Barbara Bixby Cultured Freshwater Pearl Strand is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, creative add on The combination of black pearls with rhodolites have become a trademark of BB,beautiful color selection. This piece, although it can't be used by itself, with a connector you can use it as an ankle bracelet. Or if you get two pieces , you can turn them into an 18" necklace using two connectors. You can even change the piece into a set of earrings taking it to your jeweler to make the proper changes. Your imagination is the limit. I love to have pieces like this one, which are a challenge to my creativity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes the TSV Even Better I love this add on to the TSV necklace. It creates the cutest bib necklace. The pearls are a beautiful black peacock color and the pave garnet stations are really pretty. The only reason this didn't earn 5 stars was because of price. It is on the expensive side for an add on that can't stand alone. I love to wear it with my TSV eastern necklace.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from where's the garnets? I did not even know this piece was supposed to have garnets. Unlike the other reviewer i liked the organic style of the pearls and the fact that they were hand knotted in between. To me they don't resemble coin pearls at all. However my silver beads on each side do not have any garnets. Didn't know they were supposed to when I tried it on with the necklace. They are just beautiful carved silver bead stations with flowers in the middle of the bead all around. No stones?! I was all set to keep them. Now I have to rethink the value. But I think I will because it is gorgeous with the necklace and will look beautiful with some keshi black pearls that I have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass this add-on, wait for the next. o The strand is knotted so tightly, it wraps around in jagged lines, in and out, back and forth, and won't lay straight. o The pearls are little flat triangles with misshapen bulbs on the sides and tops. They are all triangular, and flat, to the point where I thought they were messed up coin pearls. I don't understand them, and they are ugly to the nth degree. I don't like triangular pearls - especially ones that are flat. o The pearls are all different colors. Purple-peacock, blue-peacock, green-peacock, Ok peacock is peacock, but these are horribly mismatched, and no two are alike. o The rhodolite garnet pave beads are pretty but so tiny, you have to be really close up to see them for what they are. o The price is $240. This strand is worth much less than half of that amount. I am a Bixby collector with dozens of pieces. This one isn't worth your time or consideration. Ordinarily I am a 5-star enthused advocate, but this piece is dismal. Wait for the next add-on.
