Rated 4 out of 5 by Ridley Exquisite Little Key
Like the other reviewer, I too was underwhelmed when I opened the box. I knew this wasn't going to like one of BB's other longer keys, but I was a tad disappointed in the size seeing it for the first time. Aside from the length, this has got to be one of the most gorgeous keys Barbara has ever done. It's also a very expensive key for the size. For the price, Barbara could at least have had the black sapphires go all the way around; especially because there aren't that many of them. The rose gold presence is fantastic, maybe that explains the price. How AWESOME this key would be in the larger size! Anyway, I'm deducting 1 star because I think the sapphires should have gone all the way around. I also think the price is way too high for the size. I'm going to keep it, though, because it's so beautiful.

First, let me say this key is lovely, like all of BB's keys. Because there's no way to submit a second review regarding the same item, I'm adding it here (hope it get's past Q review). I've been reading all of the reviews about the Dragon key and I think I have some helpful information to add to the discussion.
Many have stated that the body/tail of the dragon is dull and the stones at the tip of the tail don't stand out. I'm definitely a fan of oxidation, but I prefer that the silver not be too dark.
A while back, I carefully cleaned my "Key of Dreams: with jewelry cleaner and the result was magnificent. The garnets sprang to life and popped like never before. I decided to give it a try on the Dragon Key and the result is nothing short of spectacular.The abalone/MOP body/tail is much more vibrant and fiery, The stones in the tail are much brighter and show up without specifically looking for them. The whole tail is now a fluid mass of fire.
I might do a little more careful cleaning and I do recommend CAREFUL cleaning to avoid causing any damage to the key and stone settings.
So, if you think you'd like your Dragon Key to be brighter I cautiously recommend giving it some attention. I liked my key to begin with, but now I love it even more.

Love the rose gold flower that is bigger on this charm than her other pieces. I wear it with two Bronzo black spinel necklaces for a great layered look. This combo looks lite and airy.

I think I was one of the first to receive this little beauty. I have to be honest...when I first took it out of the box, I was underwhelmed. So I went around and around about whether I'd return it or keep it. Then I started playing around with my TSV, and suddenly it seemed to bloom into an absolute STUNNER! I started looking more and more closely at it. There is so much detail packed into this charm that it's unbelievable. It seemed a bit pricey to me at first, but I get it now. Take my word for it that it's worth the price. A LOT went into this charm. It will look so beautiful with so many other charms and pieces, that I now think of this as a must-have. As always, thank you, Barbara!
