    Pre-orders are SOOO annoying!

    Gems must have worked out that there is some commercial benefit in pre-orders; but as a customer, they are hopeless. Many items don’t even get presented properly on screen, because they’ve sold out in advance; while as a customer, if you don’t want to miss out you’re forced to buy the item...

    Presenter somewhat... over-excited?

    I switched on TJC at around lunchtime today, and couldn’t help noticing that the presenter, Chloe, seemed somewhat... beside herself? Not saying more that that, as I don’t want to get sued! I normally quite like her presenting style, even if she is always somewhat effusive; but this was...

    Is it just me...

    ...or does anyone else think this pendant looks like a loo seat?!

    Steve Bennett & Glenn Lehrer

    Finding the 'bromance' quite entertaining! I take most things the presenters say with a pinch of salt ('cos their job is to make me part with my money), but I reckon these two guys genuinely are good buddies.

    Rainbow moonstone

    Two hour show tomorrow (Saturday)! Hooray! As many people on the forum know by know, I am unhealthily obsessed with this glorious gemstone, and Rocks & Co's rainbow moonstone is the best anywhere. All I need is John Scott to be presenting the show, and my life will be complete...

    Screw back earrings

    I don't often shop with TJC, but I recently bought two pairs of absolutely beautiful 9k white gold diamond earrings from them. They have screw backs, which I like in many ways because they are secure and make the earrings fit snugly; but unfortunately I've found that the screw thread scratches...

    Another great purchase!

    I had this in my basket for about 3 months as I wasn't sure if I spend almost 400 quid on a SILVER ring (even with almost two and a half carats of diamonds), but I'm so glad I took the plunge as it's a real cracker...

    New purchases...?

    C'mon, then, what's everyone been buying?! Gems are doing some great designs at the moment, and since they're the fasted growing company etc. etc. I reckon someone must be buying something! Let's have some links and pictures, like the 'old days' of the forum...

    Silver clearance is addictive!

    Why am I so addicted to the (mostly) silver clearance on at the moment? I know that, while the prices are fair and are a lot cheaper than the gold pieces, most of the prices aren't really objectively all that cheap compared with other channels that sell a lot of silver (including Rocks & Co's...

    OMG Rainbow moonstone

    Just thought I'd take a moment to wax lyrical about my all-time favourite gemstone, since it's been back on air recently (and some lovely sparklies arrived at my door today). Rocks & Co's faceted rainbow moonstone is completely unlike anything you have ever seen anywhere else (except...

    No more "chat"?

    Just heard John Scott mention that the presenters are not supposed to do "chat" any more - I presume he means with the viewers through text and e-mail. I had noticed that Rocks & Co is not as "chatty" as before, and it's a real pity. That kind of interaction was fun and an encouragement to...

    Do Gems actually want customers, or not?

    I saw a Glenn Lehrer ring which I was interested in purchasing, but by the time I got online it was only available in a size 5, so I didn't put it in my basket. Subsequently, I saw that it was available online in my size (7), so I contacted Gems to ask whether I could purchase it at the on-air...

    Taj Mahal Collection

    Did anyone see this new collection about 10 days ago? I caught the tail end of it when the items went on the web for an hour at the end of the auctions, and I bought a ring which turned out to be absolutely beautiful - covered in very sparkly chocolate diamonds, a real vintage look...

    Does anybody know if Gems are able to do requests? I've seen a few pieces I really like on the website but, since the normal web prices are usually at least twice the on-air prices, it would be madness to by them off the web. Am I right in thinking they won't sell the item at the previous on-air...

    Very happy with Glenn Lehrer ring

    My Glenn Lehrer amethyst TorusRing ring arrived today, and I'm delighted with it - beautiful and unusual (with definitely NO chips or cracks). A lovely piece of craftsmanship.

    'Disney Couture' - Give me strength! Enamelled ears? On a (fake) pearl necklace? For heavens' sake!

    Very impressed with these earrings

    These earrings, when I put them in my basket, were very much an afterthought: At £24.99 on air I really wasn't expecting much, so I was surprised at just how excellent they are. The tourmalines are very well matched with every one of them...

    What's the point of that?

    I thought these birthstone necklace and earring kits looked really nice: ...UNTIL I realised that the gemstone beads were already joined together in a chain, and all you have to do is attach the clasp and the earring fittings! C'mon...

    A load of bull?

    Look at the description on this!! :grin:

    Seriously fed up!

    I'm a regular customer of Rocks & Co, and when I order gemstone jewellery from any channel I often order 3 of the same item, bearing in mind the natural variation of gemstones, so I can then choose the one which has the best colour, clarity, etc. So I recently ordered some Welo opal earrings...
