I listened to & watched the vid and nothing was mentioned about this, leading one to believe that they were all gold.
But, reading the description, it says: "These earrings were made over an inner core of resin by a process called electroforming, which creates lightweight earrings that are strong and dent-resistant.
Stamped bronze? Not 14kt.
What's up with that?
Are they really just bronze earrings with plated gold (that will eventually come off) ?
Maybe Lisa said something that's not included on the vid by item #J279376. But if I was watching t.v. and nothing was said...that's a glaring, on purpose ommission of product info and facts.
Just what do they mean by 'resin core'?
And am I right, that these are just plated bronze, basically costume jewelry, for $89 plus tax & shipping?

I wish I had read this forum before making my purchases. Now I’m beginning to realize I made a big mistake in purchasing an item that said 14K yellow gold electroformed over an inner core of resin in the description. I too saw the video about this item and they do make the buyers think it is real solid gold. I am so upset now, and realize now that maybe this is the reason This discounted item was a return? I tried to cancel the item the same day I purchased it, but was told that the item is already processed, so I was not able to cancel? Wth? The item was still in their warehouse, and not shipped yet? So why was I not able to cancel? Then other items I purchased I made the mistake of not reading the reviews as well. And read that there were many negative things about gold jewelry being cheap material, thin, bending even broken after just a few days. Then QVC charges the buyers for their own shipping to return an item? This is so far rediculous, and I will not be buying from them again. I have purchased many pieces of jewelry from HSN, and their jewelry is so far the best. I love the quality and the prices. And have continued to buy their jewelry. I wanted to give QVC a try just to compare the two. But even before receiving any of my items I’m already disappointed in them. And am expecting a bigger disappointment. I already know I’m going to return these items when I do get them, but am going to get ripped off with the shipping. I think I will be sticking to HSN from here.

I would never buy anything with a resin core. It means the item was made with resin snd dipped in gold or whatever. In most cases, the gold is not even as thick as plated.
15-20 years ago, was a dfifferent story. There was still substantial gold in such pieces. Today though, it's just a way to go cheap.
