Park Lane Jewelry Reviews
Park Lane Jewelry, founded in 1955, states they are the world's leading direct sales jewelry party company. The company's products are available for purchase exclusively at home parties or on their website.
In addition, they also offer an opportunity for people to become Park Lane representatives, which they call "Fashion Directors," which is a flexible work opportunity that allows them to earn money from home.
How Does It Work?
Customers who would like to host a jewelry party must first use the Park Lane Jewelry website to find a Fashion Director in their area who will run a party for them.
Party hosts will have access to a wide variety of bonuses for doing simple things like confirming the guest list, as well as many different discounts on their own jewelry purchases.
Those who would like to become a Fashion Director should know there are sign up costs, and that income begins with 30% commissions paid weekly based on what you bring in from your parties, as well as access to bonuses based on your sales.
Their jewelry and accessories range in price, from as low as $15 per item upwards to $400 and more. There is no cost to host a jewelry party other than the costs you choose to include in throwing a party for your friends and family members.
The cost of becoming a Fashion Director is dependent on the package you choose for yourself, but they do begin with a $39 down payment.
Park Lane Jewelry has a policy that allows you to exchange or replace items up to 120 days after you receive them. Cash refunds are only available within 30 days and original receipts and any bonus items you received with your purchase must be returned as well.

Tarnished and broken jewelry and cult like recruiting
I loved this jewelry at first but then the more I got the more things went south! Earrings started breaking and tarnishing at points it didn’t even have contact with my skin!
The rings are all green and tarnished and two different necklaces I got I never got to wear because they broke right out of the box!
And since I didn’t try the pieces on until after the return policy the consultant won’t help me fix it! They have a cult mentality of just getting people to sign up for this crap jewelry saying it is different but honestly I have fake Walmart jewelry that has held up better!
Stay away or get sucked into holding showcases every couple of months!
Seems like a great company to me
I’m not a consultant, and I never will be, but I have had nothing but good luck with their products.
I had an issue once where a bracelet started to tarnish bc I wore it in the ocean and they sent me a new one. The 2 consultants I know personally are amazing women.
Poor quality and customer experience
The return policy is awful and so is the consultant I worked with. I bought the Bamboo Necklace a few months ago, but wore it for the first time on yesterday. It completely fell apart after one wear! I called the consultant I worked with to get assistance with the return process.
Although it was past the 120 day mark, let's remember...the necklace broke after one wear! I told the consultant that I would give a bad review of this necklace online...and the consultant hung up on me! I 'politely' called the consultant a not so nice name as I was offended that she hung up because I simply provided my honest and very direct feedback.
She is a poor representative of the company! Furthermore, I want my necklace replaced at no cost since it fell apart after ONE WEAR!
Tag on jewelry says Made in China.
I hate to see that people have had such bad experiences with Park Lane. I had a show back in February and I did not have any issues at all. Show orders are supposed to go directly to the hostess not the fashion director.
One of the items that I ordered was entered wrong and I got the wrong one. I sent said item back and in a total of 2 weeks I had my correct item. I did have the item in the mail to return the day after I got it.
Friends who booked shows from my show had their orders sent to them as well with out any problems other than some back ordered items which were back in and sent out in a week and a half.
That is the fault of the director not the company. I got my order in 7 days from the company not the director. Sounds like she was running a shady business and not reflective of Park Lane themselves.
Good Quality Products
it's November and still waiting for a necklace I ordered in AUGUST!
Park Lane jewelry deserves NO stars.
There are a few of us who are very upset with the treatment by not only their consultant but also management.
They reply with generic emails, and any phone numbers we've tried have been disconnected.
We paid extra to have the product delivered to us and were assured we would have the items by Mothers Day. The company then sent the items to the consultant instead, and she has told us to " sort it out ourselves"
The franchisee's are in Hawaii and don't want to know. I was told to call back when they get back from their holiday. In the meantime 4 of us have NO Mothers Day gifts due to the incompetence of the company.
I will be contacting the dept of fair trading and taking action if this isn't resolved within 7 days. I don't have the time, money or patience for idiots.
My advice for everyone, is to NEVER deal with Park Lane Jewelry because they don't want to know you if there's a problem.
So sorry you had a bad experience. I hope your issue was resolved. I have been buying jewelry from Park Lane for over 20 years and have never had any issues. From your write up it seems to stem from the consultant themselves, especially if it was sent to her. She entered it that way. I had a couple of pieces that I broke and needed toff get replaced. I called the number that is on their website and spoke to a representative who immediately walked me through what I needed to do to get the return process started. All in all with me shipping my pieces to them and them returning them it took about 2 weeks. I was very impressed with how helpful they were. Horrible Fashion Director and I hope that she is no longer with the company.
How were you able to learn that the jewelry is made in China? Asking as I've written customer service what country/countries the jewelry is manufactured in and can not get that question answered.
