Judith Ripka Sterling7.50ctw Crystal Quartz Gemstone Regal Earrings
Rare Ripka Return
I can't remember the last time I returned a Ripka item because I've been satisfied with practically all of the Ripka jewelry I've ordered from QVC. These earrings are beautifully designed and, in my opinion, have a dressier look to them. The quality and workmanship were fine except for the posts. One earring arrived with a slightly bent post. Unlike my many other Ripka earrings, the posts on these earrings were so thin that I didn't ask for an exchange and returned them instead. I bought these earrings to go with my Ripka green doublet ring, so I hope Judith will design more emerald or green doublet earrings in the future.
I just wore these for the first time today. I got them in the emeralds and they are beautiful to look at. The crystal quartz has a lot of sparkle and movement, and the emeralds are noticeable set against that crystal. The stones are nice, not too milky as real stones can be. They are not as sparkly as lab grown emeralds, but I am still pleased.
I found the earring a little hard to get into my ear, as I have thick earlobes. The backs are very secure, so I'll gladly put up with a little initial discomfort when I fasten that post in place It felt as if there was NO chance at all of losing them, which I appreciate when I've spent money like this.
I wore these with the Affinity emerald bracelet J157204 and Affinity emerald ring J265108 and they looked great together.
I am seriously considering getting the ruby earrings.
Bought these and LOVE them! Rubies are a beautful red and the Crystal Quartz sparkles like crazy. Everyone wants natural stones and these definetly fit the bill! I highly recommend these!
no WOW !!
I already sent them back! I got the emerald and they did look nice,the emeralds are an ok color for the size, but the earring is not well made. The posts kept bending as I was trying to put them on! The earring doesn't show up once you put it on,it looks better on TV or photo! If they were $100 less, maybe I would consider getting them. I have A LOT of Judith Ripka jewelry, both from her stores and from QVC,but these earrings just didn't have the value for me! I wanted them to wear with my white gold emerald and diamond necklace but they look very cheap next to it.!
not quite right
this was my first and last Ripka purchase. They felt cheap and no wow factor on the ear. Not worth the high price tag. They went back quickly.
ELEGANT AND BEAUTIFUL
THESE ARE SUBSTANTIAL EARRINGS WITHOUT BEING TOO HEAVY OR WEIGHTY ON THE PIERCED EARS. PURCHASED THE AFRICAN RUBY TO WEAR ON VALENTINES DAY FROM MY SWEETIE! VERY HAPPY I GOT IN ON THE OTO PRICE
