If you didn’t know, The RealReal was sued a few months ago by a woman who purchased a diamond ring on t heir website. The issue was, it was listed as 2.10 carat weight but when she received the ring, she had her gemologist (because we all have one of those handy) weighed the ring and it turned out it was only 1.2 carat weight. So of course, the logical thing to do is to sue. No. My first thought when I heard about this lawsuit is one, someone has way too much time on her hands and the second was, if you have ever perused The RealReal’s website, there are thousands upon thousands of items listed daily so the carat weight number was probably transposed. Seriously, who is going to lie about .9 carats?
The thing this woman, Gaby Basmadjian, should have done was to reach out to The Real Real and solve the issue that way.
