Charli D’Amelio took birthday gifts to an all-new level as she left her sister Dixie stunned with an extraordinary $30,000 present on her special day.

The D’Amelio sisters have exploded in popularity over the past few months due to their social media efforts across TikTok and other platforms. Charli boasts nearly 6.5 million subscribers on YouTube alone after just eight months and 11 uploads.

Her latest video is sure to turn heads as per usual. In large part, due to the extraordinary lengths the internet celebrity went to for her sister’s birthday. Rather than buying a typical gift off of local store shelves, she tasked popular Instagram star Benjamin Kickz with a globetrotting task.

The journey saw him travel to Paris to hunt down an extremely rare pair of sneakers. Not only that, but they had to be in one of the hardest sizes to find as well.

“She wants to get her sister a pair of Jordan 1 Dior’s in a size six,” he explained. This dual-branded release was limited to just 8,500 pairs at its time of arrival in July.

As with any rare sneaker, prices tend to be more reasonable for common sizes in the middle of the pack. It’s with larger or smaller sizes that the cost ramps up to an often-extreme amount.

At the time of writing, a US 10 can be picked up for under $10,000. However, a US 14 could run you closer to $50,000 due to how few pairs actually exist in this size. Dixie’s shoe size comes in at a US 6 so they had their work cut out for them trying to acquire the rare item.

They were near-impossible to track down in time, with Kickz even offering far more lucrative trades to others in the US. No one was willing to part ways with the size 6 sneakers, even for tens of thousands of dollars.

Kickz couldn’t grab a single pair in the United States but quickly hopped on a flight to Paris. He was able to track them down and bring them back to Charli before her sister’s birthday. “I’ve never had a pair of shoes like that where I’m… nervous about them,” she said upon seeing them for the first time.

When it came time to reveal the rare gift, Dixie was shocked by a fake surprise at first. The family tricked her with an oversized ribbon on a sports car outside.

But, when she walked back into their house, the Dior x Air Jordan’s were waiting for her on the table.

TikTok user ‘jezkif,’ a.k.a. ‘Diamond Tester Kid,’ has gone viral after making a several part series in which he goes around to teachers in his school, testing their supposedly real diamond rings, and often delivering some less than desirable news.

Following TikTok’s rise to mainstream popularity after its switch over from musical.ly, it has become a hub for viral content. With its extraordinary number of bizarre filters, viral sounds, and addictive trends, just about everyone has given the app a go.

The content that thrives the best on TikTok, however, is certainly weird and wonderful. Some users even have gained followers in the millions by making fake Tom Holland accounts, confusing droves of fans.

But student ‘jezkif’ has achieved viral fame in the most unexpected way possible – by taking a diamond tester around his school, shedding some light on his teachers’ supposedly very expensive rings, with hilarious results.

TikToker goes viral for hilarious diamond reveals

In his first video of the series (which has now garnered 880,000 likes and over 5 million views), he approaches his teacher and asks, “You got a wedding ring right?” and “Do you think it’s real?”

The teacher replies with a confident, “Of course!” so jezkif quickly sets about testing the ring in question. “It’s real right?” she asks hopefully, but the monitor revealed the stone was in fact fake, leaving the teacher stunned.

Each video produced a new brilliant reaction from the teachers, initially being excited at the prospect of engaging with their student’s curiosity, and then immediately regretting it once the diamond detector revealed some unexpected results.

Tweets showcasing the hilarious work of the Diamond Tester Kid have also gone viral, with likes in the tens of thousands. One user said, “Yo this kid goes around testing his teacher’s wedding rings & I’m screaming, because most of them are fake.”

It’s safe to say that jexif’s videos has given millions of TikTok users a good chuckle, and no doubt has many eyeing up their own rings they previously thought to be real.
