High-quality, earth-mined opaque rubies are calibrated for size and laser drilled to create rondelle strands that lie smoothly along your neck and collar bone and sparkle like mad. They measure precisely 3mm and you will receive a 6-inch strand. Drills take 24 gauge wire.
I'll continue to stock hand-cut rondelles as well as these calibrated ones, so you'll have a choice of which you want to use for your projects. Traditionally-cut rondelles contribute to the hand-made look I value, so there will always be a place for them in my studio, and now I also have calibrated rondelles with blazing facets to use as I wish.
As I am able to get them, I will add more of these wonders to my inventory. Right now, here is what I have:
Important note: Stones have been photographed close up to show detail; thus they appear larger than actual size. Please refer to the size given in the title of the listing and see Photos 1 and 4 which show the size of these beads in relation to a dime. Mannequin is not life-size.
No matter how many items you buy, shipping is a flat rate. Further, your purchase will be insured at no additional cost to you.
I have a no-questions-asked return policy and the transaction will be complete only when you are happy with your purchase.
Shopping online gives you access to an endless variety of gemstones with the downside that you cannot hold the stones in your hand to judge their quality and color. I do my best to accurately portray my offerings in descriptions and photos, but you can shop here knowing that if anything you buy here is a disappointment, you can return it and I will pay shipping costs
