    Gemporia warned yet again by the ASA...........

    It’s clear that they don’t give a toss what warnings they get. They are going to carry on seriously misleading people. And does anyone know why she continually talks about Golconda diamonds when selling Argyle. They were Indian diamonds as far as I know and if there’s any connection I can’t...

    Gemporia warned yet again by the ASA...........

    I was amazed to hear Adina say tonight on the 10 o’clock hourthat Argyle diamonds are far higher on the MOH scale than other diamonds. What on earth. Surely all diamonds are 10 on the MOH scale. Will they ever stop.

    I ALWAYS go to Cookson gold for chains and findings. Nowhere else comes close to the value they offer.

    I’ve got that lovely Rachel G bangle too. Think she said the stones are supposed to depict a river running. Love it. As a rule I find TJC are better quality than Gemporia but Gemporia used to have more variety . Not any more sadly.

    Who has had Gemporia jewellery valued

    Do you not think you are being a little hard on yourself. Going back a few years they did sell a little lower than high street jewellers and had more unusual things so you probably got things that you enjoy cheaper than if you went to town to buy. I’m sure you bought because you liked and not to...

    Who has had Gemporia jewellery valued

    I know the jeweller who I ask to do valuations.i always ask him did I get it at a reasonable price or as good or better than if I went into town today to get something similar. That’s really what I want to know. If he said it was a rip off I’d return. I’m not intending to sell so the resale...

    Who has had Gemporia jewellery valued

    When I started buying from them I brought a diamond item to be valued. He valued it at somewhat more than I paid. Maybe 10-20%. Certainly nothing like they claim. This was a number of years ago. As the standard has gone down so much I reckon it’d be a good idea to do it again if I get an...

    I think the feedback is getting through

    They had quartzite jade on again I think yesterday if memory serves.

    Ludicrous Prices

    I had a look in and saw Angeline flogging a multi sapphire ring for £699 which I have seen previously for 425. Nice little profit. Maybe Angeline thinks she is so adored by her fans that they will pay ANYTHING. I hope she’s not right. If so I can only wonder why.

    TJC £1 Auctions

    Yes it is just for more expensive items.. Obviously if they are cheap items then it’s not important to them to push up the price. I’m baffled as to how you saw a message quoting a reserve price as they go to great lengths to maintain that there is no reserve price. As for the same initials...

    TJC £1 Auctions

    They have had many many complaints about these auctions. When they used to have a customer forum they had complaints all the time. They are blatantly dishonest. Lots of the bids are not real bids at all. If you look regularly you’ll get to know the initials of these. If after all the obstacles...

    Gemporia - ASA 'final warning' - AT LAST!

    It was towards the end of the 9-10 hour. I wrote the message straight after. Couldn’t believe it after everything.

    Gemporia - ASA 'final warning' - AT LAST!

    Anyone else see Adina on now flogging Paraiba tourmaline. She said twice “natural “ Paraiba with no heat treatment. That’s not what it said on the details where it said H. They just can’t help themselves.

    The Ethiopian ones are lovely but I’m always afraid they will change colour as they are so absorbent.

    Gem Collector Prices

    Thank you . It’s really great to have the opinion of people who collect stones. You are concentrating on the actual gem. I missed the rubies but I saw you all seemed to like their coober Pedy opal pendants with the darkish backgrounds so I bought one of those. I don’t believe a word that the...

    Gem Collector Prices

    What do the collectors who know about gems think of their purple sapphires which are being shown on gem collector at the moment. I know it is an expensive stone so are their prices ok .

    Gemporia still sinking

    I couldn’t agree more. Was watching gems the other evening and it occurred to me that their sales spiel now has nothing to do with having something pretty to wear and enjoy and all to do with “investment” prospects. I think there’s a place in jewellery collections for all sorts of items from...

    Gemporia still sinking

    Adina is on at the moment waxing lyrical about what they are calling “paraiba topaz” and showing the usual pictures of high end Paraiba tourmaline for huge prices. Bad enough you might think but when I looked them up online THEY'RE COATED. Surely that’s not legal.

    Lyndsay ...

    I saw some of that. Isn’t it supposed to be 999 silver as opposed to 925.
