Judith Ripka Sterling & 14K Clad Diamonique Rondel Station Necklace
Gold Too Green!!
For thoese who think this looks like gold, please look at it side by side, AGAIN. I love JR's line and own many pieces, but I am surprised how one item can vary in color amongst other 14K clad pieces. The gold simply needs more warmth in it to look anything like real, or evevn her other clad pieces; it has too much green. Otherwise, the design is just beautiful!
I waited forever to purchase this necklace, it is beautiful but is scratchy on my skin. I do have very sensitive skin so for the price I would hardly ever wear it. I purchased it for a Judith Ripka pendant and will have to keep trying. I wanted the country link necklace but was sold out before I could order it. I hate to return but it is to much money just to keep in a jewelry box.
JR sterling & Rose gold clad diamonique necklace
This is a nice chain, wish it could have been bolder, this great with enhancers/pendants. With that said, it's not heavy chain. Now, I am waiting for more JR 's Rose clad enhancers.
Wore this necklace with a v-neck sweater to work and got many compliments. I love Judith's gold clad collection as I wear mostly gold. I do however have many of her sterling pieces. I just ordered her new rolo bracelet in gold and I think both pieces will look great together.
Purchased this in the 20" gold clad and while I love the design of this necklace I have to agree with others that the color does not match up to my other JR gold pieces and it also does not have the weight (presence if you will) that they have... Please, Please do not start to cheapen out on this line!!!
this is so beautiful!. i bought the rose gold clad and added my own real diamond heart enhancer. i t's just elegant and gorgeous!! what more can i say? love it!!!!!
I love everything about this versatile chain! It is adjustable, looks great with or without an enhancer and is very comfortable. It matches my other gold clad pieces perfectly. It is a special piece and I feel special wearing it. My husband purchased for me the gold clad "Love" enhancer for Valentine's Day and they look beautiful together!!!
Great design Wrong color
I agree with the other reviewer. I love this necklace and really wanted to keep it. However it doesn't match any of my other Judith clad. For that matter it doesn't match any of my other gold or other brands gold clad. It is too light of a color. So I must reluctantly send it back.
Gorgeous and tasteful
I bought this and several other pieces of Judith Ripka's 14k Clad during her recent show. I thought it would be too good to be true and would return if I could find any reason not to keep it. Well, it is certainly not going back and I'm thrilled with the necklace. I've purchased Judith Ripka sterling pieces before but never the 14k gold clad. I'm a huge fan now. This looks like it is a $5,000.00 necklace. Bravo Judith! Please keep making these gorgeous pieces. I also bought the Pearl and gold link necklace and earrings. I look forward to taking these pieces on trips and changing the looks. Love your designs. All were perfection. Ladies, do not hesitate to purchase any of these items, you will only be sorry if you don't!
Washed out "14K Gold" Clad
The design of this necklace is exquisite. It has many features that make it flexible, such as the 18 & 20 inch adjustable length, adjusting the overall length even shorter with the lobster claw and the large links, wearing an enhancer in the center larger link, etc. However, the color of this necklace is a BIG departure from Judith's other 14K clad items of which I have purchased many. It is a washed out light color that looks more like 10K. The point is that it stands out as noticably pale when worn with her other 14K pieces. The reason for purchasing a collection of Judith's items is to have them all match in color as well as sharing the same design elements that define them as a "collection". As much as I hate to return it because it has a beautiful design, it's barely gold color. Some other items I ordered are similarly pale and lack the vibrant 14K gold clad color of my cuffs, bracelets, enhancers, and other 14K gold clad Judith Ripka items I've purchased in the past. I'm very disappointed and concerned about quality going forward relative to her 14K gold clad line. She'd have to change the color back to the vibrant gold it was to keep me as a customer -- like the 14K clad diamonique cuff which is so gorgeous.
Perfect everyday necklace...
I received this necklace in both the yellow and rose clad and they are both just perfect. Good weight , great texturing and the diamonique rondels are a nice touch. The O ring in the center is great for enhancers but the necklace looks lovely without any as well. Since the links are all round it can be clasped shorter than the 18 inches if desired.
I wanted this gold clad station necklace with the center loop for enhancers to wear with an 18K South Sea Pearl and Diamond enhancer I had made for me many years ago, which I usually wore with my pearls. I've also worn it with other gold neck pieces I have but was never really satisfied with them. This necklace has good weight and the golds work great together. I thought it would look nice but it looks absolutely Fabulous!!
I also ordered a gold enhancer from Judith's collection to wear with it as well as ordering the necklace in silver to go with all the Ripka silver and gemstone enhancers I have. I have one of her older, heavy silver chains with a center loop that I wear with her pendants, but it is shorter and I have been waiting for a similar look in a longer length.
Thank you Judith as this is exactly what I have been waiting for.
