Remember when QVC had that Honora pearl earring stud set as the TSV recently?
Turns out that they sold 287,500 sets, breaking the all-time TSV sales record (I believe the old record was a Dell product).
I remember that they were selling like crazy all day (literally, they were flying out the door!) and I just kept waiting for them to run out, but they never did. I can't even imagine how many of these they ordered.
QVC lived up to its name with this one: it was a name-brand fashionable product, a good price, free shipping, buy more-save more, and a versatile enough of gift to work for everyone from a little girl to a big granny. Quality. Value. Convenience. What a concept!
I thought about ordering these, but I haven't had much luck with Honora. I've had to send back everything I've ever ordered due to quality issues. I understand that these pearls aren't going to be perfect, but huge pits and cracks just aren't gonna work for me. However, this particular set has gotten rave reviews. I think it's because these are only 7mm-pearls, whereas I'm always trying to get a string of boulders around my neck! The bigger they are, the harder it is to get them in a decent quality.
QVC Powers-That-Be, please try to do more TSV's like this one. Learn, grasshopper, learn!
BTW, there's another Honora TSV on the 12th. Check it out here.
