Unless Judith fix the problem with the declining quality of the earring post, all my recent Judith Ripka earrings are rated 1 star and I sent them all back.
I started purchasing Judith Ripka on QVC 5 or 6 years ago, wish I had discovered her line even earlier when the pieces were quality & value. Anyway I was lucky to get a few of her older signature pieces and like them very much. Then 3 or more years back the quality of her jewelry start to decline and most notably the earring posts. They were so thin and bent easily and I had pieces broken after wearing only few times. I had stopped purchasing her products for the past 3 years and just started to buy her pieces again and am very disappointed to see no improvement were made to the earring posts. How difficult is it to have a better quality earring post like what she had before? It's unbelievable where they cut the corners.
For this pair of earring, other than the thin posts that probably will break off after a short while, the earring is pretty small as well. The Amethyst is good color and saturation though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Lovely earring
I purchased the blue topaz, and they are a lovely shade of blue. I received extra backs to wear with the studs alone, so I am very happy with them. They are a nice, substantial weight, also, so won't be bent easily. Thank you, Judith!
Rated 2 out of 5 by BluBirdGirl Stud is too small
Pros: Citrine is beautiful golden shade. Ripka detail is just okay. Cons: extra backs for the studs were not included. Studs are so small that this earring is not a good value for the cost. I am returning this earring. As a longtime Ripka fan I've noticed declining value over the last couple of years.

I purchased these earrings in blue topaz and they're beautiful! An interesting design in that the backs hold the bottom cabochon. Not too large or too small; just the right size for every day wear.
Rated 3 out of 5 by luvlyf Love the concept
I love the idea of the two earrings, with one suspended beneath the ear. Very cool! But I was disappointed in the color of the amethyst cabachons. They are too dark to really show up as purple. I have held them under artificial light, as well as natural light (altho we don't have alot of that these days here in Texas!) They don't have the presence that they seemed to have when they were presented on TV. Unfortunately, for this price, I'm going to have to return them.
