Judith Ripka Sterling 2.0ct Diamonique Laurel 18" Necklace
This necklace is so pretty! It has an amazing texture and dimension to it that it almost looks like something a princess would wear around her neck. It is light an airy and comfortable and the diamonique is beautifully placed and distributed in the right places.
This is truly a unique and one of those once in a lifetime pieces! Allison Ripka talked me into purchasing this when she aired one early morning, and I am very happy that she did! Thank you Allison!!!
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY
VERY CHEAP LOOKING, VERY POOR QUALITY ESPECIALLY FOR THE MONEY
Just received this necklace and love it. I don't agree with some other reviewers who thought it is too "light weight" for a Judith Ripka piece. . It is delicate but has all of Judith's style and craftsmanship. I'm impressed with the intricacies of the workmanship, the number of diamoniques, even the tiny ones on the small ovals, and the overall "wow" of the piece. It lays perfectly on the neck and it can be made smaller by hooking the lobster claw over a few links. The current price and easy pays make it a no-brainer.
Light & Airy Beauty
I wanted this necklace for quite sometime and then got it with 6 ez pays & free s&h. I am so happy with this beautiful necklace -- it is a lightweight necklace and I like that I can shorten it . It lies perfectly flat on the neck. I have gotten so many compliments whenever I wear it. It goes with any bracelet and earrings and can be worn casual to dressy. Very pleased with this purchase.
Sorry, but I really can't think of anything else to say that the prior reviewer hasn't already said. This piece is pretty but ridiculously overpriced. It is so light and "floppy" that it is difficult to get on. And the size, 18", is way too big for me so it shifts around on the neck. Returning.
Even though this is JUDITH RIPKA piece it is cheap looking. Stay away from this one.
I ordered this on waitlist and didn't hold out hope to get it. Then when I saw it shipped, I panicked because I had just ordered more from the past show! I wanted to hate it...but...I LOVE IT! Nothing else like it in the collection! It's lightweight, but I'm glad! It feels great on - lays perfectly flat - and the best part...it's somewhat adjustable! With the lobster claw clasp, I can make it shorter (my preferred length) very easilly! I wore it for the first time today to work (just enough bling to be noticed... but very believable!), and the vote was...KEEP IT! So happy!
Lovely, feminine beauty!
I got this necklace during Judith's November visit as an OTO, so I paid considerably less for it than the current QVC price. It's a light piece, airy and sparkly, and perfect for me, since heavy necklaces, while gorgeous, often give me headaches and exacerbate neck issues I have. Even though it's airy, it still covers plenty of real estate ladies, and it is very lady-like, a classic, like a strand of pearls. I can wear it for everyday, and it will be stunning at holiday parties too, or under a suit jacket for work (if I wasn't retired). If you're an elegant, chic lady, I'd say go for it. I don't have any issues keeping it flat on my neck, probably because I don't just throw it on, but make sure it's all facing one direction by holding it in one hand and running the other along it to ensure everything's going the same direction before putting it on. It doesn't twist while on, and sits so lightly I hardly know I'm wearing it. If you like classic beauty, this one's for you.
I received this necklace last week and it is a lighter weight piece from Judith and it looks so real. I am very pleased that it is substantial looking without the weight around my neck. The diamonique is subtle and the design of the necklace is unique. It's gonna look great with a cocktail dress for the holidays.
Yes And No
Like others I am a JR fan and was also anxiously awaiting this necklace but have really had to push myself to find the enthusiasm that comes so easily when I received other Ripka pieces. while it has subtly attractive design qualities, it is light weight but my major difficulty occurred putting it on and trying to keep it straight and making sure all the little hearts were "right side up" while putting it on and had to keep checking to make sure it wasn't twisted on my neck....perhaps if it was a trifle weightier it would lay better...regrettably I am returning it.
Just so so...
First, lets establish that I'm a Ripkanista. . This necklace was such a departure from my other pieces and I really wanted to love it, but just couldn't justify the purchase. To me, it looked like a bent wire hanger around my neck. I didn't like the color of the silver and the diamonique was almost unnoticeable. Also, it was uncomfortable to wear.
Disappointed by this necklace
I saw this necklace on air and thought I would really love it. I just received it and was disappointed when I took it out of the box. It just didn't have the WOW factor that I was hoping for given the price of the necklace. For the amount I paid it just wasn't a good enough value for me to keep. So, I'm sending it back. I have many items from JR and truly love her work - this piece just wasn't one of the ones that I love.
