Judith Ripka Sterling 20" Status Link Toggle Necklace
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
I find myself reaching for this necklace often. It is an "easy" necklace. I keep it in my jewelry tray because I'm often in a hurry by the time I need to select my days jewelry and I need this necklace handy. I can always count on this necklace to deliver the look I need. I have been wanting to write a review since I got it when it was first introduced. I can't believe there could be any negative reviews on this necklace or the matching bracelet. The texture is gorgeous and love the status link. Did I mention it's gorgeous.
Necklace is Not For Me
I have to say that this is a pretty necklace. And, of course, when Lisa Robertson put it on, it looked beautiful on her. The texturing on the silver is really pretty as well. Overall, however, this is one dull looking necklace. It doesn't complement my skin tone at all. When I put gold on, my skin warms right up to it and looks beautiful. When I put a on a piece of silver finished with a high polish, same thing. My skin picks up the polished surface and the jewelry looks beautiful on me. If it matters, I"m fair with ash blonde hair. Lisa and Judith spoke about how the finish is more like platinum. The only platinum I've ever seen that's got this kind of dull finishing is Judith's. Maybe I should shop more, don't know. What I can say is how disappointed I am that I have to return this. I wanted it so badly. Just doesn't work for me. I hope someone else gets it and it looks beautiful on them.
