      I thought I would present this review since the gift giving holiday season is upon us and jewelry is a popular gift.

      I have bought several pieces of jewelry from GemsTV and other jewelry shopping channels. I’ve found that I’ve made more returns to GemsTV than any other company.

      Here’s my opinion on GemsTV.

      Pros:

      -Quick and economical shipping via UPS.

      -Good accessibility and ease of Customer Service if needed.

      -Offers some good prices on the more common, less costly gemstones.

      -Most gemstones are of acceptable quality and cut. (Most) -Has a decent return policy if you don’t use it too much.

      -Can get some good deals during this recession.

      Cons:

      -A lot of the jewelry is enhanced with rhodium material rather than using a decent quantity of diamonds.

      -Diamond


      accent stones in nearly all pieces of jewelry I received have been so tiny you have to strain your eye to see them embedded in the Rhodium plating. Gives ring a cheap look.

      -Regular graded Diamonds I have received from them, even if they are the main featured stone in a ring or earrings, have been pretty included. If looking at the stones indoors, they take on the disappointing tone of rock salt. It takes a very bright light, such as Department Store special lighting or bright sunlight, to make them shine and become more transparent and color reflective. I paid $350 for 1/3 carat of rock salt in a ring that was breathtaking on TV.

      -What you see on TV is not what ...


      • you get. I have returned stones for reasons of not having any color at all to having so much color that the stone looks fake and lacks luster.

        -If you make too many returns to this company, they will blacklist you and ban you from ordering in the future.

        -Customer Service agents can sometimes be a bit pushy in trying to convince you to keep a piece rather than return it.

        -Beware; the Presenters will tell you there are no filters on their cameras (which alters or enhances the gemstone color) but if you watch at the beginning of a presentation, you will notice different colors switching and reflecting off the white gold surface or the host’s tabletop. It looks like a colorwheel or colored

        lamps shining down from the overhead. So, no filters on camera but something is going on up above so be careful when purchasing diamonds.

        -The gold band width usually runs thin on their ladies rings. They skimp on the gold.

        -Sometimes their items are very overpriced. Do your homework, shop around and compare.

        -Don’t actually give you 30 days to return because 30 days starts from the date of purchase and you lose days due to handling and shipping.

        And, last word of advice: If you do not like the piece you purchased, send it back (at your cost) earlier rather than later. They are very strict about getting it back within 30 days of your initial purchase. Get a Delivery Confirmation for your returns so you have proof of return to them within the 30 day window.

    7-31-09 I have the by-pass diamond ring you showed last week and or week before last. I have lost two diamonds out of it. One white and one black. Can you replace them and how much is this going to cost?
