Rated 5 out of 5 by Jersey Born A Lovely Little Black Necklace
I have had this necklace for several years, and I didn't wear it back when I purchased it, to be honest. I was drawn to my other Ripka necklaces more. Just this year, I found myself wondering what JR necklace to wear with a particular black dress. No silver or gold clad Ripka piece seemed to be quite right, and then… I remembered I had this necklace. I tried it on, not expecting it to work, but it fit perfectly in the neckline and it looked absolutely wonderful. Now, I wear this necklace often. It works well for dressier or more casual occasions-- black onyx with a bit of bling and silver hardware flourishes. It just works.
Rated 1 out of 5 by KikiC Barrel workmanship is very poor...
Such a disappointment!
The onyx necklace is nice, but the barrel is low quality. The finish work on the rope design and stone setting is sloppy and the stones look fake. The barrel appears to be two pieces because one side is not properly soldered to the other.
I chose this necklace because the barrel on TV looked elegant and realistic. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Please bring back the quality of materials and workmanship of the Ripka jewelry of the past.

This neclace is beautiful I bought so that I can wear it for work to dress up any outfit but especially a nice black dress. It's very elegant, I love it now we just need a bracelet to match.

I waited a long time for this necklace and finally it came back and was on Easy Pay, thank God. The black onyx beads are very lovely and I have always been a fan of oxyx since my parents gave me an onyx ring with diamonds upon graduation many years ago. I am so thrilled this stone is back and with JR. I am so happy you use this gorgeous stone and they are indeed lovely looking. The very shinny and well designed barrel is so elegant that I cannot take my eyes off it. It looks stunning on and makes all my beautiful black tops more elegant than they were before. Wish I had the earrings to match but I was lucky several years ago to purchse a pair of her black onyx earrings that have some sparkle work to them. The detail on the clasp is something no one would think of and I deeply appreciate the design and elegance of it. Thanks so much!
Rated 5 out of 5 by A2Zin1 PLEASE Bring The Ring Back!!!!!
Just purchased this stunning set (necklace & earrings) minus the ring, since QVC was out of ring sizes 7 and 8. Judith, please bring the ring back, so I can complete the set. This is one of the most elegant sets you have EVER carried.

Love the necklace..... the price is reasonable even moreseo when on easy pay. The only problem I have is, when worn, the barrel on the necklace becomes lopsided slightly so I end up fixing the necklace every now and then. That's why I gave it 4 stars.
Otherwise, I love it, goes well with business, casual and formal anything you wish to make it. Quite flexible plus fashionable. Love it, Love it!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CANJACK22 Stunning!!
I bought this necklace to wear for a friend's birthday party with the matching earrings. Everyone loved it and by the way, the "diamonds" were very believable. It goes from jeans to formal wear, which is what attracted me in the first place. Thank you Judith!!

This is a beautiful necklace! The onyx is solid and rich looking. The design is classy and classic. Yes, the barrel is substantial but it is still beautiful and I have gotten many compliments. This is a different look for me from Judith and I love it! Can be worn dressed up or down.
Rated 3 out of 5 by jojo54 LOVELY DESIGN, HOWEVER...
I have to agree with the other reviewer that it looks costume jewelry. I know that this is genuine onyx, however because the barrel is so large it does not look authentic. The price is outrageous for something that looks like department store jewelry. I do like the necklace but I cannot justify keeping this for the cost.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Barb4 Not as expected
The picture of this necklace gives the impression that the barrel is smaller and the diamonique subtle. The barrel is large and so are the diamonique stones. The overall impression is that of costume jewelry. Very disappointing. Returned the necklace. I will wait for the other Ripka black onyx necklace that is on waitlist and hope for the best.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DawnLS FAB-U-LICIOUS !!!!!
Just received this yesterday and immediately put it on. It is TRULY one of the most fabulous pieces Ms. Ripka has done to date and I have many, many Ripka pieces. It's hard to put into words how truly beautiful and elegant this necklace is. I have a small neck and got the 18 inch which is just perfect in every way. The barrel sparkles every which way. It truly looks like a piece that would cost hundreds of dollars.
When this comes back in stock, DO NOT HESITATE. . .RUN TO THE PHONE OR COMPUTER and ORDER POST HASTE!! You will NEVER be sorry you purchased this. It can be worn with anything.
Ms. Ripka. . .you've done it once again. . . beauty begets beauty. Thank you for this lovely piece.
