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.”

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
