    Pandora is one of the great marketing triumphs of recent years. You can buy the raw pieces and pre-made charms that they use for about £2.50.

      Definitely. Someone in retail once explained the cinema popcorn like margins on Tiffany's silver trinkets to me but they are a slightly different proposition in having history and a fine jewellery business to sprinkle a little stardust onto the lower end stuff.

        The idea of sticking a velvet rope outside and projecting the image of queues of people constantly trying to get in was the work of an evil genius.

          The mass market jewelry industry is an absolute cesspit

          The sworn statements, when read from beginning to end, are shocking, first for the consistency of horrors across cities and regions. Then for the egregiousness and audacity of the abuse they detail. But as you make your way through the declarations — to that of a woman in Missouri who, upon finding her store manager with his penis exposed, was asked if she wanted to join in, or another woman, whose manager felt her up while her boyfriend, also a Sterling employee, was facing another direction — they become shocking simply for their volume. When you finally get to the end — Tammy Zenner, who was called Texas Tammy by her colleagues because of the size of her breasts and who complained to her store manager that an executive visiting the store had rubbed himself against her from behind but was told when she complained that she should be flattered — another wave of shock hits you. Hot-tub orgies? At the company that has so profoundly contributed to our notions of gauzy romance and surprise Valentine’s gifts and new and abundant ways to show a woman how she is treasured?

            No father around in that Pandora ad. Perhaps he ran off with her sister, hence the opening for her friend to become birthing partner and sister she should have had.

              Makes Gerald Ratner's admission that they sold “absolute crap” almost tame in comparison.
