J264599 - Judith Ripka Sterling Oval Link Diamonique Toggle Necklace
I was so disappointed when I opened the box with the gray color of the necklace. The description online stated shiny sterling silver and what I ended up was a grayish matte finish. It would have been a very pretty necklace in design and weight, but I just couldn't get over the gray color. Have to return it.
After forever of having this necklace on my Wish List I finally splurged! I am nuts for waiting so long! After much debate on which length to order - I landed on the 20". Perfect for me! I can not stand tight necklaces & based on the reviews and video I could see I would need to take into consideration the thickness of this piece. Beautiful design & balanced weight. Feels & absolutlely looks like a designer piece, however it's not so heavy it's distracting or uncomfortable like many of Judith's pierced earrings. The Silver is bright and screams high end. Before ordering I went to my fav department store known for customer service & shoes to look at other high end Jewlery designers to see if I was truely getting a value. I found a very close comparison in design - however it was 1/2 the weight of this necklace & THREE times the price! Love love love my new signature piece!
I bought the 18 inch version. This is a gorgeous necklace, with or without an enhancer. The color of the necklace is bright, shiny, "white" silver, instead of gray silver like another Ripka necklace I own. Very luxe! I highly recommend this necklace!
Beautiful design but ....
It is a beautiful necklace, not too chunky, just right. I got the 20" and tried it with many of my Judith's enhancers, they all looked beautiful. But I couldn't get past the color differences of the silver, the necklace has a grayish color to it, like some of her other necklaces. I have tried dipping it in the jewelry cleaning solution, rubbing it with a polishing cloth and have even left it out of my anti-tarnish jewelry box to see if it would make a difference. Sadly, none of my efforts helped and I didn't want to keep another one of these grayish necklaces in my jewelry box because I hardly wear the grayish ones that I have, didn't need another one to occupy the space. I wish Judith's rhodium plating has a color consistency, so there is not much of a silver differences.
If you don't wear it with an enhancer or don't mind the silver color differences in your necklaces and enhancers, this is a pretty necklace. I bought it based on the raving reviews but returned it because I couldn't get past the color differences.
Versatile and Fabulous
This is one of the best necklaces I have purchased from Judith Ripka at QVC. The texture of the links is shimmery and the minimal diamonique presence is greatly appreciated. I have worn this necklace almost daily with and without enhancers since it arrived! I don't see how anyone could regret purchasing this JR piece. It is a stunner!! Perfect in every way!!
THIS NECKLACE IS BEAUTIFUL TODAY AS IT WILL BE IN 20 YEARS. THE INFINITY BERGE LINKS ADD MUCH STYLE AND DIMENSION TO THIS NECKLACE. THE SOFT DIAM. LOOK ON THE TOGGLE CLOSURE IS SPECIAL. THE NECLACE IS WEIGHTY. I'VE HAD THIS NECKLACE FOR ABOUT A MONTH AND HAVE WORN IT NEARLY EVERY DAY. IT MIXES WELL WITH ALL RIPKA PIEACES I OWN. ALTHOUGH AN ENHANCER LOOKS QUITE NICE WITH IT, I PREFER TO WEAR IT ON IT'S OWN . IT IS A CLASSIC BEAUTY.
This is a beautiful necklace. Very wearable, nice weight. Plan to wear most every day as a signature piece. Looks beautiful with or without enhancers. Wow! Thanks, Judith
