Barbara Bixby Sterling Black Sapphire Earring Drops is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanting these for a Long Time? I was so disappointed when I just received them. Not only were they so tiny, but at least they could have been round in size with the same design that was on the front to the back also. They are so pitiful of an earring and the price for them staggering. I am so surprised at BB how could she let them sell for that price when you can hardly see their workmanship nor the stone. Also back of earrings nothing, I have so many items from her and when I see something like this it is hard to believe such a great person would let these try and sell. Back they go! Produce some interesting earrings that are not going to kill you with the price but has detailed a some sophistication..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Add to textured link necklace for DRAMA!! First of all, I don’t even own the earrings these are supposed to go with. What I chose to use them for was a little extra enhancement to my necklace.... in what I think is a very creative way. — If you’re lucky enough to own the small oval connector links, these will be the PERFECT addition to your textured necklace! I prefer to wear mine with the flower facing inward, but I included a picture to show them both ways. — They are petite, & add just a little extra interest & drama! They were EXACTLY what I was looking for!! (I tried adding the ‘button flower charm’ to the links, but they kept flopping around & wouldn’t lay flat against my neck. I was so disappointed.... until I discovered these.) ** WOULD LOVE TO SEE THESE IN ADDITIONAL COLORS!! ** My favorite quote: *Life is too short to wear Boring Jewelry!*.... and it’s true!! Make your BB pieces your own!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely & versatile little keepers I have been wearing these drops for years now, and love them still. They are go-to earrings for me, going with anything black of course, but also suitable for work, play, and special evening occasions. I thought they were quite expensive at the time I bought them, but have come to appreciate sapphires that look beautiful with my black diamond necklace, or just right when worn with jeans & braided leather & other necklaces (also by Bixby). I have hunted around for similar drop sapphires in another color...no deal. I wear these on small Bixby hoops which came with the carved Buddha-head earrings sold by QVC years ago (there was also a lovely matching MOP Buddha head enhancer) or change to the tinier hoops which hold either garnet/iolite/peridot lotuses ( the same shape as these drops.) The only reason I would not gift them is they do not come with hoops...the recipient would have to figure that out. I do recommend these however if you have small BB hoops -- unusual, high quality and versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pretty for black sapphires These are a little pricey, for as small as they are, considering there was no earring hoop to go on (hence 4 stars instead of 5). Mine were very sparkley, nicely contrasting with the oxidized silver. I have a lot of John Hardy couture bracelets, and these have a very similar "vibe". I wear them on Honora black diamond hoops (see recommendation), where they look fabulous together! Even small JH sapphire earrings are above $400 in price, so if these drops were hung on a nice Bixby hoop and sold for under $240, I'd be happy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No sparkle The shape and size of the drops, very good. If you turn them perpendicular to the white topaz hoops they slide on easily. But there is no sparkle at all, nothing really to catch your eye. I don't see myself wearing them at all and am returning them, I understand the white topaz drops are much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful ... BUT These are lovely. However they won't fit on Barbara's sapphire and gemstone hoops due to the design. {J 267634} They would have been lovely drops for those earrings. I can wear w/ a Judith Ripka thin diamonique omega back hoop , but not much else, as the circle, on the drop, is too thin to go thru any other hoops I own. Please change this design.
