Jade Troth is back

I e not mentioned this on this forum before but this thread seems fitting. I have a lot of trouble sleeping and have done for quite a while. About 6 months ago I had the idea to try putting some background noise on while I sleep to see if it helps. And what better to listen to to make you sleep?? That’s right- it’s gemporia every night. Listening to Dave drone on… I barely ever even hear him anymore, I am asleep before I know it. Luckily no nightmares involving Jadite and endless clocks so far but I’ll keep monitoring that.
 
Somebody tell me, why is it, that regardless of the price of items sold on Gems, do they insist (some more than others) that they always compare. Just now, they, they? He, is comparing jewellery items from the 1700s as well as one from the early 1900s to what they are selling now. THEY are immaterial, probably no more "on the market". How can they compare artisanal carvings to what is done today? Skills then and skills now are completely different. 'Probably' most skills now are assisted with machinery, then: no, or highly unlikely. Even if the carving is impressive for what it is, it is not at all really comparable to things made over 100 to 300 years old. Yes, you're fed up of me and my rants over comparisons, but bug me no end they do: have you noticed? :p

And on a side note. He could be selling a bag of manure (so polite, aren't I?) and STILL insist of equating it to Jade. As he has done so with the MoP he's talking about. Can't say selling :p It's been 45 or so minutes and nowt, price-wise has shown yet.
It was only a matter of time before they started comparing antique jewellery with what they're offering. No stone left unturned.

I've just had a quick look during the 2pm-3pm hour and was amazed that DT wasn't on there - just Ellis on her own selling a string of dyed freshwater pearls for £49.99 as the biggest bargain (of course). From the schedule it actually looks as though DT isn't on today.
 
Meant to say this morning but at least they're now warning us...

I know it's delayed, and after 2 or so hours being on air, our beloved DT is back at 7 tonight, but did 'you' see the large opal in silver with the small stones to the side? "There's a mistake" and "if they phone you back in a week or so, telling you the price is wrong and want to reimburse you". I know what I like and I like opals, but those opals, wrongly priced ;) I would suggest were the 'cloudier' ones that they used to sell when they first started selling Ethiopian opal. AKA, in my opinion, not wonderful enough to be 'priced' wrong.

And on a silly note. This is called JT is back. Is he ever 'off'? :p
 
Me again. Something of a soap box again? Probably. But. You could have DT (& co) having a piece of the KIng's Jade (priorly the Queen's) that was 'put together' by Faberge and bought over by pixies from the other side of the rainbow: aka PERFECT and SO rare, and he'd say that theirs is better. Joking aside about the Pixies, but, just heard him saying that basically 'other jades' that aren't the on-air dulong 'jade', aren't as good as dulong. My goodness! I ask ya.

As far as I know, Jade is only popular in China. So why all the promotions?
Gemporia never used to sell Jade!
 
Probably a cheap job lot that he can't offload to anyone else so selling it here to impress us!!. If it was that good the Chinese would have bought it
Yup. Most of the lesser quality gets sent abroad, and I reckon, coz DT can't make a living off his DHJ 'house', that's why he floods Gems with it. What's the phrase? He's bitten off more than he can chew.
