I met an Australian woman who was surprised to discover she had bought some very expensive diamonds on an Alaskan cruise.
“Do you remember what you did last night?” her friend asked her.
“You bought those diamond earrings.”
“From the diamond salesman we met on the ship. You were pretty drunk and you started bargaining with him,” her friends said.
“Look in your pocket.”
The woman, wearing the same jacket as the night before, reached into her pocket to find a pair of spectacular, sparkly, blinding diamond earrings.
“Oh my god, my husband will kill me!” she shrieked. Then she paused…. “Did I at least get a good price?”
Moral of the story: Some luxury cruise ships have private diamond showrooms and diamond parties hosted by charming salesmen. Free champagne is served. You’ve been warned!
