The ring didn’t stand up to an acid test.

A woman who bought a 10 karat gold wedding band from a Zales store got an unpleasant surprise when she found out the ring wasn’t gold after all, WSPA-TV reports. According to the news station, the woman got a hunch the ring wasn’t gold after she noticed some flaking and discoloration, so she asked a local pawn shop to evaluate it. After the pawn shop performed an acid test, “there was no gold left, the acid ate it completely off the stone,” the manager of the pawn shop says. When the woman asked for her money back, Zales obliged and issued the following statement to the news outlet:

“Integrity is a core value of our company, and the trust of our guests is of the utmost importance to us. As such, we have diligent processes in place to ensure appropriate tracking and security of all guest merchandise brought in for repair or service. In any instance where a guest presents a concern, we work with them directly to ensure a satisfactory resolution reflective of our commitment to each and every guest.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
