Judith Ripka Sterling Gemstone Double Green Emerald Textured Ring
Like Not Love
I like the color and the main stone is beautiful but the little stones catch in my clothes sometimes. They don't seem to be set evenly. I have the matching earrings too which I think look lovely and elegant. I'm buying more green clothes just to wear the set more frequently. All stones are still present and accounted for unlike some other reviewers.
Quality Issue - Received and Returned
Finally received this ring. It looked beautiful during the presentation. The design concept is excellent, especially like the east-west mounting and smooth cabochon stone. The textured silver is a bit dull, not as vibrant as "the cuff." But, could have lived with it. The color and clarity of the stones is excellent. So, we have excellent design and quality stones. Here is the sad part. The excellent design and quality stones are negated by inferior workmanship. The emerald stones are poorly set and uneven in height and spacing. The prongs holding the stones weren't even properly closed and tightened, which would account for the fact so many customers have received rings with missing stones or the stones just fall out. Hate to see nice emeralds like these wasted with inferior workmanship. Really, really, really wanted this ring to be a keeper, but returned it.
Size UP and BUY!!!!!
If you're obsessed with the color green like I am...BUY this ring...it's REALLY PRETTY in person! Just order a size larger than you normally do and you'll be happy :)
Wanted to Love this but
This ring runs small, and also was missing emerald stone. Sorry this one went back.
small for size
I am a size 5 1/4, and can usually wear a 5 (6 is too big on all QVC rings I've ordered). The TV description said true to size and not to order up, so I ordered the 5. It was too small, so now I'm out the shipping to return it to try the 6. It is pretty, but the description on TV of the central stone being "what an emerald should be" for the color was an overstatement. The color was pretty pale, though certainly cleaner than most emeralds in having no inclusions. I am now concerned about the comments about the loose or missing emeralds on my up-sized ring.
size runs small
I normally wear a size 8 , this ring is very tight. I'm also concerned that the sm emerald stones may fall out. The center stone is dull. The design is attractive but not worth the price. I own a lot of Ripka jewelry but will return this ring.
I was anxiously awaiting arrival of this green gem. I have the TSV signed bracelet
so I wanted a matching ring. When it arrived it looked beautiful but then it snagged
my blouse and on close inspection it looked like one of the emeralds was missing.
Not up to her quality.
Dull not set properly stone
Had to return because my stone was placed unevenly. You could see the lip of it on one side. Also the green was a touch dull in person. Also be advised it runs small. I always wear a 5 on this finger and it was snug.
WOW!!! This is a complete stunner~ This is such a gorgeous ring! Judith, please bring us more pieces without diamonique. Sometimes we just want the real deal, no simulates. Please make a coordinating bracelet! You are such an artist!!
Ring Misssing One Emerald
My ring arrived with one emerald missing. Since this item is new and couldn't have been a return, I'm afraid to request for a replacement as the same thing might happen again. The deadline of 30 days to return items for a refund worries me because if the emeralds start coming off after 30 days I will have no recourse but eat up the cost of a ring I can't wear. Beautiful ring but sadly I have to return it for a refund while I can. Three stars for being a beautiful ring.
Just What I Wanted
This ring has everything I was looking for. It is a perfect size, not too big, very comfortable with beautiful carved silver and glowing green calcedony doublet accented with a ring of green emeralds. All the gemstones are real and it is perfect ring for everyday.
Even prettier in person!
This ring is another Judith winner! It is really beautiful, green with a hint of blue. The style is very comfy and not too big or too small, just right! It does seem to run a tad small, so if you are in between, I would order up a size. Thank you Judith for another beauty!
