Ariel McRae just wanted to marry the love of her life, but even though her now husband Quinn didn't have much, he insisted in getting her an engagement ring.

But when the couple visited the jewelry store Pandora in Tennessee, one employee shamed the groom after purchasing a $130 ring.

Ariel posted a photo on social media describing the experience and how her then fiance was left humiliated.

Ariel said a lady in the store remarked, "Y'all can you believe that some men get these as engagement rings? How pathetic."

The couple said instead of getting upset, they bought the rings and left.

Local news reports that after the jewelry store learned about the rude remarks of the employee, the company apologized to the couple over the insults they got over their budget for an engagement ring.

The store asked Ariel to pass on the name of the employee but she declined saying the posts intention was never to get someone fired.

Ariel's inspiring post has hit a chord with many people, quickly going viral on Facebook.

Now other people are posting pictures of their own rings, with similar sentiments.
