    Yep, totally agree and i know that they have had the same complaints of rainbow sapphire where people send them back because the item they received was not the same , as in three of the same colours etc. On a different note i have just flicked through and honesty i dont know how anyone watches anymore, Victoria Norris sounds like her life is in danger, so overly agressive and stressed out, its awful, surely that cant be enjoyable to watch on any level.

    Anna, say no more, one's on it's way to you as we speak! Now, do be careful with it, as it's a real collectors item and will probably be worth about a million in a few years time.....

    Love it! That's JUST what she sounds like, and her body language, too: all agitated, wriggling around on her chair, waving her arms around and bug-eyed. She looks like she's got fleas at times, or something else equally unpleasant! I am fast developing the "grab the remote and switch over" technique when I flick over and see her on there, very aggressive and dislikeable. Also, is it me or has "Ang" disappeared from the 11am-3pm slot lately? I could have missed her - as I only flick over a few times a day for a minute or so - but she always used to boast that it was "her" own timeslot, even though she shared it with Ellis (Angeline seems to think she owns the company anyway).

    I dread to think the pressure they are under with the sales manager permanently banging on down their earpiece, Victoria used to be one of the quieter ones, you know, back in the good old days before they started SHOUTING and SCREAMING at the customers like banshees.

    Yeah, it's usually a throwaway line, such as "your ring/necklace will be unique, the colours will vary" - but the devil's in the detail, what you DON'T expect, as you say, is that the item you get will not have an iota of the sparkle, clarity or colour variations of the piece they show. To me, this does border on the dishonest - the ring in the showcase should be of equal quality, clarity and colour variation, and they should, if necessary, show 2 or 3 of the same rings, to illustrate that. In my opinion, it's a daft strategy that they are following - with more and more people sending back items that they are not happy with, they aren't going to be re-ordering in a hurry, so effectively you are losing some of your customer base, and some long-standing customers at that. I used to buy quite a bit from them, but haven't bought anything for well over a year, nearer two - and I'm sure I'm not alone! The "collectors" they keep rattling on about are only going to be happy with good-quality items, not the rejects at the back of the market stall.

    An auction just run I think crystallises my issues now with a lot of Gems pieces (apart from inadequate metal weights & lack of any design). This multi-colour tourmaline ring:

    The colours are great but there is absolutely NO guarantee that your ring will look anything like it. Some Feefo reviews for similar pieces shout about single colours or dull colours. IMHO, if you're going to show a piece, clamour on about the specific colours in the one that you're showing, you should only make enough rings that match what you're marketing. Otherwise it's no different to the old market traders that used to pass off shoddy versions of what they used to shout about ("bait & switch"). To be fair, the web page details do say that colours may vary but not once did the presenter say this.

    I will have to remember to give them a good ole clean before getting them valued, don't want any stray nasal hairs getting in the way of the value price.

    Aha! You're right. One such complaint just posted on Feefo. They're right. It does smell of mis-selling.
