    Default The funniest things customers say - ( a light hearted look at the service industry )

    Thought I would start this thread off by recounting a story of a customer wanting a refund for his scratched wedding ring after 6 months wear ( the customer thought my gold must be softer as his mothers wedding ring looks in better condition ). Normally I would offer a quick polish as a service but this took me by surprise. Within the service industry - It is sometimes very hard to keep things in perspective.

    I am sure their must be other stories out there and would be interested to read.

    Earrings being returned twice with pinstems broken above the joint - "clearly" they weren't strong enough. Well, they certainly weren't up to being trodden on twice.
    (0.8mm pins, thoroughly work hardened)

    My favourites are the ones who insist I can defy physics.

    It can't be silver because it's tarnished.

    Do you make these from a kit?

    Where do you buy your chainmaille rings from?

    I explain that I make all my chainmaille rings from wire and hand anodise the titanium and niobium rings myself.

    Also...Where do you buy in your jewellery from? Even though I have a big sign stating all jewellery handmade in Devon :-)
