…is the advertisement that one of our local jewelry stores is currently running (not sure if it’s from Tacori or not). How ridiculous is that? I know they’re a business and just trying to make as much money as possible but it kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Claiming that women who rock a Tacori are more loved than the rest of us is absolute craziness.
If you ask me, it’s a terrible marketing ploy. I’m sure the rings are lovely (never seen one in person) but anyone who wants one/wants to give one based on this advertisement, needs to work a bit on their relationship (and themselves, for that matter). A ring shouldn’t define how much someone is loved. You can’t put a price tag or a carat weight on something like that.

@UpstateCait: I’m marching straight home to tell DH he needs to buy me a Tacori or I’m leaving!
Silly marketing ploys *rolls eyes*

WOW. Don’t get me wrong, Tacori rings are GORGEOUS, but that type of message in an advertisement is not tasteful at ALL.

I think the worst marketing for rings is the “diamonds live here” commercial for, I think, Kays. YIKES. I want to slap the designer saying it every time.

LOL. I think the marketing scheme is working! It’s not so much *what* they say, but how much they remain in your head and get a reaction. For every one who may not have heard of them, they may be curious as to what these damn rings look like to make such a claim. Or to have someone talk about it and spread their name. They wont sell based on what they say, but it sure gets the name remembered and out there.

Wow totally agree. He could have given me a band with no diamond and I would be just as happy. It’s not about the size Or the ring, but the meaning. Sad that we live in such a materialistic world.

“Tacori- if you get her anything less, your balls will fall off.”

If the size of an engagement ring (or the brand, in this case) were related to how much a man loves you, Kim Kardashian would still be married. 😛

Ah, but see? Even negative press is still press. We’re here talking about it, aren’t we? So in essence it was a successful marketing campaign even though it makes me want to claw my eyes out.

It’s just advertising and they have accomplished their goal- you are remembering the brand name. There are lots of similar sayings- “for those who care to give the very best”
Stella Artois used this one- Reassuringly expensive

Mysterious NY jewelry store, may I direct your attention to the extended finger directly to the right of my non-brand name bedecked ring finger.
