Appraiser says they’re merely “bad zirconias.”

At least three people – Charlie Sheen among them – have come forward to accuse Donald Trump of giving them fake diamond cufflinks that Trump maintained were the real deal, The New York Post reports. The article quotes Sheen from an appearance he made on “The Graham Norton Show” (video below, but be aware of the graphic language) in which he recalls receiving a wedding gift from Trump while at a restaurant five years ago:

Sheen: “[Trump] says, ‘These are platinum diamond Harry Winston,’ and he pulls off his cufflinks, and he gives them to me.”

Six months later, Sheen took the cufflinks to an appraiser.

“She took [her magnifying] loupe, spent about four seconds and kind of recoiled from it,” Sheen explains. “She says, ‘In their finest moment, this is cheap pewter and bad zirconias.’ And they’re stamped ‘Trump.’”

Trump is alleged to have pulled off the ruse at least two other times, according to the report.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
