Barbara Bixby Sterling/18K 1.25 cttw Pave' BrazilianGarnet Lotus Cuff
A Stunning Work of Art
This is what I call a work of art on the wrist. You simply cannot make a bad Bixby purchase. A stunning work of art!!!
This is a 5 star design but a 1 star in quality. I absolutely love the bracelet, but to my disappointment, one of the stones fell out and I had to return it. This is the second time this happened to me. Her designs are so beautiful, but I can't trust myself to buy another piece if the stones fall out or breaks off. I'm heart broken.
My first Barbara Bixby purchase. The design certainly appeals to me, read all reviews. She sells a lot of goods here. I Tried twice. First one sent had a clearly defective hinge, just hung off cuff. Ridiculous.
Second one arrived with missing pave stones, and cuff was oddly bent. As much as I hoped it would work, clearly something is terribly wrong. The whole thing ended up a HUGE disappointment. Have much better things to spend THAT much money on, even at a discount its way too much money for me to throw away.
If there were less stars to give, in the rating system it is where I would rate the item.
I purchased this to wear with other Bixby pieces that have pave garnets. The design is nice...the petal detail & the gold lotus...unfortunately the execution is a bit flawed. When I received the average sized I ordered, I was disappointed with the weight & size. I was expecting a more substantial cuff. I'd consider this a bit delicate. I also thought it ran small compared to other Bixby cuffs I own. I'd planned to return it but my sister tried it on and fell in love. After seeing it on her a few times over the next month or so, I decided to reorder but chose the large instead for a little more drape. When I received it, it was not only a customer return in noticeably used condition, there were 4 pave stones missing, all in a row. How this made it past any quality control is beyond me. Going back and I'm done. Didn't love it in the first place so going with my gut. Plenty of other wonderful Bixby to choose from!
This bracelet is one of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry I've ever owned. I love everything about it--the color and sparkle of the stones, the wonderful texture and pattern of the sides... The small size fit my 6" wrist perfectly, but had a slight problem with the hinge (I fixed it). The average size didn't seem all that much bigger, so I bent the silver ends *EVER* so slightly to make it fit perfectly. Thanks to the clearance price and a couple of birthday gifts, I was able to keep both (!!!). They're beautiful individually, but I really love two of them stacked. My advice: Grab this at the clearance price before it's completely gone! It will make you SO happy.
I love this cuff and I can wear it everyday, it can be casual or dressy. I have a 5-3/4" wrist and the small is a little big, but it doesn't bother me, it's a keeper. Now I want the sister bracelet to stack, it will be gorgeous!
This bracelet is beautiful! I ordered a small and it fits well. The bracelet is round, but I would have prefered an oval shape for an even better fit. I purchased as a companion piece to the OM bracelet and they compliment each other well with similar colors and the lotus flower details. A beauty.
I simply love this gorgeous cuff by a wonderful and exceptional designer. I love the detail, the weight, and the beautifully designed cuff along with those very special stones. I have an average wrist and I ordered the average. The cuff does not turn on me and the design remains upwards on my wrist. I have wanted this cuff for a long time and was so thrilled to see it on easy pay. With easy pay I can afford to purchase these creative, lovely pieces of art. Thanks so much!
This is a true value and worth every cent
I love this bracelet. I ordered a small and it fits perfectly. The bracelet does not move at all on my 6 inch wrist. The brazilian garnets sparkle like crazy I will be wearing this a lot this fall. I love all the detal work that this cuff has. If your size is available, order it , you will not be disappointed.
LOVE THIS CUFF!!!
The cuff is extraordinary. There appears to be sizing issues with some. I ordered an average. It was somewhat larger than I would like, so as I had it on my arm, I slowly and cautiously squeezed it to fit, and it is PERFECT now!! I wish I had done that much earlier, as it fell off twice (while I was in my house) anyway, was nearly thinking of returning it because I was afraid of losing 200.00 + bucks just wherever. Since squeezing it to fit, it is the perfect fit. Ladies try the same, I think you will be much satisifed. I was so close to returning it, and I am SO glad I did not. I have worn it everyday since it now fits correctly, and there have been no problems at all. I adore the Lotus petels on the sides. That just makes the bracelet for me. The brushed silver is really nice and couture looking. I love the oversized gold lotus flower and the brazillian garnets are just beautiful! I could have easily spent 200.00 one day at the mall for a little of this and that and end up with "just stuff". I have a masterpiece here, and it appears as though it may not be offered much longer. I am sooooo glad I squeezed it to fit!!!!!
This is a truly beautiful bracelet - LOVE everything about the design. However, I ordered an Average (all that was left at the clearance price) and it it just too big on my 6-1/2" wrist. Sadly, I will be returning it. Cuffs were not meant to fit like bangles and it just keeps turning on my wrist, so that the beautiful garnets are facing down. I did manage to get on waitlist for a Small, so I am hoping that comes through - and that once it does, it is actually smaller. Boo hoo - hate to give it up.
WHILE THIS IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL DESIGN, THE SMALL WHICH I ORDERED IS STILL TOO LARGE, TURNS ON MY WRIST, AS OTHERS HAVE NOTED. ALSO, THE BLACK RHODIUM UNDER THE GARNET STONES CAUSES THEM TO APPEAR MORE PURPLE THAN THE LOVELY PINK THAT IS IN MY VINE AND LEAF RING. I WAS HOPING FOR A BETTER MATCH, HOWEVER, THE SIZING WAS THE DECIDING FACTOR IN MY CHOICE TO RETURN IT. SO SAD. I LOVE BARBARA'S DESIGNS, AND CAN ONLY AFFORD THEM WHEN THEY ARE ON EASY PAY, WHICH HAPPENS TOO SELDOM WITH HER PIECES. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO A FRIEND ONLY IF I KNEW HER WRIST SIZE AND TASTE. PS: THE SILVER BAND DESIGN IS GORGEOUS ALSO...BEAUTIFUL WORKMANSHIP.
