Rated 4 out of 5 by Andi_B I'd love to see them in white topaz!
Pretty hoop. I bought the pink. I would love to see these in white topaz. if anyone else feels the same maybe cvc will listen and make them. My only complaint is they are a little heavy. Not terrible though. sturdy earrings. You can also hear them reversed if you put the post in from the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JDM Apatite Is Beautiful

Ordered tanzanite and pink tourmaline,
Colors on the tanzanite vary from washed out to medium on one earring. Both earrings are different, so they don't match,
Also one earring in each pair won't stay clasped on either pair. Had to return.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ANee Beautiful but a bit heavy
I own a few Barbara Bixby pieces. Always find her jewelry to be unique, lovely works of art. I ordered these earrings in apatite in easy pay. They arrived today. Each earring wrapped so very carefully in bubble wrap, then a plastic zip bag, then the BB box. The care taken there was impressive. The earrings are beautiful. The picture online seems very true to me, except that the apatite seems more greenish in my picture but is definitely blue in real life. The earrings are sturdy and substantial. The closure is a silver wire which pushes into an opening on a hinged part of the earring. Some of you may have hinged bracelets from Barbara--these hoops open and close like that, but you cannot see the hinge at all when they are on. It's somehow invisible. The earrings do not have cutouts in the front design but they do in the back to lighten their weight. They have a design all around, but the apatite and gold accents are only on the front. They are truly beautiful. The only reason why I gave them four stars is that although they are comfortable for sure, I find them a bit heavy and I have to see if I will be able to keep them (I need to know I will wear them enough because they are expensive). When I first put them on they feel quite heavy to me but then I get used to them. Just need to see if they make my ears hurt after a while. I would say they are a good-sized hoop--not huge, but definitely significant in size. For me, I just wish they were a little lighter. That is my ONLY hesitancy. They are very solid and finely designed and made. High quality.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dollchu Perfect Bixby Hoop Earrings
I received the apatite hoop earrings and I love them so much that, now, I have ordered a second pair in the pink tourmaline. They are a perfect size hoop and beautiful on the outside and the inside of the hoop.
The back of the hoop scroll lacy design has some cut outs to help lessen the weight. These are my most comfortable BB earrings: nice thin wire and not too heavy; each earring weighs 6 grams on my scale.
The apatite is a soft aqua blue, a little more aqua colored than the blue topaz floral TSV ring, but very similar in color. The color is soft - nothing like the new floral button blue topaz earrings which are a deep electric blue ( I returned the button earrings because no gold presence.)
The apatite goes nicely with the BB Egyptian Ankh Cross with apatite; the BB skull & butterfly key enhancer; all of the BB abalone pieces; the BB turquoise leather pieces; the BB Gecko enhancer, etc.
Very nice gold presence and lots of oxidation; can't wait to get the pink tourmaline. If these earrings are made with Madeira Citrine, I will buy them. I love hoops and these are really special! Thanks so much Barbara!
