REVIEWS Please post Judith Ripka April 2015 REVIEWS here... :)

Am starting this on March 31 because I feel a little superstitious about posting it on April Fool's day...OK, so please just bear with me! {#emotions_dlg.w00t}

The premise of this thread is very simple: REVIEW after REVIEW after REVIEW. And importantly, everything Judith Ripka counts, not only JRQ designs. It has become a bit more tricky since the sell out but still so much out there. Primarily we have her main NY boutique and the Long Island outlet (is that still operational--please let me know), as well as elite department stores and their websites, independent jewelers and their sites. Plus Bluefly, RuLaLa, Ideel, Last Call, Gilt. A quick search of Judith Ripka on Shopstyle dot com will give some ideas.

As for the Q we have new designs, older pieces, clearance, TSV, Insider, OTOs, Last Clicks, "As Is," Event pricing pieces, Limited Quantity. Incredibly popular is Over There (major auction site) and Ripkanista-to-Ripkanista trading.

If you are reviewing a JRQ design, please include the Q J-number. With more than 1,400 J-numbers in inventory, it is very difficult to recall each piece via description only. Photos are welcome!

Finally, if you already have a thread discussing a single JRQ treasure, please copy your single review post here. Now let's get reviewing! Thanks~Peach

PS~If you find something awesome which pairs well with JR, please review that, too. Sometimes it is fun to mix it up.

Hi LuckyPeach, I purchased j293935 live/laugh/love cuffs and could not be happier. They were a great deal at $99.00 and they stack or stand alone. Love Judith's jewelry, but it's even nicer when you think you got a great deal. Hope everyone else is as happy with their purchases.

Hi LuckyPeach, For my upcoming 60th birthday this month my husband said to go ahead and order J52270 Apatite & Diamonique cuff. Wow, what a beauty. It's a keeper and so is my husband. The stones are very clean and sparkly and the color to my eye is almost like swiss blue topaz mixed with peridot - the aqua color is more to the greenish side than the blue - maybe a little minty. Previously I had purchased J294771 Simulated Apatite Halo ring and the colors are extremely close. The cuff itself is a little lighter weight than some but it does have a lot of piercing - it has 6 diamond shape cut outs on the back and the back plate is also more pierced than most that just have the fleur de lis cut out. Size wise I think this is one of Judith's slightly larger smalls. I gave it a gentle squeeze to fit me better.

Happy Birthday kiwi. Enjoy wearing your new cuff.

I just received my blue Safire braclet, the small was way to small ,surprise me as I always take small sent it back and got the average. This TSV braclet is so breathtaking beautiful, I had to break my rule not to buy, Ms Ripka did it again!
