Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous Enhancer I own this from Barbara Bixby's first iteration. This enhancer is beyond lovely. I still wear it often and alway get compliments. It is unique. Highly recommend! 08-28-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most Favorite Enhancer Ever! I am delighted to see this available again! I bought this years ago and fell in love with it instantly but alas, it was STOLEN! I was heartbroken. Now I'm ordering it again and can't wait to get it! The heart is a lovely chunky piece of deeply colored carnelian; not orange but more of a deep red-burgundy. The turquoise really makes it pop along with the beautiful sterling scroll work and frame of gold around the turquoise. It is dramatic, bold and stunning. You will be thrilled with this when it arrives to your home! 06-20-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunningly Gorgeous I just received this and it is even prettier than the picture shows. The design is beautiful, balanced and artistically gorgeous. It is large and I wore it on a 32 " chain . I"m not sure I would wear it on 18" chain as it seems too large - but maybe with the right outfit!! The only concern I have is that there is no safety guard on the bail. It seems likely that it could come loose and I would lose this precious gem. I may end up sending it back because I love, love, love it and would be heartbroken if I lost it because of no safety guard. 04-23-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic I bought this for a Barbara Bixby necklace. I love the weight and size of this piece. It stands alone! Has a great look. I also like to wear a turqouise bead chain necklace with it. Just makes this pendant pop! Best enhancer she has ever done! 03-30-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanted This Pendant Forever! Beautiful and classic BB. The Turquoise really pops on the Carnelian and such beautiful detail to this heart ! 01-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Echoing the other reviews... I also got this years ago and love it more now than when I got it. Every time I put it on I appreciate the amount of work and thought that went into it. Like the matching earrings, the back is just as pretty as the front, and you can reverse the pendant! I have several BB pieces and I really love them all, hard to pick favorites. BB stuff is pricey at first glance, but over time I forget what I paid because I wear each piece time and time again and never fail to marvel at the detail and quality. 12-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by SO HAPPY TO SEE THIS OLD FRIEND AGAIN!! This was one of the first pieces I bought from Barbara's line back in the day. It has always reminded me of something from a museum -- so unique and lovely. Yes, the carnelian is dark, but it is a thick stone and that pop of turquoise and the white topaz and silver with the pearl top enhance the look overall and keep it from being too dark a piece. It's one of my all time favorites and I'm so glad they brought this one back. Yes, the bail does come off. That is not a defect, but done on purpose so you can wear it the way you want. If you are wondering whether or not to get this, wonder no longer. It's a MUST! I don't think there are many out there who have purchased it and wanted to return it after seeing it! 09-07-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning I have owned this enhancer for many years and it is one of my favorites. I'm so happy to see that Barbara Bixby is bringing back some of her past designs. I highly recommend this enhancer - it is beautiful and timeless. 07-14-14
