[Resolved] World of Jewellery / Switched diamond with fake
I took my girlfriend's Cartier diamond ring there for cleaning and polishing. After I got it back and paid an expensive amount, I visited another jeweler who told me that the rock was fake. I had another jeweler look at it and I was told the same thing, that the rock was fake. I went back and asked to speak to the owner or manager or anyone who would take responsibility. A guy introduced himself as Shahram Fazelipour, his knowledge of diamonds was rudimentary. I told him that my diamond had been switched with a fake one. He denied it as was expected.
I found out that this guy is a Mashaadi, that is from Mashhad, a small place in Iran. His clothing shows it. His English is weak, he is clearly uneducated and has no self-esteem. I also found out that his father, Hassan Fazelipour, is a poor jewellery worker in Iran who hangs around reputable people hoping to make a dollar off them.
My advise to you: do not go to this guy, he is a thief. He WILL switch your stone with a fake.
