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.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
