Shawn's Silver Rings and Bracelets Coming to Q?

Started 1319072876.42 in Jewelry Talk | Last reply 1319087772.48 by A Walker

Hi Ladies!

I know a lot of us don't use Facebook; but some of the hosts post upcoming events to their public accounts, so I check some of them for information on what they will be showing or thoughts on upcoming shows, etc. On Shawn's FB page, many people posted asking about her personal silver jewelry and where she purchased those pieces. They were purchased from a London Jeweler, Wright & Teague, and are pretty pricey. I read the below question and Shawn's answer and wanted to share it with all of you who might be interested in those items coming to QVC but who don't use FB or go on the hosts' FB pages for updates. I've had very similar bracelets and rings for a long time and love them. I think they could be a hit if they are done well and stay at a reasonable price point. Here you go!

<h6 class="uiStreamMessage" data-ft="{">"Hi Shawn! Like many viewers I LOVE your silver bead bracelet, and your silver charm bracelet. I have contacted Wright & Teague and let's just say their pricing is a bit out of my league, lol. I was wondering with all the inquiries you get about the bracelets if you have considered working with QVC to design your own versions of them. I know that would please me and many other fans of them. Love watching your shows and really enjoy your blog too!! Thanks."</h6> <form class="commentable_item autoexpand_mode" action="/ajax/ufi/modify.php" method="post">Shawn Killinger QVC Thanks Denise! Have considered working on my rings and bracelets for qvc...really want to, so we're working towards it! Fingers crossed!</form>

Who knows what kind of quality these pieces would be though. QVC DID do a re-make of Shawn's personal aquamarine ring she wears on her middle finger (left hand) and it was a HUGE DUD!!! Many customers complained this ring looked nothing at all like Shawn's original and sent it back. It didn't last on dot com for very long either. They removed it after so many negative reviews.

Just thinking, Shawn's charm bracelet is an array of charms that are memorable things pertaining to HER life. For me, I would not want anyone else wearing the things that are special to me. Should be interesting what the bracelets will look like. Sadly, Q will do anything to make a buck.

I just checked out their site and I believe I saw Shawn's ring, but you're right .... not in my budget at this point.

I do remember that fiasco italia! I wondered if Shawn had anything to do with the remake of that ring because it was nothing like hers! I bet the Q will have to jump through legal hoops if they want them to closely resemble hers! Yes, should be interesting...

Yes... they are very expensive!

P.S. Sorry about the quoting problems... I couldn't get to it fast enough to edit my post and now it won't let me!

When my BF was in London several years ago on a business trip he picked up a ring and a pair of earrings from there as a gift for me. I had never heard of them before and I really love them and wear both all the time still. I have ordered several more and I really love everything I have gotten. I got a beautiful rose gold ring that I just love. I would love to see them bring a quality collection to the Q and make the prices more reasonable.

I couldn't agree with you more! I'm sure those pieces you received as gifts and the items you bought are simply gorgeous! What a very sweet BF! I've looked around their website and they definitely have a unique style about them. The one little piece I absolutely adore is that silver heart dangle they use to signify it's their creation. I just love hearts and agree, I would love the Q to do a quality line. If Shawn is involved and has her name associated with the design element, I'm hoping she will help to do just that!

I just checked this Wright & Teague site too... and I am not impressed . Maybe I am just not into British jewelry.... Would not wear most of it if was given to me for free..

I can't find her ring or her bracelets on the site. She bought them a while ago perhaps?

lol Oh Fluffy-2 You made me smile! {#emotions_dlg.biggrin} I gotta agree with you on most of her shows but I do like some of that jewelry as great everyday pieces! But for something like an engagement ring/wedding set or special occasions, I enjoy more pizazz!

Oh. I'm wearing the Forget Me Not ring right now :( It is constantly admired and I don't think it looks childish at all. Of course I bought it , along with many other pieces, before they were well known so it was only £50 not £200.

WOW - jealous for your deals! I never heard of them before they were so pricey, you are lucky to have gotten to them early! {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

I don't believe her pieces are made any more. I saw them on their site a couple years ago when she started on the Q. I wrote and asked her about them. The blue aquamarine ring is one she had designed for her. That's what she told me. QVC sold one to look like hers, but it's light blue topaz and a bad comparison of her ring. I do not think they can replicate her bracelets and do a comparable job.

LandOfOz - Thanks for the input which explains why we couldn't locate her pieces! I wonder what they will do to change the look as I agree, they won't be able to make them exactly the same unless they get all the legalities out of the way. They might be able to do something like they do with the Jackie Kennedy jewelry.
