Big Juicy Luminescent GrapeThis is my second faceted purple doublet ring of this kind from Judith Ripka’s line, after years of buying other colors. They are all uniquely wonderful. This stone presentation is large like (and reminds me slightly of), my amazing Monaco rings by JRipka, though east to west, rather than north to south along the length of the finger.
Not quite an amethyst nor a purple diamond look, this faceted purple Diamonique atop mother of pearl creates a moon-glow sensibility which looks almost like a cats-eye stone as you move your hand. Completely still, the ring is also a stunner. I especially love huge colored Diamoniques, so that was a big draw for me with this one. And, I’ve been waiting for a huge purple or red CZ.
This might not be for the shy or faint of heart, but for me, long-since a big rings girl, I love to get them as big and bold as I can get away with. (I agree with Judy – ‘rings always seem smaller over time’.) This ring has a good deal of sterling silver, and a full under-gallery. There’s a heftiness, though it’s not too substantial for me. The weight speaks to value, sturdiness and quality. And beautifully done.
Though it’s large, width-wise, it’s still very comfortable. The crown-like setting has plenty of perfect sparkling pave stones. This ring design is a true work of art. Once again, Judith amazes me. With hundreds of her glorious rings in my collection over decades, that is certainly saying something.
Thanks again and again, Judith and the Q, for another top treasure. I continue to feel like a queen, with these ‘fit for royals’ rings. Please, pretty please, bring a red one like this (or a big red Monaco, or Montana), and especially huge colored Diamoniques, in red or rare colors, like Paraiba or Morganite.
