Re: Do not rely on hosts for your education

Unfortunately, once techniques became available to enhance stones to inprove color and clarity, and fill up badly cracked stones with glass. In the past these cracked stones could not be used in jewelry. The general public PROBABLY will buy beautiful looking stones that have been WORKED ON. I say i...

Re: Too many “simulants”!

Is anyone else disgusted by the plethora of “simulated” stones lately?!? If I wanted a cheap, fake stone I’d go to Kohl’s! I can remember when this channel first started as TJC in April 2007 there was nothing but 14k gold jewelry sold! Then 10k was introduced and silver came in after it become The ...

Re: Do not rely on hosts for your education

Hosts work in retail and their only job is to dump product in your lap and empty your bank account. They arent our "friends" or our "family". We cannot rely on them to educate us about gemstones...not the value or collectabilty. For example, just because its Burmese doesnt make it valuable. Not whe...

Re: Question

I don't believe slc makes jtvs jewelry. The old stamp for SLC was STS when they were making jewelry for other stations, etc., and now their stamp is Djoy. They are always saying things about their company so one never knows, but I understood them to say that they have stopped making the jewelry for...

Re: Tanzanite

I believe the grading system changed for Tanzanite several years ago. Not just Shoplc but from the mines. They were no longer using 4A because it wasnt coming out of the mine so things that were previously 2A were then 3A. I bet there are articles on the GIA website if you can go back several years.

Re: Telling us to buy without knowing the price

I don't really understand the purpose of the 'in- between' prices on live-tv. Retail replacement value (start price)...ok. But why do they do all the in-between prices before getting to the actual purchase price? Some of us lose out to others while waiting for the 'final price' If enough pieces act...
