Jeweler Claims He Lacks Stones!

7/15/2008 9:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

BlackstarA Hollywood jeweler is suing Harry Winston, the famous jeweler in Bev Hills, claiming H.W. is holding the most valuable sapphire in the world hostage!

In a lawsuit filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Jack Armstrong claims Gabrielle Grobe-Guiton and he own the Black Star Sapphire of Queensland, a 733-carat jewel. He alleges he sent it to Harry Winston on loan, but H.W. refuses to return it.

Armstrong claims he has a prospective purchaser who wants to see the stone but H.W. refuses to produce it for inspection.

Armstrong is suing for $5 million in damages plus another $20 mil in punitive damages. Holy Zales.

TO number 10 and number 5: We're not being RACEist, we are being REAList.. Unless you've ever been in business with a greasy middle eastern slime bucket, you have no right to comment.. Go play in your all white neighborhoods and pretend everything is lovely.. Idiots.

I find that most racists comments stem from jealously..They just show how envious the writer is for their own misfortune and/or lack of knowledge..Anyway if the jewels belong to Mr. Armstrong and Ms. Grobe-Gution then they should get the jewel back..Plain and simple

Oh that's right, you liberal idiots don't believe in the Constitution of the Unites States of America.
