Let's take a look at what is new for spring. It's all about color and the silhouette. My spring color palette is strong with the confidence of classic white and black opaques yet soft and feminine in luscious pearls of white, gray and p... Continue Reading

More Tucson Gem Show

Last Reply by desperate-housewife 1266877842 | in Jewelry Talk

Please don't miss the Today's Special Value tonight at midnight. It is a fabulous piece with many of my favorite stones-turquoise, lapis (which is that deep rich blue with golden flecks), boulder opal, elongated fresh water cultured pearls, citrine, garnet, pink quartzite, and crystal quartz. It is for the true gem lover, fashionable, bold and colorful. .We contacted each of the major gem dealers a couple of months before the Tucson Show to see what gemstones they would be premiering. We were able to see samples of the stones and order in advance for the show. Two new colors of transparen... Continue Reading

We were an hour taking off because of de-icing the plane. Luckily, my connecting flight was delayed, so I ended up getting to Tucson just about on time. I posted a couple of pictures from Tucson below. Those are gigantic amethyst geodes in the picture with Nancy.Tucson is the largest gem show in the world and very important for new gem discoveries as well as finding enough quantities of hard to find stones to b...

Colors of Fall

Last Reply by donnaluby 1258142231 | in Jewelry Talk, Judith Ripka

Like most women, I lean towards grays and blacks as wardrobe staples, because they are classic and easy. But, as most of you know by now, my passion is color, and I always like to add my own modern twist. I love color in my clothing, my art and especially my jewelry. So, yesterday, as I was strolling up Madison Avenue with my girl friends, I felt like a kid in a candy store, because every major luxury brand is now featuring exciting new fall product, all rich in color. I think it took us almost an hour to walk 10-blocks, because we had to stop and discuss our favorites at each window. We ... Continue Reading

Exceptional Value Meets High Quality

Last Reply by CuriousGeorgetta 1302413913.243 | in Jewelry Talk

As Freshwater Pearls evolve, we continue to see a greater availability of the near round pearls that jewelry lovers covet. The challenge has always been bringing these high quality round pearls to QVC at the right price. After our most recent overseas buying trip, we found that the prices for these near round goods are on the rise. With this in mind, we are thrilled that we were able to collect a large amount of these pearls before the rising prices and offer a value that we just do not think we will see again.We don't often focus on individual designs on this blog, but this Friday we are b...

Hello friends, Last night I saw the movie, The September Issue, the documentary about the making of the ever famous September issue of VOGUE magazine. Year after year, fashion enthusiasts turn to VOGUE to learn about the trends of the season and how they can fuse them with their own personal style. What was most fascinating to me about the movie was how influential VOGUE is in not only setting the pace for America's fashion trends for consumers, but also for designers. So, you can only imagine how exciting it was for me the first time my jewelry graced the pages of this renowned fashion bib... Continue Reading

Creede is coming!

Last Reply by KailaS 1254527542 | in Jewelry Talk

Hi! Even though all day Friday is all about silver, it will also have some awesome gem pieces during the day. I was just chatting with our buyer Aliison who just returned form a whirlwind trip to many countries, and she was saying what an exciting time it is for sterling and gems. Many major gem vendors who only worked in gold and gems are now working in sterling and producing some dazzling pieces. Here's a sneak peek of a couple of gems coming up on Friday during the Creede Silver Sale (I'll be with you from 8 to 11am eastern time):You'll see gems that are deeply saturated in color, like chr...

I want to thank you all for a wonderful show on Designer Day! I haven't had a chance to catch up with you because Bill and I left immediately for Hilton Head Island, and we had a rule, no computers!! It was wonderful to see Bill relaxing for the first time in months! We played tennis everyday, rode bikes all over the island, were visited by dolphins while we kayaked, and ate fish every day! We are rested, rejuvenated, and excited to get back to work. I returned to many smiling faces at Relios, happy that our new collections; Moondance, Mojave Lily, Sweet Dreams, and Flower Berry were so p... Continue Reading

Getting Back to You

Last Reply by waterbaby 1253991878 | in Jewelry Talk

It seems like I am always passing on information to the buyers, planning, or other big shots and can't usually let you know info right away. Fran (waterbaby), I'm glad that you enjoyed Judith's recent show. The Amethyst/Peridot ring will arrive at QVC in the next six weeks. The turquoise/Diamonique drop earring is also on order and should arrive here in the next 3 months. SaintLouisGal, the Green Goddess Enhancer was cut from the last show because of time. It will be presented in the next show. It was available for purchase on line during the August show but was removed when the presenta... Continue Reading
