Judith Ripka Ceramic and Stainless Steel Diamonique Bracelet Watch
Love, Love, Love this Chocolate Watch!!!
Wow, Wow, Wow!!!
So glad I got this on clearance before it sold out!
I have ordered 2 other watches by Judith; Coral leather wrap watch & Red silicone watch...both did not do a thing for me and were returned!
Ceramic was my mission to find. Saw Isaacs, but too Blah!!! Came across this on clearance and decided, o.k. one, last time this will be for Judith in watches. Wasn't sure about the "chocolate" ceramic color either? Earth to Kristy, This watch is "GORGEOUS!!!...AND A KEEPER"!!!
Sizing: Only "large" was available in this ceramic watch. It fits like a bracelet on me, turning around my wrist and up my forearm, but who cares, it looks "rich" and like a million on!!! If I decide I want it more fitted I can have a jeweler remove a link or two.
Details: As I said above, Wow, Wow, Wow!!! It is gorgeous and weighty on. The Diamonique shine like no tomorrow...like the "real deal" in diamonds!!!! Love the mother of pearl bronze face and surrounding Diamonique time stones, the 2 Diamonique hearts, one on top, one on bottom of face of watch, the "JR" initial on the deployment clasp, that rich, dark chocolate ceramic color, and the Stainless Steel & Swiss movement!!!
Thank you Judith for the detail and luxury time piece on this watch! Please, oh Please, bring this watch back!!! Thank you QVC for the discount and 5 easy pay!!!
Chocolate is Gorgeous
The whole thing shines and sparkles, not just the cz. Much better looking in person. Can be worn with more formal attire. Very generous fit. It is snug on me because I have a 8.5"+ wrist, but it is so gorgeous I would NEVER NEVER send it back. I will lose weight first! Just a beautiful watch. Don't hesitate to get it. It will make a lot of women GASP.
I have this watch and I love it! I purchased this watch when it first came out and have had it for about 2 years now, and it is perfect. The clasp stays "put", it keeps great time, and no links have come out, or apart. . In fact, I have worn this watch out to where I stable my horses, groomed horses with this watch on, with no problems at all. I have slept in this watch, and it has been fine. I am not hard on my jewelry, but I do wear it, and expect it to hold up in most circumstances. Perhaps the quality on some of these watches needs to be more carefully scrutinized, but my watch, as has been all my Judith Ripka pieces, has been fine. I have not returned a piece because of quality or workmanship. The pieces that I have purchased recently still have the same quality as the pieces that I have purchased from QVC many years ago, so I do not understand the problems that ladies have experienced.
stone setting is NOT strong
I have been using this watch for several months now and recently noticed that A STONE IS MISSING -- it is upsetting and I have stopped wearing it since. :(
I wish I could send it back FOR REPAIR... is there such a service in QVC?
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
