    I am surprised that all of Jay’s jewelry is made in China! I used to believe it is handcrafted in the USA. Are his products handcrafted in China? What’s the true story of where it is made?

  6. Is Jay still married to his female wife? On 10/06/21, when Jay was on HSN he and his cohost had the same wedding rings on. It made me wonder if he and his wife divorced and he is now the partner of his cohost?
