Re: Return and Refund

Well, that's interesting. What if there was a dishonest person working in returns and claimed the package was never received? Then we would have to file a claim with the post office? Many years ago, it was said that another Jewelry channel had a problem in their returns dept with an employee being l...

Re: Tucson Gem Show

It looks like it's the same stuff as last year. The California black jade is nephrite - not the more valuable jadeite.

Return and Refund

On January 22nd, I returned a ring. Hadn't heard anything so checked my tracking # on USPS website Feb 8th. It indicated the item has not been scanned as delivered. On Feb 9th, USPS sent me a notice that there was a 'delivery exception' (?). Later in the day, SLC emailed me that a full price refund ...

Re: Grandidierite and Kat Florence

Because I have no taste, I actually prefer the lighter seafoam color grandidierite. To me it has a velvety appearance rather than a hard luster.

Re: Grandidierite and Kat Florence

@Gem Lover That is the only time I have ordered items from that Don out of Africa and I kept nothing of his. And yes, was either bait and switch, or only other thing I can imagine is if the cold weather affected the opals, idk, but SOMETHING wasn't right. I have a ring from Cirari that comes on the...

Grandidierite and Kat Florence

Was watching GSN yesterday and they had a slew of Kat's pieces. Kat works exclusively with D-flawless diamonds which have become so hard to find that she is now only designing one-of-a-kinds. There was a grandidierite ring in the 4+ ct range set in 18K with her D-flawless diamonds. You know that sto...

Re: Buy One Get One Free

They should have stated that it's buy one and get one of equal value or less for free. I bought the kyanite bead necklace for $99.99 and andalusite hoops for $99.99 under the offer. I had been waiting for the kyanite necklace to be reduced to $49.99 ever since one morning a couple of months ago when...

Re: Compare ShopLC to ShopHQ Before Buying

The SLC ring you saw could not possibly be the same one you saw in Michael Valitutti's collection. All of his jewelry is made from a silver and palladium alloy, which is very unusual. It's not coated with platinum like the jewelry here because the palladium alloy does not tarnish. The ring was not ...

Compare ShopLC to ShopHQ Before Buying

In perusing Chuck Clemency's line, Gem Treasures, I saw a multi gemstone wrap style ring listed on sale for $83.99 with original price of $104.75. I had bought this exact ring at SLC in December with a sale price with coupon for $10.19. Currently, he has a multi gemstone London Blue topaz ring (179-...
