A Note from the Designer

"The lotus is one of my favorite symbols, and I love interpreting this beautiful flower in my art. In this piece, I chose a partially open lotus flower, representing our minds partially closed. The unfolding petals symbolize our freedom from preconceived notions and the material world. The bud of the lotus is a green mother-of-pearl layered under clear quartz. This bud represents the soul's readiness to evolve, and green is the color of abundance and growth."

—Barbara Bixby

Symbolic style. A faceted, pear-shaped green triplet is the first thing that catches your eye on these detailed lotus earrings. Prong-set iolite and 18K yellow gold create a pod shape above the triplet, while white topaz and an 18K yellow gold leaf glimmer on the shepherd's hooks. From Barbara Bixby.

Barbara Bixby Sterling & 18K Multi-Gemstone Lotus Earrings is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Barbara Bixby Lotus Earrings I wanted to like these. I've been thinking about buying these for a year or more. They are pretty but the problem is in the product quality. These came with rubber back stops to wear on the french hook so you won't loose them. One of these was pretty tight and in trying to get it back on the hook the silver metal hook actually bent!...!! I was able to fix it but these are very expensive earrings. No way should this happen with earrings over 500.00. If these had been 200 or maybe 250?... maybe. Slept on this for overnight trying to make up my mind. Just not a 500.00 dollar value. One other issue is that the Lotus stone was smaller than I thought. So Monday these will be going back to QVC

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I Hoped For I've coveted these earrings for nearly 2 years. Finally 'justified' the cost just 'cuz I'm worth it'. These earrings are truly stunning. Elegant yet understated. The detailed workmanship is very impressive. I'd wear these for dress up or dress down. I simply love them. If you are on the fence and know you deserve something special, get these earrings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Catching Gorgeous! I waited a long time for this pair of earrings from the wait list, and it was well worth it. The price is justified because it is very high quality and beautiful on the ears. Not heavy, and for the first time my newly short hair has a complimentary pair of earrings to go with it that I love showing them off. I am a new fan to Barbara Bixby's line and can't wait for her shows! No one will regret this investment if you are on the fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite I have many BB pieces, I don't believe I've ever returned anything I've purchased from her designs. These earrings are not inexpensive, but truly compliment the Grasshopper Enhancer, very special pieces each in their own right. Value pay made it easier to enjoy a slightly indulgent purchase. These are substantial but not too heavy, pretty french wire design accented with white topaz and the 18k leaves create a feminine design. Also, these are beautifully executed front and back. Iolites are a nice shade of purple blue.
