Judith Ripka Sterling 2.75ct Smoky Quartz and Channel Set Diamonique Ring
Love Love Love this Ring!
I have several smoky quartz rings, and this is now, by far, my FAVORITE! When Judith Ripka gets it right, she REALLY gets it right! The stone is beautiful, as is the setting. It's weighty, substantial, feels and looks like a good value. Did I mention I love LOVE love this ring??!! If you like smoky quartz and you're a Ripka Fan, then by all means, GET THIS RING!
First Judith purchase
I have been looking for a ring and purchased this because it was such a good price. When I opened the box I loved it immediately. The quality is excellent and the weight is impressive for the price. The smoky quartz is perfect as the color is deep and rich.
LOVE at FIRST SIGHT!!
I finally broke down and purchased this ring and boy am I glad that I did!! You would have to be a TRUE Smokey Quartz FAN to appreciate this ring; it is the just right shade of a root beer barrell, and just the right amount of diamonique! It is the most comfortable ring i have I do not even know I have it on! Judith, you really struck a home run on this ring!!!
On "MY" Finger!
Love this ring, stone is good quality and setting is good for stacking which surprised me. I have mixed with other designers' pieces, etc. Smoky stone color blends wells with so many color schemes. If I didn't have so many years of collecting Jewelry and other choices in my jewelry box, I would wear every day!
I've got many JR pieces, but I found this ring to be dull, and the stone was just 'flat', no sparkle or glow, and the color was more black brown than 'smoky'. Back it goes!
Bought this ring as a gift to myself and absolutely LOVE it!! Have had so many compliments. The setting is subtle and refined, not loud and garish as some rings appear. Very believable as real diamonds and the smokey quartz is a beautiful dark chocolate. Very comfortable and wearable. Looks like an estate ring worth lots of money.
Love the stone & its checkerboard faceting. Wish for less diamonique, although it is fairly subtle. Very eye-catching, gets lots of looks. Can't imagine why others think it is too demure. Wish Judith would do more single gemstone rings rather than fussy & unflattering 3 stone rings that look like outdated estate rings. Just less diamonique next time, please.
I was looking for a smokey quartz ring and thought this looked very pretty on TV. I was disappointed when I received it. Basically the design is pretty but it just didn't "wow" me when I saw it in person. I have returned it.
I've been looking high and low for a pretty but understated smoky quartz and finally found a knockout. Most are so big and bold. This one has a very clean setting with fine details and a beautiful stone. Love the checkerboard top and princess cut diamonique stones flanking it. Just for the record - my husband said he would't be caught dead wearing it as a pinky ring :) Thanks Judith!
Really wanted to like it but...
I loved the smoky quartz stone but I didn't like the setting. It looked like an old mans pinky ring. I also liked the diamonique princess stones but the setting was not my taste . I sent it back.
I love this ring. It is smaller than the usual large JR rings, but, so pretty and as Judith put it in the presentation, this ring is demure! The stone is a rich brown and the setting is very delicate and expensive looking. A nice comfortable ring for day and night!
If demure is what you are looking for, this is your ring. The picture enhances and magnifies the size of the setting and carving. This ring is very light weight and the carving details are miniscule. Color of stone is disappointing as well. (This ring is comforatble to wear.) I am disappointed becasue it looked lile a lovely and substantial ring on computer and telelvision screens. I have decided to return it.
