Premier Jewelry Is a Scam

I hosted a show recently and was so excited about all the incentives!   Not one piece of jewelry was what I had been shown!      The pieces I received were of a lower quality. I'll be at a show on Saturday March 11 to compare my jewelry to the "showcase" jewelry the designer begins. Oh and the best part, a local tv ancor and a hidden camera will be there.  i can't wait. Please don't be scammed!!!!!!! be careful

In 90s was decent and held up. New pieces from two months ago r literally falling apart. No more of this .....I can get this level of quality at Target and better quality at same price at Dillards or Norstrom.

I just had a party and ordered a lot of jewelry from them, my order was delivered in a little less than a week after closing, all the pieces were the exact quality that my jeweler had on display. Did you know your jeweler personally, or go to one of their shows previously?

I think it is true as a sales rep for any home party....soon your friends hide for fear of feeling guilty not buying. In today's economy. This is not cheap merchandise! A friend or family member are not here to finance my living. Don't see how many feel comfortable with this... Yes, please come over for fun, laughs and snacks My door is open for

The good times, sad times but not for you to leave with a purchase. I think home parties are tacky!

You were never a Premier Designs Hostess and especially never a Jewelry Lady for Premier Designs Jewelry. I tracked your computer ip and got your address & name a few months after you posted this. Just stumbled on it again and thought I would let you know I know who you are.

That's a bummer... I too was disappointed when I moved from Texas to Colorado and found there are so many Premier Design reps than I know. I also invested in the catalogs a few times a month and the initial $1200 kit. I was at a neighbors watching a football game and starting talking with someone else from my church about Paparazzi Accessories- where everything is priced for under $5!!! I was BLOWN AWAY! Almost every women will spend $20 for 4 pieces of jewelry and its the same quality, if not better than all the stores at the mall. I quickly realized the potential with this company is much bigger- everyone goes crazy for $5 jewelry! Its sells itself and its such a new company that the competition is much lower for the consultants.... there is a lot of room to grow! Each piece you buy at wholesale for $2.75, sell it for $5 and you pocket $2.25 of that. There are starter kits that save you a ton of $ starting at $300 for 100 pieces of jewelry. There are no catalogs to keep up with or buy and you have permission to sell online-something a lot of direct sales do not allow. There are a ton of ways to sell- basket/lunch parties (you can drop these off and collect later), home parties, craft shows, boutiques, online stores, expos, even Facebook parties, you can get creative with it. There are still less than 25K consultants as they just stated MLM in 2011! Let me know if you're interested. Its the perfect transition!

I looked up Paparazzi, was not impressed. There is hardly anything in their catalog I would wear. I am 40yrs. old not 20, and nothing worth wearing. I want something stylish and age appropriate and Premier offers all that and more.

Lol at everyone saying premier jewelry is quality especially the "gemologist", its plated crap...but to each their own I guess

Check the BBB for Premier Designs Jewelry and then check any other direct distributor in the US. No one comes close to the A+ rating Premier Designs has and you don't get that rating if you have or sell a bad product of any kind, especially jewelry. Sorry to see you are such a poor, uneducated and socially disabled person.

Premier Designs has been in business for 28 years. I bought jewelry from a friend 25 years ago who was a Premier Design Jeweler. I did have a piece fade and Premier stood by their guarantee and replaced it. Nice jewelry and great company.

There is definitely a physical address for Premier. I am an independent sales distributor for Premier Designs and I mail things directly to them and get things directly from them as well. I call them all of the time and they answer the phone "How may I serve you?" Just so you know, each piece of jewelry is hand made by Premier Designs. Plus, most of the profit goes towards charities and mission trips. I have over 70 pieces of jewelry from Premier Designs and they are of the highest quality of jewelry I have ever owned. For a great price too! Other jewelry companies are solely focused on just making profit. Premier Designs is people before profit always. Other companies charge a fortune, Premier Designs has the best hostess plan and hostess benefits out there. I was able to give my last hostess $400 in free jewelry. Please, I'm just saying, Premier Designs in most certainly not a scam. It has completely changed my husband's and my life. I'm no longer worried about paying the bills.

I just want to testify that I am proud of my Premier Jewelry and have a friendship with my Premier Jewelry Lady. The overt anger that the blogger has expressed sounds genuine. She must have a little "activist" blood in her and wants to bring down "the man". What can I say, she has the right to investigate but I hope she finds a transparent company who will be blessed by the confrontation in the long run. I happen to be attending a jewelry party tonight and I'm excited!

I checked out their website. There is no physical address for this company and no telephone number listed. I'm not saying they scam people, but c'mon no contact info.

You can only log into the website if you are an Independent Sales Distributor yourself. I am and I am able to contact them personally.

I just checked the website and beg to differ. There is a home office address, a mailing address, a toll-free phone number, and a link to contact them.

I am shocked - I have several pieces of Premier Designs jewelry and it lasts, is durable, beautiful, the hostesses are very, VERY wonderful and HONEST!

so.....how did it go? did you get the expose you were looking for, or just debunk your own opinion? Just curious.....

