Disappointed Jewelry LadyI became a premier jewelry lady in March of this year. I have a full time job that I really enjoy and I thought this would be a great way to bring in some extra money to pay off some bills. It seemed like it would be a lot of fun and how can you go wrong if you are having fun? My initial investment was $1600.00. I didn't have the money to do it so I applied for the premier credit card.
I went to the "Rally" they have in July. My cost for this was approximately $1500.00. Additionally they update the line adding new pieces and therefore they "retire" existing pieces. So in August after taking out my retired pieces of jewelry (that were 4 months old) I spent another 900.00 to fill in the gaps left in my display.
Now with my collection current I'm ready to get to work ( I'm really getting into debt with this business). Looking for people to hostess parties I have discovered that the best place for the consumer to purchase premier jewelry is Ebay. Same jewelry, same delivery time you do not get the golden guarantee on Ebay (not a big deal for the 75% - 80% savings!)
I am so disappointed that this opportunity turned into something that put me further into debt instead of it being a tool to improve my financial situation. If you are thinking about doing this my advice to you would be invest in a small collection of jewelry at first. Don't go to the Rally unless you have already made that money. Understand that your investment is continuous so if you work full time you may have to do more shows that you want to at first to pay for your investment. Make sure that the people who have shared the opportunity with you are going to support you.
As for me I can't in good conscious sell something to people that I now know is overpriced. This is a huge disappointment for me.
