This is regarding fraudulent merchandise that was sold to me via Bloomingdales.com. It was sold via a July 1, 2021 purchase through a debit card transaction at TD Bank in the amount of $1,319.48. It was posted to the account on July 5, 2021. The short version of this story is that I thought I had paid Bloomingdales for a $1,319.48 for a Size 10 Mens Blue Sapphire & Diamond Band Ring in 14K White Gold. When I first bought the ring, it was purchased in my usual size, butt it was a tad too small on me, due to the effects of a medical issue at the time. So I had to wait a year or so, before getting it sized. The ring had never been worn and was still brand new in the box. I went to have it sized in November 2022, and the third party jeweler informed me that it wasnt gold at all not even gold filled or gold plated. He said it was stainless steel with little chips of diamonds and sapphires in it. The ring is not genuine in terms of its description, and therefore is a fake, and fraudulent merchandise. Needless to say, the jeweler did not size it for me once we discovered it was a fake. Bloomingdales stated it is out of the ninety day purchase policy and refuses to return the ring, or take any responsibility for the fraud it has committed. If other consumers have experienced any type of similar situation with Bloomingdales (whether jewelry or any other merchandise), please contact your State Attorney Generals Office. I am disseminating this information to inform others - if you have purchased jewelry or any other merchandise theough Bloomingdales, I urge you to authentic todays itzs if it says it is gold, authenticate it upon delivery through a third party jeweler. This incident occurred with Bloomingdales.com in northern New Jersey. If this incident has occurred with one piece of jewelry, chances are it has either happened before and/or is continuing to occur now. It is not my objective to bring negative attention to Bloomingdales. However, I do want there to be an open awareness that this type of situation does indeed occur and exist. Retailers should be accountable.
