Jewellery Day Edition!


Dale & LisaWell back to the Q this week after a few days off at home. I like to take a few days off around this time if I can, as there is so much to do around the house and in the garden.

I also popped down to the lovely West Sussex coast to see my mum but generally I caught up with chores to get those things done that you've been meaning to do for a while and most importantly relax… not easy when you're watching the British Lions in action on the telly though.

Although i'm not on-air until Thursday – I'm actually back today (Wednesday) to host a Jewellery Day Customer Event at Chiswick Park. If you are attending, I look forward to meeting you and around 160 others across the 3 sessions. If you are one of the lucky ones going you'll be able to see a preview of the fabulous designs on show during this Friday's 'Jewellery Day'.

Talking of which – this is the first time we've had such an event – mid year.

It's an all day event and includes brands from all of our Jewellery 'Departments' – Diamonique, Gold Gem set, Silver, Fashion Jewellery and Watches. We will feature many of your favourite brands and introduce some new faces.

I'm delighted to say that at 8pm I'll be presenting the second show with the very lovely Lisa Snowdon – Lisa is well known as a TV Presenter and personality, model, and hosts Capital Radio's Award winning Breakfast Show with Dave Berry.

Our first show was a fantastic success and it seems you took to both Lisa and her collection in a big way – we've brought back many sell-out designs from that show but as always we've added new designs as well.

SnakeRingLisa has a wonderful effervescent personality and somehow this is reflected in her on-trend jewellery collection – you clearly loved the mix of Gold, Rose and White designs with their distinctive fine lines punctuated with pavé Diamonds and yet prices start from around £49!

One of the reasons for the great prices are that our buyers have worked with Lisa to produce a fine Jewellery range in Sterling Silver but artfully finished in Gold or Rhodium exuding a wonderfully sophisticated, classy elegance without breaking the bank – that's surely going to put a smile on your face?


'Fox Alert' – Watch out for a Diamond Cross Station Necklace at a special price – Psssstt! Just between the two of us – OK!

Straight after at 9pm – I'm introducing a Brand New Range to QVC – Missoma Jewellery Collection – Despite it's continental sounding name Missoma is a prestigious British Jewellery Brand, known for it's bold , colourful and contemporary designs – The team behind the brand are Mum Michele (Mi) and daughters Sophia (So) and Marisa (Ma) who will be my guest on the day. I've already met up with Marisa and I'm sure you will find her as delightful as her jewellery.

'Fox Alert 2' – Watch out for the Astra Gem set Gold Vermeil Stirling Silver Necklace in a choice of Amethyst, Smoky Quartz or Blue Chalcedony – at a special price! Oops there I go again.

Although I'm not presenting the show – it was with great pleasure that I saw Viva Las Vegas Gems on the Jewellery Day schedule – I have worked many times before with John and it's great to see him and the show back at 1pm.

Photo CompSo as this is a Jewellery Day Special blog I thought this week's 'Just for Fun' photo comp had to be jewellery related – so! What did the Fox say to Miss Snowdon?

Suggestions in the comments section below please – Keep it clean now! 😉

Till next week, take care and thank you for reading
