“GOOD VALUE EVEN IF NOT TOP QUALITY”

Written on: 03/09/2011

Caught up by the urgency of the presenter on an 'ultra clearance' day and because I knew there was a 30 day money back guarantee, I ordered a 1 carat diamond cocktail ring which looked fab on TV. I then read some reviews on this site and was a bit worried and felt a bit foolish about having ordered without doing some research first. However, the ring has arrived and I am delighted with it. I paid £240 for 1 carat of diamonds set into an oval setting. The diamonds are miniscule but the overall effect in the ring is good. The quality of the jewellry is not fantastic - the band itself is incredibly thin but am hoping since it's 9 carat gold it will be a bit more robust than 18 carat. Also, you don't actually see the diamonds from underneath the setting - it seems as though the diamonds are set into a bed of white gold? But when I'm wearing that no-one will see that - what they see is how it looks on the hand and for £240 I think it looks fab. I have another couple of 1 carat diamond rings which I paid over £1K for on the High Street so at £240 - even if the quality is not fantastic - I am pleased that I've got quality that matches the price I paid. It's a cocktail ring and I won't be wearing it every day so hope I'm not going to experience some of the issues others have with losing stones etc. Whether I would buy again from ANY of the jewellry channels I'm not so sure - having read some duff reviews - but had I not read the reviews and seeing the ring in reality I would probably have ordered again without hesitation. My rating above is based on everything I've said here but I accept that had I paid more or expected a better quality then the rating would not have been as good.

The biggest problem with Gems TV is that they have no quality control. They constantly compare themselves with top quality jewellers, this is like comparing a cheap coat bought on the high street in a "value" shop and a coat from a department store with a good brand name, and guarantee to match. Their stuff is just one up from good old Woollies genuine "paste": at least in those days we knew what we bought had a limited life, and no one pretended otherwise.
