Just to let everyone know that I got a response back from walmart about selling me 14kgold diamond earrings for $300.00 that werent real.They told me to get a lawyer.Real american of them isnt it.But after seeing all the post thats been posted here I realize theyre nothing but a cheap sweatshop and I am screwed out of my money.I will talk to my friend thats a lawyer though.Waiting on his call as we speak to give him their #.479-273-4505 is the # if any of you lawyers out there want to call them.So people beware...DONT BUY GOLD from walmart.Its not real.

I wish theyd go out of bussiness but since that wont happen I;ll just go to kmart or targets.They have better deals anyways.

That is so true my husband bought me a gold necklace at Walmart
Paying 170.00 I was running low on cash and took it to a pawn shop
And got embarrassed it stuck to a magnet when it was tested
Due to it is gold mixed with metal (little gold lots of metal) thank
god I was in the alloyed time I returned it

I got a watch from there the salesgirl assured me was real 18k white
gold. But of course when my arm turned green I took it back,
thankfully it was within the allotted time allowed for a return or who
knows what would have happened.

and if you're looking for the markings, they'll be on the ear ring
posts. You might need a loupe to see it.

Personally I do better with my naked eye reading the markings but
that's me.

I use to work at a discount jewelry counter in a low-level department
store, oh about 15 years ago.

I wold recommend having the ear rings taken to a jeweler for
verification. It won't be free though.

And just to let you know... one of the tricks they use to keep the
cost of jewelry down is to use hollow gold.

it's perfectly legal - even with the proper gold markings.

I don't see how this is Wal-mart's fault. It took you a year to figure
it out and therefore there is no proof if the store cheated you. All
we know is that you have a box that you claim the earrings came in.
Maybe your boyfriend bought them online and that's the box they came
in. Judging by your other post, the only proof you have is a box and
it's not that hard to switch boxes.

Sam Walton would be rolling over in his grave! Where is that sarcasm
button again?

What do you mean they're not real? Were the supposed to be
gold-filled but are instead only gold-plated?
