Barbara Bixby Sterling & 18K Leather & Gem Butterfly 17" Necklace is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Delicate Detail, Little Sparkle, endcap defective The detail work is beautiful and I hated that I felt compelled to return the necklace I received. I didn't ask for replacement as it's on clearance and stock seems to bounce in and out randomly, so I'm wondering if it's a few odd/off pieces coming in and out now. My particular piece, the stones did not have much sparkle and were not noticeable. They got lost in the pendant. I was still entertaining keeping it though.. Until I tried to pair the leather cord necklace with a little bit larger clasp ring. The two that come with it are tiny but have extra room within the end caps and the presentation stated it was interchangeable. The end cap on one end accommodated the slightly larger clasp ring just fine with room to move. The end cap on the other end of the necklace was defective and not shaped correctly to accommodate a ring clasp any larger than the one it came with, the other ring would not fit through it at all. Sadly, with the two factors, I had to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Little Garden On Your Neck This piece is beautiful and very well done. It is a bit smaller than I expected but still worthy of 5 stars. Also lays nicely on the neck. It is 17 in., I usually wear 18 in. but it works fine on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and Beautiful This is a VERY pretty and sculptural piece of jewelry. It's very three dimensional. I had my eye on it for months before I invested in purchasing it. It did not disappoint me when I finally got it into my hands. It's very feminine, while anchoring it to the braided leather cord makes it a bit trendy, youthful and casual. You can see that the gem stones were carefully selected for their appropriately rich color. Likewise, the cleanliness of the pearl was very apparent. It also lays correctly on my neck when I wear it. And when I do wear it, I always choose to show it off by wearing solid, simple tops. I don't want anything I wear drawing a viewer's eye away from this stunning piece of art, I am now fortunate enough to own and enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butterflies at play... This necklace is beautiful. Each butterfly has a different color of topaz (London and Swiss blue) edging the wings. The rhodolite garnet really stands out against the other colors. The lilac Pearl is the perfect size, framing this lovely garden scene. It amazes me that people can create such perfect pieces. I really like that I can change the necklace out for pearls or any of the sterling BB necklaces that I already have. Happy customer here, again....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intricately detailed and lovely Just love the garden designs from Barbara Bixby. This is beautifully done. Intricate but solid quality piece and the leather next to butterflies and flowers is a artful juxtaposition. Also have lilac pearl strand to switch out which makes for a completely different look. Ultra-feminine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butterfly Beauty I love this necklace from Barbara Bixby; the intricate craftsmanship, beautiful gemstones and lovely design combine to create a one-of-a-kind necklace that you can wear with anything, and change up using different Barbara Bixby 17 to 19 inch necklaces. My faves are the 19" lilac pearl & 17" black pearl necklaces. I'm not a big fan of the brown leather piece that comes with this beautiful necklace, but will wear it on occasion. Butterflies were my mom's favorite so this necklace will forever remind me of her. Must have!
