Barbara Bixby Sterling/18K Carved Turquoise KeyCharm
This is very nice and so well made. Looks great all the way around. The turquoise is fluted all the way around, too. Quite substantial and heavy for a charm. The bail is actually a large lobster claw clasp... the gold flower is the nob or lever that opens and closes it. Very cool. Love it!
THIS LIL KEY ARE SO SWEET.. PERFECT NEW CLASP THAT FIT ALL OF MY BARBARA BIXBY NECKLACES.. JUST LOVE IT..
Way better than it looks!
Despite from the Q photo, this little key looked a bit off, I went ahead and ordered it anyway. I am so glad that I did because it very different in person and much better than the photo!
Starting at the top - the bale is a nice large lobster claw type clasp, with a wide opening. The gold flower is a part of the opening mechanism that opens the bale. On to the turquoise stone - it is as blue as it can be, very pretty. It is round all the way around, and the carving of it is fabulous. Because it is round all the way around, this key is very 3D which is why the photos don't do it justice. The silver part of the key is round as well, as opposed to being flat like some other Bixby mini keys.
If you like Bixby keys in the mini sizes - you will likely enjoy this as much as I.
