Judith Ripka Sterling and Turquoise Doublet Earring w/ Diamonique
I have a ring, not the one in this set, but the large oval turquoise doublet ring that came in white and raspberry. I was not able to get the earrings that went with them before they were discontinued which was a huge disappointment so when I saw these on easy pay I decided I had better get them. Although they go with my ring very well and they feel great on...it is the getting them on that is a nightmare! I usually read reviews on everything I purchase but it was on the weekend and my computer at home is not working so I simply ordered on the phone thinking "it is Judith it has to be fine". Wrong! I am keeping them because I want to have them to match my ring, but they will not be earrings I will be able to choose at the last minute. I will have to plan when I can wear them and allow plenty of time. It will not be often. I am in a hurry most mornings! Judith please correct this design and bring back the raspberry earrings that go with the rings I purchased. I have all three rings in that set. I only have these earrrigs to wear with the tourquoise one.
I bought these in December for a Jan. birthday present. The back only opens one time unlik other earrings of hers that open twice. I tried to get them on as I have smaller ear lobes but couldn't get them on. For the price the quality is not the same . Judith why??? Am sending back.
Can't Get Them In Your Ear
I bought these for my mom as she has always admired my JR Couture Eclipse Suite. There was no way I could help her get them in her ear. So I tried them on myself and I can wear any earring but I also realized that part of the problem was this was not the normal JR Omega Backs that she has always been known for. These are cheap tinny omega clips that do not open to the second position and that's why people can't get them in their ears. I stopped buying Ripka from QVC about 3 years ago when her designs went in a different direction and certainly never considered a piece any longer after she went clad. I can't even fathom the $ on her Q pieces. I don't understand why she agreed to allow her reputation to suffer by producing nothing more than a costume jewelry line with a very high defective rate. I once said in a previous review that "Judith....you need to take your name back." but I see that this is not the case as she has continued down the same path with the introduction of her newest designs also.
color not the same as the ring
I loved the ring but found the color of these earrings was dull compared to the ring. So returned.
Can't Get These On.
These are so beautiful and wanted them to go with the bracelet. Love the color BUT there is something wrong with these. My earlobe is just too big so I borrowed a smaller lobe and she had to struggle with them also. I thought they were going to break. I may try my jeweler but can't recommend something that doesn't fit. Guess I don't understand why they weren't made with a 2nd click like the other Ripka earrings of this style that I own
These earrings are perfect in every way...just the right size and shape, light on the ear and the beauty of them is their fabulous glowing turquoise color. After being on wait list for so long, I am thrilled with these little gems. I recommend them as earrings that well surely brighten your day and all those you meet. Sure to become my favorites.
After a jewelers adjustment on the omega, they not can be worn within seconds. They way they arrived, the omega was way too close and would not let the earlobe clear the omega and post far enough to get on. They were a terrible struggle. But with one twist to open the omega by the jeweler I can get them right on. They are beautful. They just glow. So many returned these earrings because of the adjustment clearence and thats a shame. I also got the cuff and ring and a great trio. All are keepers.
The size of the earrings are a winner also. There is nothing I can fault this trio on. I see the earrings are available again, you'd love them if you got them. Just sayin....
Just right! Beautiful Color!
I disagree with comments on the size of these earrings. I am an averaged sized person and I think they are a great size (unless you're looking for tangerines for your ear lobes!). Really nice quality. I love the color.
Not a good value
The earrings are too small, the amount of silver is spartan and the omega backs do not close well. Disappointing.
Beautiful earrings . . .
Love the color of the Turquoise Doublet! The size and proportion of these earrings make them very compatible with items I have from JR's boutique collection, which is always a plus for me! Love to mix JRQ with JR boutique purchases! Very happy I was able to get the matching enhancer, ring and cuff, too!
Beautiful but hard to get on
These earrings are beautiful but very hard to get on. I almost returned them but decided to give them one more try. If a person has very thick earlobes these will not work for them. The clasp on the back doesn't spring open very far which doesn't allow the earring to easily slide up to be attached through your piercing.The earrings need to be slowly wiggled on, while pulling the earlobe down to make it thinner. Once I was able to get mine on, they were so beautiful, I decided to keep them and deal with the quirkiness of them when I decide to wear them. The turquoise doublet glows and gives lovely color to my face area.
I am not even an earring person and I love these! They are the perfect size for me. I love the color and they aren't too heavy.
