    I haven't been getting preview emails either, but I have always gotten the release emails on time. I am evidently waaaaay too slow to actually get anything though.

    I'm still not getting either preview or release emails. I think it's the pearl-gods saving me from myself. LOL!

    I have not been getting preview emails, at all. But I have gotten the release emails.
    For the past 2 drops, I set alarm and refreshed pages. Emails come in around the same time as everyone mentioned.

    Yesterday email came in and is time-stamped in my inbox 4:04pm. I immediately clicked through and half of inventory was already gone.
    I'm a pretty good sniper and have sniped a lot of things in the Feb release and just hard to imagine being so slow and out of luck on the new system with the May releases.

    I really wanted to fancy colored metallic freshwater - I've been obsessed about those since I saw Cathy's strand at the 2016 Ruckus. Bummed that strand eluded me again! WAAHHH!!!

    I got the email at 4:02 and some items were already gone.
    C'est la vie.

    I would be very happy if the private launch resumed its preview policy. A lot of pressure to make lightning rod decisions. And please finesse it so ALL VIP's get the launch email on time.

    I got my email at 4:04pm & the metallic pearls were already gone. I would like to know what happened to all those loose SS's that were suppose to be released in different size lots. I only saw 1 release & that was for the huge ones of which I bought 1 for a special project.

    I got busy at work (the nerve of my employer!) and couldn't get on until 4:26, and that metallic strand was gone, which didn't surprise me, but it is a shame to hear it went so quickly - well, good for PP, I guess, but a shame that it was gone before emails were sent out.

    The copper-gold metallic was gone by the time I got the email at 4:02!
    Hopefully the buyer will post photos so we can enjoy it vicariously.

    I agree - decision under pressure is never fun!

    I don't think it's even possible to ensure that everyone gets the emails at the same time. Different email providers etc.
    But I like the idea of a preview.

    I'm not a fan of competitive shopping, either. For myself, these launches are all about what was offered.

    I did like the Tahitian pendants.

    I enjoyed looking at the offerings. I miss that. My email address where I received the notices is gone and I have no excuse to sign up, so please post photos of your purchases. I am very interested to see what people have picked.

    I think I am not the only one to covet those stunning metallic copper-gold pearls, but they were gone when I checked. I hope whoever was lucky enough to purchase those beauties posts them here.
