J158827 - Barbara Bixby Sterling/18K Cabochon & Pave' Gemstone Ring
I bought this ring last year in pink and absolutely love it. It is my favority ring of all the ones I have bought at QVC. The center doublet has an iridescence ( or chatoyancy ) as I move my hand. Mine is not rough at all. If the blue one were still available in size 10 I would order it too.
Beautiful And Serene To Look At
Wow! This artisan piece is the most beautiful piece I've seen in awhile..... It reminds me of a serene ocean on a clear day! I'm so excited about this ring..... My friends all love it! It was worth the price I paid!
This ring is stunning in person. I ordered it in the pink. Barbara's designs are so whimsical and unique. The easy pay and free S&H made this an attractive purchase. However, the ring was too large for my finger and the tourmaline stones snagged my clothing. I agree with the other reviewer who noted a concern about ruining finer fabrics. Sadly, I returned it.
This is my first BB purchase which turned out to be a very nice surprise. This ring
Is not for everyone I happen to have long thin fingers so it compliments me.
The look and color reflects well against my skin tone. The east to west position along
with the great combination of pink, silver and touch of gold makes it extra special.
I also like the creative sentiment behind its design.
This is the beginning of a beautiful relationship with BB creative works. First wear out and already received a compliment.
Beauty in the rough!
This is a beautiful ring, but the pave is very rough. As I passed my co-worker it caught her silk blouse and caused a terrible snag. I felt the ring and realized how rough all the prongs were. Unfortunately, I am returning it. All I could think of was the multitude of snags I would get on my fine silks and hand made items. Sorry Barbara. Maybe next time.
ok, I tried it...
Ok, I read the reviews and decided to order the ring anyway during the Sterling Silver Designer Event. I must say this is a unique design I really wanted the ring in celebration of my new born baby girl therefore, I have the pink color which was my motivation. However, I understand the other reviewers the pave snags everything and I found the ring is uncomfortable to wear when you place your fingers closely together as to shake someones hand. However, the ring is beautiful. I will try it out a little longer and see if we get to know one another better and work together.
Received this ring yesterday and haven't taken it off! This ring is stunning and a work of art. Barbara does fabulous work. Yes, the ring will catch on certain fabrics; put it on last. Anytime you have prongs, they will catch on something. I feel that the ring is worth a little more caution when wearing it. I have other rings that will catch if I am not careful. I didn't send any of them back and I'm not sending this one back either!!!! Thanks Q and Barbara. I'm thrilled with this purchase!
Just not Barbara
This ring is just not to Barbara's standards: I wonder how much quality control she had input into this piece. I can't see BB sending out rings like this with her name on it. Like most others, I got it stuck in clothing, destroyed expensive suits not to mention panty hose. I just can't afford to wear it! Sorry, back it goes! Beautiful ring,, address the production issues and I'll try again!
This is a stunning ring. The pink center stone is indeed pink--pale pink, but pink! The surrounding gems are absolutely bright and beautiful. The color story is one the artist arranged perfectly.
First Barbara Bixby Purchase
I received my pink ring about a week ago. At first I thought it was dull but then I realized it was the technique " oxidation " that was used in the making of the ring. I went back and looked at the picture and the ring is exactly as the picture shows. I discovered I do not like this technique and will stay away from it in the future. After I realized that the ring was suppose to look like this I felt better. I did use Jewelry cleaner to shine it up. I find that it is comfortable and I wear it a lot. I really like the style of the Barbara Bixby pieces. I am very happy that this ring was offered on easy pay (thank you QVC) This is a nice piece to start with. I rate this ring a 4 because it is rough in some places. I did know this going in because of some of the reviews. Thank you QVC for letting us the customers write honest and helpful reviews. I will be purchasing other Barbara Bixby pieces. I am looking at the vine and Leaf ring if it is offered on easy pay.
this ring is a beauty. I even bought the blue one. I wear them often.
I waited awhile to order to be able to afford this ring and was very sad at what I received. Cabochon was more of a milky white color and the accent stones were dull and not bright pink like on TV. I returned the ring.
