Barbara Bixby Sterling & 18K Gemstone Dolphin Key Enhancer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Sweet The design of this Key is truly wonderful! Why the 4 Stars? I felt as though it did not have the WOW factor that the earrings had. It's just a little bland and possibly would have been better with some other stones or abalone thrown in for good measure. It was priced accordingly (Thank you!), so all is well. I love the dolphins and they remind me of the beach side town where I grew up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a little disappointed I love the dolphin key on air and online, however, the 18k gold accents are very pale in color and can hardly be discerned in contrast to the silver on the one i received. In addition, the chalcedony drop that is advertized as aqua appears more milky white. I love this concept but may return it for a replacement to see if that is more like the pictures and in the video.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Beautiful! I have become a collector of BB's pieces, and truly enjoy the wearable art. While lighter in weight than some of my other enhancers, I believe the balance between quality and theme was met here. I love the dolphins and will go back for the earrings as soon as I can. Thank you, BB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I WILL BE BUYING MORE BARBARA! I purchased this dolphin key to enhance the black pearl Sparrow necklace aired along with it. IT is beautiful, the dolphins just glow and I love the blue gemstones on the key. ALl Barbara's enhancers are so beautiful, you can't help but buy more!Although expensive, a unique piece you won't see on everyone and the detailed settings make it worth every cent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy to have yet another key at a great price! This key is enchanting. It's quite different from my other BB keys. Its soft, light airy style is in contrast to some of her heavier keys. While substantial at 3 inches, the key has a diminutive feel to it, lighter in weight and style. My butterfly key (another favorite) also has a whimsical feel, but this key is thinner and lighter in construction. I absolutely adore the lovely dolphins (sculpted out of white mother of pearl and soft satin sterling) and the fresh drop of ocean (a suspended drop of aqua chalcedony) between them. Even the white topaz ball between the noses of the two dolphins is perfect. The ocean of blue topaz far below is just another Bixby touch. BB is an absolute genius and a national treasure. Everything she designs is amazing. Did I mention the fantastic price? This key is a steal. I will enjoy and cherish it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The key of life. I have been collecting Barbara's magnificent keys for years, and every one of them is so special to me. Each one I purchased to celebrate a life event or achievement, and when I wear them I feel connected to and honor that life milestone. This key has a very different feel, it inhabits it's own pure space. The dolphins are magically translucent in their mother of pearl skin, the gleaming chalcedony drop of blue ocean, the snake pattern encrusted with deep London blue topaz. Snake as the symbol of dreams, the symbol of medicine, the symbol of eternity and the continual renewal of life. Again, I treasure every Bixby key, but this key I could wear every day. This is the key of the present, this is the key of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way! I love the little art pieces that Barbara brings to us in tribute to the glorious creatures in nature. This is a beautiful rendition of the dolphin, with amazing detail and fine sculpting. The size is just right, and the addition of 18k gold makes it wearable with gold or silver. The blue topaz stones are vibrant, color-saturated, and perfectly matched. The mother of pearl adds a luminous quality to the figures, even a slight sense of movement. This little beauty will be a pleasant reminder of the delicate balance of nature, doing our part in preserving and protecting what we can, and a reminder to appreciate the good things that enter our path. (The only thing I would change with this and other enhancers is the clip portion of the enhancer. They are often hard to open and I never feel comfortable with enhancers - fearing they will open and be lost - unless they are spring operated.)
