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.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
