Wow.. $15,000 for a jade bracelet...

Why would you buy something that you dont know how to determine if its real/fake or worth the price???

Wow, these people tried to scam my grandma 2 weeks ago in Chinatown. She said she almost fell for it but suspected it to be fishy. Although my grandma was lucky to have ducked into a pharmacy and they lost sight of her, if she continued walking on the street I'm sure she would've been followed and harassed.

Feel bad for the victim, hate scammers, not shitting on other people's culture, but... Magical bracelet with healing powers...

Go buy a Q-Ray! It will also take strokes off your golf game.

The $ amounts Chinese are willing to pay for jade boggles my mind. A $300 bracelet looks the same to me as a $5k one. Though westerners are just as crazy about diamonds, mostly just a status thing I suppose?

No shit.

To me diamonds that people wear serve no useful purpose, so they're pretty worthless to me.

Diamonds don't have magical healing properties and won't curse you if you don't buy them.

diamonds are completely worthless to me unless they are on a saw blade or drill. Fuck paying for a shiny rock.

I guess it's true, but not very much. I mean, if you came up to me with a sack of diamonds for 10 bucks, I'd buy it casue I know someone else would pay more even though it's worthless.

The lesson here is to avoid buying jade off the street and buy used engagement ring.

Give me a break...

If you buy a 15k diamond odds are the worse you can do is lose MAYBE a 1/4 of its value on resale

No one with half a brain is buying a 15k jade bracelet for 10k on resale, it has no actual worth, this idiot was fleeced.

Anyone want to buy my base set foil Charizard TCG card?
I heard it was worth like $300...


Diamonds are worth a lot only because people would pay a lot for it.
