the sales lady at one store we went to had me ‘try-on’ a gigantic 2+ carat ascher cut hat pin… To the tune of at least $15,000 plus the ring/setting itself. She was gushing so hard over it being perfect, blah blah blah…. After I told her our budget was under $1,000…. It just left such a bad taste in my mouth we didn’t go back…
On another note, I REALLY wonder about the gentleman walking around with a 2+carat diamond hat pin…

I hate how sales associates can be so dismissive :(. I really feel like the better option is to let customers have fun with the pieces in the store and make them feel comfortable and not judged during the jewelry considering and buying process. I mean, come on, most people are not in the store looking for the big-budget pieces. We want to have the same experience and luxury as those who are, though!
