Rated 5 out of 5 by marhalu In awe!
What surprised me most was the weight of this ring, was not expecting it to be so solid! I have been collecting Barbara's pieces for many years so I understand the level of detail collectors expect. That being said, I was blown away by the level of detail and artistry in this ring. I'm in awe when I admire the carved mother of pearl teeth, the unique carving of the abalone and how the garnet and topaz have been set. The tiny turquoise eyes just bring this ring to life! The ring for me, was true to size . It is comfortable, but I also could do without the dangle and I'm debating if I want to remove it. I can see the masks not being for everyone, but anyone who enjoys balinese artistry and the beautiful carvings and symbolism should not pass this up. I can't imagine ever finding a ring like this anywhere!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittylitter Wow... and that's and understatement
Such a great design! I looked up these masks on the internet and some of them are scary. I really love Barbara's version! I loved the color choices and stones. I can do without the dangles on the rings as I don't think they need it, but it doesn't get in the way much. It's a great size (I like larger rings with heft, which is what this is). You can see the detail nicely even at a short distance. As far as sizing, I got Size 6 for my middle finger and even though it does fit, it does feel a smidge smaller to me than Barbara's usual Size 6 but maybe it is due to the wide band. Highly recommend.

I had to order this ring. It just made me laugh each time I looked at it on-line. The design is amazing and the details are absolutely extraordinary. The craftsmanship is impeccable. I really enjoy wearing this ring.

So utterly Beautiful and Unusual! This ring really looks like a miniature theatre mask.
Exquisite detail and all of the stones are beautiful; love the rhodolite eyebrows and the icy blue topaz that complements the perfect abalone. My ring looks exactly like the photos and the video.
I am not a fan of the dangle beads on rings, but this turquoise bead gets out of the way nicely if you want the face to face you; no problem if facing your admirers.
I hesitated to order this ring because my fav ring is the Garuda, and so I thought will I always choose the Garuda over this ring? Well, no, so I originally ordered this ring for my second finger, but now I have reordered this ring for my first finger.
This ring is definitely a first or second finger ring, because it is wide and because you want to be able to see the elaborate shank silver carvings!
Barbara, you hit the ball out of the park with this creation! Such a sweet & happy face!
The workmanship is truly excellent.
I ordered this ring and the Tibetan Ram enhancer to go with it, rather than the matching mask enhancer, and the ram goes so nicely with the mask. It also goes nicely with my BB watch, with the blue mop and citrine face. I love this watch! Please bring back the pink version with the red leather band, as I ordered that one too and Q canceled my order!
I don't think there is another designer on the Q that even comes close to the designs of Ms. Bixby, and we are so lucky to have access to her collections. I love you Barbara!!!
