I purchased a diamond ring on Bidz.com that was stated as being eye clean. The pictures on their website are not at all the same as the actual products they actually ship, as when the product arrived it was very clear that this diamond was NOT eye clean. It seems like they pretend to be sending you legitimate high quality Italian made designer jewelry and instead you get a trinket that was made in China, was clearly not the same product that was in the product picture. So they both show you a fake product picture and then also lie in the product description! Also there was a $15 extra shipping and handling c harge that they do not tell you about until after you have already placed your order. I would be ok with something like that, but not if the product they ship is a cheap knockoff!
Then when you contact Bidz.com and ask them to refund your purchase they charge an expensive restocking fee. So you $100 for what looks like an expensive peace of jewelry, you get a crappy piece of jewelry worth probably $5 and then when you get a refund you still have to pay $15 for restocking! I'd also like to say that I still haven't received my refund check (for some reason they won't simply refund the credit card payment I made) and it has been two months now.
So I have paid Bidz $100 for the jewelry, $15 for shipping and handling, $15 more for restocking, and now I don't have the jewelry or my money back. So now I have $130 less and I don't even have my cheap ring. Bidz is definitely a scam and everybody should avoid doing business with them!
