Quarterly salesat the U.S. warehouse-club retailer got a boost from a customer who made a “significant diamond ring purchase, in the $400,000 range,” Costco Wholesale Corp. Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti told analysts Thursday on a conference call.
He didn’t provide more details, but based on the company’s website, the item may have been the “Round Brilliant 10.03 carat VS1 Clarity, I Color Diamond Platinum Solitaire Ring” that can be yours for $419,999.99.
Costco...of all places. Really? First of all, buying an online ring? Dumb. Half the fun is going into the jeweler in person to pick it out! (Is that right? I've never been ring shopping, I'm going solely off of what movies have shown me).
"Jane, that ring is beautiful! Where did he get it?!"
"Thaaaaanks, he just picked it up online!"
Doesn't sound right, does it?
Secondly, Costco is bulk city. It's a magical place in which if you HAD 400K to spend, you could fill your home, your neighbor's home and your ex-wife's house with several years worth of food and furniture. Absolutely the worst way to spend four hundred THOUSAND dollars at a superstore. Never thought I'd ever have to type that sentence but congratulations, guy. You made it happen. What a waste. - @Traceahamilton
