This is such a beautiful clip but it doesn't stay closed. Each clip should be tested before sent out.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Kary May Poor stone quality and hard to open
Back in the box it goes and returned. I wish QVC had a good quality control and inspected items before being shipped. Very poor stone quality mismatched. Looks like 2 London blue topaz and 2 sky blue topaz with cracks or broken stones. Also is so tight it's hard to open with both hands, let alone with it attached to something. Then it's nearly impossible to unattach it. At this price it should be exceptional quality. Very disappointed. 2 stars for the silver work other wise would be one star since I can't do zero stars.

If you plan on collecting BB necklaces and pearls, these rings are necessary. I own most of the colors and I use them to mix and match. In fact, I found that the very small rings are loose when you purchase them or loosen quickly so these extra pieces are necessary. I haven't had this problem with this size connector ring. The gem stones are fabulous and add so much to the personality of the piece you are wearing.

It wasn't until I watched Barbara display her various closing
circles did I see how much these 'lotus' gemstones enhanced
the over all look of her necklaces. I have all "5" now since 1st
being available on the "Q". Every gemstone I have received is
vibrant, saturated, sparkly & very noticeable. I just received
my 'citrine', 'topaz' & 'iolite'..I couldn't get over how much
these gemstones shined. Sometimes, I receive a jewelry item
& the gems are off in some way: no shine nor sparkle. So far,
these recent gemstone connectors are 'out of this world'!!!!!!
I would NOT wait if you are considering bcuz once they are
'sold out' (even on Barbara's Couture website) it takes a while
for them to be restocked!! I'm super stoked I have 'em ALL :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by chrisq2 Love'm all!
First I got the rhodoliite, then the blue topaz, the iolite and recently the citrine. I have a few of the gold flower ones, small and large from various pieces also. I absolutely love them all. I use these with so many different necklaces and pendants. They're so versatile and useful. I put the recent citrine one on a long JR chain and attached my JR sun-stone pendant to it, GORGEOUS! I create separate necklaces, by attaching a connector ring to a particular necklace with a specific pendant and then I glue it all shut to make sure I don't lose anything. This works great for me and I haven't lost anything yet. You can use acetone nail polish remover to remove the glue and re-open everything, if need be. I do sometimes change the necklaces around for different looks.
One of my favorite necklaces so far is my new BB Sterling & 18K 22" Textured Link Necklace and the BB Sterling & 18K Gemstone Cross Enhancer with the rhodolite connector ring. The whole thing is just perfect together. My rhodolite flower ring matches the stones in the cross perfectly. Maybe it's because I bought the ring a long time ago.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dollchu Gemstone Flower too Flat
I ordered the Rhodolite and planned to order two more in different stones, but I was not impressed with the garnet flower. First of all, the flower was too flat; the stones just seem to lay even with the too large and too noticeable bezel. Also, the color was medium pink, so it did not match my BB Paisley Abalone Enhancer, which was the main item I wanted it for, which has a vibrant fuchsia color and pop out dimension; and also, it did not look right with my new BB black spinel and rhodolite Gothic Cross, as the stones on the cross are much lighter and a prettier pink.
Anyway, I'll stick with the gold circle connectors, or maybe splurge and buy one of BB's couture ones!
BTW, the circle connector was excellent and the closure excellent; so it was just the look I didn't care for. I would have liked the blue topaz and the citrine but I don't like the flat look.
Rated 5 out of 5 by maderagirl Adds a Stunning Detail
I have all 5 gemstone connectors now, after picking up the last three I needed on EZ Pay day. Each one is a small work of art. I choose which connector to add to a Barbara Bixby necklace based on which stones are in the enhancer I'm going to wear. The connectors are a bit larger than the connectors that came with the Eastern chain necklace. I like the larger size. Each connector snaps securely, and all of the gems are beautifully vibrant.
