Here’s the problem: The gorgeous Judith Ripka designer ladies silver rings, like the Eclipse ring with a large chunk of turquoise, or the Cushion Stone ring with a large cushion cut canary color crystal, or the Stone Hear with a heart shaped blue quartz, cost from $375 to $500. The settings are regular sterling silver, the gems are good quality faux, and the deigns are unique, but the prices are as high as buying a smaller genuine gem or even getting 9ct fake diamond rings that cost only a fraction of what the designer rings costs. Since cocktail rings are fun fashion or costume jewelry, and needn’t be genuine gems, it seems only reasonable they shouldn’t cost the same as fine gemstone and gold items. So, although I adore the Judith Ripka creations, not everyone can afford them, so here are some alternatives in price ranges that make sense when it comes to cocktail party accessories.
Affordable Designer Inspired Ladies Silver Rings From Eve’s Addiction
Eve’s Addiction has some very funky designs that have large stones. They look very similar to the expensive designer cocktail rings like the ones by Ripka. For example you can get a blue topaz creation, that’s inspired by the designer creations, but the piece only costs about $30. Between $35 and $100 you can get almost any of the designer inspired cubic zirconia or colored crystal faux gemstone rings that will be fabulous accessories for any cocktail party.
The 9ct Gold Alternative
Your other option is to go for 9ct gold with cubic zirconia man made gems rather than the silver cocktail rings. These types of product are found mainly in the UK and can be purchased from retailers such as Great Value Gold. The best thing about this shop is that you get real gold with a stunning gem, even if it is an imitation. You only have to spend about £60 to get something you will be proud to wear, as no one will suspect you are wearing a fake gemstone.
