Judith Ripka Diamond Jewelry Review: Rings, Bracelet, Necklace

Updated on January 10, 2015

Judith Ripka Diamonds

Judith Ripka uses diamonds both to enhance the luxury and richness of her jewelry, and as indispensable aesthetic components that draw light and enhance the qualities of adjacent gold and gemstones. As such, diamonds play a quintessential role in the brand's creations – surprisingly, without ever taking the place of the protagonist (with some exceptions in separate cushion pieces).

Diamonds appear on all types of the company's jewelry – earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces, pendants, and clip-ons – occupying the prongs, cushions, bezels, closures and shanks, acting as accents, pave pieces, and more. They become ubiquitous in Judith Ripka designs, but never imposing, always leaving space for the colored quartz and crystal stones, as well as other gemstones, to exert their own influence.

They are at once soft and hard, liquid and solid, fluid and stable; clearly the designer knew how to exploit the natural beauty of this precious stone to her advantage. Let's take a closer look at separate (our favorite) collections:

Designs

  • Monaco rings stand out for their use of colored diamonds. The brand offers black and champagne quartz models that feature less familiar, dark variations of the precious stone on the shank to match the centerpiece; prongs and edges carry several classic transparent gems to add a layer of light into this generous design.

  • Necklaces usually carry diamonds as accents, adding an accidental, spontaneous sparkle to the piece; heavier, cushion-pendant based necklaces concentrate a seemingly random spreading on the hanging element (often a heart). Here the stones truly display their capacity of auxiliary rather than primary jewelry function.

  • In the bracelets Judith Ripka found yet another role for the diamond: a set of three or four items act as a sort of “dam,” keeping the golden engraving from spilling over between segments – a symbolical border on the one hand, an independent decorative composition on the other. The stones are organized either horizontally or vertically, combining into powerful, visually magnetizing lines.
