Re: Danielle /continued

Well, I think one of the problems on this forum is that of members thinking it is their right to tell SLC how to run their company and which products to offer and which employees to retain. Then, when SLC doesn't hop to it the members claim they haven't been heard etc. The hosts have a life outside ...

Tanzanite Accent Stones

I've been noticing lately how these stones have really good color. In the past, the little 3mm and under would be quite pale. Now, the stones I'm seeing in my pieces actually look like AA grade of a 1ct. rather than a pale periwinkle or (egads) pale lilac like HSN used twenty years ago.

Lolo is Such a Trooper!

How many hosts would or even could destroy their hairdo on camera to sell a hairbrush?

I want her hair - I'm so jealous.

Re: Tanzanian natronite

It's my understanding that up until the Tanzurine find, the cherry quartz and strawberry quartz stones we were accustomed to were man made.

You have a PhD - cool. What discipline? Does this mean we have to address you as Dr.?

Re: Primetimer Forums

Primetimer used to be called 'Television With Out Pity' and was sponsored by Bravo. Devotees were called TwoPers. There were some marvelous posters with extensive knowledge of television producing, writers etc. Yes, the current version is a weak imitation and quite difficult to navigate. But, you ca...

Re: Cleaning Jewelry The RIGHT Way

Natural body oils on pearls will obscure their luster and attract dirt. According to Roz Kwan (ShopHQ), the way to clean pearls is when you take them off lay them flat on a barely damp wash cloth and gently roll them back and forth to remove any substances. Allow them to dry before storing them. Als...

Re: London blue bracelet—close pin latch—-help!

Did you buy the tennis bracelet here? If so, look at the picture up close. It looks like the casting is a little glompy. I'd return it.

Re: ring sizing -- and Adi

I, for one, certainly DON'T want people to go back to where they came from. They need to learn to operate in the United States in a manner that is common, comfortable and acceptable to their audience. What puzzles me is why the hosts keep shooting themselves in the foot. Surely, they are aware that ...

Re: Who's Buying Anthill Garnet?

About twenty years ago, I bought a ring with anthill garnets from HSN. The stones were about 2 1/2 mm and were closer to a Christmas red. Around 3 years ago, I bought one from SLC with the same size stones and they were much darker and didn't look any different than regular pyrope so returned it. I...
