This strand of Flower Garnet Beads has:
Quantity: Fourteen (14) piece set (about 7″ strand)
Shape: Faceted flower drop briolette shape
Quality: I love these faceted Flower Garnet Beads, and for quality, I’m going to give them a mixed B+ grade. These stones are mixed in quality, the color is a deep, pure blood red (as opposed to a more pink red that we often find in a rhodolite garnet), it’s not even a brick, it’s just red. The cut is not perfect (as some I’ve had in the past we’re) I but they are ok. (see image, I tried to get a close up of the worst of it). At the same time, there are a few issues there & there – there is one stone that stinks on the strand. I would expect to see a wonky drill hole, simply because that is what happens with hand cut stones, although I don’t see anything that screams out “trouble.” Overall a good strand with a unique cut, & good color.
The beads in the image are the beads you’ll receive.
