I was fortunate to buy these earrings when they were a LTS at a very good price. I have this design in a tennis bracelet so I thought I would love having the earrings. I should have read more details about the earrings so shame on me. They are quite sizable which is fine for some people but just not my style. They are also a bit on the heavy side which is also something I am not a fan of. Unfortunately, back they go.

Very disappointed in these large and heavy earrings. If you can pull them off, good for you but they are just not for me. Too bad there isn't a 1" version that is thinner and lighter in weight. Back to the drawing board to find green hoop earrings.

I received these fabulous earrings and FELL IN LOVE WHEN I PUT THEM ON!!!
They are comparable - in fact, even more beautiful than the gold couture JR earrings in my collection.
I highly recommend them for us green-eyed ladies who prefer pieces that can easily go from casual to dressy at any time This is a great gift to a gal from hubby too.
Get them...They are worth the price.

I absolutely adore these earrings! They're very well made and the green emeralds are nice and bright - as depicted in the photos and video presentation.
As far as size is concerned, 1-3/8" hoops may not seem very large for those of you who like larger earrings, but these hoops have significant presence due to the width and thickness of the hoop as well as the inside/out design,
They're not inexpensive, but between the intricate Ripka details, the quality, and the size of the stones - no one is going to mistake these for some run-of-the-mill diamond and emerald hoops!
Because they're hoops, there's a casualness about them, but the Diamonique and emeralds definitely take it up a notch. Casually elegant. In my book, that makes them very versatile. Perfect for wearing with jeans, a dress, or a gown - whether at home or on holiday.
If your preference is for a more conservative hoop, this might not be your cup of tea. But, if you want a piece of jewelry that will get noticed - and looks like you spent five figures in Judith's Madison Ave boutique - these earrings are a great choice.
I purchased the pierced/omega back version and they feel nice - not terribly heavy.
