Judith Ripka Ceramic and Stainless Steel Diamonique Bracelet Watch
Bought this watch last year (2013) in small (I have a wrist size 6) and it fits perfectly. I like to wait and try on my purchases before I jump to conclusions and write reviews. I wore this watch all winter and it is glorious. Only Judith makes a taped ceramic bracelet for the watch (that I know of). That makes it look more feminine and elegant. I really love this watch. Judith, please make this watch in colors for spring and summer (cream would be really nice). This watch is worth every penny.
Sizing way off!
I purchased the large because the average was sold out at the time and it said two links could be removed. Yes this is true but you have to take it to a jeweler to pay to have it done. Then I looked online and saw that the average size was now available, so I sent the large back and purchased the average. It's still too big! I bought two ceramic watches from the Isaac brand in average and they are perfect. I'm so tired of the inconsistent sizing on QVC! This is becoming a big problem not only in clothing but now in jewelry as well. I think the watch itself is beautiful, I bought the chocolate, but I have to send it back.
Absolutely beautiful watch!
What a wonderful surprise to open the package and find this gorgeous Judith Ripka watch. It is even better in person than it was on television or online. It is the perfect choice for daytime and dressy enough to wear to any evening event. The Diamonique stones are clear, but so large as to be gaudy. I have a small wrist, and I have to remove links, but the cave looks very nice on me. I think any woman looking for a black faced watch will be delighted by this selection. Thank you Judith for another winner. You have hit it out of the ball park!
WANT WHITE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I own this lovely watch in chocolate brown. First i want to tell you why I love this watch. I love the size of the case and ceramic bracelet. I love the 2 hearts at top and bottom with the diamonique. The 1/8" less makes the watch more feminine. It is not boyfriend or old school when i could not see the time. I have been watching for the WHITE ceramic band to come back for a whole YEAR now.. Please bring it back this spring and I will purchase the watch. Thanks Miss Judith. Iease
My sister got the white, it looked pretty, but I already have a white ceramic watch. This watch in chocolate brown looked cheaply made. My ceramic watch cost a third of the price and looks a lot more expensive. Sent it back the next day.
What a beauty!!!
I just received the ceramic watch in the chocolate brown version. What a beautiful brown color!!! I love the sparkle of the dmq . The ceramic is durable & weighty but not extreme on my wrist. The deployment clasp is another great feature. My only regret is not being able to get the black version also. This watch is a definite keeper. I will wear this often.
Not worth the money!!
I love her jewerly, but this watch is really not her best!! Runs large, looks cheep!! Took it out of box, put it on, looked good at it, then put it back in box for a quick return. May I recommend Issac Ceramic Bagette Watch!! Worth the money!!
Link fell out. Cost $15 to submit to warranty. Unable to follow up on the status of repair via their website. Now after almost 3 months and having to mail a letter, I have been advised this is not covered under the warranty. Of course I am paying to have it repaired. I love my Ripka jewelry, but now I am going to have to stop watching and buying. I paid around $300 for this watch and it did not last 2 years. Watch would have been given 5 stars, but expected better service from Judith Ripka
What a Beautiful Watch!!
Granted, I just received mine in the mail not 6 hours ago but I wanted to comment on the weight and the craftsmanship of the watch. I had seen so many comments on the supposed heaviness of this watch, and while it is true - you know you have this watch on your wrist, This Watch is certainly NOT heavy if you were to weigh it against the really heavy weight watches out there in the ceramic world or the large heavy 'fashion' watches that are all the rage, and you know what it means when you see/hear that word! You've spent your money on something that's only good until the battery quits or the strap breaks cause that watch isn't worth the pesos you paid for it...but you won't ever feel that way about Judith Ripka watches!
This watch is lux and to me it's not heavy, it simply has presence! It's not some weak sister that can't make up her mind, it's there and doesn't mind who knows it.
The ceramic band is just gorgeous, it's actually warm to the touch on me (which surprised me! I thought it would feel cool to the touch) - I got it in the cocoa color so it looks like a cup of hot cocoa ;-)) and the Diamonique stones surrounding the face give off a beautiful glow. The clasp is very well done, it's lovely to look at and extremely secure, yet easy to open! The small JR trademark hearts at 12 and 6 are a nice touch and the Arabic numerals are truly easy to read for anyone with or without vision issues <G>
What watches there are, you should grab! This is an incredible find.
MY WATCH JUST BASICALLY FELL OFF MY ARM BECAUSE THE LINKS CAME APART. NOT WHAT I EXPECTED FOR THE PRICE I PAID. NOT REORDERING FOR SURE.
Feminine with an edge
I love this watch. I have several from Judith Ripka but this may be my new favorite. It is so well designed and functional, though it looks just the opposite. This looks high end, the gun metal ceramic bracelet is both edgy and classy and the face is beautiful with diamoniques surrounding it. It also has nice large numbers making it easy to see. If you don't have this I highly recommend you get while the price is so great!
I bought this watch when it was first on QVC. I've worn it many, many times and each time I do, I get compliments on it. I am not easy on my watches and this one has held up very well. I LOVE the Coco look of it - and so does everyone else!
