She loves her rings, no matter their cost.


A woman in Tennessee says that although a store worker called her engagement jewelry “pathetic,” she couldn’t be happier with the rings.

And Pandora has since apologized to the couple, the Daily Mail reports.

Ariel McRae explained in a Facebook post — one that went insanely viral, racking up more than 56,000 shares — that she and her now-husband didn’t have much money but decided to get married anyway after two years of dating.

The groom “scraped up just enough money to buy me two matching rings from Pandora,” she wrote. The set cost $130.

“Sterling silver and CZ to be exact,” she wrote. “That’s what sits on my ring finger, and I am so in love with them.”

A worker at the store wasn’t as impressed.

McRae explained: “While we were purchasing my rings however, another lady that was working there came over to help the lady selling them to us. She said, ‘Y’all can you believe that some men get these as engagement rings? How pathetic.’”

She wrote that he held her tongue and proceeded with the purchase, although “I watched my now husband’s face fall.”

She said to herself, “It isn’t the ring that matters, it is the love that goes into buying one that matters.”

The Daily Mail quoted McRae, 22, saying: “Pandora has reached out to me and offered me their sincerest apologies and I accepted.”

Even when asked by Pandora, McRae refused to reveal the specific store where the incident occurred or the name of the employee.

“My intention with this post was never to get anyone fired,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.

She added: “I believe this post going viral is wake up call enough for her.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
