Saving Relationships – When The Hints Are In Sight Visit Aurex Jewellery
On the floor he sat without care or fear of what people would say. All he thought of at that moment was Maria. I caught a glimpse of his bloodshot and teary eyes before he buried his head in his knees. My colleague and l were bewildered by all this. We let him be, until with sadness in his voice and without being asked, he narrated how he had an argument with his girlfriend of three years and that he was about to lose her.
Her birthday had been three days ago and she had expected a better present from him than a new set of the current iPhone. He had not understood what could be better than that, because he already got her a car on her last birthday. Suddenly, her countenance had changed from happy to sad when she opened her gift. The next morning, she had announced to him that she was leaving town. Her reasons were that there was nothing to stay for and she had to move on with life. Their relationship had remained stagnant for years and if it was not going nowhere, then she had to go instead. “Please help me ladies, l can’t let her go just like that,” he said, in a low begging voice. “What did you have in mind?” l asked. He wanted an engagement ring.
A week before her birthday the couple had passed by window-shopping. Maria had tried on a few rings and fell in love with an RL0557 silver ring. Although it was not her perfect fit, Silus insisted on purchasing it with the intention of returning it for resizing. So, we polished the ring and packed it in our best jewellery box. Silus had to propose that night, so he could convince her not to leave town the next morning.
Even after purchasing the ring, he was still worried that she might reject, but there was nothing we could say or do except encourage and assure him that everything was going to be alright. The relationship had to move to another level. Once a lady is in a relationship, she looks forward to the next step, which is engagement and finally marriage. So, we gave him the shop contacts and wished him all the best.
The next morning, we received his joyous message that she accepted, and they were going to come to the shop for the ring resizing later that day. What a relief my colleague and l felt! We were happy to have saved the relationship. Imagine three years being thrown away! We could not take it! When they strolled in later that afternoon, we congratulated them. In gratitude, Silus bought lunch as a thank you for helping him the previous day. It is an honour to know that with a simple ring two people could save and redefine their love for each other. Customers have different preferences. While some prefer gold, others prefer silver.
For their wedding rings we advised the couple to opt for white gold to increase their store of value. They were happy to also keep supporting us at the shop and to date they have purchased neck chains, anklets, pendants and even a fashion ring. Our customers reflect the reality of life and as such we should treat them as our own brothers and sisters. Our jewellery has the power to save the crumbling relationships. It is simple and irresistible.
Therefore, remember to visit Aurex Jewellery when the hints are in sight!
