These strands of genuine Garnet beads have:
Quantity: About 50+ beads (one 8″ strand)
Shape: Faceted button rondelle shape
Size: approx 7mm
Quality: I’m going to call this garnet about an AA. The cut is really pretty good, although there is some variability in thickness (as you can see in the image), these are nice and thick so you can actually see the stone (i.e. not just a chippy sliver kind of thing). These beads look beautiful, the color is rich and deep. Granted the size is great (a solid 7mm), and although they can look a bit dark, but when you take another look you can see what a beautiful deep red they are. The cut initially looks a bit broad, until you look closer & see that they are actually nicely faceted.
The beads in the image are the beads you will receive.
