A Note from the Designer

"This scarab charm reminds me of rebirth and springtime. I've overlaid crystal on turquoise to amplify the energy of both stones. Turquoise is thought to be the most ancient stone used for adorning the body, with beads found dating back to 5000 BC. It's believed to teach wisdom, happiness, compassion, and forgiveness."

—Barbara Bixby

Barbara Bixby Sterling Gemstone Scarab Charm, 18K is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pictures Dont Show The Dimension And Detail I ordered this to see what all the fuss was about. This is gorgeous. The citrine stones really sparkle in contrast to the turquoise doublet. And the shape lends itself to many different combinations if you like to play like I do. Right now I've got it on the market chain with the turquoise key charm. I wish QVC did a small presentation of a bunch of charms together more often. I really like to watch the videos. But I took a chance and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, symbolic, and heirloom quality! PERFECT!! *******A NOTE RE SIZING...Before ordering, it is best to READ the measurements and refer to a ruler to see if the size works for you. I for one very much appreciate QVC taking the time to give us the details. Also, THE SIZE GIVEN WILL INCLUDE THE BAIL. One reviewer said the measurement was wrong. The measurement IS CORRECT. The charm measures exactly 1 1/4 inches, including the bail.+++++The craftsmanship, the gemstone quality, the materials used, and the spectacular design in this charm/pendant are remarkable. The ethereal true blue turquoise crowned with rock crystal and the rich golden gemstones make an enchanting combination. The gemstone color and the 18k flower allow wear with your gold as well as sterling. This glorious little guy has an elegance about him, and the graceful flow of design adds to the magic, captivating the onlooker. For those of us who love the fascinating creatures of the earth, this is a must have. They remind us of the delicate balance of nature and, hopefully, inspire the passion to do good to protect the earth's treasures when the moment presents itself. This wonderful pendant is beautiful, symbolic, and inspiring. Love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 1/4 inch smaller than stated It looks better online than in real life for two reasons: 1) the blue is very light, almost like baby blue, not the rich saturated blue shown on the stock photo; It almost gives a plastic feel. 2) From the tip to the bottom, it is slightly less than an inch (from the tip of the front legs to the tip of tail), not 1 1/4 inch as stated online. It's still a well made well designed pendant, but feel it is way overpriced for what it is. Hope QVC gives us more accurate measurement and a photo that reflects the real color better. For your reference, I bought two and both of them are of the same light blue. I though I would keep one and use another as gift, but now I will probably just keep on for myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Tiny To Make A Statement For Me! Workmanship is beautiful, however I really didn't expect the charm to be as small as it is! I wish Ms. Bixby would design a larger version of this lovely piece, which would be more of a statement piece, like her wonderful Grass Hopper! I would buy it in a heart beat! Unfortunately for me this little guy is just "Too Tiny!".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect WOW - he is now hanging from my BB bronze cord with a couple other of her charms. Another BB hit - when will she be back on the Q? Now, I must get the scarab cuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh wow! He just arrived and I adore him. Went to my computer to write a review to find him sold out. I'm so lucky I got one...ABSOLUTELY AMAZING DETAIL...I didn't realize the turquoise was done in doublet with clear quartz over, but it gives an ethereal look in true turquoise color that I love. The citrines are oh so sparkly and of perfect color. This guy doesn't have an enhancer bale, so you'll need a circle connector. Oh, I'm so lucky to have received this before they were sold out. Barbara did not disappoint...what's new? RECOMMEND!
