Rated 4 out of 5 by Claude Rains WOW - THE ONE I RECEIVED IS STUNNING!
I have wanted an oval diamond engagement ring for 37 years, but spending those dollars on such an unnecessary expense is ridiculous. In this age of better simulated stones, I've been hunting for 2 years for a quality made, simple but pretty ring with a nice setting and under gallery with a stone that TRULY looked like a believable diamond for me. I finally ordered this JR piece out of desperation (the photo online makes the ring look totally crummy), and my search officially ENDED today when this arrived. What a stunner! The halo is perfect, the small stones down the side of the shank sparkle, there is both sparkle AND fire in the main stone - I know the stone is cut very well as there is no "bow tie" in the oval stone (if not well cut, elongated cuts of highly faceted stones such as oval, pear, marquis, have a dark line running east to west across the midline known as a "bow tie" because of it's shape). I gave this ring 4 stars because I have no idea how it will wear, but right now it looks like a 10! I'm pretty good at telling the difference between real and fake, this SCREAMS real, so much so that I just ordered 2 more of these rings as back ups. Hopefully they will be just as beautiful.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Disappointing
I love the smaller center stone, and the overall size of the ring, it is not over the top as other Ripka pieces are. The disappointing part is that the silver is so white and the stone is so white it almost looks like crystal. Ripka's silver is usually polished to a darker color making it look like white gold. Sadly this ring just looks fake and cheap.

I recieved this yesterday and so far im not really pleased. I ordered this to replace my origional wedding ring and although i love the style of it and the details, the metal feels and looks kind of cheap and was hoping the diamonique wouldnt look so fake

I'm hesitant to write a review on this ring because it's SO special, I don't want everyone to run out and buy it! BUT- I have to share the news anyway, this ring is gorgeous! I ordered 5 Judith Ripka rings as a replacement for my original, very out of style, wedding ring. This is THE one for me (the remaining "contestants" are being returned). Although I loved all the other pieces, this ring, in particular, is the most realistic/believable. It has a stunning sparkle and the size of the main stone is very believable as to be a true diamond. I was able to have it sized down without any problem at my local jeweler. I've only had it a few days, so time will tell as to how it holds up, but I'm confidant it will be my wedding ring for years to come.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keree Simply Delightful And In Good Taste!
And everything Judith and the team intended! This is a precious, stunning ring! I am absolutely smitten by this little piece of magic. I wasn't sure what to expect after having reviewed the reviews. I knew I had to wait for myself. Judy and her team have an outstanding track record with me. I adore all the pieces. When I opened the little sage green box and proceeded to unsnap the pouch the orchestra of delight proceeded and won me over. It's so true. You must try it for yourself. Judy's pieces will definitely respond to the you and decide if they take to you or not. All of the pieces respond to me as if they have a magical quality to them. Their authenticity becomes heightened and almost real when you place them on the hand, wrist or décolleté. Bravo, bravo! The symphony is playing her sweet song of delight!

This ring is very suttle for me but I am used to a bit more bling. The stones appeared dull to me and oval didn't compliment my fingers, no fault of the ring or Judith. I've worn it for a couple of weeks and it holds up very well, carat is smaller than information given if there was a video I wouldn't of purchased knowing this wouldn't work for me.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Treca It's GORGEOUS!
It really is lovely. Not huge. Just the right size and comfortable. Oh and the sparklys are amazing....and yes I spelled it that way on purpose. Secret of Nimh reference. :) Ring has a beautiful gallery. You can't see in the pictures provided on QVC but there are little Diamonique stones that go around the gallery. It has a very antique feel to it. I'm so glad I tried it. There were a lot of Ripka pieces that I have been wanting to try but I never saw them on EZ pay and when they had it for all Ripka pieces I got every piece I wanted to try and this one ended up being my favorite. So far this is the only one I'm keeping. I'm waiting for the eternity band to come in hopes that it will match it well. Nothing was left out in this ring. If you are not use to wearing at least a .75ct to 1ct. center diamond this might be too big for your taste or not believable looking to you. I would still give it a shot though. Just keep that in mind. Very happy with purchase. Wish they would have put it on EZ pay sooner!
