J158364 - Judith Ripka Sterling Diamonique & Simulated Gemstone Ring
While this ring doesn't match the color in Judith's emerald and pearl earrings (I love them), the deeper color of the lab created stone is a close match to an emerald and diamond pendant that my husband gave me for our anniversary. The ring is not something that I wear every day or even a lot; but, I am glad that I ordered this ring and kept it. To me, the ring looks very expensive on the hand.
I got this in sapphire and may get it in ruby- wish it came in clear!!! It's heavy and stunning-esp. with a solitaire ring. Judith, please bring more large ct wt Asscher cut rings!!! Love your taste!!!!!!
Love JR! I am a huge collector BUT this ring wasn't a favorite. I picked the Ruby as it is my b-day stone (July). The ruby color I would give 5 + stars but the make of the ring a -5 (if I could). The gallery of the ring is beautiful but you can't close your fingers when wearing this ring, it's very very uncomfortable. The stones are too big to go so far in between the fingers. The design is spread out too far.
Unfortunately I am returning it & will go back & see what else I can find from JR, which won't be difficult! :)
Not what I hoped for
I received this ring in the emerald in size 5. It fit more snug than other JR rings in the same size. The emeralds on the sides are not even seen and it makes the ring feel bulky and uncomfortable. I wish the emeralds were closer together near the top. Unfortunately it must go back.
This ring is great in theory. When I saw this online I couldn't order the emerald version fast enough! I ordered it in sizes 5 and 6 to make sure of a good fit. I sent both back! Because the large size of the stones, the gallery sits up high and wide, creating an awkward donut around the finger, and uncomfortable fit. The color of the emerald stones was perfect though. Please try again with smaller stones and maybe smaller diamonique in between!
I loved the look of this ring - sort of Art Deco in feel - and ordered both the Sapphire and Emerald. What a huge disappointment!! I am a big fan of Judith's, but this ring is not, in my opinion, up to her usual high standards. The stones look fake and sit too far over on the shank of the ring making it extremely uncomfortable to wear. Much as I wanted to love these, they are being returned.
I ordered the created ruby version of this ring in a size 6. The stones were okay but not as nice as another created ruby ring I purchased from Judith. I really hoped this ring would be the one for me but the fit on my hand was odd. The gap between the band and stone setting caused the ring to sit higher and wider than comfortable for me. I couldn't see the colored stones on either side of the ring when I tried to put my fingers together (not easy with this one on). Sadly this one goes back.
Not a Keeper!
I find this ring: 1) too thick making it unwearable, 2) has a fake emerald look, 3) overpriced, and 4) unattractive!!!
I have come to love JR so much it has taken me over, but when this ring arrived I was just in shock !!! I do not want to be to critical, so with this being said, it deffenatly looks nothing like at all in person the way it does here. I got the emerald. Although the emerals look fake and very very unreal, that is not the entirety of my dissapointment. The entire makeup of this ring as a whole was a huge dissapointment to me!! I love JR, but just not this ring!! Sorry Judith love ya, just not this ring :0(
