The jewelry store I went to to get my wedding band treated me nicely. I bought it myself, (a family business, father, mother, sister, brother etc…), maybe that makes a difference? I don’t like the “chain” stores.

Remember her name.  If you buy it, don’t do it through her.

i bought myself a right hand ring, and i went through the same thing! i found that when i went shopping with my mom, it helped a lot. probably because they thought she had the money to buy it, even though i was the one purchasing it for myself to celebrate an internship. 🙂

Ugh, that sucks. : (

I would suggest straight-up telling her (to her face) that YOU will be paying the the ring, and that YOU deserve service.

Did you catch her name? If so, when you go to pick up/purchase the ring WITH your bf, you could call ahead of time and specifically state that the sales clerk was rude, and you would like to request to be served by another staff member.

Don’t let snobby jewelers ruin your day!
