    Is there such a phrase: "Trust it/me or not,...."

    Hi everyone,

    Is "Trust it/me or not,..." a set phrase in English? For example, is it okay to say "Trust me /it or not, she is wearing the most expensive diamond in the world!"

    I have googled this phrase, but I didn't get any proper example sentences.

    It is usually "Trust me".

    Further to Mike's answer, I have never heard "Trust it or not...". The normal expression is "Believe it or not...".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
