You will surely fall in love with this enticing array of perfectly faceted fine quality gemstone beads. Select your favorite hue from the exhaustive collection.
The surface of a faceted bead is covered with several geometrically arranged, flat surfaces, each known as a facet. The purpose of faceting is to bring out the brilliance of a gem; a method which shows the optical properties of the stone’s interior to its best advantage by maximizing reflected light which is perceived by the viewer as sparkle. The facets must be cut at the proper angles, which vary depending on the optical properties of the gem. If the angles are too steep or too shallow, the light will pass through and not be reflected back toward the viewer.
