Judith Ripka Essentials may be better known for 18k gold and silver jewelry pieces, but, recently, the signature jewelry maker released a first: a luxury chronograph watch. The Judith Ripka Stainless Steel Chronograph Textured Watch with Diamonique is a mouthful, but is equally robust in features and style. It has classic elegance and sophistication highlighted by its silver or rose gold tone and stainless steel material. The watch also features mother-of-pearl dial and a round bezel with studded diamonds. On the other hand, the sapphire mineral crystal cover adds to the luxury feel. The watch also uses ionic plating for a spectacular brilliant finish. We're not sure now if  this piece is a watch or more of a Judith Ripka jewelry. You can wear this exquisite collection for daily casual wear or at special events.

Tips on wearing jewelry at the boardroom

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:30:03 PM in Judith Ripka (22)

Wearing luxury jewelry today like a Judith Ripka necklace is more than ever accepted today inside the male-dominated boardroom, as more career women climb the corporate ladder. Still, it pays to delineate the line between elegance and appropriate business attire. As a general thumb, the jewelry should not interfere with your work or your colleagues’. Long necklaces or those with full of pendants may grab unnecessary attention. Judith Ripka’s simple linear necklaces are a good example of appropriate luxury. It’s subtle yet impressive in single pendants. Likewise, do not over accessorize. A single layer necklace is often enough to project a nice look. If you want to layer two or three, make sure the chain is thin to avoid a “heavy” appearance. Remember, it’s not about showing off your luxury, rather it’s about your fashion taste that you want to project.

Emblem of love

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:27:26 PM in Judith Ripka (22)

Giving your loved one luxury jewellery is not just about the material value. For Judith Ripka it goes beyond the luxury; it’s personal. An elegant necklace doesn’t only impress, it’s a symbol of the man’s love and passion that a woman wears around her neck, that part of the body where she’s vulnerable as it is a source of pleasure. Gold and platinum earrings are not meant to flaunt luxury. The woman wears them close to her ears, as she wants you and your love close to her. The diamond set ring doesn’t mean you’re buying her out with luxury. Definitely not. It’s your declaration to the world that she’s worth the best in life, and you’re willing to give the best for her. Where others see luxury jewellery as a symbol of wealth, Judith Ripka sees it as your emblem of love.

The effect, in fact, is the opposite: despite too many elements competing for your attention, somehow, this Judith Ripka Essentials bracelet is simple and elegant.

Topaz embracing silver

Topaz, the November birthstone is a virtual showcase of colors. This symbol of friendship gets its different hues from impurities that occur naturally.

Blue topaz can be derived from colorless, gray or pale yellow stones by heat treatment and irradiation. This gem can be found almost anywhere in the world, in Europe, Asia, Australia and in the United States. Although not as precious as its diamond cousin, topaz is used extensively in jewelry making. Noted jewelry designer Judith Ripka Essentials has come up with a new creation using this gem in its 6 Stone Blue Topaz Necklace. Measuring 17 inches, this piece is made of pure sterling silver, accented by round blue topaz stones. It’s truly an ideal gift for any woman.
