Ummm, what?  I didn’t realize there was an age limit on halo rings.  That salesperson was out of line.  If the halo is what you want, you should absolutely get it.

That was just rude, and it sounds like she was trying to bully you.  I don’t see any reason why a halo isn’t “age-appropriate” for a woman in her 30s.  Jewellery doesn’t generally have an expiration date, as far as I know.  Go to a different jeweller, and leave a review online of that store so that other people know what kind of sales tactics they like to use.

This makes absolutely no sense!!  I am almost 33 and I love my (double) halo ring, and I plan to wear it until I’m old and wrinkly.  I have never before heard that halos are for younger people.  That’s ridiculous!  You’re the one who will be wearing it, hopefully forever, so I say get a ring that YOU love!

That’s absurd!  You can wear whatever you feel like.   Heck, halo rings on each fingers if you wanted to!

What the hell? She sounds like a crazy person. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with wearing a halo ring at any age. Get what you like, and preferably not at a store with such poor and disrespectful customer service.

@BowSister:  Um, that woman was not only rude she’s apparently nuts.  Halo style rings are appropriate for anyone.  Why wouldn’t they be?  How bizzare.

I honestly think you should call and speak to the store manager.  This woman is a terrible representative of their store. 

Oh, and I’m way past 30 and I have a beautiful halo that looks just fine on my finger!

@BowSister:  I have literally never heard of being too old for a halo. A heart shape…maybe (and this is only my person judgey-mcjudgeyness coming out) but a halo? What the…
