I am very pleased with this purchase. Before ordering I did read the reviews which gave me second thoughts. I purchased the bracelet anyways and so glad that I did - I already own the matching ring which is also beautiful. I purchased the garnet with black sapphires bracelet the stones are too beautiful to describe. The black sapphires sparkle and the Garnets bright and the stones are flawless. Two concerns that I read in other reviews were packaging and the sizing. This bracelet came packaged as other of Barbara's jewelry - in a beautiful fabric bag and the Barbara Bixby box. As for the sizing I ordered a medium and my wrist measures 7 inches - this bracelet fits my wrist perfectly! Barbara thank you so much for the beautiful jewelry you bring us. To me it is eye candy!
Rated 4 out of 5 by CHIP62 TOO BIG AND NO BB POUCH?
Lovely design but the small size was too big for my wrist; also it did not come with
Ms Bixby 's pouch. This is not the end of the world but if you are a collector it is something that you would expect.
If you have a 7''wrist the small should be perfect.

I orded this bracelet in 3 different color schemes thinking that maybe I could make a decision between them once I got them home. WRONG!!! I LOVE THEM ALL and now I want to order the other 2 versions. A suggesion for another version is for one with white/clear stones on top (if not diamonds maybe white topaz) and citrine running along the cuff--Please consider that one Barbara :) LOVE THEM ALL!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Samslilangel I Love This Bracelet!!
This is a gorgeous bracelet!! A expensive, but deserved treat to me. The first order I received was too small. I ordered a large bracelet, but it wasn't in a plastic bag to see what size was actually sent to me. I sent it back and reordered another large. The second bracelet was perfect. It came in a plastic bag with sku# and I could definitely see a difference in the size from the first one. I would of thought packaging be better for a Barbara Bixby piece. All my other pieces have been and for the money we are paying the details are important. I never spend this much money on myself, but I'm glad I did with this bracelet. I love this bracelet! It is just beautiful. The garnet is my granddaughters birthstone and sapphire is mine so this piece will be treasured. The stone's are flawless and the sapphires glisten like diamonds. I would highly recommend. Too bad about the packaging and sizing issues though.
Rated 2 out of 5 by tco SIZING IS A TRAGEDY - BEAUTIFUL, BUT INCONVENIENT
The bracelet I received has the exact coloration in the garnets/rhodolite that were described in the presentation, which is a rich pink/violet. The black & white look of the sapphires & silver is classic, which is why I chose this combination. The bracelet is much too large for my wrist. I normally order 7 - 71/2" and this is not sized properly. I checked the packaging to verify what size I was sent, but there are no markings on the box nor on the plastic zip bag. Perhaps the sku # would have it, but there doesn't seem to be a size on the sticker as most Q items have. There is not a safe way to squeeze the bracelet so that it wraps more tightly around my wrist due to the stones and the hinge. I am giving 2 stars because I firmly believe that QVC should keep their promises: Quality, Value and Convenience. I have shopped at the Q for approx 25 years and all three of these promises keep being broken. I rely on other reviews, and too many customers have sizing issues or quality issues, and when these issues occur it creates an inconvenience. This is a beautiful bracelet. The hosts and the item's page should have informed customers that this runs large. Reviews for this bracelet in different choices of stones also mention the sizing problem. I will no longer give items good ratings if I am not completely satisfied.

This piece is classic Bixby - Unique and artistically beautiful. Love the mix of pink & black gemstones. That said, Barbara's "18k lotus flowers" are shrinking right before our eyes. I have BB pieces from previous years; by comparison you need a magnifying glass now to see them. Basically, not worth mentioning in the presentations. However, I still like this pricey bracelet!!

This bracelet is beautiful; I love the carving, the weight, and it fit me perfectly; however, I don't LOVE it enough to justify keeping it for the price. The garnet is quite a dark purple, and I was hoping for the more pink/fuchsia and brighter stones. I would love to see it in turquoise or other varieties of stones because it is such a work of art. Overall, a beautiful and lovely bracelet, but the stones were not my color.

This bracelet is well executed--stones, oxidation, weighted balance. I have a small wrist and the small was perfect. If you measure larger than a 7 it's gonna be tight! I vacuumed my entire house while admiring my wrist and feeling like a Queen B!
Worth every penny, you will never find this weight of silver combined with the quality of these stones in retail.
