I am sorry I also have not tried stainless steel from HSN. I have a few very wonderful Steel By Design QVC pieces from many years ago when it was first on QVC. Back then all of the pieces was made in Italy where now most is made in China like almost everything else we buy.

I absolutely love it....i have many pieces and the prices are cheaper than QVC...

There is also a steel line on SNBC.

I have. The price may be cheaper than Steel by Design, but the quality is not there. I have returned every piece of Stately Steel that I have tried. I will stick with QVC.

Neither for me as I like the use of magnetic clasping on bracelets -- often on neckwear too, so I like to stick with .925 silver. I would certainly look at an earring though as long as its not too heavy Smile.

Definitely Steel by Design on QVC. I have owned both and as someone else said, while some of the Stately Steel prices may be cheaper, the quality is lacking.

I bought a large pair of Stately Steel hoops that were under $10.00. The look was more than I expected but they were very flimsy and hard to clasp without bending the earring. After about 3 wearings the bar broke off. It was after the 30 days so I was out of luck.

Simona Collini With Q's Steel by Design. That says it all. Talk about a bargain-free if you consider the designer and Italian crafting! {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

I have tried both lines.

I prefer the Q's quality for the steel line, but I have purchased some really nice items that surprisingly were right up there with the Q and I got a better price over at the Southern channel...

Two rings still sold in the Stately Steel line that I can recommend are:

Stately Steel High-Polished Wide Dome Ring

Item: 964-505 <!-- PD Page Tracking Pixel -->ONLY $14.95

Stately Steel High Polished Bold Rectangle Ring

***Item: 185-048 $18.95

***This one looks like the style of the famous RLM Studio Tablet ring here on the Q and is longer (knuckle to fingertip) and more like a piece of sculpture. It does have an indented area which I find that I rub my finger on when deep in thought! LOL

There are a few more pieces I'd like to recommend but they are no longer stocked.

***On the Q gotta grab J27920 in either or both MOP or Onyx- Steel by Design Bold Square Gemstone Rings

Great weight, great look, great price!

HTH :)

Yes last year. To me it was darker than the Q's and didn't like. Like the Q's better, but just have one piece.

I have a number of items from QVC (Steel by Design) and maybe a couple from Stately Steel. I do prefer the Steel by Design. However, I am mostly replying to second Gigot's comments about Simona Collini---I have many of her pieces and love them all.

I especially love Simona Collini. I have quite a bit of her stuff and wear it all the time. All that gold and real silver just sits while I wear stainless steel. How funny. Really! However, once in a while a real piece of good jewelry will speak to me and I'll buy it. I actually bought a few things from Overstock. They don't say if the silver is 925 or where it is made. However I would swear they are offering RLM's ring that I bought last year from the Q. It's the tableu ring and I love it. Really, it is too much exactly alike not to be his. Can someone confirm this? I have already bought Tacori from Overstock that is half as cheap as the Q is selling it for and it makes me nervous because what else will pop up on Overstock that I paid a lot for on the Q?

YES! I have purchased two pairs of earrings and a filigree ring from HSN's stately steel line, and I luv them all. Their steel pieces are a little cheaper too. But, they do not have a broad selection as QVC does, especially for the bracelets and necklaces.

No since we have Simona Collini on SBD, the best!!!!{#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

I have a lot from each. There is something about the way steel gleams that i love. The other channel has some trendier, bold designs that are nice, but if I had to choose one, it would be the Q for quality and larger selection. I hope both increase their steel selection. I just love it!

HSN stainless every time because . . .

1. Qualitiy is great

2. Great sales / Frequent clearances: They move their merchandise along and it is never stale. QVC has had jewelry on clearance for 2-3 years. BAD business, QVC.

3. Combined S&H on a regular basis
