Rated 1 out of 5 by oceanviewTL Unfortunate Quality
As a confirmed Ripkanista it pains me to write a negative review, but this ring and the stones are not up to JR's standards. I have traveled to Buenos Aires, and seen the various levels of quality of Rhodocrosite. These stones appear to be of the lowest quality, and the setting is a dirty-looking dark gray. I have lots of JR jewelry and will keep adding to my collection, but will avoid purchasing anything with this stone.

I love Judith's designs and was excited to purchase this ring as an early Easter gift because of how the Rhodocrosites reminded me of Easter eggs. When I received it I was totally disappointed. The stones were a washed out peachy/flesh tone color and were all mismatched and a few of them even had tiny cracks across the tops of the stones.. There were also 2 stones that looked like they were stained with a baby-poo brown color. I did like the silver presence and hefty weight of the ring, but a piece of the carving from the fleur de lis on the undergallery was not smoothened out which left some of the metal sticking out, causing it to scratch my finger. The final straw for returning the ring was when a friend said that the ring looked like brain matter. After spending $300 on a ring I expected better quality, better stones and a better finishing on the ring. Hopefully these issues can be resolved and a better quality ring will be recreated in the future.

The ring is beautiful, has presence, and is the perfect shade of pink! I ordered this to wear on my ring finger, but it can easily hold its own on the pointer or middle. I like that there are just enough diamonique stones to add a bit of sparkle. I was very pleased when I opened the box.
