Judith Ripka by Judith Ripka is a wonderful book written by the author on the subject of fine jewelry. A number of her famous jewelry collections demonstrate the richness of color and design inherent in the necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings which adorn the text.
Ripka believes that beauty is expressed in the little things about us like nature itself. She explains that the jewelry business often demands a keen sense of artistic beauty coupled with a strong business and selling component to get the product known in the marketplace and sold.
For instance, the Eclipse collection has beautiful multi-colored necklaces in rich 18K gold.The Oasis earrings are done exquisitely in 14K yellow gold. The Ambrosia Town and Country Bracelets are in emerald, crown and other royal colors. The Estate of Mind Collection is in fine 18K gold with sapphires, blue quartz and other very exquisite stones.
The author’s accessories are also impressive. For instance, the suspenders are made finely and adorned with white diamonds. The presentation demonstrates her rare ability to work with both cloth and fine jewelry to compose stunning articles of clothing.
Judith Ripka is a wonderful book which should appeal to a wide audience of fashion enthusiasts across the economic spectrum. The presentation closes with beautiful pictures of her lovely family, as well as many acknowledgements. The text is easy to read and understand. This book could provide many hours of discussion about the jewelry presented and the uniquely cut stones which are a part of each collection displayed.