I have purchased quite a few items from premier and they are very nice. Not top quality but fun pieces. I think a tad bit higher in price but no one twists your arm. I do not consider the sales people jewelers just honest women making a honest living.

We may have freedom of speech as part of our Constitution, but you can also be sued for "libel" when what your choose to write is false. I would suggest removing this post because it is entirely false.

It isn't false lol, premier designs is a scam; the hostest receive sub par jewlery for the shows they hold under the actual jeweler, and the jeweler has to pay a yearly entry fee and pay for the magazines to present. Um Pyramid scheme???

IF you can go around and sell the product for FREE, if you can't post the product online and attempt to further the selling process... Lol if you have to pay to sell there product, yeah. SCAM

It's an independent business.. Of course you have to pay to sell their product. Just like Mary Kay, Avon or any other Independent Sales company...

I bought 3 pieces last year or so, maybe 2 years. But one of my rings faded rusted around the ring I loved the ring but feels uncomfortable wearing it. They both are very pretty. but wanted to see if im stuck with them or am i able to exchange them?

You can always exchange your jewelry. Premier has a lifetime golden guarantee. Find a premier jeweler and let her know that you would like to exchange and she will help you out.

this is far from the truth. You either had a bad experience with a false seller or you were not buying premier jewelry. I do not sell premier but am a frequent buyer I have always gotten the product I was shown and paid for. I am sorry you had a bad experience but don't fault the company for an individual seller.

I just started as a premier designs jeweler. I am in college and my full-time job makes me about 16k a year. I live with my fiance that make quite a bit of money (70K). The money I make at my full time job is hardley enough to live on after paying bills. Everyone says oh well get a better paying job. Yeah, that is almost impossible because my school schedule changes every six weeks. Premier has helped me double my money in a week. Sometime I make more money doing a show then a do a week at my 40hr a week job. Yes the start up fee was a little high but I used the jeweler rewards credit card which is only helping me build up my credit. This is not something I will be doing as a full time job for the rest of my life but PD is helping me pay for college so I can acheive my goals and have my dream job as an occupational therapist.

I have been a gemologist for over 30 yrs.
Premier Designs jewelry is the finest made in America.
I also have chosen to offer this high fashion product to my clientele for travel and gift purchases. 19 yrs now in fact. I don't know this woman of have never had anyone state the things she has.. she is a anomaly. Premier Designs Has received multi national awards for business ethics and principal....
ignore this woman post.

Please stop calling yourselves 'jewelers'. You are salespeople.

Jewelers is the term that Premier Designs calls its sales people, and God Bless you.

There is nothing inaccurate about calling ourselves "jewelers". According to the Google dictionary
jew·el·er
ˈjo͞o(ə)lər/noun
1. a person or company that makes or sells jewels or jewelry.

But you don't make or sell it, you advertise it. No jewelry goes to your hand into the hands of your buyers.

When there jewelry starts to die, I will feel bad for the hundreds of dollars some people will lose.

This is really sad. I am so sorry but I can promise you that if you were indeed tricked or scammed it was not Premier Designs. They have so much integrity that if you called the company instead on taking this route they would have investigated the person who you think was a fraud and helped you in anyway possible. I have been a jeweler for 8 years and have never dealt with any other company who truly have people as there number asset. They put God first and profit second. This is what Premier is really about so I hope you have the opportunity to experience this for yourself someday. It really breaks my heart when someone has a negative experience from a jeweler who doesn't really model premiers true purpose and plan. Praying for you to achieve peace and happiness with whatever you choose.

This is so untrue! As a Premier Designs Jewelry lady myself I can tell you that they "showcase" jewelry that I bring to my parties is jewelry that I have purchased myself through the company!! We show our own personal jewelry. We wear our samples on a daily basis. We don't order special jewelry to show, it's all the same stuff!! This complaint is totally bogus. I am proud of the jewelry that I sell and the products that my customers receive.

Ariydan: Not sure who you were dealing with but it definitely wasn't a true Premier Design Consultant. I have been hosting parties for many, many years and I have never had 1 piece of jewelry that wasn't as advertised, actually it always looks better after I receive it.

I am new to this site and have been reading you all's postings. let me start off by saying I really hate that some ppl have had some bad experiences with the Premier Jewelry line. I have quite a bit of it myself & had not had any problems. And these ppl have my sympathy but we MUST understand that there are different strokes for different folks...there are all types of jewelry that can and cannot be worn due to various sensitive skin & acidic skin issues...so wear only what your skins allows then life goes on (not to sound non-caring). The reasoning behind my post is that I am needing help to gain knowledge & ONLY FACTS (both bad & good, but FACTS) about the various Jewelry companies that are out there like Premier Designs. Because I have a love for jewelry & would love to be involved in this type of business as a Jeweler or Rep so can anyone assist me in Which company is the best one to join? (Premier, Stella & Dot, Lia Sophia, Silpada) & what others are out there (besides the ones I named) that I may not be aware of ? Thanks in advance for anyone that can answer my post.

