A Note from the Designer

Flames represent the fire of eternal love and the immortality of the soul. They're represented here in pavé pink garnet—a stone of love, compassion, and joy. I used 18K rose gold to symbolize the triumph of the spirit over matter. Amazonite is said to awaken compassion and create peace. I've added the skull, which is another symbol of eternity, as well as a beautifully carved section of mother-of-pearl to signify truth and purity.

—Barbara Bixby

Barbara Bixby Sterling & 18K Multi-Gemstone Heart & Skull Key Enhancer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty piece!! I only did 4 stars as I think it's overpriced but I'm keeping it. I love the meaning and have several of Barbara's pieces especially her crosses are some of my favorites too, from her website and from QVC. I think her enhancers are very unique and different.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from On The Fence I purchased this unfortunately at the full price. With shipping and tax it comes out approximately $360.00. I am factoring cost in with quality of item. I gave it three stars because of high price and it was a return. It has the return label on package and the skull's eyes must of been the defect. One is black and the other is not. When I first opened up the package I thought it was smaller than expected and I just did not get that omg I scored factor like I do with some items. I also felt the stones did not have much shine to them. I really do like it and I have wanted it for at least two years. This has been around since 2013 so from reading the reviews there have been a lot of returns for defects so I am thinking that perhaps the returns might be all they have left in stock? I think if I purchased with the sale price or if it was around the $200.00 mark I would be more elevated in my review. I'm just not sure how I feel about it....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A key to everlasting life, love, faith... This is an unusual and beautiful key - a striking and different piece in every respect. The design can be a reminder of love held eternal, steadfast and strong. I never gravitated to skull jewelry until I heart Barbara's explanation - the mind, the soul, eternity - represented by the skull. In the ethereal heart at the top, I am reminded of the sacred heart of Jesus or Mary, making the piece even more special. Whatever this beautiful art piece means to you, it is a real treasure. The gemstones are rich, saturated and radiant - like in the photo. Adding the 18k rose is so appreciated - and unusual - for Ms. Bixby's creations. This is a unique, wonderful heirloom quality item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Unique I don't know how she comes up with her designs but this key is really cool. I was glad to get it at the sale price. The regular price is a little too high. I like the way the rose is placed on the heart and the skull is my favorite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sad Return I think this key is one of the most beautiful pieces in this collection. However...when I purchase a piece of jewelry at full price I expect a new or new "looking" piece of jewelry to arrive. This must be someone's return, as it is bent, and the safety clasp on the enhancer won't hold tight. It was not in a Barbara Bixby Box either, it came in a box belonging to some piece of gold jewelry that had been returned. Major Bummer! Now I worry about purchasing another piece from her line, and it's all so amazing! Someone is not checking the return items to see if they are worthy to send back out, no quality control!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GORGEOUS WEARABLE ART This is my third key from Barbara and it does not disappoint!! This key is just beautiful. I love all the stones used in this piece and the detail is amazing in this work of art. The skull is not scary, it is somehow kinda calming to me. I know, I know...kinda weird but it's true. I love her heart with flame design. I wish I would have bought the heart/flame pendant when it was available. Any chance on bringing that one back Barbara?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pretty but comes with challenges I had been watching this piece for months, and finally when it came back in stock I ordered it. It is beautiful and the craftsmanship very good, but it is heavy and a long piece. You need a substantial chain to put it on because of it's size. The BB chains are lovely, but very expensive after already paying a hefty price for this key. It also tends to rest to one side or another by design rather than laying flat. After wearing it once or twice and realizing all of this, plus it is not something I can wear every day because it is so ornate, I sent it back. I buy a lot of Judith Ripka, so vintage is more my style and I can dress it up or down. This pendant requires a specific top to be able to wear with it. I gave it 4 starts because it is beautiful and well made, just not easy to add to my wardrobe and for the price, I want something I can wear more often.
