Judith Ripka Sterling and Turquoise Doublet Hinged Cuff
REALLY LOVE IT!!!
I just love to see the beautiful color of the turquoise being enhanced by the sparkle from the faceted crystal on top. I am so happy that this bracelet is not as large scale as many of Judith's other doublet bracelets. It is not too big or small;it is just right! This gives me more comfort and versatility to wear it more often. I just take it out, put it on, and it brightens my day just to look at it. It was a big splurge for me, but I really love it! I truly enjoy your jewelry. Side Note- Judith, please continue to make smaller or medium scale rings with less texture right between our fingers for comfort, so many of us can wear your wonderful designs and not "just" admire them. :)
Can't stop admiring it
Waited so long on wait list that I'd given up, but when it finally arrived & I opened the box, i remembered why I fell for this bracelet during its brief presentation and instant sell out. It is SO beautiful and the color of the doublets is luminous and eye catching even from a distance. The diamonique is just a light touch of sparkle, just the right amount. I like the scale and wouldn't want this to be chunkier as it is lovely and feminine. (my normal size fits fine, didn't size up) It does seem to be priced like a big chunky bangle, which is annoying. However, it is probably the prettiest Ripka piece I've ever seen and I can't imagine sending it back on cost alone. Truly, it's SO pretty that I'm afraid to wear it for fear of every woman I meet grabbing my wrist and interrogating me! Love, love, LOVE it!
(I also tried the ring / earrings that came out with the bracelet, but they were a bit too ornate & fussy. In any case, the bracelet doesn't need anything matching to go with it as it is a shining star!)
The Turquoise Doublet Color is Stunning
I purchased this bracelet in late March along with the ring and earrings. This was on waitlist and although I loved wearing the ring and earrings, I knew I was missing something and it finally came. The color of this doublet stone just glows and it reminds me of the sparkling blue water of Guam.. The small diamonique stones just give a tiny touch of sparkle which just adds to the beauty. IMO a well designed piece. It is a smaller cuff which I knew when I purchased by the price. Would I like it in a bigger cuff? Sure cause I love stones but beleive me this shows up. The only negative for me is that I ordered an average which is my normal size in all of Judiths bracelets and although it is not tight I really have to angle my wrist "just so" to get it on. I think I will put my wrist on a diet. So I would recommend that you size up if your other JR bracelets are snug in a size average.
Can't write anymore....I just love it
Wonderful, colorful cuff!!
Love the color of the Turquoise Doublets! The size and proportion of this cuff makes it 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, earrings and ring, too!
The berge work done on this cuff is amazing. The stones are breathtaking.....the turq doublet is just beautiful. As I've stated before, there is an inner glow....like cloulds in a blue sky. The entire suite just goes beautifully with the Flora turq doublet ring! The cuff is lighter than others, but, that doesn't take away its beauty.
love the turquoise doublet ... BUT
The cuff is not worth the price w/ the tappering silver. I would like to see another Judith Ripka cuff offered w/ turquoise doublet stones but " the normal size and amount of silver. ' I love the co-ordinating 3 stone ring and have a nice doublet enhancer already. Please offer the turquoise doublet earrings in a hanging style.
Matrix Free and Perfect!
Thank you, Judith! I purchased two of these when they were the OTO and both are spotless, Persian blue turquoise...and they are an identical match to the three stone ring. Please consider doing this "matrix free" Persian doublet in a wider cuff so we can start stacking, and, maybe a larger pendant???
DID ANYONE GET TO BUY THIS?
I'm not sure anyone actually got a chance to purchase this item. Seconds before it aired I began to try to order it. It said it was sold out the entire time. Just wondering, did anyone actually receive this item? Gave it five stars because it looked beautiful on Host but "no" recommendation because I'm not convinced it was ever available. I'm on wait list but was curious to know if anyone received it and if they like it. If it ever comes to me will be more than happy to change my recommendation.
Beautiful Stones, but Lightweight Silver
The turquoise doublet stones are just gorgeous and free of any matrix. I like the design of the top of this bracelet, but I wish the silver cuff were a little wider and that it didn't taper in the back. I have the other Ripka turquoise doublet bracelet with smaller stones, but that cuff is more substantial and the overall bracelet heavier in weight than this one (for more than $100 less). They do look nice together and I plan on keeping this one, but I'm giving it four stars because I believe it is overpriced for the amount and weight of the silver in comparison to Judith's other cuffs.
