Am I wrong , stupid or something?

Hello, everyone, I am getting engaged, the day before yesterday I booked a diamond and left deposit in a store. Yesterday I received a call from the seller, he told me the diamond I booked has been sold, but he would like to provide me with another a little more expensive and better one as the same price. I accepted his offer. When I told my GF this, She said I was a simple soul and unsophisticated. She means they should pay for double deposit or at least give us additional discount if we stick to buying the diamond I booked and we have no idea if they would to do what they told me. But, I don't think we can get double deposit even if sue them. they really make a mistake, but they do something to make up. And we lose nothing(Okay,maybe additional discount), it's not a good idea to fall out once a problem comes up. However, my GF insists I am too easy to deal with. What do you think? my friends.

Well, the damage has been done (or is there really?) Granting that the seller made a mistake by selling your booked gem, the mere fact that h informs you and considered of giving you a better one at the same price as replacement, is already a good bargain. Nothing has lost, only you gained a better gem. Now, if your GF worries too much if the said diamond is better than the one you booked, then why don't you two go to the store and check it out. Check the cut and the quality if it is really better than the previous one. This is the only way to settle this. Hush... never mind your girl. She is just too concern with the diamond, besides, she is the one who is going to wear it. She just one to make sure it is perfect. P.S. if you are not satisfied with the replacement, then better inform the seller so they can come up with a better offer that both them and you can compromise. Good luck and congratulations.:)

You are so kind, eurekafemme, thank you for your advice. We plan to get expert examination after getting the ring back. There are only a small parts of samples for display in their store, most of diamond are in their processing factory. I picked a stone and a ring out from the list they showed me, then the factory will process a diamond ring for me. That is their business methods and why I need to book. So the stone is unavailable to see right now.

Well, from one point of view your GF is right. The seller broke his promise, so he must serve a penalty by giving you discount or something. So if you would go and demand a discount, you wouldn't be wrong on that. From the other side, nothing bad happened, you didn't lose any money and I assume you still got a nice diamond for your GF. So I think you can't be blamed for the choice you made, although there were other good options too. Don't worry about it too much.

i won't say that you are wrong or stupid... but i think that you are just being too nice and naive person... i won't just receive the offer from the seller if i were in your position and i will demand to have my deposit reimbursed plus compensation for my inconvenience... we are talking about an engagement diamond here and it is not a cheap stuff... i won't make a business with such an unprofessional shop like that... take care and have a nice day...

hi,i don't want to comment on this whole episode,but one thing i can say based on your girl friend response that she is perfect match for you.Because it should be correct combination when atleast one of the partners should be stubborn and hard in some incidents which are present in your GF...All the best and have a nice time.

I think that they did not keep their words and now they want to pour some solution on the mistake they have done. It is nothing wrong for you to look up for their other offer. You can ask the reason for the breakage of your previous contract with them. If they satisfy you with the reason they give then go for their other offer. Your girl friend is different matter and I will say that she is little right with her words but don't worry it can happen to anyone. It is not a big deal to get such situations in our day to day life. I wish you good luck.

From your tone of voice, you sounds like you have some disgruntle against your girlfriend's complaint, isn't it? Well, a lot of women might nagging about a small detail, you just let her be. Don't be bother with it. If she say you are a simple soul, let her be the winner. She is the sophisticated one then.
