Discover my Gem Day picks!


Lapis Baguette Cut Bangle 9ct Gold - 691142 Hi there,

Just wanted to remind you all that it's Gem Day tomorrow. I'll be kicking off the day at midnight with gem expert Guy Clutterbuck, who's a mine of information – quite literally as he often goes down them in search of new gems!

When I was asked to pick my favourite piece for the launch, I chose this fabulous lapis lazuli bangle. Not only does in look great on, but it'll go very nicely with the Today's Special Value too.

Floating Sapphire & Diamond Pendant - 692974 I'll also be hosting the Gem Day Grand Finale with Dale, which should be good fun! So lucky me, I get a second jewellery pick! I've gone for this lovely floating sapphire pendant which I think is really unusual, I've never seen anything quite like it before.

Don't forget to tune in all day to see more fantastic gem jewellery, and do please call through to the studio, I always love to hear from you.

Till next time,
Julia. xx.

P.S. Take a look at the other presenters' picks for Gem Day – hope you like them!

    Hi Julia
    Can”t wait for Gems day tomorrow,I have a friend here who is mad about Gems, I told her about QVC and she became a member 2 month ago, and she has bought 7 rings so far. So tomorrow we are spending a few hours together in front of the TV watching QVC, and hope to buy something nice. I love Blue Topaz. so I”ll be looking for a ring tomorrow. See you all tomorrow. ENJOY. Tomorrow QVC will win over the Spanish sunshine.

    Hi Julia thoroughly enjoying gem day,bought the TSV so cant wait for that to arrive. Hope you dont mind me asking, but you seem very approachable, i cant help but notice that Ann Dawson hasnt been on screen for a long time. I seem to recall one of the other presenters saying that she has been poorly, i do hope this isn’t true, and if it is that she’s well on the road to recovery. On her blog several people including myself have left messages asking after her. Please pass on our best wishes and tell her we hope to see her back on air soon. Lots of love Bea xxx

    Hello Girls … Magda I hope you enjoyed Gem Day – if you watched the Finale with Dale and myself we had lots of London Blue pieces for you to choose from – I hope you found one you liked? Hi Bea, glad you managed to get the TSV before it sold out – it really is a beautiful piece of Lapis, great colour. We are hoping Ann will be back in early June – she had a problem with her shoulder that needed an operation – she probably checks her blog, so if you have left a message I’m sure she will have picked it up. Hello Margaret – I totally agree with your sentiment and did ask the question about having roses on air, but the decision was made not to. I hope you approved of my gesture having the rose on the desk, even though it was a little late in the day.
    speak soon

    Hi Julia
    You were very jolly and funny on Quacker Factory this afternoon. Your enthusiasm is so infectious, I look forward to watching you presenting but although your photo of your family at the highland wedding was lovely what a disappointment not to see yourself and the rest of your family at the gathering, I do hope you are able to show more pics.
    Look forward to your next programme.
    Maureen (Edinburgh)

    Hi Maureen, if you’re a fan of Quacker Factory we have a Today’s Special Value coming up Wednesday Midnight into Thursday. I really enjoyed the show last week, Jenny is a lovely guest. Re the wedding photos I wasn’t in any of the ‘family group’ pictures as I am extended family – Rachel being my niece. I’ll see if anyone took any pictures of me – I was keeping a low profile
