Double the fun with Friday’s Honora necklace TSV


Floating pearl necklaces

Hi everyone, Ralph from Honora here,

Just wanted to tell you a little about Friday's Honora TSV! In Honora's 65 year history, we've had a lot of looks come and go, but none has been as popular or as impacting as our floating pearl necklace.

We wanted to bring back these delicate illusion necklaces in a big way, so we decided to double the fun.

Tomorrow (Friday 15th July) we'll be bringing you a Today's Special Value offer with two pearl necklaces: one in eye-catching solids and another in exciting multi-colour combinations.

Our classic white pearl necklace has been paired with our Tuxedo combination of black, white and grey; our bold indigo necklace will be offered with our new favorite, Peacock; vibrant violet pearls will be available along with our pastel wildflower colors, and striking cherry pearls will accompany our new red, white and blue pearl combination Americana (or should I say Union Jack?).

Classic pearl studs in exciting new colours

While on the subject of old favourites, we are also bringing back our classic set of seven pearl studs in an entirely new assortment of colours. Many of you have been requesting this for some time now and we are delighted to bring this set back in white, black, cherry, teal, indigo, gold and rose.

These colours are the perfect complement to all of Friday's Today's Special Value necklace sets and offer the right mixture of both classic and bold pearl colours. Much like our floating pearl necklace, the original set were easily the most popular earrings offered in our company's history and we can't wait to bring them back in a brand new way to QVC UK.

It's always fun to make what was once old new again and I am thrilled for these long-time favourites to return. I hope you join me from midnight on Friday 15th July as we kick off a brand new Today's Special Value offer with a price that is so good, it has to be an illusion.

Best regards,

Ralph Rossini

    Hi Ralph you mentioned before you were working on a cuff watch, have you any idea when it will be available ? I just love all my honora pearls and a watch would just compliment all my sets.
    Kind Regards,

    Have just read the details of the next TSV. Will order all of them as they are my absolute favourites from over 100 pieces of Honora that I have. As well as which, a huge thank you Ralph for bringing the Americana. Sorry that I hassled you so much but having seen this on the US QVC it is sure to be a winner. Take care and many thanks for all the modern colour ways for pearls that you and your team bring us.

Everything I ever wanted and more regarding the colours.I have the other 5 floating pearl necklaces so really looking forward to the new colours. I would also like to thank Ralph for the Americana. I saw this colour combination last year on QVC.USA and have spoken to Ralph a couple of times to request this. Its good to know that big business does keep promises.

    Hi Ralph,
    Earlier in the year there was a TSV on QVC US (Item No J157785). It was a beautiful necklace and earrings set and I would absolutely love to have it. I wonder if you could tell me if you have any plans to bring the set to us here in the UK or if it possible to order items direct from Honora. Also, as red, white and blue are the colours of our flag too, I wonder if you will be bringing anymore of the Americano items to us.

    I am looking forward so much to Honora Pearls @ 12mn. I always treat myself to something nice for my Birthday which is on 18th July. GREAT timing, Ralph. Thank you.

    FANTASTIC. I will be tuning in and staying up until midnight, as I have been waiting for some new colours to add to my four floating necklaces. Hopefully there will be one in purple and blue shades.

    REALLY hope that these necklaces can be worn by those of us that need a 50cm length as I have wanted one for so long. I have some interchangeable earring from you on the euro wire and received so many compliments on them that I would just love the necklace to go with them. Your pearls are just beautiful.
    See you at midnight!

    Hi Ralph. Could you please bring some of your ‘Girl’ size bracelets that you have on your US website please? Having a slim wrist I find all bracelets much too large or too loose so these would be ideal. I am sure there are other petite ladies who would welcome these additions to your QVC UK range.
    Just love all your pearls and am a sucker for your shepherd hook drop earrings as they always so admired and very comfortable.
    Warmest wishes.

    Hi Ralph – just to say am really looking forward to the shows and all the goodies that you bring to us. I am a big Honora fan and your shows on QVC are my favourite. Love the range, gorgeous quality and diversity of your beautiful pearls. The value for money is exception.
    With kind regards

    Hi Ralph, I have so many of your necklaces and earrings and love them all. I would love to have an illusion necklace of larger pearls, perhaps bigger than the last “South Sea” black Tin Cup necklace.
    Best wishes

    When I met you at the Honora workshop in 2009, I asked if you could please bring back the floating pearl necklaces as they are so beautiful and versatile. I even posted a comment on this page during your last visit asking if you could please bring them back, both in the single colours and the new colour combinations. I can’t begin to describe how delighted I am to see what the TSV is tonight – two beautiful necklaces in the single and colour combinations I have been waiting for. Ralph, Honora and QVC, thank you so much for hearing me. I cannot wait for midnight!!!!

    Hi Ralph
    Once again thank you for your beautiful pearl Jewellery and can I say that it is always a pleasure to see you on QVC during your visits. I was lucky enough to speak to you a few years ago during a previous floating pearl TSV, as my first honora piece was a peach colour floating necklace back in 1998 and I still wear it and it looks like new.
    Since then I have purchased over 90 pieces of Honora and still love the jewellery. But while you are here, can I PLEASE give you my shopping list (suggestions) for your future shows.
    1 ) Can we have more Apricot, Mocha, Caramel and Melon pearls in your designs.
    2 ) Earrings to match the previous Apricot, Mocha and Caramel necklace and bracelet set (This was a fanastic combination)
    3 ) Floating necklace in the above colours (Please please please)
    4 ) Additional Colours in your Honora 11-12m CFW Button Pearl Earrings (699633) – i.e can we have the same colours as the US please – Melon, Teal, Cherry and Silver. (I know that I shouldn’t be looking – but I like to give my bank manager and postman a warning, if I think I am going to be very busy when you visit)
    I could go on and on, but I think that is enough to keep you going for the moment.
    Thank you Ralph, Have a safe journey home and looking forward to your next trip already.
    Mandy – Cardiff

    You did it again. I swore I was not going to buy any more pearls then I saw the Tuxedo Silver necklace that goes with my tuxedo silver earings and ……. another coronary for the bank manager!! Only ever once been disappointed with any Honora product, although I do find sometimes that earing fixings are not asd secure as they might be. On the subject to earigs, please could we have some multi colour coin drops next time you come .. please! Oh and how about a springtime mixture..pale pink and very delicate pale green with white!

    Ralph a post script to my entry above. I was thinking in the bath—- why not a necklace for each season of the year- Spring as suggested above, Summer Teal, Rose and Amethyst, Autumn (ok Fall in the US) Melon, Chocolate and Cream and Winter Indigo, Black and White. Would go down really well with all of us ladies who have had our “colours” done!!!

    You have all given me (and by me I mean Jennie, Julie, L’array and the rest of the design team) a lot to consider! I’m going to make sure that everyone sees these requests and I hope that we can to bring many of them to the UK. I know I said it on air, but suggestions like these really do help us make better decisions on what we design for QVC. I really appreciate all of the time and all of the kind words. I look forward to seeing you all again in August!
