I thought it was one of the ugliest collections of jewellery I have ever seen! (my apologies to anyone who bought something, just not my taste) For some of the prices they were charging I do not know why the base metal was not silver. Silver is approximately 60p per gram, to have a base metal of white brass is just cheap and unnecessary.
I was shocked to see base metal - is silver really so damned expensive now that no-one can afford it??? Maybe I should sell my bling collection and buy a mansion!!!
I'm guessing QVC's "silver" jewellery is mainly big lumps of stone these days for the same reason - but I bet if I did want to sell mine it would be worth nothing at all still - fairly confusing!
I saw this collection. I was very surprised at seeing 'diamond? I don't think so' on TJC. Quite frankly, some of the prices for these bonded base metal pieces were practically the same as the SS/Platinum overlay(!) The designs weren't a great departure from the usual TJC fare so I wasn't tempted.
Real gemstones set in base metal...? rather like sewing gold buttons on to an acrylic jumper - what's the point.
My thoughts entirely Avid, I know we're all different, with different tastes and budgets but really, for a channel that prides it's self on 'we don't sell costume jewelley' and 'all we only use real gemstones' I was extremely disappointed, for me this is one step too far, but at least the credit card is safe!

I personally don't have an issue with this as they are totally up front about the range and it will allow people who can't afford the 'real thing' to have some pieces with genuine gemstones. I won't be buying anything but I'm sure many others will. Another sign of the times I'm afraid.
Silver is still selling at approx. £21.76 per ounce. Brass sells at approx. 5p per ounce. It is predicted that silver will rise in the next couple of years. Why is the Karis range on sale today. I think TJC is testing the water to see if we will buy jewellery made from a low cost base metal -white brass- before the price of silver goes up. The price of silver per gram is 60p. How many grams in a ring 2 or 3? some of the Karis necklaces were selling at £99.99. Some of the rings are £39.99 and most are made of white brass, some are made of copper.
Today there is no need to buy jewellery made of brass or copper and sold to you at the ridiculous prices that TJC were asking. You can see why they want us to buy the Karis range; the mark up is huge for them.
Also I do not think any jeweler is going to re-size a brass ring!
