J266240 - Barbara Bixby Sterling/18K Onyx Gemstone Heart Overlay Ring
Bold, Breathtaking and Beautiful!
This is my first BB purchase. I was looking for something that was distinctive. As I stated in my review title, this ring combines the 3 elements that I was looking for--bold, breathtaking and beautiful. A very good purchase that I am very pleased with. Highly recommended!
I love this ring! What a statement it makes. The ring is very large ,so not for the faint of heart. The ring looks very expensive and I would highly recommend it.
This is my second Barbara Bixby purchase. I am happy to say that I love this ring. I would call this ring stunning. When I first opened the package the ring looked larger than what I expected, but after putting it on I realized that the design of the ring is a lot to take in. It is a large ring but no larger than it appears on TV and in the picture. This ring is truly a piece of art. The Brazilian Apatite in the center is absolutely beautiful. Though the center is small the clarity and the sparkle of the Brazilian Apatite set in the gold is absolutely gorgeous. The ring is comfortable. Thanks to easy pay I was able to purchase this ring. (Thanks again QVC) I give this ring a 5.
Breathtaking, beautiful....just like Barbara
Had to write a review on this ring. I received it today and ripped the postage pack and gingerly opened the boxx.....I was thinking, "will I love this....I hope so."
Well there it was.....eased on to my finger like a dream....How I love it. I will wear this every day.
The size is perfect for me. Hope more large rings continue to come to life through you Barbara. Thank You Thank you
Over the Moon Gorgeous!!
This is one of the most striking rings Barbara has ever done (and she has done some fabulous rings!) The large heart-shaped onyx is overlaid with the most brilliant white topaz and dreamy neon apatite, capped with that gorgeous teal shade of pearl. What's not to love?? Yes, it's a big ring and definitely not for the faint of heart, but having said that this ring is TDF for those who, like me, love the stones in the ring and adore the heart motif in jewelry. This was a MUST for me and I too feared it was too large for my hand, but I sized it for my middle finger as this is definitely a middle finger/pointer finger ring. For those not fearful of the size, go for it! Mine does not turn on my finger and is not uncomfortable, although I don't wear a middle finger ring every day. No regrets on getting this beauty!!
BEAUTIFUL BUT TO LARGE
I WAS HOPING TO LOVE THIS RING.. AND I DO LIKE BIG RINGS.. AND I LOVE BARBARAS JEWELRY.. THIS RING IS NOT BIG THIS RING IS HUGE!! ALSO THE TEAL BLUE STONES ARE LIL TO SMALL FOR THE RING ITSELF.. AND GOLD IS BARELY THERE.. ITS LIKE A GOLD FOIL THAT WAS SO THIN AND WRAPPED AROUND.. MY RING EVEN HAVE DAMAGE ON A GOLD WHEN IT WAS SET... SO FOR ALL THIS REASONS I HAVE TO SEND IT BACK..
WAY TO BIG
I WAS EXCITED TO GET MY RING, BUT UPON OPENING IT AND PUTTING IS ON THE RING IS WAY TO BIG AND HEAVY. THE RING DOES NOT STAY CENTERED ON YOUR HAND KEEPS SLIPPING TO THE SIDE. NEED LESS TO SAY I SENT IT BACK.
My Everday Ring of Rings
I have worn this ring just about everyday since receiving it. I ordered a size eight for my right hand ring finger. I confess that I was a little bit apprehensive when ordering it as I am a teacher and I constantly use my hands and I knew the ring was substantial from the reviews. Well, the comfort of this ring on a working hand proved amazing. It does not get in the way and it does not feel clunky like many similar size rings of lesser quality. I know that this has everything to do with BB's genius design and the ring's exquisite quality. So if you're thinking of buying this ring, keep in mind that though it is a statement size ring it can be worn every day.
Barry has sister, BB
I love big and bold jewelry. Another signature piece.This Barbara Bixy ring is on my left hand and Barry Cord Large doubloon ring is on my right hand. I am 4 feet 10 inches, and I wear it well. With a big and bold ring that's all you need on each hand. The weight is substantial, I don't like wimpy jewelry. Thanks ladies for your reviews , it helped in my decision to order. I was not disppointed. My Barry Cord jewelry now has a sister. Since this is my frist BB ring I hope her quality on all her her jewelry is as excellant as this ring.
Royal and Elegant and RocknRoll
I received mine about a week ago, and find myself wearing it every single day. I have about 20 Bixby rings but always reach for this one. I wear it on my middle finger. It is not as big as QVC says!! It's about 1 1/4 inches. It has a low dome profile and is very well balanced, so it doesn't flop around - it sits up straight. It has some weight to it, so you do know it's there, but never intrusive. This ring is STUNNING. The blue stones are a painter's ultramarine blue - which is to say, a deep blue carribean ocean blue, and they are mesmerizing. Paired up with the intricate silver, and shiny onyx, the ring just takes everyone's breath away. My pearl is slightly irregular and not perfectly round. At first I was frowning over this, but then realized, the pearl is a bit flattened making it even more ideal for the shape. I am good with it being slightly irregular, it's sort of personal that way. I adore this ring and see that is is going to become my personal signature piece. That's good because I dislike negativity and the onyx will repel that away from me. In sum, it's my most favorite of all Bixby products.
Better as a pendant?
This is a stunning design but it is very big. I love big rings but this one is very heavy. I think it is far more suited for a pendant and I think I may take it to my jeweler to see if that can be done. This would make a stunning pendant! I also noticed little globs of white under the heart around the sides of the ring. It looks as though it wasn't "cleaned up" after it was made. Again, though, this is a beautiful design.
Work Of Art
Barbara Bixby has a very special talent. She puts her heart and soul into every piece of art she creates. I could never refer to her pieces as just jewelry....It is art!! I wear this ring and feel like royalty. It is solid and very well made. So much detail in her pieces. And with every piece she puts in so much meaning to every stone and design. I highly recommend any of her designs.
