He Paid $13 for $13,000 Cartier Earrings, and Then the Jeweler Noticed

·1 min

Rogelio Villarreal stumbled upon an ad for Cartier on his Instagram feed. Intrigued, he explored the luxury items listed on the website, including a pair of diamond-studded rose-gold earrings priced at a remarkably low cost. Believing it to be a bargain, he bought two pairs. However, the price was later corrected on the Cartier website. This sparked a lengthy dispute between Villarreal and the brand, garnering attention from social media users and even a Mexican senator. Cartier made several attempts to cancel the order, claiming unavailability.
