J37100 - Barbara Bixby 3.50 ct Cognac Quartz Bee Ring Sterling/18K
I ordered this ring online. Some of the detail is hard to see in the photo, but my nickname is Bee, so I decided to go for it. Wow, when it arrived I was so pleased! It is truly a one-of-a-kind piece. It looks like something I would have paid a lot to have it specailly made just for me. I will wear it with pride. It is beautiful!!
Beautiful, Unique but runs big
Just received my Bee ring and it is just Beautiful! It really does look great on the finger and I agree with others that this ring looks best on the middle or index finger. I did order for my ring or middle finger and am always a size 7 but this was much too large to wear on the ring finger and was still somewhat large on the middle. I am ordering down a size to a 6. The Cognac Quartz stone is exceptionally pretty too.
THIS RING IS EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE PICTURES CAN SHOW. RECOMMEND TO ANYONE CONSIDERING IT, IT IS TRUELY UNIQUE. I ESPECIALLY LOVE THE BEE SITTING ON A CROWN, A FEATURE YOU CAN ONLY SEE FROM THE SIDE. LOVE BARBRA BIXBY'S WORK, THANK YOU QVC FOR SELLING HER JEWELRY.
This Bee is Fit For A Queen!
This bee ring is hands down one of my favorite rings I own! The presentation does not do it justice. You cannot see the dimension until you get it on your hand. Again, this is a sculptural piece. It looks very nice on the index finger, as if this bee just landed there to rest. The cognac color is rich and true to the name. I am very amazed at the beauty of this of this original little piece of art. I highly recommend you grab this one. You'll wear this bee more often than you think. I sure do!
Exquistie, breathtaking, beautiful ring. When it came in my keepsake box, the television did it injustice. This is definitely my favorite piece of jewerly ever, and my first B.Bixby piece. It feels great on, not big and bulky, it has an antique look but rich detail and master piece feel/appearance. The detail of it makes you want to stare at it for hours, almost like it was custom made just for you. I will definitely buy more pieces of her jewerly. The artistic craftsmanship is amazing. Very happy with my choice! Will keep this piece forever!!!!!!!!!!
I have several BB pieces, but this bee ring is my favorite. The silver is designed beautifully and the stone is faceted so that it catches the light. The color of the stone is rich. The size of the bee ring is done to flatter the hand...just right. I like unique items and this truly is. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Please bring back the pendant. I'd like to order one ASAP. Thanks BB for your beautiful designs and keep them coming. I'm a big fan.
Unique, never seen before
Beautifully detailed, oxidation brings out the true details, 3 dimensional, ring runs a little big. I'm a size 7 ring finger and size 8 1/2 for both my middle and index fingers. I ordered a size 8 to wear it on either my index or middle fingers and it fits perfectly. I would recommend this ring for those fingers instead of the traditional ring finger because the ring seems more balanced when worn on those positions of the hand. If you have very long fingers, you can purchase this ring for a ring finger, as well. Absolutely love it. One of a kind, you will not be disappointed. The price may be considered a little high, but if you have priced silver and gold lately, especially at the department stores, this is still very economical with the work that is involved in manufacturing this piece. Ordered this ahead of time for myself for a special occasion, it is usally always sold out. Can't wait to wear it!
Awesome ring. Very whimsical and unique. This is one of my favorites pieces that I reach for and when I do it always makes me smile. I love nature inspired jewelry and I look forward to collecting any new nature pieces that come along. Love it!!!!
What a Disappointment!
I have wanted this ring for a long time and I finally splurged on it for my birthday. I am very disappointed. The metal on the ring was very dark and dingy looking. The quartz portion was fine, but there was none of the lovely elegance that first attracted me to it. On TV the ring looked so bright and sparkly. Also, I wear a size 6, and this size 6 was too big. It spun around on my finger. I just didn't love it, so I can't justify keeping it.
I am just in love with this ring!! As others have mentioned, the detailing is exquisite, the stone is rich and sparkly, and the piece is whimsical and fun without being juvenile. It does tend to be top-heavy, but as someone who usually wears a 6 1/2, I found after trying both the 6 and the 7 that the smaller size was adequate to fit me and also kept the bee from flopping from side to side on my finger. Not only am I keeping this ring, I hope that my friends begin to think of it as my "signature piece." Great job on this one, Barbara and QVC!
Not as What I Expected
I was so excited when I placed my order and couldn't wait for it to be arrived. But when I finally received the ring, I was so.... disappointed. The ring looks old and very un-fresh. The stone wasn't as shine as it should be and the metal part of the ring was very dark. The ring was not in the brand-new condition. It was also not being packeted well. It did not come with the plactic bag or something else to protect the ring. I wear size 6 ring, but this size 6 ring seems a little too big for me. The ring kept moving and was not well balanced.... It's back to QVC.
I have wanted this ring forever. When I finally splurged and got it I found the balance of the ring to be so uncomfortable that I sent it back. If it had been designed slightly different to center the weight more evenly I would have been ecstatic with it.
