Experience with jewelz.com


#1

Hello everyone,

Has anyone ordered from Jewelz.com? If so, are their stones any
good?

No experience with them but there pictures aren’t very good. The
stones I CAN see look windowed and included, but the prices are
pretty low so it’s probably accurate with what you are buying.

One thing I noticed is the pictures of garnets don’t match their
descriptions.

I’ve never bought from Jewelz.com, but you had me intrigued. Oy -
such stones. I wouldn’t touch them ! I mean, emeralds that are almost
colorless ? “Yellow citrine” with hardly any yellow in them at all ?
A lot of sick-looking stones.

Hi Gang,

I mean, emeralds that are almost colorless ? "Yellow citrine" with
hardly any yellow in them at all ? A lot of sick-looking stones. 

Maybe they got a shipment of fish tank gravel & thought it was
supposed to be faceted stones.

That site is absolutely hilarious! Imagine… a carat diamond (and a
lumpy I SI2 at that) worth $24,000 that you can buy for just
$2,400!!!

I hope no one takes them seriously, because they are seriously
misleading.

Looking at their web site (with an experienced eye in the computer
biz) this is an amateur operation, what we used to call a “Mickey
Mouse outfit”.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve had the
experience of people using the term “Mickey Mouse” to mean really
good.

Usually it has been people (customers and colleagues) who are first
generation Australian and my theory is that they are taking the
meaning as Disney like and therefore slick and professional.

The first time I was really surprised, it was when I was selling a
guy a computer and he wanted to make sure that the computer was a
"Mickey Mouse system", the second time it was a new boss praising my
neat and tidy battery display.

Alison,

Well, in the US, a “Mickey Mouse outfit” is a goofy company that
appears to be run by the Three Stooges. :wink: Some years ago I was the
lead programmer for a software company that solding purchasing
management software. We went to a purchasing manager’s convention.
One of the keynote speakers was the purchasing manager for
DisneyWorld. The title of his talk ? “Buying for a Mickey Mouse
Outfit”. Then we also have our premier software company here in the
US, “Mickeysoft”.
