Judith Ripka Sterling Heart Monaco Gemstone Ring
Ordered the ruby and it's gorgeous.......absolutely love the color.
A Ruby Jubilee
Happy (early) Birthday to me! Yes, I am a July baby which is why I was drawn to the alluring attraction of the cranberry/raspberry-colored ruby doublet. I also adore the hugs and kisses from the twinkling Diamonique shining blissfully on the shank of the ring, along with the traditional Judith Ripka rope design outlining the scrumptious heart. There is definitely a lot for me to LOVE about this ring and is a perfect fit for any occasion.
Bad quality stones
"I ordered both ruby and amethyst to decide which to keep. I've wanted one of these for quite a while. The setting is so spectacular! When they came in again at a "one time only" price I jumped on it. I should have listened to the other reviews that talked about the quality of the stones. One is not really better than the other. The Ruby slice that I received has striped striations in it which looks really bad under the quartz doublet. The amethyst is so pale that you can see the silver in the band reflected under the stone because it’s almost clear. Sadly I'm sending them BOTH back...I gave it three stars for the setting."
Purchased this ring in the amethyst choice and upon opening the box, I was very surprised. The stone is a medium purple--not a vivid, rich deep purple, which is my particular favorite. The setting is very lovely and the scale of the ring is very nice on the finger. It also feels good when wearing. I, personally, would have loved a deeper shade of purple, but it is a very pretty ring just the same. I got it at a one-time-only price, lower than is listed today, but it is still an expensive purchase for a silver ring. It is a very lovely choice to wear with other Ripka pieces that have amethyst stones.
I bought this beautiful ring on Judith's last visit. Absolutely to die for.
RUBY COLOR IS BEAUTIFUL
I LOVE THIS RING IN RUBY! The color of the ruby is a deep raspberry color. The ring sits up high on the hand, and is an eye catcher. I also love all of the tiny diamonique stones on the band. It is gorgeous and well crafted. This ring is so fun. I am so excited to add it to my JR collection. Thanks Judith for sharing such beauties with us. We LOVE you.
Beautiful Purple Heart
Just received my ring today in the amethyst choice!!! I am a purple girl and the shade of amethyst is breathtaking. The fit is perfect as always and the size of the stone isn't overpowering. I love all of Judith's rings but this ring is on my top 5 list.
I purchased both the amy & ruby and they are more beautiful in person than the pictures indicate. I am not a real fan of DMQ, but the way Miss Judie uses DMQ to support the main attraction is nothing short of genius, which, of course, Miss Judie is. The supporting design enhances the main stone beautifully. My only problem is which one do I wear? Three loves!
I particularly like and am a fan of Judith Ripka products; however,I was extremely disappointed with this purchase! The color was horrible and it looked like a bubble gum ring.
I ordered this in amethyst first, received it and I wasn't impressed. The setting was stunning, the quality of the amethyst was not impressive. The stone had no depth of color, no flashes of red or blue. BORING! I sent that back and ordered the ruby, the stone on that was just as bad if not worse. At best it looked like a washed out rhodolite garnet. Sending it back as well. I am so disappointed, why on earth would you put poor grade stones in such a beautiful setting? I wondered if all the stones were consistantly poor or if I just got the bad ones, probably not. I am tired of paying shipping charges and running to the post office to return, not ordering another.
The word that comes to mind first. I ordered the ruby doublet and am so thrilled. This beauty is not ordinary, so if you don't want a ring that is exceptional this one is not for you. The ruby doublet is rich in color and I love the setting! I am so excited to add this beauty to my Judith Ripka collection.
I have been on waitlist and forgot about this ring until it arrived yesterday. When I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised.The ring is gorgeous. Before this review I read a few of the other reviews and wondered if they got the same ring as I did as my ruby is gorgeous. I love the raspberry color and wouldn't have liked it if it were dark red. The mounting is so gorgeous with the dimonique stones coming up to a crescendo to surround the ruby - awesome. Judith you are an amazing artist.
