HUGGIES RETUNED

[ Edited ]

One pair of my huggies were much smaller than appeared on TV and online...couldn't even get around lobe to click closed (the Diamonique ones). I had ordered another pair, too and the closure broken when arrived. Getting disgusted w/ quality of merchandise and quality control. These things should be thoroughly checked before mailed. 

 

*The platinum clad 100 facet and the huggie inside/outside w/ stones.

Glad I cancelled my order.

 

With millions of products coming in from all over the world......how can  'they' check every item? 

Also items are already pre-packaged and ready to ship to consumer. QVC would have to un-wrap and re-wrap before shipping.  Mission Impossible................

@fthunt  The design is flawed. They just needed to check the samples.

@Shanus 

What is the item number of those hoops so I'll know not to order them?

Thanks @Shanus . Those pave huggies are the ones I mentioned in a thread I started recently and I knew the huggies were very tiny....it's what I want.

 

The other one you mentioned, with the single front-facing stone, doesn't have a locking clasp so I didn't order them.

About those pave huggies...

It says in their description that they measure 1/8" wide. When I saw that, their size came into perspective, especially when I looked at the posts which looked to be rather big in thickness but then not really.

Over the years of shared earnings, I found there are vast differences in lobe thickness and hole placement.

 

Could be the reason.

Diamonique - "Made In China."

 

Perfect timing because I was reading replies this morning on Quora to the question:  Why are Chinese products so poorly made?

 

This website is international, so of course, Chinese-Americans and Chinese nationals added their own thoughts.

 

Most of the Chinese responses were about price, what retailers are willing to pay to have products made.  What consumers are willing to pay. The lower the price, the lower the quality.

 

Of course, that's true wherever you go.

 

However, what about the Bait and Switch Quality Fade commonly found in China? The high quality of the sample sent to retailers for approval fades over time as the manufacturer makes more money by cutting corners, but the buyer is paying the same price.

 

This from a consumer.

 

Chinese-made goods mostly suck because many Chinese business people have lousy business values. When a Chinese manufacturer takes a contract, they often feel little or no actual obligation to manufacture according to spec, if cutting corners will make more money for them or their network of family and friends. 

 

I keep wondering when U.S. companies are going to wise up and start reinvesting in the United States, which used to be the envy of the world when it came to high-quality manufacturing. I'm not holding my breath though, because while U.S. executives are busy examining their own polyps, Chinese executives are laughing all the way to the bank, which BTW they now own.
