Rated 5 out of 5 by leobones Beautiful Key!
I bought this key and wore it on Barbara's textured link 22" necklace to a family gathering. I got a ton of compliments and everybody wanted to know where I got it from. :-) I also wore my Barbra Bixby flower ring in Garnet. It made a great combination.
Rated 5 out of 5 by chrisq2 Yet another favorite!
I am slowly, but steadily buying all of BB's QVC keys and many of her other enhancer designs, as well. I just cannot resist the keys and can't help collecting them. This one is lighter and airier than many of the others I have and I absolutely love it. I didn't even try and wait for a price drop, I just bought it immediately. I believe that my BB key collection will one day be valuable, but even if it isn't I simply love them all.
I even find myself on the website staring all all of her creations and watching videos that I've already seen fifty times. I even stare at designs I already own. I'm obsessed with her work, no one does jewelry like Barbara Bixby. Her designs are amazingly intricate without being busy. I've always been drawn to big pieces and I only want large pieces of quality. BB is my go-to for that.
I just bought another BB key that did have a price drop. It's the one with the enamel and a lot of gold clad parts to it. I'll review it after it arrives, but I'm sure it will be stunning as all of the others are.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Linmarvan Reflection of Beauty
Joseph R. Buchanan, an American professor of physiology, came up with the term Psychometry back in the late 1800's when he found that some of his students could successfully guess the contents of various vessels simply by touching them - without using any senses besides their intuition. It's from the Greek word psyche, meaning “soul," and he believed that objects have “souls” that retain a memory of people, events and emotions that they have been exposed to.
This, to me, is one of the primary reasons why I feel drawn to Barbara's jewelry so much. Her jewelry seems to resonate with so much energy; and through her designs, she allows us to see something that wouldn't ordinarily be seen, through her unique way of seeing.
It's almost as if her beautiful soul is infused within each design, and we feel more beautiful for having seen it.
This key is another reflection of that beauty.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DesignerGirl92 Excellent Quality & Design
This key is breathtaking. The stones are amazing in quality, color, saturation and sparkle. The design, overall quality and use of substantial 18K gold accents could easily put this key directly into Barbara's high end couture line. Thank you Barbara and QVC for bringing it here instead! I was able to get it when it debuted and received the special pricing and easy pays. That really helped a lot in bringing this beauty home.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Roro Unique, detailed Bixby design!
This key has excellent design elements, beautiful stones, and a weighty heft to it! The size is very substantial, too! My only issue was the key lock, itself, and the figure-eight safety catch. Both were quite loose and when I looked down, the key had fallen off the chain and was gone. Fortunately, I found it in my driveway. I was able to tighten both locks but I'm constantly looking down to check it. QVC, your quality control needs to do a better job checking for these flaws! All in all, beautiful key!
Rated 3 out of 5 by u4reah Design beautiful, stones meh
I would have kept this for the design alone if the price were lower. This is a large key, would would have looked great on the 36" texture link necklace. The design is fabulous but as another reviewer said, for this price, I expected better quality stones. The key I recieved, stones did not really sparkle nor pop which made the key overall just dull and lifeless. gave 3 stars for the design and size but I sent mine back.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seashell Girl Pretty but inconsistant stone color
I am on the fence about keeping this piece. I was expecting the colors in my key to look like the photo. The Blue Topaz stones are beautiful and well matched, but the pink Rhodolite stones at the top are drastically different than the baguette at the bottom of the key. The stones in the flower are a very light pink color and the garnet in the baguette is very dark and almost black looking. I expected a better stone match for the cost of this piece. I usually have trouble with the clasps on this artists enhancers, but this one is working as it should. I love the size and the design, I just wish for more consistency.

I just got this key today it's so much prettier in person. I waited and waited and finally saw this and knew I had to have it. The workmanship is incredible on this piece. Thanks so much for making it I feel like a million bucks.
