Rated 1 out of 5 by BensMom Toggle Closure too cheap For This Cost
Toggle closures are about the least secure closure for jewelry. Was shocked to see a bracelet at this price with this type of closure. I would not consider looking at this twice due to that closure style. Judith Ripka's pieces are uber expensive in general and so am disappointed she opted for this design. Other reviews highlight how easily toggle closures come undone. Do not recommend, especially at this extraordinarily high price by QVC standards.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bala Beautiful Bracelet but Defective Toggle
I am praising God for letting me find this bracelet when it fell off my wrist. I wore it to church today and thereafter I went to the mall and it fell off my wrist without me knowing it did. Luckily for me as I was entering another store I just lifted my right arm and this bracelet was gone. As anybody can imagine I was in panic mode but I traced my steps back as calmly as I could and half way to the previous store I was in I saw this bracelet on the floor. I said praise God because many people must have walked past but it didn't catch their attention until the rightful owner came back to claim it. Thank you God. It will be returned tomorrow because it must have a defective toggle that is not long enough for the bracelet to NOT become undone!

Another Great purchase from Judith.It is a splurge but if you can do it,do not hesitate.I am really surprise by the bad review.It is simply a magnificent piece.Really,Unique! The saturation of the stones and the clarity is exactly what we all expect from "Judith Ripka" collection.You won't be disappointed.I am a jewelry nut,however quite difficult to please being very detail oriented.This bracelet as it ALL...

The first one of these I received fell off my wrist when the loop slipped off the toggle. I thought it was a defective bracelet. The colors of the second one were overall more saturated HOWEVER it fell off also, narrowly escaping and aquatic adventure if you use your imagination.. It's really a shame b/c so much is right about this item.
Rated 2 out of 5 by 9176 Didn't seem worth $1,500
The bracelet is attractive but not impactful enough to warrant $1,500. The stones were not wow, clasp did not come across high-end and the silver actually took away. Ripka in-store jewelry has oxidized silver and perhaps QVC can begin exploring this technique to increase the wow factor. This bracelet is a lovely idea and could be fabulous if executed better.

Very happy with this beautiful bracelet! The stones on my bracelet have nice saturation, and even though I am not a fan of Diamonique, the bars of Diamonique add a lovely touch and glow...but not "over the top". I do wish the bracelet had cost less, but I love it and have received compliments! I have a 7 1/4-7 1/2 wrist, and the medium is a good fit.
Rated 2 out of 5 by stuckonshopping No wow factor and very overpriced
I put this bracelet on a number of different times, and tried to convince myself how beautiful it is. I finally came to the conclusion that if I had to force myself to find reasons why I should love this bracelet, then I really don’t. Truthfully, I opened the pouch and there was no wow factor. The stones are not color saturated, except for the whiskey color quartz, that is (1 stone out of 6). I can actually see the skin on my wrist looking down into each of the stones. The diamonique stones should never have been made part of a $1460 bracelet. If real diamonds were too expensive, perhaps a good quality white topaz (for example) should have been used. The stones sit on the top and side of my wrist, and the back of the bracelet is all chain with a toggle. So, then, I only got half a bracelet containing stones. (to make an honest comparison), I own a Ripka silver bracelet with an attached charm containing pave diamonds, and a Ripka silver and pave diamond ring that cost me half of what this bracelet cost. I own many other Ripka pieces purchased from QVC but this Ripka bracelet is overpriced based on the quality of the stones, both semi-precious and lab-created.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kaplan206 I need more stars for this beauty!
Words almost fail me in trying to describe this bracelet. The gems are hugs and well saturated in color, although not at all so dark you are unable to appreciate their loveliness. The details miss Judie used in the silver work is designed with one purpose - to support the gorgeous gems. I got the 71/4" for my six inch wrist because I like the bracelet to drape. I have a smaller silver Ambrosia bracelet, but it has a different feel to it. LOVE IT! Thanks, Miss Judie!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Babyblue BIG disappointment
For $1550 this did not wow me at all. All the gems stones were pale and washed out except for the whiskey quartz which in my opinion stuck out like a sore thumb. For this price point the gems should ALL have been good depth of color across the board. The one good thing was the gems appeared to be clean of visible flaws. The 4 bars of diamonique could easily have been real diamonds given the price and because they were not large stones. The clasp was not adequate hanging from two thin rows of silver strung through a toggle. The clasp should have been a much more expensive and secure design. Good grief I have a Lagos sterling and gold amethyst bracelet that has a double sided beaded spring that slides into a box and locks into place and it was only $900! I loved the concept of this bracelet but if it is ever reworked using vibrant stones and a really secure worthy clasp I would buy it again in a New York minute.
