IN THIS EPISODE of Jimmy DeGroot’s satirical Gene the Jeweler series, Gene tells a horror story about a diamond he sold to a couple.

When the pair divorce six years later, the woman wishes to sell the ring back.

But by this time, it’s somehow been replaced by a CZ.

It wasn’t Gene’s fault, but the customer sure was mad. As Gene explains, “We got involved legally.”

Yikes.
