Ralph Rossini brings us a top-rated Honora TSV


Ralph Rossini Hi everyone,

Well it's getting really close to my visit to celebrate Honora's 11th anniversary on QVC UK and I truly can't wait!

We really wanted to do something special to celebrate 11 amazing years and what better way than a Today's Special Value featuring 11mm cultured freshwater pearl earrings? Usually a TSV is a closely guarded secret, but as anyone who has been following Honora on Facebook knows, it's WAY too late for that!

For those of you who aren't in on the worst-kept secret ever, it's the same style earring that ran as a TSV on QVC US last month and immediately became a top-rated item by customers.

Honora Button Pearl Drop Earrings This style has a uniquely designed curved earwire that allows the pearl to stand out beautifully, yet is still so comfortable to wear that you might even forget you have them on! The big difference is the unique selection of colours we'll be offering you to keep it fresh, exciting and different.

While I don't want to spoil the big secret of the colours (hey, I have to have something to talk about at midnight!), I really want to make sure you take advantage and have a look at the customer comments on Facebook as well as the reviews on QVC's US website. It's not often the jewellery buyers in the UK and US agree on a TSV, but I think when you see our earrings, you'll totally understand why.

Also I sincerely want to thank each and every one of you for 11 great years on QVC UK and for all your wonderful on-air phone calls, emails, cards and comments on Facebook. I honestly can't tell you how much it means to me personally, and to the entire Honora family too.

We have many more surprises in store to celebrate our big occasion and I hope you'll all tune in to share in the festivities.

Warmest regards,

Tune in for Ralph's Honora shows at 12am, 12pm, 3pm, 8pm – 10pm and 11pm on Monday 3rd May.

See more from Honora Pearls

    Hi Ralph – congratulations to you and all at Honora on your 11th anniversary at QVC UK – I have been a QVC customer for over 12 years and I have watched lots of Honora shows – making many purchases along the way.
    The quality of the pearls is fabulous and I love the traditional and especially the modern designs that Honora create. Pearls in their natural state are gorgeous – but I adore the huge range of colours they now come in.
    Terrific pearls,designs,value and informative and entertaining presentations by your good self. Cant ask for more!
    I will be tuned in to see the anniversary shows and I love the TSV earrings .
    Many thanks and best wishes to all ‘Honorarians’ !!!

    I am something of a rock chic, and yet I love pearls.
    Can we have some more pearls with leather? Leather necklets, bracelet straps etc….I have the bracelet on sale, but I would love a black leather studded bracelet.
    regards Jennifer

    Hi Ralph.
    Lovely to see you back. I have so many of your pearls now and love them all…especially the rondell.

    Hi Ralph! I love Honora and would really love a necklace but wish you would give us a choice of 50 or 55cm length. I bet there would be a great demand for them, as if you are size 14+ the longer lengths do sit better. Best wishes, Sue

    Hi Ralph, Your Honora pearls are fab but I have one really big gripe, I am sick of seeing silver, silver, silver. I do not wear silver I find it cheap please bring more designs in GOLD. Also a nice gold chain with a single drop pearl pendant would be very nice in lots of colours, ie teal, pink, black etc. I would love to buymore of your items but as 97% of the designs are in silver I don’t. I noticed on QVC USA you had a gold version of the silver TSV yesterday, please bring them to us. Thanks

    Hi Ralph, many congratulations on your 11th anniversary and you did not disappoint!! I watched all of your shows yesterday and all the pearls on offer were just fabulous, including the TSV which is just stunning. I bought several pieces for myself and bought three gifts for friends who have birthdays coming up soon – one is a 60th birthday. I love the lustre and the fabulous colour choices and the designs are so very modern as well as traditional too. Please keep bringing your lovely pearls to QVC. I will be watching your shows again this morning and tonight. Just joined Honora on Facebook too. xx

    Hi Ralph,
    Once again we can say that you have spoilt us with your wonderful collection of high quality pearls in all different shapes and sizes to suit every mood you can think of! Keep them coming and congratulations on your 11th anniversary!

    Hi Ralph
    Congratulations on your 11th anniversary and for keeping the Honora collections so exciting, fresh and new. Every show I wonder what else I could possibly fit into my Honora collection and there’s always something to surprise and tempt me!
    I love your use of silver – as someone that doesn’t wear yellow metals I appreciate the affordability and look of silver with the pearls, I think the white metals really complement the colours and lustre of the pearls. I have a grey keishi pearl necklace with a white gold clasp that is one of my favourites and goes with everything.
    My best value item is the set of seven pairs of stud earrings which I bought several years ago and wear almost every day. I was proud to wear Honora on my wedding day last year and my bridesmaids were thrilled with their Honora gifts.
    Please keep bringing us the mix of affordable staples and boutique designer pieces, the pearls and your personality make the shows such a joy to watch.
    Best wishes, Sophie

    Hi Ralph
    Agree with other comments, your pearls are fabulous but it would be wonderful to have more choice in yellow gold as I do not wear white metal.
    Yellow gold pearl earrings, a yellow gold pearl ring, a pearl bracelet with gold fixings… these would quicken my heart!
    Many thanks Ralph and keep the gorgeous pearls coming,
