Barbara Bixby Sterling/18K Gemstone and Cultured Pearl Key Enhancer
All I can say is WOW! I waiting for this items since it first aired months ago, and it was worth the wait. The photo doesn't do it justice, the video is better. It's a large key and the stones just glow. Worth the money for sure!
Mine Is Beautiful
I'm so glad I stayed on waitlist and didn't cancel based on the reviews. My apatite stones are bright and deep electric blue, like the finest paraiba tourmaline. It is just perfect, very large key with so much detail. Love it Barbara!
Not a Keeper
I collect BB's keys as I find they are intriguing and artistic. This one looked so beautiful on tv. When I received mine I was totally disappointed. Not only was one of the beads missing but the entire key was black. The apatites were cracked as well. Sent back the very next day.
This is one big, bold key! Absolutely beautiful! I've seen Barbara's couture pieces and this is right up there with the best! The colors are vibrant and fascinating. The size is large, but not too big for my taste. Love the turquoise and the pink garnet together. Thank you, Barbara! I'm going to wear this for my daughter's wedding later this summer!
YEAH! NOW THAT'S A KEY!
This key is FABULOUS! What I love most is the size! All the gemstones were perfect. The detail... I can't explain it... it completely baffles me as to how a human can create something so exquisite. I couldn't even draw something like this and she draws it and turns it into a piece of art we can wear for all to see. I'm so jealous of Barbara's amazing talent. Please keep them coming... I love these large enhancers!
One of the Most Gorgeous Keys Ever!!
So many beautiful pieces Ms Bixby brought this visit, I knew right from the start this Key had to be mine. I have way to many pieces to count, there are pieces in my Bixby Collection that truely stand out above the rest, from both her Couture & QVC Collections...this Key is definately one of them.
It is beyond unique. A Key that would open a Temple Door in ancient times. A Key that is so special, it looks like a one of a kind.
Love Love Love this new direction Ms Bixby has taken with these rich fully saturated gemstones, intense, elaborately carved & detailed pieces that are not only gorgeous to look at & wear, but the meaning behind them- Talismans & Amulets with Spiritual Meaning
The Journey is so beautiful, I am so happy I am a part of it ; )
Be warned: this key is large and in charge. It is dazzling. Its also not cheap, but you knew that already. It fits perfectly into my wardrobe and lifestye, and the amount of detail is just mind-boggling. The garnets are juicy, radiant, nothing not to love there. The turquoise is flawless. With that said, I wish the apatites were sparkly, because mine are not and I feel that for this price, we deserve PERFECTION. I have other Bixby pieces with sparkly apatite, so I know its possible.... this is a minor quibble for me though, Gypsy is still a keeper. I have never really seen anything like it. Would love to see this in other colorways.... black onyx and citrine comes to mind.
The blue gemstones at the bottom had a white film covering them. Most likely what they use to polish the stones with. After wiping off the film, the stones are NOT polished. Very disappointed.
Beautiful but flaws
This enhancer is really beautiful. Unfortunately I received mine with the paisley bent back and of the 4 blue stones in the paisley, only one was clear and bright. The other 3 were very cloudy and dull even to the naked eye. Not just a little cloudy, alot. I tried to polish them with a micro fiber cloth and they still have no shine and are very dull. If there were more in stock I would send it right back but since there are not I'm still undecided about what to do. I love Barbara Bixby jewelery but this is not the first time I've received an item that was bent, right out of the box. This one slipped by quality control. Otherwise, I do love the enhancer.
