J305745 - Barbara Bixby Carnelian Heart Enhancer, Sterling/18K Gold
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS PIECE! I can't wear it without getting dozens of compliments. I wear it reversed almost as much as I wear it the regular way. Barbara hit a homerun with this one!
I've had this piece for several years and I love it just as much today as the first day I received it. It is so very beautiful and different. It will definitely be a piece that I'll one day pass down to my daughter.
Thank you Barbara for making such beautiful jewelry!
I WAITED A LONG TIME TO ORDER THE PENDANT.RECEIVED THE EARRINGS FIRST AND THEY WERE SO GORGEOUS THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON THE PENDANT.IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND INCREDIBLY DETAILED AND ORNATE.IT HAS A QUIET ELEGANCE.THE TURQUOISE BRINGS OUT THE DARK,POLISHED CARNELIAN ,AND MAKES THE PENDANT STAND OUT.BARBARA ADDED ALOT OF EXTRA DRAMA WITH THE PEARL AND GOLD BEAD TOP OF THE ENHANCER.I HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO WEAR IT OUT YET,BUT I'M SURE IT WONT GO UNNOTICED.LOVE IT. THANK YOU BARBARA FOR ANOTHER UNIQUE CREATION.NOBODY DOES IT LIKE BARBARA!!!
Quick story... I was on a bus while shopping and this woman stopped me and said that this was the most beautiful necklace she'd ever seen! Again at the Dentist, and at the Grocery store! I wear this heart enhancer with Barbra's pearl necklace with the pearl toggle. It is a match made in Heaven! It is just a stunning piece!
Received this as a gift and I love it. Have not had any problem with the bale. I like that you can reverse the enhancer for an entirely different look. Very versatile piece.
Looks exactly a photographed. Two-sided reversible to a carved, sterling side! Colors are lovely together, silver, gold & turquoise, deep blood-red carnelian, and a little white pearl! My favorite part is how the silver vines twirl across the heart. No, maybe the little turquoise flower! So artfully done and one of a kind. That's why she's my fave!
My husband gave this to me today for Valentines day. It is beautiful and means so much to me. The detail on the Heart is outstanding!! Barbara keep on doing what you do your work is so beautiful.
I will always remember this Valentine's day!
Bale is Not working for this enhancer
Pretty Puffy Heart , but the bale is so small and that pretty pearl on top
prevents working the enhancer on O ring on some of Ms Bixbys necklaces .
I will return this Pretty Heart because I don't have a Bixy necklace it works on.
I'm sorry the first reviewer had a problem with hers because mine in perfect! I remember seeing this enhancer in the past and I never got around to ordering it before it was retired so I was thrilled to see it again. The combination of carnelian and turquoise is gorgeous and the touches of white topaz and the pearl are wonderful finishing touches. If it speaks to you please try it!! Barbara, you never disappoint....I always look forward to your new designs!
Bale does not detach like rendering...
I bought two and both have attached bales. My co worker has this and the bale is not attached. I know this because she showed me how she can wear it reversed. Looks like they were samples or a mistake.
Crack in heart, I hope everyone else's is better
My crack was very visible upon opening the package, it appears that it might have been cracked when "applying" the bottom center piece (I'm not a jeweler). I hope this was a fluke because it really is a beautiful piece, outstanding design and an edgy take, but I won't chance it again.
