A $8K diamond engagement ring is a good investment for a young man who has just graduated from college, according to his new high school graduation ceremony.

But when the jeweler’s assistant asks if the young man can pay $8k for a piece of jewelry, he tells her no.

“The diamonds are not worth that much,” he tells the assistant.

“Why are you making me pay $2,000 for a diamond that’s worth $8.00?”

The assistant says she can pay him $2k for the same piece of diamond.

The young man agrees, and the assistant says, “I’m sorry, I just don’t understand why you’re making me do this.”
