Colleen’s Designer Gallery Jewelry
Is it just me or has her collection become boring? It seems it’s the same designs/vendors over and over, only the colors change. 🙁 Am I missing something? I used to buy thousands of dollars of jewelry from HSN but just realized I’ve transferred my money to Evine. Their breadth of selection and quality currently blow HSN out of the water.
I think Colleen’s designer gallery jewelry has a very dated, old look to it. The jewelry isn’t stylish or chic at all, and it’s very expensive. Years ago, my grandmother purchased this exact kind of jewelry at much lower prices when I was a kid. I keep hearing her say phrases like, “so affordable” and “unique pieces.” I just don’t see it. But somewhere among the millions there must be many people who like and buy this jewelry, though. She keeps presenting it over and over again. Give the people what they want, I guess.
I think the majority of Hsn’s audience is composed of older females. I guess they’re emotionally suckered into buying this jewelry because it reminds them of their youth.
Wow. I can’t believe what I just saw. It appears HSN is cannibalising its own product lines! Watching Colleen’s jewelry show today, she showed a gemstone ring with halo that is a rip-off of a Carole Brody Rarities ring, some emerald and white zircon drop earrings that also steal from Rarities, etc. LOL. I guess HSN is making it easier to buy “designer looks” at a more affordable price at the expense of their own designer lines.
Sadly I must agree but it’s been a few years since I’ve been excited about Colleen’s line either.
Agree–a lot of the CL items seem repetetive or very tradtional…almost dull. Spice it up some times! Also agreed that Evine has some different looks and different gemstones to choose from. I just got a great peridot solitaire and chrome diopside eternity band ring set for a great price. Let’s jazz it up or bring in some new, quality brands!
I don’t know. I am leery about jewelry from those other places.
I’ve read alot of complaints about lower quality for those lower prices……
Disappointed in the jewelry offerings and the prices are off the wall. That TS looked sketchy, the stones had a yellow tinge. At $160 It was too spendy for me to bite. Himalayan Gems used to bring substantial pieces with lovely settings. now its all shiny smooth stamped out silver. that big saddle ring looked like something Jay King would sell. Why all the clutchback earrings ? They are hard to put on and uncomfortable!
HA! I had the exact same thoughts! I only watched a few minutes of the show and thought, “She says the same things over and over again. And the jewelry is all the same, nothing new or exciting.” Somthing needs to be upgraded. It’s got to be Colleen or the jewelry, maybe both.
I love JTV jewelry. The designs are beautiful and very unique.
I agree with you! I actually find the jewelry on HSN quite boring, and I have not purchased any for a very long time!!!! I do however purchase from other channels.. The jewelry, however , is not the only product line that is boring, for example, the beauty report needs revamping also. Same same. I do not purchase for myself from HSN, what I do buy are gifts that people want. I spend my money elsewhere now and that says alot, considering I have been a customer for 24 years!!!! All in all most of the hosts and a few vendors, I find boring, JMO!!!
I thought the same thing, and I only watched a few minutes. Of course I have been watching Evine’s Gem week. They have many vendors with unique pieces and really good prices. I find myself purchasing more from Evine these days.
