Judith Ripka Sterling Turquoise Doublet Cushion Cut Ring
The stone on this ring is really gorgeous, but the setting and size of the ring is much too large for small hands and too top heavy. (Would be great if it were half this size). Please, Judith, would you consider making this ring or at least using the turquoise doublet again, but in a smaller scale so that even petite hands can enjoy your rings.
Noticed this ring when it went on easy pay and ordered it right away. I really enjoy JR's turquoise pieces, especially the doublets. This ring did not disappoint! I appreciate the fact that it's a tad smaller than most of her rings, but still very bold on the hand. The stone is beautiful and the fit true to size. I do not find it uncomfortable on the hand at all and I have small hands (5). This one may be a well kept secret....but not for long.
Simple and Stunning
I've had the earrings that match this ring for a few months and knew I had to purchase the ring. The second it went on EZPay, it was mine!!! I'm just as pleased with the ring as I have been with those beautiful earrings that match. The doublet work on this ring is stunning and I'll have to respectfully disagree with other reviewers who think the band is uncomfortable. Mine fits perfectly (no need to size up or down) and the band is smooth as silk. The absence of Diamonique on this piece is a real plus. I'm in love with this set and will pull it out of my collection often. Just gorgeous.
Best Purchase EVER!!!!!
I LOVE,love this ring, i am so impressed, I would say if you love sleeping beauty Turquoise, this is the ring for you.☺
Washed out stone!
I thought this would be the turquoise ring for me. I don't typically do turquoise but the doublet appealed to me as well as the great design and scale. I was so disappointed when I opened the box and saw how washed out and not 'turquoise like' the stone was. I know it's the luck of the draw with natural stone but this ring is going back, I am afraid! I will not be trying a new one because I found the shank a bit rough to the touch.
Love this ring without the diamonique
Love this ring! It is great to have a Judith design with all of the texture in the silver and without the diamonique. It isn't my style or price range to have diamonds all over my jewelry so most of her designs seem unreal or over the top for me. This one is perfect. I do wish her rings were a little less "thick" in between the fingers. It would be much more comfortable.
I love turquoise. This ring is just beautiful. Judith Ripka did a wonderful job of making this turquoise ring even more brilliant looking by using the clear cystal quartz on top. It catches your eye. I have an issue with bigger nuckles and having rings fit but I don't have that problem with this ring. It slips on easily. There is just so much in detail with Judith's workmanship. It's just beautiful!!
Ominous is the only word that adequately describes the perfection of this ring! It really looks exactly like a Caribbean sea and the rock quartz crystal on the top gives you the feel of flowing water. I held it up to the TV when The Bachelorette was in Antigua and it matched the water on the screen perfectly! And the band is EXTREMELY comfortable!! The etching on the side gives it a rich look! Even though the ring does not have Diamonique, it still sparkles everywhere! It is also the perfect size! It is an amazing ring and I am sure you will LOVE it!!! 10 stars!!! Wear it with the green quartz doublet ring. They match perfectly!
Beautiful stone, Terrible band!!! :(
First let me say I LOVE soooo many Ripka pieces and I am really sad to actually be writing a not so good review but I really hope it might make a difference with future designs. To me the stone is GORGEOUS, nobody does turquoise like JR and especially in a doublet. Also I LOVE that there is no diamonique, in my opinion sometimes it makes the piece look fake and unrealistic unless you could afford a multi thousand dollar piece. The ONE complaint I have about this ring and a couple of others I have tried is the roundness and thickness of the band in between my fingers. It makes the ring extremely uncomfortable. PLEASE, PLEASE consider doing thinner, less rounded bands. This ring would be my favorite piece yet. I am tempted to keep it and see if I can take it to a jeweler to see if they can put the stone in a different setting because it would be perfect if it was not soooo thick and uncomfortable between my fingers. :(
This ring is perfection! The overall style is elegant and the doublet stone is stunning. I collect turquoise in unusual and modern settings. This ring and the matching earrings are a perfect addition to my jewerly box. It's classic Judith Ripka style .. thank you for designing.
This is a very beautiful turquoise ring that reminds me of the ocean. It's very bold on me but doesn't overpower my small hand. The ring is elegant and very comfortable to wear. Highly recommend!
I have sent almost everything back from Judith R that I have ordered lately. Ordered this ring and crossed my fingers. I love the fact that there is no diamonique just the beautiful stone. It is not to big nor to wide, can close my fingers. There is a glow to this stone that is so unique and beautiful.
