Rated 5 out of 5 by Hedges Too Cool Bangle
A GREAT Bangle but again, a little pricy. Very good quality & really pretty though. I have larger hands & can't typically get a bangle on but the "Average" size worked perfect.

I've purchased other Barbara Bixby bangles and loved them. So I was excited to see the iolite bangle. Was quite disappointed when I opened the package and seen the iolites. The color was washed out and light in color. Looked like light amethyst. I'm debating if I want to keep or try exchanging for another, although another review said the same about the quality. I'd recommend the bangle, but with another gemstone.

Once again BB does a wonderful job. I now own three of these. The stones are excellent quality and they all look nice worn together.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Leonora poor design
I bought this bangle in the iolite and the color was very light and not as pictured online.
More important is the design. In my opinion a bangle that does not open needs to be an oval shape so it will fit over the hand. My wrist is small (5 3/4") but I could barely get the small bangle over my hand. Also the oval shape is much more attractive and comfortable to wear since the wrist itself is oval shaped and not round. It would be well worth the price if more thought was put into the comfort of the wearer.

I am a bangle collector, they are my preferred bracelet. So when Barbara started with the bangles on the Q a few years back I was thrilled. I have at least one of all of her bangles and when this design came out I was hoping for more colors and hope more are coming in this style and the other one that is currently only offered in garnet and citrine or another style. I purchased the average size in the peridot and idolite. The are the same size as my existing flower bangle bracelets. The stones are a beautiful apple green and blue/purple and I am so glad to have more options color wise. I will be picking up the madeira also at some point. I hope to see more options in these colors (peridot, idolite,madeira ) in pendants and rings. I have all the london blue, garnet, and black sapphire that I want and am looking for new color options from this line. Highly recommend!

I simply loved this style of bangle when it was introduced and was disheartened when it disappeared from inventory because I had hoped to acquire a wrist full of them! I was lucky enough to get the pave version in black sapphire and rhodolite garnet and then a citrine, a black sapphire, and a rhodolite gemstone version. I still felt I was not 'finished' - haha. OH JOY, they have returned and I just added peridot and iolite to my collection! The iolite is perfect - not so dark that it's hard to see the color, not so light as to appear 'washed out.' I like oxidation on my bracelets and my iolite bangle has the right amount. The peridot is pale, both in gem color saturation and in oxidation treatment, but that just adds a bit of spice to the mix! I am pretty happy with my new color choices…although I might not be finished collecting these bangles!

Gorgeous design, Iolite stones are a really nice blue and bangle design is stunning. Size is way off. I ordered the average and I have a fairly large wrist (usually wear a 71/2 bracelet). This is huge and runs up my arm. I haven't decided whether to keep it or not.
I hate to return it, because it is so pretty. The smaller one definitely won't fit. I wonder if all BB's bracelets don't run true to size.
