These are beautiful. The color is exceptional.
The faceting picks up the light and makes the colors more intense and saturated, like gumdrops. But these will work far better in your designs than gumdrops would!
I've been playing around with them in various designs, but I may end up going the simple route and string them with some spacers for a simple, but eye catching necklace and bracelet set.
Pricey, but a really great deal when they are on special. Get 'em when you can!
