I want my ring back - he has probably sold it on by now.
My ring back and the jeweller taken in hand and told he should be
issuing receipts for items in his care.
I have a friend who took an antique necklace that belonged to her deceased mother - for repair and he managed to loose it, she went
ballistic, in the end her husband had to go in and sort the man out and he
gave her husband money, like he did to my husband in connection with
the gold bracelet he was supposed to be selling for me.
When I brought the ring in only his wife was there - she just took the ring
and dashed out to the back of the shop, while shouting over her shoulder that they did not give receipts - I was left standing there, so I left. I am now wondering where my brains were!!!! As I say I had been a regular customer with them, I cannot believe that they would
carry on business like this. T.S. told me it was not required to give me
a receipt, I cannot believe this. I asked another local jeweller if this
was common practice - he said as far as he was concerned all customers got a receipt in his shop. It does leave people very vunerable when you actually trust people to trade fairly.
Jo - thank you for your help. I do think the law should be changed so
jewellers are obliged to give receipts because not doing so leaves a
very wide margin for abuse towards customers.
Also what is the point of having "Trading Standards" there in the first
place. I was disappointed with the help that I got from T.S. - in a nut
shell not a lot.
Again thank you for your help.
