Judith Ripka’s Wearable Glamour

We know so many beautifully dressed people who regularly wear Judith Ripka jewelry (from international business women like Pamela Joyner to socialites such as Jill Zarin and Elizabeth Thieriot, and celebrities like Cindy Crawford, Jessica Simpson, Naomi Watts and Tori Spelling), and when we recently went to the Judith Ripka store in San Francisco’s Union Square (at 110 Geary Street) we quickly saw why they are fans.

We find that the jewelry is fun, glamorous and fashion forward, while maintaining a look that is distinctly feminine and wearable. As a wife, mother, grandmother and business woman, Judith designs versatile jewelry that is classically informed, yet it seems modernized to complement today’s wardrobe.

Some of our favorite pieces are showcased below. There is more to be seen at the Union Square boutique.
