I bought an engagement ring for my now fiancée at a local jewelry store. When we she went in to get it sized, she saw another ring (and band combo) that she liked, so we decided to exchange it. When we asked the price of the combo, they told us it was $1,100 (like most jewelry stores, they always have a sale of some sort, so the price on the tag is usually meaningless). So, we returned the old ring, and got the new ring and band, and left them there to be sized. The receipt lists the base price as $1,100 + tax, minus the store credit from the returned ring. I paid the difference.
We just got a call from the store, telling us that there was a pricing mistake. Turns out it they meant it as $1,100 after the return. So I basically owe around $350 additional.
This obviously rubs me the wrong way. They do have the ring/band however... what are my rights here? Per store policy they do not allow returns, only exchanges.
For argument's sake, let's assume I already have the mice trained up and ready to go.
This is something I've struggled with a lot! So many jewelry organizers are meant for displaying and I don't like the cluttery look nor do I have the tabletop space for it. But I don't want to put it in a hard to reach area in a box either. I don't have a vanity. Are there any organizers you've found you really liked?
Young Entrepreneur here! So basically I've just been playing around with ecommerce and selling stuff. I have no issue actually creating the website or products, my main issue is the marketing/promotion.

Besides the lack of products which will be fixed over time, how would I go on growing a jewelry site? Any advice/suggestions will be taken into consideration, thank you!
So for christmas i found the perfect gift for my girlfriend. It was a necklace from a chain jewerly store. It wasnt very expensive 200$ but it was one of favorite creatures and it was her birth stone on a nice rose gold chain. It was very beautiful and the perfect fit. It ended up being 50% off at the till after having some shitty service so that was a bonus. I got them to gift wrap it which took a really long time and was done in the back. So christmas day rolls around and she unwraps the gift and gasps out loud and is awestruck. She unrapped a box for the disney collection which i knew she wanted it was just out of my price range at 350-800$ depending. So shes so excited for something disney and i had to tell her "no thats not whats in the box" she was visably let down. And when she opened what i had hoped was a super amazing gift. She loved it. But she wasnt nearly as excited as she was for the Disney collection box. It was kinda hurtful i dont she didnt intend for it to come across that way and i understand im not really mad at her. Its the jewerly store . So wibta for complaining. And i know i eould be the asshole if i did it now. So i guess would i have been the asshole if i did befor.
Tl;dr got my lady a gift. Jewerly store put it in the box of a way more expensive exciting gift so it was a let down.
He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.
The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring. The man said, "No, I'd like to see something more special."
At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. "Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000," the jeweler said.
The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, "We'll take it."
The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated, "By check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds. I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon."
On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said "Sir... There's no money in that account."
"I know," said the old man. "But let me tell you about my weekend."
Doris and Allen Sorenson were an elderly couple who owned a jewelry store called Sorenson Jewelers in Windsor, Colorado. They are described as kind and fiscally generous but private people who worked hard and socialized rarely. Doris was 66 and Allen was 79. In the days following October 31st, 1984, neighbors noticed several newspapers piled up on the front yard in front of the Sorenson's home and the police were called to check on the couple. The jewelry store was searched first as it was unusual for the couple to not be working on a Monday. Apparently the way the store was found led police to search the home. On November 5th the couple and the family dog were found murdered in their home. They had been killed on Halloween. Per more recent articles I found it stated that detectives had not disclosed the manner of death as to protect the investigation but evidence from the scene confirmed it was a double homicide and not suicide. However, I did find a small clipping from the Windsor Beacon newspaper from October 31st, 1985, written by Dan Looper which stated that the cause of death was strangulation. I was unable to find this information stated in any other source.
A strange side note is that the jewelry store was robbed almost one year to the day of the murders on October 30th, 1983. The burglars took more than $27,000 worth of merchandise. Three people were arrested in connection with the burglary. At the time of the murders two of the robbers were in jail and the third was out on bond. Unfortunately, many of the people who were investigated in connection with this crime have since passed away which obviously hinders any sort of resolution. There have never been any clear suspects identified. Investigators are pretty tight lipped concerning any extra details which is understandable.
My heart hurts not only for Doris and Allen Sorenson and their little dog but also for the loved ones and friends they left behind who have no answers. This was such a senseless crime and really rocked Windsor, which at the time was a pretty small community. I am attaching several articles concerning the case and a link to the The Way It Was podcast if you'd like to hear the episode they presented on the story. If you or someone you know has any information on this case please call the Windsor Police Department at 970-674-6400 and ask for Sgt. Shainline or Sgt. Aaron Lopez.

My wife wants a simple silver necklace for her birthday and I have no idea where to go in LB. What's your go-to for quality and price?
She's put up with me for 21+ years...she deserves much more :)
Hello everyone! I am currently trying to buy a necklace with a pendent on it for my gf’s birthday. Are there any recommendations on where to shop at? I was told to avoid the shopping mall jewelry store. Was just wondering on where everyone goes to buy that something special for their lady. Thank you!
I'm wondering if there are any physical stores around here, or if y'all know might know some reliable online shops?
How much work will it be to get it off the ground?I feel like there are areas being missed and I'm wasting time and money on this niche.I have facebook data from the past week.Reach is high 35k, but content view is less than 2% but no purchases.
Edit: looking for a board selection, someone who can apprise a diamond that I currently have
