Too many “simulants”!

Post by D-Flawless » 7 months ago

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 Liquidation Channel and now as ShopLC....it looks more and more like a Wal-Mart each day! Ughhhhhh! I understand the price of gold went insanely high but do we really need simulated stones? That’s a new low that really depresses me! I love the fact that a meal is donated to a hungry child with each purchase (I figure I’ve fed over 60,000 kids!) but the emphasis seems to be on quantity NOT quality now! A huge disappointment! Soon this will be nothing more than another online Wal-Mart! 😢

Hi ya, I went to the site to check it out and noticed a
disclaimer from W saying that the items are as SLC
describes and then something that I had not seen before
was that items say that they are sold and shipped
from SLC, two day delivery. I do not get out and
shop around like I used to but I would like to see the
hallmark on some items that are in W. might still be
the old STS hallmark or maybe even Djoy by now?
don't know?

I also do not intend to buy glass stones here either. Or for that matter, half of the junk that they sell on “under $10 Friday’s” :|

Unbelievable....just looked on Walmart and there’s TONS of ShopLC jewelry! Looked mostly like the super low end made in China junk! Two day delivery appears to be $6. How are they pulling that off?!? Definitely not DHL! 🤣🤣 Like I said before, the emphasis has definitely shifted from quality to quantity! 😡

SLC also sells on Amazon and EBAY. 2 day free shipping. SLC recently sold a 9 ct Grandidierite ring on Amazon cheaper then on their own website. I sent SLC a pic of it.
Its ok for them to be branching out. What bothers me the most is in the last few months, the site has totally changed for the negative. Prices have gone up. Most things Im hoping to buy dont ever get the coupon. I used to buy hundreds of items if they ended up putting a coupon when there were only a few left. They didn’t artificially increase the price and then add a coupon. No. It was their price, but now with a coupon. I was able to buy hundreds of items for my extended family, adding up to about 40 kids Birthdays, holidays, engagements, graduations etc. Nowadays, I can get things cheaper on sites like Amazon with 2 day free shipping and free UPS returns.
I understand their President is new and is testing the waters.
I bet he changes the new DRAWN OUT final price. The hosts go on and on “ FOREVER” and just when I hope the next item will show, they will say: oh the President called and gave a lower price. So then its drawn out for another what seems forever. He seems nice, but as we all do, he will LIVE & LEARN.
