Rated 4 out of 5 by taylorkitsch Beautiful Key
I love Bixby Keys. This is how I personally started collecting her pieces. They are very detailed and intriguing. This one is high on my list of beautiful keys. My only concern is that the welo opal is not as intense as I thought it would be. But the detail and workmanship alone overpower that. I will keep as it is still a beautiful and thought provoking piece of art.

I love this key design. It is so beautiful, but due to drab iolite and a so-so opal, I could not justify spending the money for this key. I was really looking forward to this key because I am an amateur beekeeper and love the little bee on this key. I sadly returned it. The apatite and pink garnet stones were very nice, but they could not overcome the lackluster iolites.

Very disappointed in the quality of the iolites and the opal. The iolites were brown rather than brilliant blue. The opal resembled a jelly bean.

I can't even express how stunning this key is. Definitely similar to her couture pieces. It has dimension that you can't see in the QVC photos and video - it is thick and rounded in the back. The detail on the carving and in the gemstones is exceptional. I've read other reviews / comments online from those who didn't receive high quality stones, but I lucked out and got a total winner. This is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry that I own - gorgeous.

After waiting over 2 weeks to finally get this, so disappointed.
I am a major Bixby collector.
The opal is yellowish and cloudy. No fiery blues, pinks coming out.
The iolite are dull and light in color.
Garnets are also dull.
Could have been a winner, as the design itself is beautifil,but unfortunately the gems are a failure.

I don't usually care much for Bixby's more "whimsical" pieces, but this key is just charming in every way! The opal is fiery with reds, yellows, greens and blues dancing with every movement. I especially love the low relief carving along the shaft of the key-it works back perfectly with some bracelets I have from Bixby's couture line. I even find the little bee to be enchanting, and I'm not usually a "critter" jewelry person. I haven't taken this piece off since I received it-LOVE!!
