This is the most beautiful chain I've ever seen. It is absolutely stunning. The workmanship is incredible. I have the original oxidized bracelet, and when I received the rhodium necklace decided to order the rhodium bracelet as well. I use the oxidized bracelet (which isn't too much darker) as an extension for the necklace when I want a longer length. If you're hesitating about ordering this necklace...DON'T! It's worth every penny.
Rated 3 out of 5 by ina389 Lenght Too Short
I love BB. I have a numerous pieces from her. I think she is one of the best unique jewelry designers. I was looking forward to received this chain in the mail. What a dissapointment! The labor and details are exceptionals but the lenght is too short. Used to be long. Now they make the lenght just 24" or so. Not long enough! QVC used to show it on tv in the longer lenght. Unfortunately this is the reason why I'm returning this item. I think is too expensive for the short lenght.
Rated 5 out of 5 by maderagirl Happy With Purchase
I am a huge fan of Barbara Bixby's jewelry. I have the original version of this eastern chain necklace, and I have worn it often. I was intrigued by the silver shine of this version of the necklace. I have wanted it for quite awhile, and I decided to order it when it was on sale. Great price, wonderful workmanship, and secure clasps. I adore Barbara's circle clasps and own all of the gemstone circles QVC offers. I have never had any problems with clasps opening. They make it so convenient to slip on an enhancer. Anyway, I have been wearing this necklace without enhancers----just on its own. To me, it doesn't go well with the oxidation on the enhancers and gemstone circle clasps. However, it is gorgeous on its own worn with a 18" silver cross necklace. Perfection!
Rated 3 out of 5 by dorich Stunningly Beautiful
This necklace is truly stunningly beautiful. I couldn't wait to receive it and when I did it was more beautiful than it appeared on television......BUT......it's on it's way back to QVC as I type because neither of the clasps would stay closed. I should have listened to all the negative reviews about the clasps but as I wanted the necklace so badly I ordered it anyway. I did not ask for an exchange, I asked for a refund to my original way of payment. I'm not taking the chance the an exchange would bring me another chain where the clasps don't stay closed. The least little movement of even your body and the necklace falls off. Very sad and disappointed. If you're lucky enough to have gotten one that stayed closed, I envy you.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheAlpha So much better than the original!!
This necklace just spoke to me after watching the video on how
each piece in this necklace was put together by hand--- 1,000's
of tiny silver bits are hand designed together to create this
masterpiece! My only problem with the first was the oxidation
was heavy & seemed to get worse while wearing...so when this
newer same styled but white "rhodium" piece became available,
I knew this would solve my issue. Yes, indeed now I have a
necklace which is so much cleaner & shinier!! This necklace is a
big purchase, but once you 'own' it & all your 'easy-pays' are
paid...you will have something so unique & versatile you will
wonder how you ever lived without it!! Thank you Barbara for
taking the time & effort to recreate this staple in your line so
those of us who like lighter oxidation have the choice. This
necklace has to be seen in person to truly see all the intricate
& remarkable details up close...the 4K HDTV & internet just
won't allow it. Btw: I have never had one bit of trouble with
Barbara's "O" rings...& I load my rings with both enhancers &
charms...no worries :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazon49 Beautiful Shine
I have this necklace in the original and always wished it had more shine. Received this and extremely happy. Regarding other comments about clasp, I have 13 on necklaces and 1 bracelet with these clasps and have never had an issue with clasp opening. I also have 5 individual clasps. That's 19 clasps and none of them are defective. If you have a bad clasp, I would recommend returning and getting a replacement!

I bought the necklace and bracelet. Both are beautiful. Lost the bracelet on the first wearing due to the easily opening clasp.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Clutey Clasp Not Very Good
Received the necklace and bracelet, first Barbara Bixby jewelry, I loved it but the clasp on both are not very sturdy. Open so easily that I would be afraid of losing after paying that much money. Needs a different kind of clasps and maybe some kind of safety clasp for me to keep it. If that was changed I would keep them. Have to get back to the drawing board for me to consider rebuying them.
