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! ๐Ÿ™‚  People are always going to make insensitive comments with anything wedding related – don’t let it bother ya. ๐Ÿ™‚

@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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

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.”  ๐Ÿ™‚

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