Okay - So I love Aldo accessories but lately I have been absolutely taken aback by Aldo and their team.

Starting out, I ordered a pair of shoes with cute bows on them for my sister's wedding. They fit and looked great so I went to look for some sort of whimsical little accessory to match, at their Aldo Accessories store. I ended up getting these rings http://www.aldoshoes.com/us/accessories/womens/rings/91727650-frodeya/66 (which are gold coloured rings with bows that have tiny fake gemstones on them).

Since the wedding was a couple months away, I decided to find out what the material of the rings was, so I could determine whether they would discolour/turn my fingers green if I wore them, which in that case i would save them for the wedding day. I tried to look on the website but no material information is provided. I contacted Aldo via the Contact Us button and sent an email asking what their accessories are made of. Well, a round robin game of email tag ensued as they first told me:
Thank you for writing to aldoshoes.com.

So I emailed back explaining that no, in fact the store did NOT have the information, as that was one of my first questions upon purchasing the ring ("This is fake, right?" "Yeah, but I don't know what its made of."), and that the sales associate wouldn't have a clue, compared to the head office I was emailing.

So I tried the LIVECHAT feature on the website, and got a woman called Mena. She was no help so I emailed head office yet again, "i want to know the composition materials of these rings. I have tried your Live Chat feature with a person called Mena, who was absolutely no help and told me to contact a sales rep at a store. Well I was AT the store, trying to buy these rings but didnt because the minimum wage rep didnt have a clue of the manufacturing materials. Please tell me it shouldnt be such a problem. If you have a live chat feature you should hire people that have a clue about your products. 2013-18-08-15-42-968 "

Then a person called Justin emailed me saying, "

I decided to just give up on my quest and post a review about them. I will assume they are of a composite that will probably discolour so I will save them for the day, then wear them after that.

Just today I got one final email from Aldo: "

Upon reviewing your request with our Marketing team, unfortunately we were unable to confirm the material for our accessories. I



It would seem that most of our rings are top coated with material that is different from what is underneath.



We apologize for the inconvenience.

How incredibly ludicrous and disturbing! They have lost me as a customer for sure.

I like Aldo's accessories. The earrings are super fun, and their handbags are really nice! Although the quality isn't the best, and the products aren't incredibly long lasting - I like the looks, and continue to purchase them.

Some of their products are good but then some are not too good. I had to return a handbag which didn't last for more than 1 month, since then i have not been to this store.

I have always liked the accessories they carry in Aldo stores and for awhile now I have visited the Aldo Accessories location in downtown Eaton Centre. More recently this store has been popping up in mall after mall. I love that their products are divided on the wall by theme or color scheme and that the staff are always willing to help you pick something out if you need help. I have bought many pairs of earrings from this store and none of them have irritated my ears or tarnished in any way. Their stuff is probably a bit more than you would pay at other chain accessories stores but I do find the quality of product makes it worth it!
