Barbara Bixby Sterling Silver & 18K Gold Gemstone Flower Ring
I love this ring, and have not taken off since I received it. I like the heavy weight and detailed design. I ordered green BC it is my favorite color and this is my first Barbara piece I wish her items were more affordable and so glad I got this when it was a TSV.
Although her jewelry can be pricey and even in my opinion gaudy at times, this ring is gorgeous....I cant stop wearing it since I received it. It has such an antique look to it, simply beautiful. I highly recommend this piece. I chose garnet.
I was waitlisted to receive this ring since February 1 when it was a TSV and it finally arrived in mid April. Much to my very pleasant surprise the wait was well worth it!! This is a beautiful ring and beautifully made. I haven't been so pleased with a ring in a very long time. The inside is finished and the silver work inside is as beautiful as the outside design. I can't believe that such a nice piece was so reasonably priced. Thank you Barbara Bixby for your design and workmanship and thank you QVC. I just love this ring.
Better in person
This ring gets so many compliments. I purchased the garnet choice and it is stunning. I wear it more than I imagined since it is so comfortable and versatile. I believe the price was fabulous considering all the workmanship.
Oh My Goodness
I have been waiting for my backorder for what seems like eternity but ut arrived today and all I can say is WOW!!!! The design is absoolutely gorgeous and the ring is heavier than I thought but I can deal with that. Mshowed but that just may be the stoney only draw back is the stone is lighter than the photo but it could be the peridot stone. My friend wants one but all sold out.
large and heavy ring, a good value
I was surprised at how large this ring was when it arrived. I ordered the Peridot and although I wear peridot year round, this looked like spring. It took several days for me to decide to keep it. I contemplated giving it to a friend. It is the most substantial (in size) ring I own. It is beautiful and it does look like a sculpted piece of artwork. When I finally wore it, I wore it on my right hand as that ring finger is slightly larger and the ring fits well there. However, that is also my writing hand and I felt encumbered by its size and weight. This is not the fault of the ring. The ring is stunning, just very large. I now wear it on my left hand where it is a little loose but not so loose that it will come off. This is probably hard to picture but I have painted my nails the same peridot green and it looks really good.
WOW - did I ever luck out on this piece. Iolite isn't easy to find and this piece is stunning. Not to mention that I got a great price! Thanks to the Q and BB.
I found that this ring was too wide and too thick for my finger. It's very pretty and nicely made but it was not comfortable on my hand.
Wow! It's Gorgeous and Special!
I love this ring, and the quality is wonderful. The stones are nice,
and the ring is well balanced. The gold is fabulous as well. The
TSV was a true value at the price point presented. I would love
red as well. The Iolite stones are a nice choice for something
What Can I Say????
I've had this ring for several months now in the garnet and have been trying to find the time to get this review written. Now that I have a few seconds....
I am a huge fan of BB's work; but was blown away by the beauty of this piece for the price. I've had plenty of chances to wear it and every time I do, I'm flooded with compliments, most from complete strangers. They all assume it's an antique estate piece. I tell those who ask that it's by a fabulous modern designer.
I love the detail, the weight, everything about this ring. Every time I wear it, I notice something I hadn't detected before. I would have ended up with crossed eyes trying to design something with such an incredible variety of detail. The height off the finger is perfect and that's where the presence lies in my opinion.
The garnets definitely have the color of rhodolite garnets and,together are just the perfect size for the design.
Have been buying BB's pieces since she first came to QVC; and I can almost guarantee we'll never see the likes of this piece at this price again. Now I wish I'd bought all the colors. That's one of those "woulda, shoulda, coulda" moments we all manage to trip over. What a treat it would be to be able to go back and purchase another color or two for the same price.
Barbara, words are insufficient to describe the beauty of your work.
Love, Love, Love, Love!
I chose this ring in the beautiful Peridot because it's my son's Birthstone! This ring is fabulous! I wear it everyday! It's extremely comfortable! The beautiful shade of Peridot, the 18k flowers, the amazing details of the ring, and the price was simply amazing! It's beautiful!
I was on waitlist for this ring when it was a TSV. I got the iolite choice. I was a little worried by reading other reviews about the size of the ring. I ordered the size I usually wear, which fit perfectly. Yes, it is a bigger ring than I would normally wear, but it is absolutely stunning! Some people have been unhappy about the clarity of their stones and the oxidation. Luckily, mine was perfect!
I went back to QVC to look at the charm and the earrings, but they are too pricey, so I decided not to order. It would be pretty to order the charm in different colors to put on a chain.
