Upon hearing this, Brad immediately shouted at Hailey, “My sister doesn’t want something that you’ve used before. Sit down!”
Jordan felt rather embarrassed on the stage too.
“Haha, the groom’s ex-wife is quite generous. She’s giving him an out. Otherwise, Miss Lauren Howard won’t even have a decent piece of jewelry.”
“Yes, the rules of many wealthy families in DC are that the groom has to be the one to get the jewelry for his bride.”
How could Jordan not know that Hailey was deliberately trying to make him and Lauren look bad? It was clear she was jealous and she still wanted to be with Jordan!
Jordan said coldly, “No, keep the necklace for yourself!”
Afterward, Jordan asked Salvatore who was on the stage. “Salvatore, where’s that bag that I left in the hotel and asked you to take previously?”
In response, Salvatore piped up, “Are you referring to the plastic bag from Target? I left it in the trunk of my car and it’s in the parking lot of the hotel.”
“Okay, go bring that bag over here. It contains the gift that I brought for Lauren.”
Salvatore said while scurrying over.
However, at this moment, all the guests started giggling.
“The groom’s gift for Miss Howard is actually in a Target bag?”
“Haha, is the gift from Target? Did he buy her socks that cost 10 bucks a pair?”
It seemed that everyone despised Jordan and belittled him, judging from the way the live-in husband was being humiliated by everyone at his wedding!
Jordan did not say anything and waited quietly for Salvatore. Soon, Salvatore came over with the Target plastic bag.
Jordan was just about to reach out to pick it up when his mother-in-law, Marissa, beat him to it. Snatching the bag, Marissa flew into a rage.
“You disgraceful son-in-law! If you’re too poor to give my daughter any gifts, you can choose not to give her anything. Lauren will be elegant and beautiful even if she doesn’t wear any jewelry! But I will never allow you to give my daughter these things that are going to degrade her!”
As he said that, she tossed the plastic bag far, far away.
Jordan suddenly panicked and got off the stage. He then leaped over to catch the Target bag.
Marissa was even angrier. “How disgraceful! You even leaped onto the ground in front of the guests for a stupid bag! Oh God, what sins have I committed in my last life to have my daughter marry such a man!?”
The guests roared in laughter.
‘Must he go all out to catch a lousy bag from Target?’
‘He doesn’t even care about his image as a groom.’
Lauren, on the other hand, couldn’t bear to watch anymore.
Instead, she denounced Marissa, “Mom, how can you do this? Jordan is my husband. Even if he gives me something that costs ten dollars, I’ll like them too. You’re being too rude!”
“You… you silly girl. Don’t you even feel embarrassed? You only care about what you like. Have you ever spared a thought for the Howards’ pride?” Marissa lectured Lauren.
At this moment, Jordan had already picked up the Target plastic bag and walked over.
“Lauren, here is a necklace for you.”
As he said that, he took out a very exquisite box from the bag, and the moment everyone saw it, they felt that something was amiss.
The packaging of the box was obviously of superior quality and it definitely wasn’t something that could be bought at Target!
Jordan humphed coldly. Those stuck-up snobs obviously didn’t know that it was the most expensive necklace in the world!
It was the ‘A Heritage In Bloom’ necklace that Jamie had found in the safe of Jamie’s suburban house previously!
Taking extra care, Jordan slowly opened the box and the moment the necklace was revealed, countless people felt that they were blind!
“Oh my God! What is this thing!?!”
“Ah, I’m blinded! This color and vibrancy are driving me mad!”
Hailey and Marissa were both dumbfounded!
Picking up the necklace, Jordan showed it to Marissa.
“Mom, this necklace is named ‘A Heritage In Bloom’ and is made from a 507-carat, pure Type lla ‘Cullinan Heritage’ diamond, which was cut from its ore. The designer has incorporated many oriental elements in it, creating this exquisite design. May I put this necklace on for your daughter?
“Ah, I forgot to mention that this necklace is worth 200 million dollars.”
Everyone was flabbergasted the moment he said that!
“200 million dollars! Oh my god, 200 million dollars for a necklace!?! Is this a real existence?”
“How is he a live-in husband? He’s much richer than his bride!”
Marissa was stunned too. ‘Weren’t Jordan’s assets and valuables frozen? What’s up with this necklace?’
“Could this be a replica? It’s the most expensive necklace in the world and it’s priceless. You may not be able to buy it even if you can afford it. If you give my daughter a counterfeit necklace, it will be a disgrace to the Howards!”
Jordan humphed coldly and said, “For all those present, does anyone here know how to appraise and authenticate treasures?”
At this moment, a middle-aged man raised his hand, stood up, and came over to Marissa.
He said respectfully, “Mrs. Howard, I am the president of Vans Jewelry and a professional gemstone appraiser. I’ve been in this business for forty years. I believe that I can help you.”
Marissa knew that there were hidden experts among the guests so she frantically smiled and said, “I’ll have to trouble you then.”
Jordan gave the necklace to the middle-aged man who kept singing praises about it after checking it carefully.
“What a finely crafted piece. These diamonds and jades are definitely not counterfeit! 1, 2, 3…26, 27. The necklace is recombinable through its strings. There are indeed 27 ways to wear it!
“Mrs. Howard, this necklace is, indeed, the most expensive necklace in the world and it’s worth 200 million dollars!”
Marissa was a bit stunned. She initially wanted to humiliate Jordan at the wedding. She wanted to let everyone present know that Jordan was a live-in husband who sponged off her daughter. However, who would have thought that Jordan would give her daughter a necklace worth 200 million dollars!?!
Lauren was stunned too. “Jordan…”
Jordan smiled, took the necklace, and then personally put it on Lauren’s neck.
The moment it was completed, everyone started applauding!
“How compatible! Only someone as noble as Miss Howard would be worthy of the world’s most expensive necklace!”
“Yes, a beauty and an exquisite necklace. What a perfect match.”
At this moment, Hailey was standing like a fool, holding the rose gold necklace worth a lot less than 200 million dollars.

She was biting her lip, filled with jealousy!
“Damn it! Jordan you bastard, how am I worse than Lauren?”
“You’re giving her a necklace worth 200 million dollars and you gave me a necklace worth a few hundred thousand dollars? You’re making me seem so cheap! This necklace shouldn’t belong to Lauren!”
In fact, Jordan felt the same inside.
‘This necklace should belong to Victoria…’
