Rated 5 out of 5 by Sita21 A true statement piece
This was my first Judith Ripka purchase a few years ago. I just purchased another one to give to my mother to commemorate her 77th birthday. She loves it! This is a very comfortable bracelet. It can go from casual wear to formal wear.
Rated 3 out of 5 by shopgirl8 So Pretty!! - but faulty clasp
I love the looks and bold style of this bracelet! The CZ's are large and sparkely. This is not a bracelet you want if you are trying to present it as real diamonds(because the CZ's are large). That being said, it is a very pretty bracelet! The workmanship is so beautiful. However, I'm experiencing trouble with the clasp and twice I have found this bracelet in my lap. I reluctantly ended up returning it because it was too expensive to lose.

I was on the fence about purchasing this bracelet for quite some time. When I finally decided to go for it, the 7-1/4" size in sterling was unavailable. I kept checking to see if it had come back in stock, and sure enough I got lucky. To be honest, I was somewhat reluctant to order it due to the negative reviews regarding the clasp. Well, I received my bracelet today and it's gorgeous! It's weighty, but not too heavy to stack with other bracelets and what a presence it makes on your wrist! Judith's sterling is not overly shiny (which I like) and while I was a little concerned the links/princess cut stones might be too large, they're not. Insofar as the negative comments about the clasp, I know from experience with other bracelets with the same type of insert closure that if you take a thin little screwdriver or other implement and gently insert it to ever so slightly "open" up the tongue part of the closure (the little opening between the top and bottom of the tongue below the little release button), when you then insert it into the box opening you'll hear it click. If you're unsure about doing this any jeweler should make that minor adjustment for free.

This bracelet is absolutely beautiful! However, the safety catch does not keep the bracelet secure. I should've sent it back when it came unlatched the first time. Because I loved the style so much I kept it. I no longer have it because we had a dinner event which I wore this bracelet too and when I got home it was no longer on my wrist. What a waste of $300+ dollars. Judith, need to make your jewelry more secure!

After pining over this beautiful bracelet, I ordered it over the summer. I loved it. Unfortunately, I too lost mine without knowing where it came off. It needs a better safety latch .
I am so very disappointed in this as I love Judith Ripka's pieces and have not ever written a negative review.
This was quite expensive. I hope someone in her company reads this and makes the correction on her bracelets but putting a better safety latch on them. I would feel very bad if I said nothing about her beautiful bracelet and this too happened to another customer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Abbeygirl Low Quality
Well....what can I say...I ordered this maybe two yeas ago and unfortunately had to return it due to an unforeseen expense. I recently was able to re-order and just received in the mail. This is NOT of the same quality as it was two years ago....what a shame...although still as expensive. On the wrist it looks about the same very beautiful but when you hold it and examine it....it has none of the great qualities it once had. It is very light weight, the metal in which its put together is much thinner and has a very inexpensive quality to it. This bracelet could not be more over priced for the quality. I am finding this more and more with Judith Ripka. I most likely would not purchase anymore from her in the future. Such a shame I have wanted this bracelet for many years. I gave this one star due to the change in quality....you should not offer a product and then change the quality for the same high price down the road...

I just got this in and LOVE this bracelet! It is amazing! I can stop looking at it on my wrist!
Rated 4 out of 5 by howellja Compliments, compliments, but
I received many many compliments on this bracelet. Last week I lost my argument with the bracelet and later lost the bracelet. I'm still hoping Iit will "show up". I ordered a new one today. If the first one is located Ill have two -- they should look great together.

I wear this bracelet every day! It is so beautiful! It looks like an estate piece, the workmanship impeccable. The stones sparkle and shine like real diamonds. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Other customers are right the clasp is defective. My husband and sons gave this to me for my 50th birthday. If I pull slightly the bracelet comes undone. It's beautiful but I am afraid it will fall off one day without me knowing. Very surprised QVC hasn't done a recall of some sort to fix customers brackets. So much for Judith's stuff
Rated 1 out of 5 by rapunzliam defected
I received this bracelet that was crimped and would not lay flat on my wrist. the previous person failed to mark it defected so now I have to pay for its return. Its pretty but over priced if this is what can happen to it in the future. I'll stick to epiphany from now on.
Rated 5 out of 5 by chrisq2 Very very happy with this bracelet
I guess I got lucky because the bracelet I received is fantastic. It shines, it sparkles and it's just plan awesome! I ordered the Average because I had a feeling the Large would be too big. I go back and forth between the Average and the large on a lot of these bracelets. Bracelets are usually actually smaller in size than marked and I like extra drape so I usually go with the Large.
A few months ago, I ordered the 118 facet round cut tennis bracelet version of this in the Large when it was the TSV. It was way too long and I sent it back as soon as I realized I would never wear it. It's impossible to wear this type of bracelet if it's too large. Some bracelet styles can still be worn with extra drape, but not these, not by me anyway. Also I despise the double brilliant 118 facet cut. The regular faceting is sooo much prettier, to my eye.
I hate to suggest discontinuing a product, just because I don't like it, but I wish QVC would stop making the double-brilliant style and go back to normal stone cutting. The regular faceting looks so much prettier. Double brilliant looks totally fake.
The clasp on my bracelet is very secure. I've never had any trouble opening, or closing for that matter, any of JR's bracelets, as some report. I'm not sure why that is.
