A jewelry consultant sold a $16,000 engagement ring while working from home during the coronavirus lockdown.
Shenae Comer, a Kay employee from Washington state, spent 90 minutes on the phone with the buyer and was able to discuss details and show him detailed pictures online, before arranging to have it shipped to his home.
She’s been working from home as part of the company’s virtual jewelry consulting service.
The Neil Lane Premiere engagement ring has a pear-shaped diamond surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds totaling two carats on a white gold band.
Kay stores are part of the Signet empire, which also includes Zales, and Jared. All outlets in North America have been closed since 26 March because of COVID-19.
