Committed to adding sparkle to home shopping, Rocks and Co. offers viewers the best of a ‘traditional’ high street experience - fixed prices, excellent sales service and no pressure to buy, all with the added convenience of 24-hour online shopping and speedy home delivery.<br /><br />“Rocks & Co. is a purveyor of quality jewellery and we’ll be selling with integrity”, said Managing Director, Chris Parsons, “We won’t be resorting to gimmicks such as falling auctions, just offering great value on great jewellery.” When asked whether the prevalence of jewellery auction shopping channels indicates a consumer preference, Parsons responded, “Given recent changes to the ASA regulations governing reverse auctions, I think that format has run its course; it’s more the case of there not being an alternative and we fill the gap. If you’re passionate about quality jewellery, we’re definitely the channel for you.” <br /><br />The Rocks & Co. team includes internationally renowned gemstone experts and jewellery designers who understand fashion, beauty and style. Rocks & Co. aim to bring consumers an exquisite range of jewellery, including exclusive collections that cover every taste from classic to contemporary. <br /><br />Victoria Burton, experienced presenter and gemstone expert. Commenting on the exciting launch of Rocks & Co. Victoria said “We’ll bring a breath of fresh air to buying jewellery. Quality is a given, but viewers also want jewellery savvy advice on the right products for them, the latest fashion trends as well as a genuine appreciation of gemstones. I am a big believer that shopping should be fun and fabulous. The expertise and passion of Rocks & Co. makes for a truly unique shopping experience”. Don’t be tempted to think this format will be staid, fun and engaging discussion will be a hallmark of the channel, including celebrity guest presenters, including the likes of John Scott, of ‘This Morning’ fame and Jilly Johnson."</em>

Wasn't it Vicki Burton who said she would not entertain applications from previous TV jewellery presenters? Is Barry working at Rocks & Co...thought he was with Rocks TV? This is becoming seriously confusing :confused:.

Just clearing a few things up...

Hi all...

I just thought I would write a quick message to clear things up, as it would appear that this issue is becoming seriously confusing!

I currently have no working connection whatsoever with rocks andco or jml.

I am currently employed by www.rocks.tv part of the Coloured Rocks Group - where I present a live auction of gemstone jewellery from 17:00 till 23:00.

I do however wish Caroline all the best with this career move and every sucess for the future (I will call soon! - promise :) )

If they won't be resorting to selling with gimmicks then they may have to surgically remove Caroline's look of shock when she sees the selling price :D.

Thanks for coming on here and introducing yourself Andrew. I look forward to seeing the new channel.
Perhaps Vicky B has been on a gems course since we saw her last and as Caroline will be working with fixed prices, hopefully there will be no need for acting.
Mind you, she was by no means the only guilty one, especially now with the higher prices many of the presenters look permanently amazed at the 'low,low prices'

When Victoria worked for Gems she (they all at one point or another) went over to Thailand and did some gemstone studying, think each one of them specialised in certain stones.
