Barbara Bixby Sterling & 18K Gemstone Egyptian Ankh Enhancer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bixby never fails to impress!! Gorgeous piece!! I love every single BB item that I have. I'm very happy with this Ankh because I've wanted a pretty one for so long. I own and adore many lovely crosses from BB and and other designers, but I'm always on the lookout for other meaningful symbols. The deep Caribbean blue chalcedony really POPs! The bail on this Ankh is waaay too small. I had to attach it to a BB circle and then that to another larger bail to get it on the thick Jai chain I wanted to put it on. It looks fab btw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Rhodolite I have the BB amethyst ankh and I really like it. I like the exceptionally large and vibrant pink garnet stones but the blue green chalcedony just did not work for me; the horizontal chalcedony are smooth and yet mine had what looked like an attempt to have a carving on them; the bottom chalcedony had a pineapple cut with many tiny triangles. The mother of pearl eye is very subtle, too subtle for me. I have so many beautiful BB enhancers, including the new bee pendant and the older turquoise & garnet cross, that I know I wouldn't wear this new ankh often. I was just under whelmed with this new pendant and I returned it right away so someone else can enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glorious, Meaningful, Eternally Perfect! Wow, I really love this piece. In appearance alone it is captivating, interesting, and enchanting. The stones are ALL well-matched and color saturated. (In the online photo the aqua blue seemed a little different from each other, but I am guessing it is due to the intense studio lighting and the bottom stone showing darker because it is larger. In person they all match perfectly.) The Eye of Horus is just right - understated and softer in appearance than many other more geometric versions. The gold leaf, gold eye dot, and gold flower add crowning touches. If you love Egyptology, Ancient Astronaut Theory, symbols, history, mythology, etc. you will probably be drawn to this beauty of a creation. So very special - a real treasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Twist on a Classic First let me say, I was extremely surprised the show host & others did not know what an Ankh is? Really?? It defines Ancient Egyptian Culture, it's a well recognized symbol of Egyptian culture. Ok, Oh Well lol Barbara Bixby Always interprets objects with her own unique Artists Eye! That's why I love her creativity so much! This piece is no exception. Her use of color with the gemstones is so unique. She chose love and calmness with the Garnet and the chalcedony, to represent the Egyptian Ankh's meaning of everlasting life. The garnets are incredibly vibrant. I love the fact that she chose to use the cross arms with carved stones and the bottom stone is faceted. It's always something unexpected when she creates, never ever the usual. This piece is a lot livelier than an ancient Ankh or a traditional modern Ankh would be. Nevertheless the colors represent a true artist palette.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely Balanced Work Of Art Full of luminous colour..it's quite fascinating to gaze at I almost want to put it in my pocket so I can look at it from time to time. It reminds me so much of historic pieces that are seen in museums and history books. This is another unique piece...from the one and only Barbara Bixby, and I'm loving it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ethereal Ankh! I think this ankh is absolutely wonderful. I could not wait to receive it, and when it arrived, it went immediately around my neck straight from the box. I could wear this particular enhancer every single day and be perfectly happy. The stones are so bright, and the Eye of Horus is amazingly detailed at its center. It is going to be my signature piece. I have finally found a piece of jewelry that is worthy of that distinction and that also reflects my love of ancient Egyptian culture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I highly recommend this beautiful ankh (which will often be mistaken for a cross). It's a very special piece. Again, Ms. Bixby demonstrates her amazing design talent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have To Love It This second rendition of the ankh is leagues better than the previous version brought to QVC. I love the chalcedony and how tranquil it is. As the other reviewer stated, the larger rhodolite garnet stones at the top have greater presence, while the smaller stones lack the vibrancy of color. The eye of Horus doesn't leap out at you but I think it has its happy place. I'm still waiting for the couture fleur-de-lis ankh. I don't think anything can beat the original.
