Oh, you've got that right! I've been saying that about the "bronzo" and silicone both. I really hope people understand what they're getting for these high prices.

That is nuts{#emotions_dlg.w00t} I have a couple of pieces of the old "UltraFine" jewerly line (from years ago) and there is nothing fake about them. I can't believe the price for silver.

Goo filled...LOL!

the whole description is misleading and in fact, not true...........950 silver is NOT fine silver, it's not even ultra fine..........mainly because it falls below the 99.9 % fineness........basically it's just sterling silver, a tiny bit higher grade then most sterling, but sterling silver none the less......okay......a gooey centered sterling silver overpriced bracelet is a better description..............................raven

Does the "goo" at least taste good...like the goo in a donut...?

Basically, it is gold-plated goo!

there is no way i would buy that kind of jewelry!!

i wonder - is it heavy? does the silicone become hard?? or does it feel light and cheap even though it wasn't?{#emotions_dlg.confused1}

i love my real yellow gold - and even if i could not afford it i would never buy this sad imitation.

Just because it's silicone filled doesn't make it cheap or junky. I'm willing to bet many of us have gold jewelry pieces that are "hollow". What's the difference if the piece is filled with silicone or air? With silicone, at least the jewelry won't dent.

With that said, I think QVC gold prices are outrageous.

"goo filled" That so funny and so correct. I have no problem with such products, I just think QVC is charging much too much for the product.

Lucky you. I have a few pairs of hoop earrings (sterling and gold) that are hollow.

What other people decide to do with their money is their business.

I'm got a big YG fan so if I found a piece of silicone filled gold that I liked and was cheap, I would buy it. I wouldn't pay some of the prices QVC is asking though. I buy my jewelry for me to wear and enjoy. I couldn't care less what happens to it after I'm gone.

Bathina, hollow gold can still be repaired if dented by a good professional goldsmith. The silicone filled jewelry cannot and that is the major difference between the two.

I'm curious - Any idea what a bracelet like this would cost with enough gold body in it to make it wearable with denting the first time I'd put it on? I have no idea - just that it would be more and it's already out of my comfort range!

Also, silicone filled rings cannot be sized.
