Hi everyone! I hope that your April has been lovely so far and that you’ve made time to get outside, see the flowers that are starting to bloom, and enjoy the warmer temperatures.
After my recent trip to the Basel International Watch and Jewelry Show, Beth and I headed directly to London and Ron joined us there. We were walking in Soho near the courtyard of the Ham Yard Hotel when we came across this striking bronze sculpture. I just loved it and had to touch it and feel it. It made me smile. Created by Tony Cragg, one of Britain’s most n... Continue Reading

Hi friends! I hope your April is off to a great start! It’s been a long winter for everyone and I think we’re all ready for spring.
I just got back from Baselworld, which is the biggest international fine jewelry and watch show in the industry. This year, there were over 150,000 visitors from all over the world. The watch booths were especially incredible – they were two to three stories high and larger than many stores in Manhattan!
I was thrilled to be there with many members of my team. Beth and I were in our couture booth where we met w... Continue Reading

Happy almost spring! I hope that you are de-thawing and making fun plans for the warmer days ahead.
I have some exciting news —I’m celebrating my 18th Anniversary at QVC! I cannot believe that it’s been eighteen years since I’ve been coming to the Q. I still remember all the times that Ron and I would drive up the New Jersey turnpike and head to West Chester. It’s flown by, but you know what they say — time flies when you’re having fun!
One of the best new additions to QVC has been our new on-air guest, Stacey. She has a great way about... Continue Reading

Hi friends. A lot can happen in ten years: the last ten years have been filled with adventures, additions, and some wonderful surprises. From new collections to new grandchildren, there are so many fantastic developments that have taken shape.
Although change is a constant, there are some things that have stayed the same. My family is still my top priority, I am still lucky enough to have my dream job, and there are still never enough hours in the day.
Trends and styles change so quickly and timelessness is not an easy quality to achieve. Regardless of trends, I have always loved colorful, n... Continue Reading

Hello everyone. I am very happy to introduce you to my new feature, Unmistakably Judith. During the first week of every month, I’ll be bringing back some of our most classic pieces from the archive. In the early days, we used the phrase “Unmistakably Judith” in my advertising taglines, so I thought it would be the perfect name for a series dedicated to items that we’re bringing back from the past.
We love these classics so much that we wanted to give you another chance to add them to your collection. And, if you haven&rsquo... Continue Reading

Hi everyone. We made it through January. After the holidays, winter can feel never-ending but so far, 2015 is off to a great start. Even though the holiday season is over, there are lots fun things to brighten up this time of year.
Will you be watching the big game tomorrow? Whether you watch for the football, the commercials or the half-time show, the Super Bowl is always an enjoyable event. This year, I'll be at QVC hosting some exciting shows. Every year, Ron watches from the green room and flips between the Super Bowl and watching me on QVC. Ron is the best. He al... Continue Reading

I hope your New Year is off to a happy start with the promise of many good things to come. I’m particularly delighted to begin 2015 with exciting plans for the Judith Ripka brand. For me, the new year has brought a fresh perspective and more inspiration than ever. Every day I think about my designs. This is my passion and my life’s work – something I’ll never stop doing.
Sometimes, I wake up dreaming about an idea and scribble down notes! Then, in the morning, Ron helps me decipher my notes so I can sketch and b... Continue Reading

The holiday season brings me so much inspiration for my sketches. Besides attending holiday parties, I’ve been sketching like crazy the past few weeks on everything from napkins to wrapping paper.
We have... Continue Reading

Hello all. I hope that everyone is bundled up and enjoying the holidays with their families. So far, I am having a great holiday season with my family and friends.
I recently attended a holiday party on a boat called The Atlantica. We cruised around the Hudson River and enjoyed stunning views of the New York City skyline. No matter how many times I see it, I am still thrilled by that view.
I really love to bake during this time of year. One of my favorite recipes to make is biscotti. Whether you’re enjoying biscotti with tea, coffee or a holiday punch, it’s the perfect season... Continue Reading

Hi everyone. Beth and the team just returned from visiting our factories in Bangkok, Thailand.
Whenever you travel, it’s always good to immerse yourself in the culture. Beth and the team experienced Thai culture by visiting this restaurant and saw these Thai dancers in their elegant, traditional outfits while having dinner.
During Beth’s trip, she worked with our master carvers and was able to get a hands-on look at how our TSV tennis bracelet is made.
In the photos, you’ll see how our jewelry is first carved in wax, a process done completely by hand.... Continue Reading
