Our buyer shares his top Gem Day picks


Jewellery buyer DougWelcome to another spectacular Gem Day!

There is so much to look forward to from QVC throughout the day today (Friday 7th September). 

We will be introducing four new premiere shows including Madagascan Apatite, Special Edition Luxury Gems, Affinity Diamonds in Silver and Premium Diamonds!

We also have a sparkling selection of Easy Pay instalment deals and Special Prices on gemstones and diamonds from around the world. 

Because there are so many beautiful designs to choose from we have enlisted the help of the man-in-the-know, our jewellery buyer Doug, to give you his top picks from today's event…

"My first pick is from the premiere of our Madagascan Apatite show (on QVC TV at 10am). These drop earrings (below left) have a very classic, easy-to-wear design, but the vivid, almost neon tone of the Madagascan apatite makes them really stand out as something special.

My next choice is a ring that is truly breathtaking (above right) – a stunning pink sapphire with half moon cut diamonds in 18ct white gold, featuring in the Special Edition Luxury Gems show (on QVC TV at 3pm). This premiere show has been a real labour of love for me, and I’ve been exceptionally fortunate to be able to bring to our viewers some of the finest quality gemstones I’ve ever seen.

This ring (below left) makes me smile. It can sometimes be a challenge to balance design against price, but with the introduction of Affinity Diamonds in silver for the first time this Gem Day, we’re able to let our designers creativity run free to design beautiful, quality pieces of diamond jewellery that could be prohibitively expensive if they were crafted in more expensive precious metals.

In contrast these classic stud earrings (above right) are simplicity itself, and I’m delighted that we’re able to offer these stunning diamonds with independent certification to confirm that they are Internally Flawless, the highest possible clarity – another first for QVC this Gem Day!

This show-stopping necklace (below left) is a true one-off. Featuring in the Special Edition Luxury Gems show (on QVC TV at 3pm), this 12mm – 14mm graduating Golden South Sea Pearl necklace with diamond clasp is the highest priced item we have ever featured on QVC. How much? Tune in to find out!

And of course my picks for the day wouldn’t be complete without our Today's Special Value (above right) – I’m always looking for an exceptional TSV for Gem Day and this beautiful ring really fits the bill. We have never before been able to offer a tanzanite ring of this high specification at such an amazing price, and it is testament to the hard work of my team and our trusted suppliers that we’ve been able to secure this unbeatable deal."

We hope you enjoy the day and here is a final word from the lovely Rosalyn Kwan from South Sea Pearls, who will be joining us on QVCTV today…

Roz KwanHello to all of my Pearl Girls! 

I have missed you all, but I am happy to announce that I will be returning to QVC TV today at 5pm to bring you my very own Prestige Pearl collection featuring the most unique and rare of all pearls. 

My family and I have personally visited the very best pearl farms in the world to bring you a collection that, until now, I have only been able to dream about. 

Throughout this visit I will take you personally on a tour through Robert Wan’s private lagoons to show you the most magnificent Tahitian pearls, the exquisite Palawan islands of the Philippines for rare deep-golden South Sea pearls, and through one of the newest farms in China for large natural metallic freshwater pearls. 

This regal collection features pearls that have been hand-selected by my family and me for special characteristics which can only be found in a precious few. Natural and untreated by man, I am certain these pearls will captivate you. Expect to see deep lustre, vibrant color and natural beauty, all on display throughout my hour long showcase! 

I look forward to seeing and hearing from you all!
