"Gem of A Case" Goes To Trial

In a case of mistaken value, Thomas DePrince, a retired antiques and jewelry dealer, is fighting to keep his diamond. Starboard Cruise Services mistakenly gave a $235,000 price tag for a 20.64-carat emerald cut diamond, which should have sold for more than $4.8 million, with each carat valued at the list price. The retailer wishes to call it a mistake and forget about it, while DePrince is saying that a deal is a deal. Miami-Dade Circuit Court will decide.
