Rated 2 out of 5 by QGal Not Happy With This Purchase
This necklace is a big disappointment. The silver is dark and dull. It flips even though it's 16" and sits at the base of my neck. It has no presence. What a disappointment! I'm sending it back. I gave it two stars for the design.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fussymomma It's Perfect if you size it right
I consider this a neck-piece not a necklace, if you order the size that sets at the base of your throat it will not roll, this neckpiece will roll if you have drape with that said I ordered the 16' inch and it sets beautifully and is so outstandingly beautiful I'm thrilled I found it.
Women and Men tell me how pretty my necklace is and you know how good that feels.
I also ordered the bracelet and also love it.... I love the look but the quality and master design makes me feel good to wear them.... my go to ....
Rated 5 out of 5 by shoparoundsue I LOVE IT!
I am very pleased with this. Yes, it does flip, but rights itself immediately. The stones have a nice color and evenly saturated. This is going to be my 60th birthday present.
I love that it is not too wide. Perhaps some of the other customers who complained about the flipping need to try a different length, I think the shorter the better. I purchased the 16". Very special piece. I have the earrings from several years ago with the 3 charms and can wear the heart garnet charms. I also have the inside out rhodolite garnet hoops as an alternate. I feel very chic indeed in this piece!
Rated 4 out of 5 by BonitaS Beautiful Necklace!
I decided to try this piece at the reduced price and easy pay, because I recently purchased the bracelet. I read the negative reviews, and am wondering if they would have been different if the price had been lower. Regarding the complaints that the necklace sometimes twists, it does. But I have noticed that before long it 'self corrects' as I move around. I believe this style of necklace tends to flip a little regardless of who makes it. On the plus side, the silver work is weighty and the links are meticulously designed. Since I don't especially like shiny silver, the muted silver is fine with me and is a trademark of Ripka jewelry. The heart-shaped stones are sparkly, and could pass for either dark pink or red depending upon what color clothing is worn. I will mention that the necklace and bracelet will not connect with each other to make the necklace longer, but that's fine. Although I would have liked for the price to be even lower, I am satisfied with my purchase.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SoLuv2Shop Very Disappointing
I bought this item before any customer reviews were available. Now that I have the item, several negative reviews have been posted, and I agree with them. This item is very disappointing.
I bought the 16" size and it will not lay flat on my neck. It rolls up on its edge or turns over completely -- obviously a design flaw.
Also, the rhodolite gemstones are so tiny that you hardly notice them. They have absolutely no sparkle and are so heavily encased in the silver setting that you can't tell they are heart-shaped.
The silver is chunky and clunky. Too thick and heavy for something that is supposed to look delicate. It is definitely NOT DELICATE. Also, the silver has no shine to it. There is a matte finish, so it ends up looking dull gray rather than silver.
This item is DEFINITELY NOT WORTH $550 (over $600 when you add in shipping and tax). For that much money, I expect excellent design and beauty. Judith Ripka really dropped the ball on this one. I sent it back.

I order both the necklace and bracelet and both went back. I agree with all the reviews little sparkle very dull looking and flips no matter how you wear it, necklace and the bracelet both. Both of mine went back.
Rated 2 out of 5 by bbobby2 Overpriced and flips
I like JR's rhodolite hearts and have a JR charm bracelet that is full of the charms that uses them and diamonique. I thought this necklace would be a nice compliment to the bracelet, but it doesn't sparkle near as much without the diamonique and because the rhodolite hearts look smaller than those on the charms. I also don't like that it flips constantly and the hearts don't show. I think this piece is more casual that I was expecting for $600. Maybe at half the price I would consider it again. Back it went.