I am a Premier rep but beforehand, I too researched other direct sales companies. I\'d be happy to answer any questions you may have other email if you\'re interested. I\'d love to share my own personal reasons for joining Premier. I don\'t have a rags to riches sob story where Premier saved my life. I\'m just a mom who wanted some time out of the house to herself. I LOVE Premier and plan on continuing to serve women. And if I can help someone find their niche and something that would make them as happy as I am, I\'m more than happy to do so. ;) And if even after talking with me you discover one of these other companies is your better fit, then I was still able to help you find your way. That\'s what it\'s all about. ;)

Hello I too was a Premier Designs "jewelry lady" since Premier I am enjoying life and part of an amazing company. Doing what I love best giving away lots of free jewelry! I joined Park Lane company 3 years ago and it truly has changed my life and my family for the best! With no investments yes! no investments only $10.00 ! You can start your business and Park Lane invests in you! For only $10.00 dollars current promotion (normally $39.00) they provide you with a $1000 kit plus books and all the necessary tools to test drive the business! During the first 6 months they offer more jewelry to help you with your business! It even gets better...Park Lane showers it's customers, hostess and especially its directors with many gifts! Park Lane showers us Directors with many gifts just for doing our job! We receive so many things like cash..gemstone rings, cash..car bonus or Mercedes Benz..cash..designer outfits and cash! Just when you think it can't get any better! Park Lane Directors can also earn two all-expense paid vacations each year.....to places all over the world, even if you are brand new to Park Lane! When I first joined Park Lane I won my very 1st trip to Aruba not only for me but for both my husband and I. Since then it's been Italy, Ireland, Costa Rica coming up Cabo after that is all expense paid vacation to Barcelona! In Park Lane there's no investment, No inventory, No quotas and NO yearly fees!!! So, who do you know that loves jewelry, recognition & could use extra money? It gets even better Park Lane can offer management positions for Direct Sales Experience! That's correct if you or know someone who has direct sales experience they bring in the same level from your current company! Amazing!!! feel free to contact me to learn more!
God bless!

Park Lane is EXPENSIVE!!!!There is pieces in there that are over $100 or even more, never would I pay those prices for costume jewelry. There is not one piece over $70 for any Premier piece, and those are mostly their watches, and they stand behind EVERY piece 100% for as long as you own their jewelry.

At one time I thought the same but when I understood the wonderful Specials Park Lane offers I was wowed. Park lane is not expensive there are over 100 pieces under $50.00. With Park Lane there is a Good Deal purchase $30-$50 item select One Bonus Item Equal to your Purchase Total for just $12.

Best Deal purchase over $90
Select THREE bonus ITEMS equal to your purchase total for just $12 each and get another item equal same value for FREE!! And best part the director does not pay out for these incentives special deals it comes directly from company and there is a unconditional lifetime guaranty included on all of our jewelry.

If you weren't happy with the quality of your jewelry you can always return it or exchange it. Premier Designs jewelry come with a golden guarantee that other companies don't offer. Fear not Premier Design jewelry is high quality.

Let's resolve this phony complaint right now.....what is Premier Designs rating with the BBB???? Yes, that's right....they are an accredited business with the BBB and their rating is A+ The highest you can get for all categories !!!! Now....try some other direct sales companies and see where they rate...some of them had to change names 5 or so times to get rid of their F ratings.....Premier is top notch in every way.

What you say is untrue.....I was a hostess for Premier Designs Jewelry for 5 years. The product is superior and the prices cannot be beat...but what makes Premier truly different then all the rest...is the care they show everyone. This is what convinced me to become a jeweler, so I could do the same for others.

I have been to several Premier home shows/parties and have been generally disappointed. I have to agree that some of the pieces I ordered did not look as good as what was displayed. This may have been unintentional, but at best, there was a break down in quality control.

So...... did you return it or ask for your money back? There is always that option.

Ha Ha I Found A Site That Sells Premier Design Jewelry For Cheap .. Found Triumph Which Is Retailed At $39 Plus Tax Plus Shipping .. For Only $2 Free Shipping For 2 Of Them!! Also Found Manhattan For $9 Bucks Free Shipping Aswell .. Premier Is A Rip Off.

I will caution you! There are many out there who try to replicate Premier's jewelry. They are very good at duplicating the design and not the quality, and if it suits your fancy than great! However, know that it may not be getting what you think. When you buy from a Premier jeweler you know that what you are getting top end high fashion jewelry with one of the most impressive quality minimums out there.

Premier has been the biggest blessing in my life so far. I am a jeweler and lifelong jewelry collector, and Premier's jewelry is the nicest in my collection. It is quality, life-long, and beautiful.. just like all the relationships i have built with jewelers and hostesses i have had the pleasure of knowing through Premier!! Love this company, this article is misleading!!

I myself am a premier jewelry lady and I must say that what you are saying is a total lie. All my clients will tell you that the jewelry is high quality and besides that I am allergic to the medals in cheap jewelry but I can wear every piece in our line so I know it's not cheap.
