    Sounds to me like she's sending all her old co-presenters a message, guess she's not bitter then.

    I agree. It reads more like a cross between a job advert (for presenters with no previous experience of jewellery channels) and a Keep Out sign (for all other presenters, especially those she knows).

    My wife loves her jewels but she simply can't get her head round this channel.

    Where do they get their initial valuations from?? Do they actually think people are going to spend 20K when they're going to reduce the price down to 49 in a minute?

    The main reason to watch is to see the fake shock & mock disbelief displayed by Victoria Burton when the price goes down to something borderline reasonable!!

    All the jewellery channels have these overinflated start prices - they're meaningless, and should be ignored.

    IMO, when you look at what you're actually getting for your money with Rocks & Co, there are some pretty good deals.

    They always say it is a random computer generated price, what more can they say?

    I've never seen this happen and I agree with Miss Magpie, I've had some fabulous deals from this channel, though their prices do seem to have risen substantially since the New Year.

    OK I'm prepared to admit that 20K down to 49 is a bit of an exagerration but I saw something the other day over 50K at the start come down to about 4K.

    The reduced price seems to me to be aroud 8-10% of the outrageous "random" start price - and what's the point of having a random price anyway?

    They have to have a price to start the auction from and as far as I know, they're not allowed to quote any valuation prices they may have, on air.
