These strands of faceted Garnet beads have:
Quantity: About 181+ beads (one 13″ strand)
Shape: Faceted button rondelle shape
Quality: I’m going to call these faceted garnet beads about an A. These are a step above the average strand, although I will admit, they are not the spectacular, unbelievable outrageous kind I prefer. At the same time, they do have a great juicy color that isn’t too dark (because often garnet can get too dark so you can’t see it’s beautiful red color), and the faceting is twinkling & lovely.
What I don’t like about them is that they are not even in width. To impress me a rondelle needs to be almost like a wheel with great faceting on the side and a consistent thickness of the stones on the strand. So for stone quality & faceting they get very high marks, but the thickness could be more consistent (see image for details).
The beads in the image are the beads you will receive.
