They used to proudly brag about the gram weight and cost per gram. Now it's never mentioned. They're often unmentionably miserly in weight, which is probably why.

In the 80s, they told the gram weight. I knew it so well, and bought TONS of gold from QVC. The only problem I came across, time and time again, was when I started to sell it, I always got the same question..."Where did you get this"? I was told that most of my pieces were not 14k gold, but somewhere in the 13, or even 12.5 K gold. Anyway, it's all gone now, and I have no interest in buying again.

On TV.....guess I'll be saving my money!!
I remember Lisa Robertson saying when she was presenting Barbara Bixby saying her jewelry should have a gram weight because her pieces were so substantial. I believe I heard Nanch Hornbeck say the same thing about Barbara's pieces. Silver gram weight is important too. But Q does not give the information.

QVC always gave gram weights all the way through the early 2000's. They quit when the price of gold quadrupled. Nobody wants to hear that a $200 necklace only weighs 3 grams or less.

Am I imagining that gram weights are often (not always) listed online? I know some of the EternaGold pieces do not list the gram weight, but on the web pages, most gold jewelry does disclose it. I never watch the shows, but I've bought numerous pieces online over the years and I'm sure I've seen it. If there is no weight listed, I usually won't buy.
