So I just went to Jared’s to drop off my ring to be buffed, cleaned and rhodium dipped. Upon arrival, the saleswoman asks me how long I’ve been married. I responded “only since September!” – she proceeds to congratulate me and then takes my ring to the microscope to inspect the stones/setting…
Half a breath later, she says to me “you know, if you’re interested in upgrading your stone or replacing this setting, we do that here! In fact, we’re having an event this weekend where every $100 you spend on a replacement center stone, you get $50 toward your replacement setting as long as that has diamonds in it too!”
I was so taken aback that this woman was basically trying to sell me a whole new wedding ring set when I had JUST told her I’ve been married less than a year! I just looked at her and said “no, um, I’m not interested in any of that, I love the ring set my husband picked out for me!”
She then proceeded to try to get me to open a Jared’s account “in case I changed my mind!”
There are no words!

Eh, she’s just a salesperson trying to sell you stuff you don’t need. 😛

That’s annoying. I hope they don’t do that to me when I go in! I’ll go all bitch-tastic on them =)

I wouldnt think too much of it, she was just trying to make a sale. But it is almost like she didnt hear you just say you’ve only been married since September lol

I don’t think it would have mattered what kind of ring you had. She sounds like that typical annoying sales person. I had one this weekend try to get me to open a joint macy’s card with my fiance even though we each have our own because we could save another 20% off our $20 purchase. I was like I will save that for a larger purchase than a $4 savings and he said are you sure – it’s 20% (which is still $4). LOL

OMG, that SAME thing happened to my friend who went there. She’s a pretty big bitch though and responded with something like, “no thanks, I see you haven’t upgraded and you work here!” Since Jared sells Pandora now too she always gets hassled about adding more beads, she had to stop wearing her bracelet into the store because they were so pushy about it!

Ahhhh that would’ve caused me to throw a bitch fit. That’s why I’m so glad that the people who work at the Jared’s closest to me are sweethearts!

It was just so annoying, since she’s like “OH you’re a NEWLYWED!” and then half a breath later basically told me that I should replace everything about my ring! And whenI told her that I was all set, to continue to push and say “well talk to your husband tonight, and see what he thinks, you never know! You could open a Jared’s account and you never know what you’d be able to get!” I was sort of INSULTED! like she didn’t think my ring was “good enough” ugh… I’ve been in there before and never had anything like that happen, they’re usually so nice!

The place my ring is from is like that too. It’s called Peoples Jewelers, I think the US version is Zales.
Soooo pushy and cheezy

She’s a sales lady. That’s her job, as annoying as it may be.

I’m sure she gets a lot of brides who want to upgrade or are at least interested in hearing their options since diamonds are fun 🙂

@MaybeeBecca – I get that she’s a saleslady and that’s her job, but maybe try to sell me an anniversary band, instead of trying to get me to upgrade and basically replace the set that my husband picked out for me! There’s a thing called tact! Especially when someone says explicitly “I love the set my husband picked out”!
