Premier Designs Review-What Is The Truth of That Premier Designs Catalog?
The Premier Designs Company and their Premium Designs Catalog debuted in 1985. In doing my research I sifted through headlines like “Premier Jewelry is a scam” and “Why I chose to leave Premier Designs”. Are these headlines what they appear to be? Is Premier Designs worth your time, money and effort? Well, that’s why I wrote this review and that’s why you are here, so let’s dive in, shall we?
Premier Designs-History and Leadership
Premier Designs was founded by Joan and Andy Homer and they are located in Irving, Texas, just outside of Dallas. It is a Direct Sales Jewelry Company and markets itself through the mlm method. I have researched and reviewed companies who claim to base their business on some sort of spiritual, do unto others type of philosophy, but not to the extent that Premier Designs does.
Joan and Andy say they created their company as a way of supporting ministries in The USA and around the world. They say also that they wanted to base Premier Designs on biblical principles like integrity and unselfish service. It seems they just might be doing things the way God likes because Premier Designs is now a $350 million debt free company.
Premier Designs-The Products of Premier Designs Jewelry Catalog

They are called Premier Designs Jewelers. They market their wares through Home Shows or “Parties”, if you like. The Premier Designs Jewelry Catalog has over 700 pieces of “beautiful, affordably-priced jewelry to suit a variety of fashion styles” designed to last, they say and all of the jewelry items are covered by what they call their “Golden Guarantee” which states that any item can be returned within 60 days for a completely free replacement or if its after 60 days they’ll charge you a $5 plus tax service fee.
I guess getting a refund is out of the question. I’m not familiar with a lot of jewelry company policies so I have to assume that the Premier Designs policy is pretty much the industry standard.
Premier Designs-The Compensation Plan
As stated earlier, as a Premier Designs Jeweler you get people to host a Home Show and the total sales for the show determine the hostess’ payoff. $100 in retail sales gets her $30 in free jewelry and qualifies her to buy 4 items at half price, a $400 party and she gets $120 in free stuff and she gets to buy 6 things at half price. She will be able to buy 8 items at half price and get the 30% of the retail party total for everything totaling $500 and above.
The Premier Designs Jewelers get 50% profit on everything sold at the suggested retail price. They also get 50% off all of the sample jewelry they buy. If you decide to recruit other Premier Designs Jewelers you will get 10% of all of their wholesale totals down 3 levels. Get this, your first level is called your “child”, your second level is your “grandchild” and your third level is your “great grandchild”. Isn’t that just…never mind:)
I would like to take this opportunity to get a pet peeve off my chest. So like it or not, here it is. The majority of people say the word “jewelry” wrong. It is not jewl-ery. It is jew-el-ry. There, I feel better now:)
Hey, this Premier Designs opportunity looks to be on the up and up to me. It does have that air of integrity that they strive for so if you decide to jump on board with these guys or some other mlm you need to be sure you are taking care of THE major challenge in every mlm business. That is the challenge of marketing. Make sure you get hooked up with a proven attraction marketing system.
UPDATE: If you're thinking about network marketing, you must consider a system which includes a funded proposal. Here is what I recommend. The work has already been done. All you have to do is plug in. Works for any mlm. Go here now to see free. Go check it out. The link will open a new window, then you can come back and get your free book.
