The Top Ten

1 Juweliergeschäft (Jeweler store)

German has a word for Jewelery store! - lolingdog9000

Fleisch sounds like flesh, which is another way of saying meat. Flesh is also a weird word! - lolingdog9000

3 Ohrwurm (Ear worm)

It sounds similar, but funnier in German! - lolingdog9000

4 Schmuck (Jewelry)
5 Picobello (Flawless)

This word sounds like an Italian word to me, maybe Germans "imported" it. This is just my impression (I don't know if the word is Italian or not). - Metal_Treasure

I got this word from a website. But I can assure you, it is not Italian! - lolingdog9000
