Judith Ripka Sterling Facete 1.60ct Gemstone Graduated Band Ring
Exceptional Stellar Superb Outstanding Exquisite
Oh my, this ring is FABULOUS! The setting is hefty. Not "hefty as compared to the current ring selection in this line," it is HEFTY. It has a low profile, is beautifully detailed and has just the right touch of Diamonique. I purchased the London blue and it is a clear medium teal blue. Please restock in the citrine, London blue, and in other colors. I would love to own multiples of this ring.
A Few Issues
I don't quite love this as much others do, and have to decide about returning it. I love the weight and size of the ring and stone. But, since it is a bezel setting, no light can get under the stone and the stone is very, very dark. VERY dark. I got the London Blue.
The checkerboard cut allows a bright external light to elicit an occasional sparkle but in general the stone appears an almost lifeless black. I would be more accepting if the cost was about 1/3 the amount charged
BEST RING PURCHASE EVER!
This is my first Judith Ripka purchase and I couldn't be more pleased. I have stayed away from this line because her jewelry is so expensive. But I've been eyeing this ring in citrine for some time and finally gave in. It fits my ring finger perfectly and feels very comfortable. The overall look is vintage and the citrine is so beautiful. It does not overpower my small hand as I thought it might. It looks bold but not too bold. I love this ring! This ring, without a dought, is the best looking ring I've ever seen! It would look good on anyone and is well worth the money. I highly recommend!
Made the right choice
Just received my ring in London Blue, its just beautiful. I love wide band rings. The ring has a good weight to it,the color of the stone, is beautiful. I am a size 8 and the ring fits just right. I will be coming back for the citrine. Thanks Judith.
Deep blue beauty
I received this ring in my regular size 5 and it is a perfect fit and very comfortable.The color of London blue topaz is gorgeous and just a beautiful deep blue perfectly faceted. The texture of the silver band is lovely and small amount of diamonique on either side of the blue topaz is perfect. I have been wearing this ring since I received it last week. I highly recommend.
I ordered the ring in the London Blue, and it is just lovely. I also really like the citrine. The ring is bold, especially if you have smaller hands, but in a vintage, not too "costume-y" way. Definitely recommend!
Beautiful Graduation Gift
I looked at this ring several times and read all the great reviews. Then, I finally bought it. I bought it as a graduation gift to myself, believing that I should really treat myself. I am pleasantly surprised! The blue Topaz is just right and the bit of sparkle is subtle yet classy. Love this ring! It will forever remind me of my accomplishment everytime I look at my hand. What a great gift to give yourself!
Beautiful, quality ring!
The quality of this ring and the stone is excellent! I have it in both the citrine and the London blue, because it is so beautiful! Judith, please start making more of your new things in this great quality like you used too! Thank you for these gorgeous rings!
THIS RING IS GORGEOUS. IT IS A HEAVY WEIGHT AND SUBSTANTIAL. I BOUGHT
THE LONDON BLUE AND THE COLOR IS DEEP AND RICH. IT'S A WIDE BAND, BUT VERY COMFORTABLE. DON'T HESITATE TO PURCHASE.
Great Job Judith!
I purchased this ring in the london blue. It runs about 1/2 size smaller so it was a perfect fit for me. That being said, it's a stunner! It's the perfect size and the color of the stone is a deep london blue and the faceting is beautiful. I only wish that Judith would keep the "silver" color the same on her items. This really doesn't match my bracelet, so I'll wear on the left hand. Other than the difference in color, this ring is magnificent.
FINALLY A MAN'S RING FROM JUDITH RIPKA!!!!
I love Judith's work; watch all her shows, and have always wanted her to make a man's ring. Finally, this one works for me. It looks so good on my man's hand that I bought two of them; one in each gem stone color. You may laugh, but this is the perfect size for a man's ring; it's huge and just the right dimensions and kind of reminds me of a college ring. It looks fantastic on my ring finger. The large rope design on the edges give it a masculine flair and also the overall lack of over-ornamentation work. Judith, thank you! Finally you made a ring a guy can wear with pride. I wear it every day and am so happy with it. Bravo Judith! Ok, I'll admit, I do have a little bit of the "Liberace" spirit in me!
I purchased the Blue Topaz and simply LOVE the ring. Great style and comfort. The Bule Topaz is beautiful I came back again and purchased the Citrine, but I returned it as I thought the stone was a little pale compared to other citrine that I bought designed by Judith Ripka. I own her heart ring and the Citrine in that ring is more vivid. I loved the bezel set (few) scatered diamonique..well done. Some of her pieces are somewhat taken over by the diamonique. I agree with another reviewer request, I would like to see this ring done in Amethyst, Peridot and Garnet...even a swiss blue Topaz would be nice..
