Barbara Bixby Sterling/18K Carved Mother-of-Pearl Buddha Charm
I received my charm yesterday in the mail...he was perfect! The carving was exquisite, the topaz were brilliant blue and every detail was in place. How wonderful in something that is a square inch?! I have to politely disagree with the other reviewer...the charm is perfect size for a charm. One wouldn't want a large charm clunking around the wrist - it could become damaged. I now own the Buddha ring, earrings, enhancer and charm and they are some of the most Sacred pieces of jewelry that I own. Namaste!
I was gifted this some time ago;I recently wore it on the Bixby TSV necklace adapting it to hang with a silk cord between the two rings. I received so many compliments!!! As always, Barbara's pieces are unique, well-made, and versatile.
My jaw hit the floor when I opened the box...it was so small. For the amount of money spent on this purchase I expected something more impressive, both in size and quality of materials used. Wore it around the house a few times trying to establish an emotional connection, but all I felt was foolish for spending so much money. Had purchased the set - ring, earrings and charm. Sent them all back.
He is handsome
I think he is a little pricey, but very cute, i can't stop looking at him. I also don't think i can go to any jewelry counter ,and find ,any thing as well crafted or as beautiful for this price. I have a lot of Barbara Bixby, and treasure most of them.
Very beautiful and a sense of relaxation when look at the gorgeous Mother of Pearl face.
Great detail just wish it was a bit larger. It is very unqiue
I love this charm! Thank you BB for listening to your customers and bringing this in. The carving is fabulous, the stones beautiful. This really is peace at a glance. I just get lost looking at his face. Why the 4 stars and not 5, well the enhancher bail on my charm will not hook but the safty 8 lock will hook so I will try keeping him for now.
