Barbara Bixby Sterling/18K Multi-Gemstone Dragonfly Hinged Cuff
Colors dont come through
I LOVE Barbara's style and real gems. However, The abalone is dull in the wings and the bracelet needs more punch! Color! I love the design and the bracelet, but for the price I am returning it. All it would take is some better abalone for wings! and some bright bling on the bracelet. No problem falling off for me, but just dull. I so wanted to keep it!
I have many expensive pieces but this one only rates a 3 because of lack of color.
I was so excited to get this beautiful bracelet. I put it on for the first time and before even leaving the house the hinge opened and it fell off several times. I got in the car and looked and it was missing. apparently It had fallen off while I was digging in my purse. Then I went shopping and it probably came off 10 more times. Luckily I didn't lose it. I sent it back because who needs to lose a $400 plus bracelet!
Design is lovely but the bracelet does not stay "right side up"- always having to correct it. The abalone was dull and the pave garnet was hardly present. A piece of the abalone was missing. Very over-priced for abalone and little garnet. Quality control is very poor. These flaws should have been caught before sending.
This bracelet is perfection jewelry. I rarely write a review but this bracelet deserves a comment of praise. When one considers the process of creating this piece, it is a wonder that we can purchase it at this price. Thank you for bringing this unique and flattering bracelet to QVC. Barbara, you are fantastic!!!
Unique beautiful design!
One of my favorite bracelets. The V shape curving down towards the hand is very attractive looking and the dragonfly is set at an angle which I love. I love all of the stones and the color of each one. I can't stop looking at it when I wear it. The workmanship is excellent and I am very happy with this purchase!
can't see pave
fits like a glove, but can't see garnet pave, and piece is too overpriced for abalone. upgrade this design and i'm in. (kept her grasshopper enhancer though).
This cuff is very unique. But I do have to agree with the other reviewer that it is a bit "dull" looking in color. When I received my cuff there was a flaw in the chalcendney stone so I returned it for another. When I received my replacement the color in the abalone was much brighter and it actually "flickers" in the light, just like a real dragon fly. I guess I lucked out. This is a beautiful piece of jewelry. It is very well made and has a nice weight to it.
It's a beautiful concept for a bangle, however it's not very practical. The wings kept getting stuck on my clothes and ripped my stockings, as well as the dragonfly kept turning over so I spent all day turning it right side up it got very annoying. Oh well, was so excited to get on onetime price easypay but it just wasn't for me. Certainly way overpriced - if I'm going to pay that much I expect the bangle to sit nice and comfortable so that I can use it all the time.
I luv this cuff. It is made so well and the off to the side dragonfly is such a nice touch. I wear an eight inch and the large fits me just fine.
Given the weight, unique design, stones, gold, and the cost of silver...this is a wonderful buy.
Luv this little dragonfly sitting off to the side on my wrist. Have received many compliments. Thank you Barbara
WORK OF ART
This is a gorgeous bracelet!!! It is very wearable and stunning cuff!!! Can't believe the negative reviews. The dragonfly is so beautiful and it's wings just glow. So glad I got this one!!!
I was so excited to receive this bracelet. The fit was perfect and it is extremely pretty but I am sending it back. I just do not feel like the bracelet should have cost as much as it did. I do not think it was worth the steep price tag. Sorry I think BB has some very beautiful pieces but this one was not for me.

I have many of BB's pieces and I feel that she an artist w/ her jewelry.
Unfortunately I sent this piece back because it kept turning around on my
wrist and that was not a good thing.
I do have the dragonfly enhancer that I purchased a while ago and I
