DePrince v. Starboard Cruise Services, Inc.
Citation:District Court of Appeal of Florida, 2015. 163 So.3d 586.
Thomas DePrince (Plaintiff) purchased a twenty carat diamond from Starboard Cruise Services, Inc. (Defendant) for a very low sum. Defendant’s onshore supplier had sent it an email stating that two diamonds were available, one 20.64-carat diamond for $235,000 and one 20.73-carat diamond for $245,000. Plaintiff consulted with two expert gemologist friends onboard the ship, who indicated that both diamonds should cost significantly more. Plaintiff ignored their advice and purchased the 20.64-carat diamond the following day. Defendant was later informed that the price quoted to DePrince was the per-carat price for the diamond rather than the total price, which was $4,850,400. Defendant informed plaintiff of the error and reversed the charges on his credit card to refund all monies paid.
