VICTORIA WIECK DESIGNS LOOKING CHEAP!
I Feel that the latest creastions of VW are looking like cheap knockoffs and low quality looking. They look gaudy in a very bad way….they do not look like Bev Hills merchandise as she claims, maybe she’s getting bored of designing to HSN
IM NOT SURE, BUT HER OLDER RINGS LOOKED THE BEST. NOW ITS JUST SOMETHING I COULD FIND AT CHEAP DEPARTMENT STORES MADE OF SS OR WORST.
TOO BAD. I USED TO LIKE IT.
I purchased a ring from her about 17 years ago (1999). It it silver with a round diamond (not real one…cubic? …maybe) any how it is so lovely. When my last son was young I was at his baseball game and this elder woman just went crazy over the ring. She said to me, "Honey I just love that ring. Is this an heirloom from your grandmother or someone else? I know it is probably an Estate piece." Told her "No…it’s not real. It’s not an Estate piece nor from my grandmother. Bought it from HSN VW is the designer." Took a little convincing…she could not believe the ring wasn’t old and at that ….real diamond. I love this piece. VW does have gaudy jewelry….but; that is the style she portrays and also what is in style. It seems to sell well. All to their own liking. CHOICES, PEOPLE, AND OPINIONS IS WHAT MAKES THE WORLD!
I am very happy with my VW rings and her watches. I would never say her pieces are cheap looking. Her designs are lovely and well made in my opinion. I just received her heart watch a few weeks ago and I am finding it is my go to watch.
I have always enjoyed Victoria Wieck’s pieces. I have purchased many of her rings and continue to do so. In fact, I just received two of her rings in the mail last week. They are just lovely.:smileyhappy:
Everybody has there favorite jewelry vendor.I like King Baby jewelry, not all of it’s my taste, but it’s substantial and well made and made in the USA. Emma style in nice, but why all the crystals? Do women really desire all that sparkle?. Not a fan of Costume or tone anything gold or silver, or vermill jewelry.But yet there are many who like the items I listed. Over 25 years ago, I purchase VW hoops earring for my sister, she still wears them.Buy what you like.
I’ve been purchasing VW pieces for years. Rings, watches, bracelets, earrings, necklaces etc. There has only been one item I’ve ever had to return. The “Floating Ice” watches she did a while back were the most beautiful watches I’ve ever seen (see photo). I got them in all 3 color choices offered…Goldtone, Silvertone and Rosetone. They are simply spectacular. Like with any designer, there are certain styles I don’t like so stay away from those. Yet, most of which VW offers I, indeed, enjoy. I’ve also ‘gifted’ many of her pieces to squeals of delight! Everyone has different likes and dislikes. :heart::womanhappy:
I have googled her and if she is a real beverly hills designer she has no store or website, she only sells on HSN. Jean Dousset has a store and website, Carol Brodie really worked for Harry Winston, JOan Boyce has two expensive stores, but Victoria Wieck is not a high end designer. That being said plenty of people seeem to love her pieces and thats all that matter I guess. It’s not my taste and anything I tried I sent back because it did not look rich to me.
OMG which one did you not like??? Maybe I missed that gaudy piece. I have not seen any, not even one item from V Wieck that I truly did not like. I liked some a lot more than others but I do not remember even item I disliked.
Sorry you are not happy with your purchase.
My VW purchases (not the TS) have always been reliable, quality pieces.
I have her TS, the Mexican Fire Opal, and I must say it is gorgeous and with my untrained eye not fake, gaudy, or cheap in any way. Now I don’t own any other of her peices and some I have looked at have just silly big stones, but the TS ring is just beautiful.
