Barbara Bixby Sterling Silver 18K & Gemstone Dolphin Enhancer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicate, Lovely, Expressive! This BB piece is more subtle than most of her pieces, but is no less beautiful for it. Love the swirls of silver and the swirls of deep London blue topaz representing the water. Love the silver beadwork on the outer edge on one side that represent the bubbles of water that are frequently present in water. Love the lighter blue stone, because we all know that water comes in many shades of blue. Love the exquisitely carved dolphin in MOP with small gold accents, and cupped lovingly in sterling silver. Even though this is a static piece of metal and gemstone, you can still feel the movement of the dolphin through the water, and he is having a lot of fun!! BTW, I am very light skinned, and I love this piece next to my skin, so don't let light skin keep you from at least trying this piece!! Also, the reason I checked the box that I would not recommend this to a friend is that everyone I know would not be willing to pay what this piece costs, even though I personally think it is worth every penny. However, if they received it as a gift, they wouldn't know what it cost, and would probably love it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I like the graceful shape of this enhancer, but the colors were so pale it didn't stand out against my skin. Maybe it would look better on someone who isn't as fair as I am. The dark blue accent is so narrow it was almost invisible. It did not look worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous! I love this pendent so much. Very detailed, and it is not big and gaudy, perfect size. It is a stunning piece and the perfect pendent for us gals who live near the Atlantic Ocean or Chesapeake Bay watching for dolphins at play. So glad this was on easy pay and I had the opportunity to purchase it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful but returning mine I agree with the other reviews, this piece is beautifully executed and so I'm giving 5 stars. When I received mine I felt it was difficult to make out the blue topaz stones, although they appear very bright in the video. I kept putting it on different necklaces with different-sized circle connectors, but as another reviewer stated it just did not "wow" me. I struggled to justify keeping it and finally decided to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fun piece I purchased this special piece when it first came out and think it is so playful and fun! I will be taking mine when I go on vacation to Florida. I hope everyone who is on waitlist will be able to get one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A BIT TINY I have always loved Barbara Bixby's pieces and I do love this dolphin pendant; but just disappointed that it could have been a bit bigger. I had to use my magnifying glass to actually see the details, and I had hoped the calcendony a bit deeper in color and the blue London stones a bit more showy. I bought the evil eye piece and the amathest fell out 2 months later by just wearing it. I didn't even know when it fell. I noticed when taking off my jewelry for the night. I had to pay extra 65.00 more to have it replaced......quite a bit expensive; so I hope I do not lose my calcendony the same way AFTER THE GUANANTEE IS EXPIRED. I will keep this piece; lovely, but a bit tiny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty in Motion - a Masterpiece!!! I love the little art pieces that Barbara brings to us in tribute to the glorious creatures in nature. This is a beautiful rendition of the dolphin, with amazing detail and fine sculpting. The size is perfect, and the addition of 18k gold makes it wearable with gold or silver. The pendant feels sturdy, and the gemstones are top quality and well matched. (If the drop at the bottom seems 'dusty', just wipe gently and it will clear.) The mother of pearl adds a luminous quality to the figure, even a slight sense of movement. This little beauty will be a pleasant reminder of the delicate balance of nature, doing our part in preserving and protecting what we can, and a reminder to appreciate the good things that enter our path. (The only thing I would change with this and other enhancers is the clip portion of the enhancer. They are often hard to open and I never feel comfortable with enhancers - fearing they will open and be lost - unless they are PUSH SPRING operated. Please, Barbara, consider this.)
