The Story Behind "My Right-Hand Ring"

Last Reply by pegomyheart 1409149669.89 | in Fashion Talk, Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities

I knew I wanted a right-hand ring, but I couldn’t seem to find the perfect one. I looked at a lot of styles, and many of them had details that I liked. But no single ring had exactly what I wanted. So, I decided to have a custom ring made. When the jeweler was working on my ring, I thought ab... Continue Reading

Klondike Gold Rush(R) this Friday - One of My Favorite Days of the Year!

Last Reply by LovInGold 1408119116.797 | in Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities

This Friday is one of my favorite days of the entire year, right up there next to Christmas! It is our 24-hour Klondike Gold Rush(R) Sale, where everything on the entire day is gold jewelry and it's all on sale! For more than 15 years I have had the honor of visiting the Vicenza Gold Fair with our buyers. Vicenza Italy is the heart of the gold industry. It has been interesting to see how the jewelry industry has grown and evolved. Since 2008, a lot of retailers have gone out of the gold business, but not QVC. We remain one of the largest retailers of 14K and 18K gold jewelry in the United Sta... Continue Reading

Launching the All Bronze Collection

Last Reply by Jgray 1408513420.55 | in Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Dear Friends I am thrilled to be back on QVC August 20 at 1am EST, where I will be launching my ALL BRONZE collection of gutsy classic, ICONIC signature RLM jewelry. Concentrating mainly on high polished, clean and pure bronze cast forms, it will be as if we were back in 1999 when silver was still  very affordable and I made jewelry that had a luscious heft to it.  I have a gut feeling that this will be a fast and furious hour, with sellout after sellout, the way I like it....the way it gets all of our ADRENALINE pumping like the good old days! Please tune in for this li... Continue Reading

X + Sleeping Beauty= Perfect!

Last Reply by charleybarley 1409309285.223 | in Jewelry Talk, Carolyn Pollack, Hosts & Personalities

I have always been of the belief that too much open work on the top of a ring is not very attractive. Well, I sure changed my mind when I tried on a few of this year’s HOT “X” rings at the JCK Show in Las Vegas. There is something so feminine yet powerful, and a little edgy in this...
