Queen Bea Got Invited to the Ball!

Well ... maybe not a ball exactly. I checked my email and found this invite:

As a valued jewelry and gemstone customer, we would like to invite you to participate in a research study on jewelry and gemstone preferences. The research will last approximately two hours. You will receive $75 cash compensation for participating in this study.

I have several slots available to be filled on a first come first serve basis on Wednesday June 18th, and Thursday June 19th. (Times listed below). The research being conducted in a group discussion format. You will spend time sharing your ideas and opinions about jewelry with research facilitators. It would be appreciated if you wore or brought a few pieces of jewelry that reflect your personal taste. This is not mandatory, only preferable.

These groups are enjoyable, as well as a great opportunity for you to talk about your jewelry interests. The $75 will be given to you at the conclusion of the research study.

If you are interested in joining us on the 18th or 19th of June, please answer the following questions and indicate which time slot you would prefer to attend. Again, the slots are filled on a first come, first served basis.

Do you, or anyone in your family, work in advertising or public relations? Marketing research? Or for a manufacturer or retailer of jewelry?
Have you participated in a similar research panel within the last six months?
What shopping channels do you use to purchase jewelry from? ***

Wednesday June 18th : 9:00 am., 2:00 pm.
Thursday June 19th : 12 noon, 2:00 pm..

Thank you for your time. If you cannot make this particular group, but are interested in other market research studies, please let me know. Also, if you know anyone who hasn't purchased jewelry from television or online, we do have a specific group available for them to share their ideas and opinions.

***Gee, wonder why they would send me an invitation of all people. I never shop on home shopping channels or anything!

I am soooo excited! I get to make money telling these people exactly what I think. How fun! What jewelry should I wear? It needs to make a statement about what I will spend my hard-earned money on. Maybe the Barbara Bixby Romeo & Juliet ring ... it's beautiful, unique, designer, solid, quality craftsmanship, and not overpriced (although it's teetering on the verge of it!).

They need to know that trying to pass off drill bits as diamonds is bad and that stretching out gold so thin that it dents when you blow on it is very bad and they need to know that designer needs to really be designer, not just a famous name slapped on the same ol' crap.
Queen Bea is already polishing up her Diamonique tiara for the occasion!
