      Default And the Winner of 'The most Naff 'Christmas in July' event is........

      Well, this makes the hat-trick...they've all jumped on the Christmas in July bandwagon, Gems included, and I think they must take the prize for the most naff. Anyone treated to the sight of Adina last night, wearing what looked like Scrooge's nightcap perched as though it was about to fall off at the back of her untidy hair must have laughed as much as I did...and switching over at various times of the day, as from yesterday, has yielded some interesting sizes and shapes of Christmas headgear, from what looked like a policeman's helmet made for one of the Borrowers perched like a large pimple on someone's head, to a Santa Claus hat that looked several sizes too big, and was about to slide down over the presenter's eyes. Do I get the impression they cobbled this event together at the last moment, and made a grab for whatever was in the stock cupboard? And where's the event, may I ask? The prices didn't seem that low to me, about par for the course, so what's so special? Talk about bankrupt of ideas. The sooner these channels stop this farce of Christmas in July, the better.

      I wish they would all stop with this nonsense of Christmas in July. I find it all depressing and will not watch. The thought of Adina in a Christmas hat, scratching her nose, head, waving her hands around, etc, and not finishing her sentences is all too much to bear.

      The nose picking (sorry, scratching) and waving hands are optional extras.

      I was too polite to say nose picking But you are right that is what it is.

      I switched on this morning just after 8.30 and there was a blonde girl on with a high pitched voice, and santa hat, who vaguely looked like Jill Franks if you screwed your eyes up and did not rub the sleep away. Anyway she was mighty annoying too, her voice was making my ears bleed. I don't think I have seen her before, nor wish to again. It was the same ole thing, 'we can't do these deals again, blah, blah, blah'.

      I know the one you mean, Anna, although I don't know her name (they all 'merge' into one, if you know what I mean). She's so 'in yer face' she makes Amanda Holden look shy and retiring. What can you say about this channel, other than it's like rearranging deckchairs on the Titanic? This afternoon a new promo. advert flashed up - "The Rarity of Tanzanite". RARITY? Are they joking? The blurdy stuff's on every day, every other hour, so what a load of horse hockey that is. Flicked over for 2 minutes this afternoon, and Angeline is also telling us you won't get these deals in future. They should have these words recorded and running on a loop.......Come back, Peter Simon, all is forgiven....

      i think her name is Jessica Foley,she started off working on The Lounge, she was irritating then and is even worse now,she has been at gems about a year but no sign of her gia yet.
      Personally i dont watch anymore and i cant stand the presenters too much tosh, hype and shouting. Gems have had complaints about the Christmas in July carp on their facebook page, but doubt they will take any notice and carry on regardless as normal.I think the schedule is awful, one boring showcase after another,if the metal weight and the stones get any smaller you will need a magnifying glass to even see them, they seem to be morphing into Rocks and co and seem to be taking the same line as marks and spencer by taking no notice of anything the customers are telling them, until presumably they sink slowly into the mire.

      I am so sick of Tanzanite. Then there are the whole days of Tanzanite. Just all so boring.

      Peter Simon - he did make me laugh!

      Thanks for her name missmarple. I have not looked at their facebook page lately, think I will go and have a peep. There seems to be a lot of shows lately with very expensive gems on. I agree about M&S too they just don't listen to customers at all.

      I used to love watching this channel for a change but not any more, it's gone really downhill imo. They used to show, on screen, the gram weight of the gold but I don't see that any more, only the carat weight of the gem. They do still do some nice pieces but the waffle is too much for me.

      Has Adina only the one top?

      Couldn't believe all the Christmas hats and even a tree!......and as you say, for what? Nothing special in any way that I could see. Same old stuff, different day, but with a hat and tree!

      The do show the gold weight but blink and you miss it.

      Yes Adina only has the one top/dress. Oh and hair like the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz.
