Shady business practices. Left my diamonds (a 1 karet and 2 smaller stones) to be set in a new ring setting. When asked what my budget was, I said $500. Mr. DeHerrera created a ring and told me it would be $1800. The ring was created without any agreement on my part to spend so much money. I said I'll need some time to determine what my budget would allow. He said if I decided against it, no worries, he could put the setting in the showcase (w/out the stones). Meanwhile, he had my $500 and my diamonds. Two months later it was clear I could not afford the 1,800, and I requested my stones be returned. He refuses to return my $500, refuses to return my diamonds (worth $3,000 or more), and says my only option is to make payments or sell them on consignment. I've registered a complaint with authorities.
