Does anyone still watch rocks and co tv ? I turned it off ages ago, load of boring screaming nobody's and poor quantity too 1 piece of jewellery and it's the sample no other channel does this. Hopefully the channel end up like Bidtv extinct.
Thank you for your kind wishes historymystery. More than anything, I'm bored sitting around.
I think all the presenters are awful. There seems to have been many changes. Although I didn't particularly warm to the Diniz brothers, I find Don Kogan positively frightening. He's like some big bully, shouting his instructions to buy, buy, buy. Debbie Cavill referring to her daughter as "Pie" is ridiculous. What is she, six? Grow up the pair of you. One thing that made me switch off instantly was watching the dreadful Vicki sneeze into her hand whilst wearing a ring. She then announced that this was the actual ring you would receive! Oh no. I don't think so love. Gross!
Don't watch it, it's one of those deceitful company's that do a start from price that they pick out of fresh air, then drop it dramatically to make it look like you're getting a bargain, well I say bargain but just flicked over and the prices are absolutely ridiculous! Shop anywhere else or down the high street and you'd get much, much more for your money. I've noticed they use those special filters as well to make the jewellery sparkle more. Would never buy from this company.
Shopperholic, couldn't put it better. If you buy from them, beware - if you need to return anything, my experience was they sit on your money as long as possible, and the 'flippin thing was faulty, so it was their fault!!! The only way I got the money returned was to simply bombard them with e-mails night and day, demanding my money back after at least a month of hanging on to it. Presenter staff come and go (unless they are Debby Cavill's kids!!), which is always a bad sign, and the only presenters who stay the course are The Shouty Blondes (new name for a pop group, methinks?)- one of which is the dreadful fog-horn at low tide voice of Vicki - and John Scott. How he's hanging on, I haven't a clue! The prices are ludicrous, and if my example was anything to go by, the quality is terrible. Buyer beware!!
History I'm glad you got your money back, you shouldn't have to had bombarded them so yes, just shows you how dodgy this company is.
I got ripped off by a shopping channel called Auction World about twelve years ago for £800, my husband bought me a one carat diamond ring for our twentieth wedding anniversary because we couldn't afford one when we got engaged, but when it arrived it was like crushed ice so I returned it, they went "bust" in the few days it took me to return it, but they must have known they were going under but took people's money anyway, and they knew they were sending dodgy jewellery out too. I never got that back and it eats away at me to this day, I would hate anyone to go through what I went through.
I'm a great believer in Karma too History. Don't know how they sleep at night but yep, what goes around comes around eh? :mysmilie_508:
Oh Gawd, I flicked over a while back and there on Rocks was Vicki, also known as "I'm a screaming Banshee on Helium". Just at that moment my husband came into the room and said "where's that horrible racket coming from?" He thought the TV was on the blink, it was that bad! How she can say she also doubles as a "singer" outside of Rocks I cannot imagine - to my knowledge, professional singers are trained to use their voices properly, otherwise throat problems would soon result. She has a voice like someone scraping a cheesegrater with a steel knitting needle. Tonight we had "I can't BELIEVEEEEEEEEEEEEE our prices, if it was just one pendant....but these are EARRINGSSSSSSSSSSS!" - this was then followed by the hair flicking, the fake open-mouthed amazement, the hands flying about as though she was doubling as a semaphore signaller in the Royal Navy, and such an enormous round eyed-look that I wondered if her eyeballs were going to fall out and bounce across the table.
Debbie Cavill was at the side of her, guesting on the show, and also joining in the squealing, but at a slightly lower decibel level (speak up, Debs, we can't hear you over Vicki's screaming). It has crossed my mind that Vicki might be a clockwork creation being worked by Debby Cavill - if she would only turn around we could see if there's a wind-up key in her back, and the 2 of them appear together so often. I think Vicki must have been conceived during the old Carry-On film "Carry on Screaming". This is one channel past it's sell-by date.
