Judith Ripka Sterling Opaque Tanzanite 18" Adjustable Necklace
This is a lovely necklace, and one of the pieces that I have received many compliments on. Even though it is not a large pendant, it stands out because it has been designed
so beautifully. And where are you going to get opaque tanzanite? I think this is a
rare opportunity to get this stone in a piece that is so stunningly designed. The only
annoying part is that you do have to adjust it because it does not stay put. I don't regret
my purchase. I hope this review helps.

The necklace I received is nearly identical to the one in the video. It's a nice deep shade of purple with beautifully set stones surrounding the tanzanite stone. The necklace chain is a sturdy weight and similar to her boutique chains. In comparing this to Judith's popular couture ''evil eye" necklace, there were several similarities. Not only is the dime-size couture evil eye the same size as this pendant, this chain is quite similar in quality and diameter- except that this necklace has a few surprising details added. There is a heart with sparkling stones on the clasp and an extra little bezel set diamonique stone charm at the very end of the necklace. The detail is incredible with the tiny charm having carving so intricate, I don't now how it would have been easily accomplished. The necklace is lovely, and it's a shame that it is not removable from the pendant to make it more versatile. I would have loved to have been able to wear it with one of Judith's small heart enhancers just for variety.
After wearing the necklace a few times, I have noticed that the pendant does need to be periodically adjusted on the chain as it tends to drift a bit. Except for that occasional annoyance, I really love this necklace for the fact that it is a noticeable Ripka piece with high quality workmanship and looks great day to night.
