Rated 1 out of 5 by muffin22 So sad..
This is a very pretty necklace BUT the first time I wore it, it broke! Luckily I had doubled it around my neck or else it would have fallen right off! I was at a function and someone noticed that it was broken apart up near my neck. For even the sale price, this should not have happened! Not sure yet if I will be exchanging or returning for refund, as I do like this piece. I have many JR pieces and this is the flimsiest, or should I say most delicate..hence the one lonely star
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamula Very Comfortable To Wear
I love just throwing this own by itself. I don't even have to unclasp it. I just let the little sparkly charm dangle down. Very comfortable and not too heavy. I haven't tried it yet, but I think this would also look great layered with the long interchangeable pearl link necklace and earrings or beaded necklaces. I've worn this with a blouse and it doesn't get lost in the folds of the fabric and is a great stand alone piece.
Rated 2 out of 5 by elij Not very strong
I love this necklace even though it feels a little flimsy. It's pretty and very long which I love. Very difficult to find a necklace this length. The first time I wore it however, it broke! So disappointing! I never write reviews but had to make an exception for this. Not up to QVC or Judith Ripka standards.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FourS Chocolate is yummy!
I have a small collection of chocolate gold pieces and this caps it off! I really love Judith's chocolate silver. The necklace in the 52" is a bargain at this price. It's light weight, so very wearable and looks sensational doubled. It's especially pretty paired with the 52" rose gold selection. Thanks, Judith!
Rated 5 out of 5 by anonymous007 Love the versatility--Beautiful details
I had been watching this chain for quite some time, when it appeared as a OTO value-(just slightly less than the current clearance price). Love the details on this, especially the fleur de lis, but also the little heart on the clasp. While I'm not usually one for diamonique in pieces, it really adds a beautiful little sparkle on this chain. It is so difficult to find a long chain these days and I couldn't have asked for anything more with the detail on the clasp and the lovely little charm.
I purchased four when it hit the air as a OTO--2 for me, 2 for gifts (and that was two more than I had planned to purchase ) . When they arrived I wished I had ordered more, so I got on waitlist for the gold . I originally wanted just the black since I am loving the gunmetal pieces and my first order was for the black and the silver. They are both lovely. Some of the black items have a slightly darker finish than others--I guess the black rhodium is difficult to get a consistent color, but they all blend well.
I am really loving the Verona collection (but trying to restrain myself from buying it all). It is a different feel than Judith's older pieces, but I love it even more than those. This chain is not what I would call lightweight. The links are thin as they appear in the video, and the chain feels exactly as I would expect a 52" with delicate links to feel . Hopefully, Judith will continue to bring classic, understated pieces in the Verona collection--just not so many at one time as it's difficult to resist them. Please Ms. Ripka, can we have a tubogas bracelet without diamonique???
Rated 4 out of 5 by josalyn A SLEEPER*****
This piece has a more delicate, understated appearance: upon closer inspection, each link is quite lovely. The Fleur de Lis, though small- is also a delicate decoration. I much prefer the "not in your face" approach to jewelry..... Judith has once again accomplished this with her ability to do both the bold & the subtle! And the weight of the 52" is fine; comfortable & easy*. I should have purchased one more, in gun metal.
Thank you Judith for your constant considerations of your clients.....
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Quality lacking
This is not up to quality. I have older Ripka chains that are far more substantial and cost much less. Very disappointing. Going back immediately and I will not be purchasing any other of her pieces as I feel quality has gone down while prices have increased greatly.
Rated 5 out of 5 by u4reah Good, subtle statement chain
A couple of reviewers mentioned the lack of weight this chain has. While it is not as hefty as some of the older Ripka stuff, it does have weight to it. It's not flimsy at all. I would think a chain of this length wouldn't be as versatile if heavier. It is very comfortable to wear doubled, tripled. I think it it is well made, quality wise. Not too much diamonique so there is just a touch of sparkle if you choose to wear it with the clasp showing. I have worn it a lot more than I initially thought I would. Usually I wear it doubled with higher end near neckline and lower end with the clasp/fleur de lis hanging down in the middle. Nice subtle statement piece without really screaming Ripka and Diamonque. I like mine very much.
