Rated 5 out of 5 by BK613 A WOW OF A RING!
I GOT THIS RING YESTERDAY AND WORE IT IMMEDIATELY. I KNOW IT'S NOT A CEYLON SAPPHIRE AT THIS GREATLY REDUCED PRICE, BUT IT LOOKS FABULOUS WITH ANY OUTFIT, WHETHER JEANS & A JEAN JACKET OR A FINE PAIR OF SLACKS OR DRESS. THE SIZE IS LARGE, BUT NOT OVERWHELMING. THE SIDE SAPPHIRES TINKLY LIKE STARS IN THE DAYLIGHT.

Just received this ring and it is just beautiful. I bought this for myself for my 65th birthday and I am so glad that I did. I was sitting on the fence about it because of the price but I went for it and I am so happy that I did. If you thinking about go for it you won't be sorry. Way to go JR.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Leisel Sorely disappointed after waiting so long.
I agree with "I can't believe it". I've wanted this ring and the matching watch for years, ever since Judith brought it to QVC. I just couldn't afford it. When I saw the event price of $398.40 I thought about it in spite of the reviews and decided to get it and due without something else. I received it yesterday and I'm so disappointed. I love JR, but this is not her ring. I too have a grey line running down the middle of the large blue doublet, north to south, and it looks terrible. I took a chance and lost. To replace it would cost more and would I get the same quality? I don't know if I should take the chance. The smaller stones are beautiful, but people do look at the large stone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jq Pleasantly surprised - beautiful ring
I was doubtful about this ring but it was on an event or OTO price (i don't remember which) and easy pay and Lisa made it look so beautiful that I jumped in despite other negative reviews - Glad I took the chance because my ring looks exactly like the presentation and is beautiful - I have tried ruby or sapphire doublets in the past and been disappointed with the underlying stone having inclusions that ruined the look, but this ring does not have any issues - it is elegant and the stones on the side are a perfect blue to compliment the center stone - Elegant in design and quality is superb -ring fits slightly more snugly than my other JR rings so if you are in between sizes, you may want to size up depending on which finger you want to wear the ring, it is a perfect ring for either hand and looks great on the first, second or third finger - I expect the ring will become an heirloom for my niece

WOW just about says it all! My center stone looks exactly as pictured. A truly lovely shade of blue, and the side stones are a stunning sapphire blue that twinkle and dance in the light. A treasure to wear and pass on in the family.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Gonzola I Can't Believe It!
I eagerly awaited the arrival of this ring expecting it to be more special than any previously purchased Ripka ring. My, was I shocked! There are rough snags on each of the corners of the ring and so much so that it actually snags the skin on my finger, so I'm sure it would really destroy clothing! Of course it should not exist on an item of this price. I really can't believe the lack of quality of this ring. . . . .inside and out. I would expect more detail on the inside as well but it is not there. The price is absolutely outrageous for the workmanshp and I can't imagine the stones are worth that much. There is a strange white line in the large stone. I actually have JR rings from the past which look far superior to this ring and cost much less. If the $ are all in the stones then so be it, but I don't think it is worth the price. I am just bowled over by this one and it has already been returned. And last but not least, I received it in a smashed box!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by judy in FL Love it!!
Just love this ring!! I also have it in ginger quartz so I knew how it would look and feel on my hand. I got this to go with the Estate Pia wide cuff with sapphire baguettes up the center. Altho the ring doesn't exactly match the sapphire baguettes of the bracelet, it looks great with the bracelet!
The ring is navy blue to purple in artificial light, and in sunlight sometimes the cuts in the crystal doublet show (as white lines) and the stone is a dark blue with a slight grayish tint. I love the difference in how it looks in various lights. The blue diamonique along the sides of the ring look black and sparkly due to the black prong setting. I never thought I would be so thrilled to have a blue ring but I am pleased with it and keeping it, despite the (ofcourse) high price. I am glad I ordered before the earlier 2 negative reviews were posted!!
I also have the ruby doublet (Monaco?) ring that is heart shaped and set very very high, so I knew to expect a more cloudy look from the doublet than with a real ruby or sapphire stone.

Was so disappointed...The quality was not worth the price...When held to the light, sapphire had white lines going through it, which made the stone looked cracked..sending it back immediately!
