Rated 5 out of 5 by DancesWithBeagles 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.

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 Hopper53 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!

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 oldhousegirl 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.

Barbara is to jewelry what Stevie Nicks is to Rock n' Roll: an icon, a legend in her own time, a goddess on earth. This key, like all of her work, is enigmatic, full of spirit, and undeniably beautiful. If you have the opportunity to get this key, I highly recommend it. I have this as well as the Eternity Key. They are both among my favorite pieces, and each one has its own special appeal. LOVE!

Again Barbara has out done herself. This heart glows with love and the skull is there for protection. The skull adds just that little edge that you need for a modern piece of jewelry. Love my Barbara Bixby.
