QVC jewelry designers keep popping up in the news and not in a good way

Their sales may be slipping but QVC is still one of the top five jewelry retailers and -- I think -- the top seller of 18K gold jewelry in the country. That always kinda amazes me. They're geniuses at moving both fake gems and the higher-priced stuff too.

So why are things getting so weird? One of their featured designers (from Texas! Yay! Oh! Maybe not.) was nearly taken in by a con man. Their Heidi Klum clover leaf jewelry looks way too much like a Van Cleef & Arpels collection. And Cartier is suing QVC over their Joan Rivers watch designs.

Maybe it's just bad luck.
