Jewelry for the Ages

Last Reply by waterbaby 1244075999 | in Jewelry Talk

I hope everyone enjoyed Vicenza Style. My good friend, David Markstein, the buyer of 14k and 18k gold, has been on-air several times and his love and passion for jewelry is obvious. Here at QVC, David has really been responsible for the incredible breath of our gold jewelry.While watching the shows, I realized that there is something for every age, taste, and pocketbook. This past weekend, I was in Louisiana with my family and realized we now have four generations of ladies and the broad range of jewelry that I would be buying going forward. I have included a picture of this group which in... Continue Reading

Red, White and Blue for Summer

Last Reply by DW Designs Studio 1242888567 | in Jewelry Talk

Three cheers for the red, white and blue! As we head into the major summer holidays, and break out the red white and blue in our fashions and home decor, think about putting these all-American shades together in your gemstone palette. My first thought was ruby, diamond and sapphire, but that could get a little pricey and a little too dressy for a summer backyard party! So, think outside the box when looking to create this patriotic look. My friend Carolyn Pollack who designs Sincerely Southwest for us, calls turquoise, mother of pearl and carnelian the Southwestern version of red white and... Continue Reading

Everyone is Going Green

Last Reply by Ball Lover 1269102605.59 | in Jewelry Talk

It seems like everyone is going green, and that's a good thing! The month of May is the perfect time to go green in your jewelry box with green gemstones. We all know that emerald is the classic birthstone for May, and we do have some lovely "emerald pieces at qvc.com. But, let's explore some other exotic gems that can fulfill your love of green, like two of my favorites, tsavorite and diopside. Tsavorite is part of the garnet family. I grew up thinking garnets were red, and of course many of them are in fiery shades of red. But green garnet is so cool! Look for some pieces at qvc.com t... Continue Reading

Opaque Gemstones - Carnelian

Last Reply by pearllady 1241309400 | in Jewelry Talk

It is so hard to answer this question: "What's your favorite gemstone?" I have so many! But this week I thought we'd talk about one of my favorite opaque gemstones, carnelian. Right now it is hotter than ever, and I love it because you can get big, bold, exciting styles at great prices. I also love the color, it looks like paprika! It is from the chalcedony family and was treasured by the ancient Greeks and Romans. The Romans thought that the dark carnelian symbolized the male and the light carnelian symbolized the female. They loved to carve it into intaglios. What I love about it tod... Continue Reading

April Birthstone-Diamonds

Last Reply by kathyclaire99 1240512835 | in Jewelry Talk

Hey rock stars! I'm back for April with another entry on our favorite subject: gemstones! Most of us love to collect our own birthstone but we all claim a stake in April's gem, the diamond. Even through the history of diamonds goes back to the ancient people, it wasn't until the 16th century that daimonds began to compete with pearls as the gem of choice amongst royalty. In India, diamonds were believed to have magical powers and were not cut and faceted. When diamonds became popular in Europe, the art of cutting diamonds began, first in Venice and later in Paris.

Our Rock Stars this week center on the color that has taken on a whole new meaning, green. As we all try to be green, why not discover an exotic new green gemstone? QVC is always pushing the limit in bringing new gems, like our olive apatite. (Gorgeous!) Linked to increasing your self confidence, you'll be proud to show off this rare beauty. I'm thrilled malachite is so popular, because it is so lovely. The ancient Egyptians wore malachite as jewelry to ward off evil. Today we wear it for the range of green in each stone.

What's your favorite gemstone?

Last Reply by devotedtoqvc 1325642860.31 | in Jewelry Talk

Do you have a favorite gemstone? Maybe it's your birthstone, or a gem you've always loved. I fell in love with my favorite gem after coming to QVC. I had never heard of it before (let alone seen one!) but now I love to share my passion for fire opal. It's hot! Also known as "sun opal" or "Mexican opal," it doesn't show the play of color of traditional opal, but the intense color makes it a stunner. Fire opal is a mesmerizing beauty because you rarely see the reddish-orange color in any other gem. Wear it with summery brights spring into summer, but then watch it pop against rich earth to...

The central section of the Gloriette formed by three triumphant arches and the intricate swag over each arch inspired several exclusive Diamonique QVoyager Vienna designs.

Why buy jewelry?

Last Reply by grooviechickie 1229812861 | in Jewelry Talk

Why buy jewelry during the holidays? While the stock market has more ups and downs than the roller coaster (The Griffon) at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg and we are told to tighten our belts tighter than the contestants on the Biggest Loser, why indeed, should we buy jewelry? It's not as if we have to adorn ourselves to keep warm during the winter or that we can run our cars on gold.It really is about the importance of jewelry in our lives. What better way to say I love you than with that special ring or pendant. During tough times it is so important that we reach out to those we love with... Continue Reading

My Favorite Gifts

Last Reply by Saint Louis Gal 1228396838 | in Jewelry Talk

My family always has one request-Jewelry! My Mother, two sisters, three nieces, and four great nieces have come to expect jewelry for Christmas. OK, my one year old great niece, and the one to be born in March aren't quite ready yet, but they will learn very quickly. This year my Mother, Sisters, and two of my nieces will receive pieces from Judith Ripka's collection. I can't tell you which pieces, because they read my blogs, but will let you know some of my favorites.One of my favorite rings is J24946, especially in mint or champagne quartz. Another is J38321 because it looks just like p... Continue Reading

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

I am so excited about my THIRD show for RLM Home, which is on November 24th at 2pm EST. This is a photo from my last show, Nov. 5th, showing the TSV extra, my rectangular metal platter which is a beautiful center piece for a table by itself, but for the flash of it we showed three end on end just to give ideas as how to dress up a longer table. We had an amazing bamboo cutting board and a whole new color for the dishes: rich chocolate brown. There is also lots of new accessories to go with the "Tablet" flatware, serving pieces, and an elegant flatware chest, among many other new items, cheese... Continue Reading

So much has been going on since we last spoke. I hope everyone enjoyed Diamonique Week. Scott and his team out did themselves creating new, hot (one of the young buyers at QVC told me I was out of date and should say fierce instead of hot) items. Did you all have a chance to tune in for the premier of the QVoyager? The footage from Brazil and the spectacular Tourmaline product was not to be missed. Please let me know what you think of the four blogs I wrote on Brazil. A special ola to RGC who is originally from Sao Paulo. I have to tell you how much I love your beautiful, passionate ho...

Southwestern Balloon Fiesta

Last Reply by TenorKat 1225741091 | in Jewelry Talk

Hi Everyone!Wow, October has been a wonderfully busy month. It started out in London, where we celebrated the 15th Birthday of QVC UK! When I arrived back in New Mexico I had one day to prepare to host ten of my female relatives from Minnesota in a birthday celebration for my mom in Santa Fe and at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta! We had a blast!! I will never forget the moments we shared and my Aunt Jenny's tears of joy as we watched 700 balloons dancing in a perfect Albuquerque sky, including most of the special shapes....kissing bumble bees, a smiling daisy, the humungous d...

QVoyager Premier

Last Reply by Beta 1223712481 | in Jewelry Talk

I hope you are enjoying QVoyager and our whirlwind trip to Brazil. The most adventurous part of our journey begins today. We are actually traveling deep into the mountains of Minas Gerais, the richest gemstone mining area in the world, to the tourmaline mines. The unpaved road winding through the mountains was very rough and had death defying hairpin curves. More than once, while moving way too fast, I looked over the edge and saw the spectacular, but very deep valley. Whenever we would turn a curve and the sun would come out, the road would sparkle. We finally stopped and walking ... Continue Reading
