Rated 1 out of 5 by kimmijac Pretty Pink tone, Flimsy band
The pink stone was beautiful, I wished I could have kept this ring. I returned it since when I went grab something in my kitchen the very thin band bent. This bending did not take much force, very disappointing for a Ripka ring. On a recent show Judith spoke about possibly doing a Lola ring on the Q, if so I hope this defect is not repeated.

J329956 Judith Ripka Montana Ring in Pink DMQ
Grade: A+ Design; F Execution
Yea: the Montana for JRQ Ripkanistas
Boo: entire inside of the ring has been scooped out; sterling is a skimpy ONE millimeter in thickness and easily bent.
Value (1=low; 10=high): 2 (for full price of $118.)
After 20 years of collecting JR, I could probably switch off to a different ring every few days for a year. So, I have experienced JR quality. This ring does not have JR quality. The Montana pink DMQ stone is pretty and Judith's design skills are unmatched but the ring is a money grab. Either that or they sacrificed quality in order to maintain a certain level of profit. As stated above there's no substance to the band whatsoever.
And most rings will have several molds to accommodate the wide sizing range with a small sizing bar in the back. This ring appears to be made from one mold with the sizing bar increasing in length as the size of the ring goes up. My sizing bar on a size eight spanned the back of the ring! Due to the featherweight of the ring's band, it was unable to hold up the large stone at the front of the ring. I received a return with the back of the ring already bent and could hear rattling of the stone when I put it on, since it wasn't set correctly. The thin silver actually felt sharp against the skin!
I love JR and am behind at least a hundred reviews (stay tuned!) but the shoddy condition of the Montana ring's setting really took me aback. I was so looking forward to wearing it and am deeply disappointed...insulted really.

Pretty stone surrounded by awesome Ripka metal work.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Everything I hoped!
This ring is a knockout! I chose the pink and am back for the canary. I’d LOVE this gorgeous design in any red or shade of purple or blues, emerald green, peach, and even a black CZ. This is definitely not too big for me, and I’d also love this in a longer version (just as wide stone) with an even larger carat weight.
Judith Ripka’s stunning Montana ring is a lot of fabulous bang for the bucks. It’s a hand-grabber, a statement piece and for a big ring girl like me, will be worn with everything, all the time.
Thank you again and again, Judith and the Q for another home run, and making royalty and stars of us all.

I have been on the waitlist for this ring for quite a while. It was worth the wait. This ring has presence, which I love. I'm tempted to buy another, just to have. Several people have noted that the silver is not that weighty, however, for this price point, I think it is very well done, given the size of the stone as well. My son is a jewelry designer and approved this when it came in the mail, so if it meets his standards, it meets mine.

I had to wait three months for this ring but it was worth the wait. The faceting on the stone is unusual and make the ring sparkle. It is a substantial size and looks much more expensive than the actual cost. Another great piece from Judith Ripka.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Noahsnana9 Too large
Just received this today in yellow. Not impressed! The size 7 is too large and the setting seems cheap. No backing underneath stone and color is too yellow. Going back tomorrow. I wanted the pink but it's been on wait list too long. So that will be cancelled as well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ziira Best Ring Ever!!
Through the years I have purchased many rings from Judith Ripka and other cz's as well. This is the most beautiful, realistic, elegant ring I have!! Could have this in every color and clear. The clean style and color is fabulous!! Thanks QVC for the great price. PS. There were not enough stars for a proper review of this ring.
