A Critical Review Of Premier Designs – Should You Join?

If you’re reading this review, chances are you’re looking into Premier Designs and perhaps you’re thinking about becoming a distributor. Before you join, I want to encourage you to go over this short but detailed Premier Designs review. In it I’ll cover the essential details you need to know before getting involved. I do want to disclose that I’m not a distributor for Premier Designs so it doesn’t matter to me whether you join the company or not. Why is this important? Because you can be sure that you’ll be getting a truly unbiased review.

Who Is Premier Designs?

Premier Designs is a company that sells jewelry through a Direct Sales business model. The Texas-based company was started in 1985 by Joan and Andy Horner. The fact that the company has been around for almost 30 years is a testament to the company’s stability and credibility. In the Home Business Industry, companies come and go so when you have a company that’s been around for that long, they are obviously doing something right. This is important if you’re serious about joining because you are attaching your reputation to the company. And since you are most likely going to approach people you know about the company, you certainly don’t want to introduce them to a company that’s not above board. The company is also a member of the DSA (Direct Selling Association) and does millions of dollars in sales with distributors in all 50 states in the country.

How Do You Make Money With Premier Designs?

The compensation plan at Premier Designs is extremely simple. You’ll earn 50% commissions on the personal sales you’ll make. And you’ll earn 10% override commissions on the sales made by people on your first 3 levels. The way you can truly maximize the compensation plan at Premier Designs is to go wide. And by that I mean personally sponsor as many people as you can. Since you’re only overriding your first 3 levels, you have to make sure those 3 levels are as big as you can get them. So going wide will position you to have many people on your 2nd level. And having many people on your 2nd level, will position you to have many people on your 3rd level. As you can see, going wide and personally sponsoring many people will put you in a position to override a nice size team. Though the compensation plan is simple, it’s very fair and for the right person the opportunity can be quite lucrative.

Should You Join?

Only you can answer that question. It’s definitely a solid company that’s been around for a long time. The products are high quality and the compensation plan is generous. And while those things are a plus in business, they will play little to no part in your overall success. Why? Because your success will depend on your ability to sponsor new people and get customers. And those two things will rely heavily on your ability generate quality leads. My suggestion is that you leverage Attraction Marketing so you can market the right way online and generate leads. If you can do that and be effective in your offline marketing, you can build a very prosperous Premier Designs business for yourself.

The Famous Jewelry of Marilyn Monroe

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death – August 5, 1952 – we take a look at some of Marilyn Monroe’s most famous jewelry pieces. Monroe is arguably the most famous movie star in the world, and an icon of jewelry and fashion who is still admired and emulated today.

Ironically, Monroe rarely wore diamonds in private-her personal collection was mostly costume jewelry – but she had the rare opportunity to wear (on loan) breathtaking jewelry pieces from some of the world’s most prestigious jewelry companies, such as De Beers. Especially following her unforgettable performance of “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” in the 1953 classic film, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Monroe became a true ambassador of the beauty, glamour and elegance of diamonds to the world. So much so that she received an award from The Jewelry Academy, along with a note that read, “To Marilyn Monroe, the best friend a diamond ever had.”

Here are some of her favorite, and most famous, jewelry pieces she wore.

The Moon of Baroda diamond from the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes movie premier

Recall the indelible image of Marilyn Monroe singing “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” dressed in a pink satin evening gown and matching gloves, surrounded by well-dressed men, diamonds dripping from her neck and sleeves. The centerpiece of her outfit was the Moon of Baroda diamond necklace, which she wore to the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes movie premier. The Moon of Baroda is a stunning pear-shaped, yellow canary diamond that weighed 25.95 carats when it was found. It was later cut into its current pear shape and weighs 24.04 carats.

The Moon of Baroda has an exotic origin fitting its name: For more than 500 years, it was owned by the Maharajas of Baroda, India. In 1787, it was sent to the Empress Maria Thérèse of Austria and was also was worn by Marie Antoinette in the 18th century. It was later stolen by Afghan tribal leader Nadir Shah then returned to Baroda where it remained for almost 200 years. In 1943, it was purchased by Meyer Rosenbaum, who lent it to Monroe for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. In 1991, the diamond was auctioned and sold at Christie’s, New York and is now in a private collection.

Diamond necklace from the How to Marry a Millionaire photo shoot

For publicity photos to promote the 1953 film, How to Marry a Millionaire, Monroe wore a large pear-shaped diamond pendant, suspended from a black silk cord necklace.

The platinum and diamond eternity wedding band from Joe DiMaggio

Monroe’s ill-fated second marriage to Yankee baseball great, Joe DiMaggio, started out hopeful. On their wedding day in 1954, DiMaggio gave Monroe a platinum eternity wedding band set with 35 baguette-cut diamonds. In 1999, the ring – minus one diamond – sold at a Christie’s, New York auction for $772,500. In 2011, it was sold again at a Profiles in History auction for $420,000.

The Akoya pearl necklace from Joe DiMaggio.

While on their honeymoon in Japan in 1954, DiMaggio presented Monroe with a 16-inch, single-strand Akoya pearl necklace consisting of 44 Mikimoto pearls. The necklace has been shown around the world as part of a traveling exhibition sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History, New York and the Field Museum, Chicago. It is currently owned by Mikimoto (America) Co, Ltd. as part of a valuable collection of pearls and pearl jewelry.
