J266051 - Judith Ripka Sterling Open Hoop Gemstone Earrings
Simple But Just Right
I own a lot of Judith Ripka jewelry. I ordered the hematite hoops and thought they would be great with casual dress. I was wrong. I love these earrings. I wear them with most everything. The design and color of the hematite adds such a richness to your look. I love the fact that the hoops are oval, something a little different from the round hoops. They are just the right size and are very comfortable to wear. I've gotten so many compliments on them! Thanks Judith for taking something classic and putting a new refreshing spin to it!
I ordered this earring in turquoise (clip style). Absolutely loved them. I say "loved" because I lost one. I tried to re-order but was unsuccessful. Judith could you remake these earrings or, possibly find another pair for me? I would be an extremely happy and grateful customer if you can do this for me. Thanks so much for making stylish and beautiful clip earrings for us non-pierced ladies. My jewellry box is becoming filled with exclusively JR pieces!
Bought the hematite before the presentation because I love oval hoops and love the "Ripka" twisted rope look in earrings. They are stunning and thank goodness, no DMQ! I love DMQ in the Ripka designs, just really happy that the rope twist sparkles enough that DMQ would have been excessive. The other reviewers are correct in that the omega backs are a bit difficult to operate possibly because they are a more petite version but overall I find this quite a comfortable earring to wear and love that the solid gemstone covers the piercing on my earlobe. Now I await the turq version. Thanks Judith for all your wonderful and chic designs.
lovely but having trouble with omega backs
I love the look of these earrings. They are much lighter than I had imagined. The problem I'm having is with the omega backs. They are very difficult to open and close and I am afraid that they might break off because of this. As sad as this makes me I am going to have to return them.
Hoops are difficult for me to wear as they tend to plant themselves perpendicular to my head. Not pretty! Finally, hoops that work for me! These are hanging on me like hoops do on everyone else!!! Finally, I can put these beauties on and not feel uncomfortable anymore about how ridiculous I feel I look when wearing typical hoop earrings. I opted for the lovely robins egg blue turquoise and am wearing them right now with the chicklet necklace. Will also wear them with older pearl station, gumball and green turquoise/limon necklaces, well just about any other Ripka necklace in all probability. Versatile and fun, I am going to love (love, love) having these earrings! Only wart might be the skinny posts. I will definitely need to make sure I am extra careful when putting them on so they don't bend or break.
I got these in the turqouise, I love them. They match my heart carved ring and heart carved enhancer perfectly. The open hoop is the same as one of my chains. I put them on when the mail came today, don't even realize I have them on. These are perfect for me, I don't do diamonique.
I rec'd my earrings today and the post on one of the earrings was broken inside the bag. It is unfortunate because they really are lovely. Just be careful when you receive yours and check the posts. I gave an extra star because the concept is beautiful...
