Jill and Jane really pushed sterling silver. Joan Rivers really funny with Kathy. Lots of different colors of gold. Imperial gold bracelets.

Watching the new releases on YouTube?

does QVC sell any more Black Hill gold anymore?

Also, does anyone remember the really dreadful (and mercifully short) fad of different colors of gold? greens and purples and other garish colors?

Re: Memories of QVC Jewelry presentations

Years ago when Judith Ripka had a TSV (usually presented by Lisa R) there was a very active Ripka forum and we would discuss everything presented....I bought a lot of Ripka back then.  Though it was never cheap, it was a lot more affordable back then.

 

I also miss Michael Dawkins!  I still wear a lot of his that I bought years ago.

Colored gold, resin filled gold, and Bronzo were the reasons I stopped buying QVC jewelry for quite awhile.  If you are wearing gold you want people to know it  Colored gold might as well be costume.  Resin filled was just plain cheating.  Bronzo?  Even Tiffany's took a swing at alloyed gold.  I think (and hope) it all died out.  The original jewelry presentations were the reason I started with QVC.  I used to get the paper schedule and highlight all jewelry shows.  I ran my personal schedule around them as much as possible.

I really enjoyed Pat on the Elegance of 18K gold shows. Before she did those shows, Jeff Hewson (thanks for the Jeffrey) hosted. And speaking of Jeff Hewson, does anyone recall him hosting the Beverly Hills gold shows? I think the vendors name was Claudia. She was definitely enamoured with Jeff.

I never saw Jeff Hewson (he was before my time, I think) but Pat was wonderful.  I once wrote her, thanking her for puttng on such a lovely show.  She wrote back, thanking me for the compliment.  is the Jeff Hewson out of shopping channels?
