This is what came out of the sales guy’s mouth the other day. I just ran into the store to get my rings cleaned while I was in the mall. I didn’t really know what to say so I just kind of laughed awkwardly and said “don’t look at me!”. This is the sales guy who sold us the ring. Last July. Less than a year ago. Honestly, it did sting a little. I know that my stone isn’t the biggest. I don’t know the specs but I’d guess about .3 carats on a size 8 finge. There are times when I wish it had been a little bigger (usually when I’m browsing WB 2+ carat ring porn threads, lol) but I love my ring to death! It sparkles like no one’s business and I get tons of compliments. So why can I not stop thinking about this??

I think it’s natural to want things we don’t have. Doesn’t make you a bad person. Doesn’t mean you don’t value what you DO have. Don’t sweat it. He’s just a salesman and you’re just human.

Because it was a rude thing to say. I mean, I get he’s a salesman and all, but come on.
Honestly, if it were me, I’d probably say: “When I upgrade my jeweler. Thanks.” [walk out].

@LolaMonster: Don’t worry about it – he’s just trying to be a salesman! And if you do feel insecure about your center stone, you can always upgrade when YOU want on your own time and not b/c someone else makes you feel like you should! 🙂 People are always going to make insensitive comments with anything wedding related – don’t let it bother ya. 🙂

@LolaMonster: It was rude of him to say but try to remember that alot of young couples upgrade their rings later on and he is a salesman and likely wants to make a sale. I wouldn’t worry about it. If you love your ring then that’s all that matters!!

he just wants to make commission off of you! He’s a salesman and they don’t care about your feelings (like most salespeople 😉 )

It’s probably more cus he wanted to make a sale than anything else, try not to let it get to you 🙂

If you let this get under your skin, and end up upgrading even though you love your stone, then he’s won. If you don’t like what he said (and IMO it was kind of rude) the best thing you can do to “get back at him” is to forget all about it.

Tell me where he works – I’ll go kick him! I’m sure your ring is beautiful so don’t let him get to you.

Uggh! Jewelers can be SO RUDE! That’s why I prefer to shop for jewelry online now. I feel you about getting your rings cleaned though, so you have to go in to do it. I don’t understand how they think that insulting someone is going to make them want to jump in their wallet, pull out their charge card, and spend thousands. Good lord, what flawed logic.

That’s so rude!
I’m sure he was just trying to make another sale and he probably didn’t realize how rude he was being.
I still would have been tempted to say, “I love my ring and everything it stands for. . . .and IF I ever were to upgrade, it wouldn’t be with you.” 🙂

I’d just forget about it. Upgrade when you can! Who cares what a pushy salesperson thinks??

@MlleBrielle: We’ll I’m actually a salesperson. Who makes commission. And that’s really not true. I try to help my customer find whatever suits them best, not what helps me make the most mOney. And everyone I work with is the same.
