Rated 5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bixby Beauty I have 3 Bixby heart enhancers that are all very different from each other. I am a heart collector. This heart is gorgeous with the intricate silver work detail, and the blue apatite pops so wonderfully against the black onyx. I'm very lucky that I was able to get it. 04-10-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Heart! I received this lovely heart pendant for Christmas from my husband (I placed the order). It is beautiful, the blue really pops and I took another reviewer's recommendation and wore it on the blue pearls that came with the initial pendant years ago. Perfect match, I love it and am so happy that I added it to my vast Bixby collection. 01-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Be Still My Heart! I was blown away when I opened the box to reveal this beauty. The brilliant blue apatite stones really pop and the silver workmanship is outstanding. I have worn this pendant many times since receiving it a few months ago, but it never grows stale -- one of my all-time favorites. Would love to see a coordinating earring with this same shade of apatite. Thanks to BB for creating a modern treasure! 09-19-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Regal, yet sweet I've had this enhancer for over a year and worn it at least 70 or 80 times. It is exactly the right size to feel substantial but never too bulky or big. The silverwork is gorgeous and the colors are perfect for all seasons. When I wear black outfits it stands out but not too much - it's really just an elegant piece. We call it the "game of thrones enhancer." I have the matching ring which I've worn almost every day for the past few years. This is a piece worth buying while it's available. I very highy recommend it and I'm a Bixby collector with more than a hundred pieces. 04-10-15

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely! I bought the ring that went with this piece that was offered a while back. Because I love hearts, and Barbara's work in particular, this was a 'no-brainer' for me. The heart is flat on the back side, which doesn't bother me but may some. The apatite is the neon shade shown and the pearl is the matching gorgeous teal pictured. The intricate silver work on the dark onyx stone is reminiscent of that other popular carnelian and turquoise heart enhancer Barbara did years ago, which I also have. If you have and love that one, this one is a must. So glad I got one when I did as there is no telling how long these will be available! 01-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It Love, Love, Love it. It goes with a lot of things. LBT nice, rich and deep color. Nice weighty piece,LOVE anything BIXBY 11-17-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Her Best Yet! I Just got this enhancer in the mail today and I am SPEECHLESS. To say that it's "beautiful" is not enough. It's edgy, gothic, and victorian at the same time, looks amazing on a black cord and, if you happen to have the indigo pearl necklace that came with the initial enhancer a few years ago, it looks fantastic on that too! I wear a lot of jeans and black tops and this will be my favorite accessory for a long, long time..It also looks great paired with the white topaz hoops. It's not like anything else- just STUNNING. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE absolutely EVERYTHING about it!!!!!!!! 11-07-13
