Judith Ripka Estate Pia 1/2ct Gemstone & Diamonique Textured Ring
Are you kidding me????
Bought this ring in both ruby and sapphire. They are both lovely rings...they look vintage, they look like platinum, and the stones are to die for!!! Really don't understand the bad reviews...some of them are dated back to 2012, so maybe the QC on these rings improved over time. I hesitated to purchase these b/c of the bad reviews. Glad I got them. They are gorgeous!!!
Blue Sapphires are PERFECT
I really don't understand the ngeative reviews for this ring? I have this ring in blue sapphire and it is perfect for any occasion. I find myself wearing this ring with blue jeans and black-tie events due to the vintage-look. I really looks like platinum and blue sapphires and I receive multiple compliments every time I wear it. I'm a size 6 in JR rings and my fingers are long and narrow. This ring is absolutely beautiful on my finger and when I know I'm going to the little blue-box store I make sure I have on a JR piece. I want to order the ruby one for my mother.
I LOVE this ring!
This is a beautiful ring! I don't understand the negative reviews. I have ordered this ring in two sizes. Where else can you buy a GENUINE ruby ring for this price, at this quality? Judith Ripka never disappoints in quality! The ring is lovely, very comfortable, and the ruby stones are a bright red color, all well-matched, and draw a lot of attention! This is a BARGAIN! I absolutely love this ring. I would love for Judith to bring in more genuine ruby pieces in her collection.
not up to Ripka standards
I received this ring in the ruby. Very disappointing, the rubies were very poor quality. They were even scratched and on more then just 1 of the rubies. For that price I knew it was not going to be great, but not as poor as it turned out to be. So I had to send it back.
Center stones not placed evenly
Look at the picture and you will see the stones have gaps and are not evenly set.
NOT a Ripka Wow
This is a small ring with dull diamoniques and dark sapphires. It's NOT a Ripka Wow as we became accustomed to in days gone by. The color of the silver looks more like stainless steel than sterling.
The star of the ring are the beautiful rubies. Judith always uses the best gemstones in her pieces and that is why I am a huge fan. The ring is simple yet beautiful!
I've had the coordinating bracelet for a few months now and decided to order the ring in the sapphire. After reading some of the reviews, I was worried, but then it came. All I can say is BEAUTIFUL. The sapphires are a deep velvety blue -- and natural sapphires. And while baguettes were never my favorite cut, they are perfect for this stone. It totally brings out the color in an amazing way. The entire ring is executed beautifully. And for women who want something bold for everyday wear without feeling like it is over the top, get this ring. And add the Sapphire Fleur de Lis Pin/Enhancer to the mix and you are set to go!
This ring is not the glamour piece I would have expected from Judith Ripka. It just does not have the wow factor that some of her other pieces have.
This is a great compliment to the matching bracelet. I get more compliments on them both whenever I wear them.
Purchased this entire suite. Wearing the ring for the second time today. Looked down as I was typing and one of the bezel set diamonique stones is missing.
I've been a Ripka fan for years and own many, many of her pieces. I am very disappointed in the quality of the last few pieces I've purchased. Items are light weight and QC standards have obviously slipped. Judith - hope someone makes you aware of what your loyal supporters are writing about your designs.
My Row of Center Sapphires was Crooked
Otherwise the ring is lovely. These sapphires were crooked and the setting was damaged. No quality control on this one, sent it back.
