The television channel broadcasts live 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in the United States, Puerto Rico, and areas of Canada.
LC has strong, direct relationships with many mines around the world, eliminating many of the middlemen in the jewelry industry. This allows LC to offer customers (also called family members) the lowest prices in the industry, confirmed by their Lowest Price Guarantee. If a customer finds the same item advertised by television or newspaper to a national audience for less, LC will pay him or her the difference, plus an additional 20 percent.
LC specializes in rare and exotic gemstones, making fine jewelry more accessible to everyone. One of their most popular gemstones is tanzanite. The TanzaniteOne Mining Ltd. in Tanzania, Africa, the largest miner and supplier of tanzanite in the world, only allows eight companies hold the honor of being a “sightholder.” And the LC has the number one sightholder position with this mine.

LC is well known for providing “Exceptional Quality, Exquisite Designs, and Outstanding Value.” These words are a promise to their customers and are at the core of what this company stands for.
The company was originally established as The Jewelry Channel, Inc.—still its legal name—with a product line mainly focused on high end items. In March 2007, economic pressures precipitated an evolution of the business. The company began to focus on providing value jewelry products and transitioned to the Liquidation Channel brand.
Liquidation Channel was launched on December 1, 2008. Gerald Tempton joined the LC family as President on December 23, 2009. Since then, the company has grown from 58 employees to more than 500. For the past five consecutive years, the company has seen high double-digit sales increases and even more dramatic profitability increases.
In 2010, the company launched their very first Tanzanite Smackdown event, in an effort to go head-to-head with a major competitor who had planned a special tanzanite event. It soon became one of the company’s marquee events. A Tanzanite Smackdown event runs for a 24-hour time block (often coast-to-coast) and offers the lowest prices available anywhere for this rare, highly sought after stone. In fact, since its inception, no other competitor has hosted a 24-hour event focused around Tanzanite, or any other stone. LC has added Diamond and Emerald Smackdowns to their lineup of special events. They also feature many other 24-hour events focusing on one gemstone with tremendous success.
In 2012, the company began evolving their brand and logo from Liquidation Channel to LC—a change inspired by how the company was most often referenced by its family members. In addition, this important transition demonstrates that the LC is a leader in fashion, style, and value concordantly as noted in its now famous moniker, “Exceptional Quality, Exquisite Designs, and Outstanding Value.”
The channel operates on an exciting reverse auction format where every family member, regardless of when they enter into the auction, receives the lowest price. Orders can be placed through an automated ordering system over the phone or by calling 1-877-899-0099.
In addition, LC offers Personal Shoppers to assist family members with the jewelry and accessory shopping process. This team of experts is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-877-8899-0490.
LC’s website, liquidationchannel.com, is also unique in that it offers a catalog, access to a live stream of the television broadcast, a clearance section, and Rising Auction platform. Every Rising Auction listing begins at just $1 with no reserve.
