What happened to the Judith Ripka inventory?

It went from more than 1,300 items to little more than 100. Is this a glitch or intentional?

This tells me her sell-off to an outside company was not successful.

Looks as though they're phasing her out.

That's too bad, but I haven't purchased any of her jewelry for several years now.  What I have is very nice, but I really don't have any need for more.

 

Maybe with so many people staying at home for most of last year, perhaps the sales were down...

I do think without Judith owning her own company, the popularity decreased. And then there were many complaints of quality.

The golden age of Judith Ripka I think was no more.

I have her older things too and they are wonderful but like so many have said, I don't need anymore, and that excitment in waiting for her next visit and new things that everyone fondly nick named ("green Goddess" etc), and calling out fans on live QVC has gone as well.

I noticed this when I went to my wish list and saw that most of the Judith Ripka items that I saved there were "sold out" -- they were primarily gemstone items set in silver.

 

@sunshine45  Yes, on average there were 1,300+ items.  I now see the 389 that you do, but at the time of my initial message, they only had 109 showing. Strange.

There can't be 289 returns, can there?   I have a few JR pieces, and was hoping to find another watch, but I'm not crazy about what's left.  Oh well.
