The economic recession seems to be the best time for the makers of the Mario pendant. After all doing some business could be the only repair system to work against this debacle. The 4.5” Mario made of 10k gold is done with distinctive overalls & hat, while the total in diamonds measures up to 14.5 cts. Moreover, the seller claims that the “retail” price for such a thing would be $11857, yet has it on sale for “only” $7000. First and foremost, the guy doesen’t even look remotely close to Mario which would lead us to believe that it is unlicensed (note the MR instead of the M on the hat) We would probably ignore all that if the pendant was “cute”, but Alas!! Even hideous seems to be an understatement.
