It looks like HSN has found its own Michael O’Connor! The much-missed O’Connor was QVC’s former diamond guru.
Diane Warga-Arias posted on Facebook today, “It’s OFFICIAL: I am the Resident HSN DIAMOND EXPERT ….ON-AIR MAY 1st with COLORS OF DIAMONDS! I am so excited!”
We believe we’ve seen Diane on HSN as the guest on some diamond shows, and if so, we welcome her back.
As any QVC watcher knows, for years O’Connor served as that home shopping network’s diamond expert. A celebrity stylist for jewelry, O’Connor hooked up the stars with diamonds for the red carpet and was the guest for QVC’s Affinity Diamond shows.
He was charming and informative, but apparently he wanted to do another gig on another network, and QVC wouldn’t let him stay on and do both.
We miss him, especially during April, our birth month and diamond month. The clear carbon sparkler is our birthstone.
