January 24, 2010

There’s not much new in home shopping, but ShopNBC has been pulling a few good ones out of its hat. For example, today it’s dedicated all day to watch sales, a first-ever for the network.

The No. 3 home shopping network has tried to distinguish itself by offering upscale watches, and it sells such high-end brands as Gucci, Movado and Tag Heuer, to name a few. It has also sold Invicta and other assorted brands for years.

For Sunday’s event ShopNBC has three watches as its Our Top Value, as well.

With home shopping networks cutting back on selling gold jewelry, with the price of that precious metal at an all-time high, we’re waiting to see what kind of merchandise QVC will be hawking during its 23rd Annual California Gold Rush Sale Sunday.

During the all-day event QVC will be selling more than $30 million in 14K gold jewely to commemorate the 162nd anniversary of the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, Calif., which was the largest gold strike in U.S. history.

QVC is springing for free standard shipping and handling for the event, which the network says will be “featuring lots of new designs reflecting the latest trends (including big, bold gem looks), plus over 100 additional sale designs on that you won’t see on-air.”

According to the World Gold Council, QVC offers the largest assortment of 14K gold jewelry in the United States, the network says on its Web site.

QVC’s 23rd Annual California Gold Rush Sale will offer the network’s our largest selection of 14K gold until August.
