@sarahbabs: Bahaha!!! She was TOTALLY Annie from Bridesmaids! This wasn’t the only awkward remark she made, but this was the one that made us bolt immediately. Fiance liked a titanium ring and she goes “I guess you value a ring more than you value your fingers. Should you get in a tragic accident, they’ll have to cut your finger off because it would be too hard to get a titanium ring off. I’d go with white gold or platinum if you value your fingers.” So. freaking. weird!

what a horrible thing to say. you should tell her manager!

Definitely talk to a manager about everything she said. Especially the “Fine! Don’t wear a wedding band. I guess you’ll just be single forever!” Hopefully you remember her name, but if not I’m sure the date & time & possible description should suffice. If she were my employee, I’d definitely want to know… I wouldn’t want someone like that representing my business. No one’s going to want to buy from a jeweler like that & the manager needs to know so they can talk with her! You could always write up a letter if you don’t want to call anyone.
Sorry you had to deal with that. Its actually pretty funny since its kinda bizarre!

Fiance and I think its kind of hilarious… Now we’re both always slipping “if you value your fingers” or “fine! I’ll just be single forever!” comments into our converations and bust out laughing.

Sounds like AF is visiting her.. But I would talk with the manager. Saying you found a band for him but because of her attitude and remard you will be shopping else where. never know it could be a good discount for you lol.

Maybe it’s a state by state law where you aren’t married until you have your 3 carat band. She’s just looking out for you, jeeze

@Grizz: LOL! I’m so glad those catchphrases have made it into your everyday life now 🙂
Also, don’t you just love “Bridesmaids”? 😀

wow, what a nutcase!
Also, they don’t cut off fingers to remove titanium rings 🙂 Titanium can be cut just fine, the only difference is that depending on the situation, it might have to be cut in two places instead of cut in one place and bent back like a gold ring. Tungsten carbide can’t be cut but can be cracked/broken off. No one sells rings made out of material that would require amputation to remove.

Whaaaaat?! As someone who worked in retail for a LONG time, that is CRAZY! Particularly for someone working on commission. Not everyone pulls the trigger the first time, but if you treat them like a human they’re a lot more likely to come back.

That’s so awful I had to laugh. Who even says that!?

She must work on commission and very badly, I might add! She should be

I had a similar, but less bizarre incident happen to me today so I can totally understand what you mean. I went to look at engagement rings and the salesperson at one store thought I was crazy when I asked if they had any rings with SMALLER center stones. She proceeded to tell me (among other things) that I’d just be wasting money because then I’d have to buy a ring with a bigger stone when I got older and changed my mind. I was so tempted to make some comment about how I didn’t know she was a fortune teller! I think it is inevitable that a few of those people will show up, but at least they provide us with catchphrases to use later on, right?

@Grizz: The salesperson at our jewelry store said the same thing when we were shopping for bands for FI! He’s like “you would be stupid to go titanium unless you want your finger getting cut off”. I get what he is saying, but still, you could be a little nicer about it!
