it and decide to visit the area, be careful never to buy jewelry at the street level of the trading centre. The legitimate trading at wholesale prices takes place only in high security offices.
The vendors on the street level of the trading centre are not registered diamond-dealers, but are crooks meaning to scam you good – and they will.
How to avoid:
Wherever you are buying jewelry, New York or anywhere else; never leave a deposit for any stone unless the seller is reputable, has his own premises and has declared that the deposit is refundable (ask for that in writing).
Make your friends and family aware of this scam by sharing it, using the buttons provided.
