Today's Blue Plate Special ... Exotic Travels on Wheels

The QVC TSV is a 1.10 ct tw Andalusite & Diamond Accent Ring 14K Gold. I don't care for the setting, but the stone is interesting. I didn't know much about andalusite so I did a little research. Here's what Jewelry Television had to say about the gem:
Depending on the viewing direction, andalusite can appear olive green, rich reddish brown, or grayish green.
Unlike alexandrite, andalusite color changes are pleochroic and based on viewing angle - not lighting.
Andalusites are often cut so that the table is green with red or orange on the edges.
Named after the Spanish city Andalusia, andalusite was first discovered in Spain. Andalusite is a naturally occurring pleochroic gemstone.
On Mohs’ scale of hardness, andalusite is 7.5.

Even Jewelry Television didn't have much inventory of this stone, so it really is rare. The Q's not lying!

The HSN TS is a Skyway 30" Wheeled Duffle with Vented Pocket. I'm sure this is fine. I just don't have an opinion one way or the other. If you like SSC, there is a 20% off sale here.

The ShopNBC OTV Taja 7' x 9' Hand Tufted Wool Rug. I have a rug that looks just like this! $200 isn't a bad price for a 7x9 wool rug, even with the $25 shipping (plus most people don't have to pay sales at ShopNBC!!!)

If you've got 08/08/08 Olympic fever, ShopNBC also has all the new Olympic gear here.
