    Judith Ripka: Judith Ripka was born and raised in New York. In 1977 Judith launched her first 18k gold collection. She introduces two new collections annually. Berge, rope twists and beading are elements that Judith uses to add dimension and interest to both her 18k Gold and Sterling Silver designs--often these features are combined with a matte finish. Judith often hides a heart in her designs.
