Judith Ripka Sterling Diamonique Textured RopeBead Charm
DITTO - STUNNING
I see other reviews using "Stunning" which is exactly as I would describe this charm.
I have 2 other similar bracelets filled with the "other" charms, one mixed with gold and silver and another depicting icons of New Orleans. I have quite an investment between the 2. I started a third and have mixed with mostly Ripka charms which take center stage when compared to the others.
This charm is pricey considering there is no gold but the cut and design pops on my bracelet and makes a huge statement.
I will be watching for its return and hopefully can add a 2nd matching charm.
I highly recommend the Baguette Charm below which looks beautiful when mixed with my gold enhanced charms. I ordered the Ripka caged Cobachon charm in white (below) after not finding a large pearl made for this type of bracelet. I ordered 5 to interspace on my New Orleans bracelet but mixed them instead between 2 bracelets that turned out more beautiful than my original design plan. You cannot go wrong with these charms. I have been wearing these (often) for several months and so far I haven't lost any stones which was a concern.
While I do love this charm I stopped short of the 5 stars due to the price.
I love the clear-stoned barrel charms which offset other charms all the more. This one stands on it's own and then some. Hard to believe such detail and workmanship can be put into such a small object. Kudos, Judith!
An absolute must for your bracelet!! Beautiful! Would consider another one but a little too pricey. So glad I was able to get this one though. Kudos Judith!!
