If all you want out of this product is a red beaded necklace, you'll be happy with your purchase! However, I bought it because I wanted a carnelian piece in my collection of unusual gemstone jewelry, and this is NOT real carnelian. It's really easy to spot the fake stuff: real carnelian is rusty-red with cloudy patches but NO stripes, while fake carnelian (dyed and heat-treated agate) has striping. I should've known that a $30 carnelian necklace of this size was too good to be true, because natural carnelian is becoming very rare. Oh well. If I had known that this was made of common-as-dirt agate I only would've paid half of the price, but I'll still be keeping it because it IS a pretty necklace and I get lots of compliments when I wear it.
These beads, although not all solid in color, are of a sufficently pleasing color and size to be used with all sorts of attire. A better scale of beads would be a good idea so one could judge accurately what one was purchasing. Price great.......................Really like them
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Color a little off, there are striations of light tan in the beads, but color is generallly soft pleasant cimmamon
- How accurate was the sizing? quite accurate, which better scale info was given on bead size, converting mm to inches never quite adds up
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quite nice
I ordered necklace and was sent a red necklace with faceted beads, which did not match the product photo that clearly shows round smooth beads. I sent it back for an exchange, and got another necklace with faceted beads AND wasn't even red! It was mostly brownish-yellow and had a few yellowish beads! This is a huge departure from my other purchases from this company, which have all met or exceeded my expectations.

The beads on the necklace *I* received were carved: the light just plays on them. The image is of rounds beads. Lovely! Now looking for other colors in this length.

The color was more orange than I expected, but after looking closely at the picture on the website again after receiving it, the color is accurately represented. Still a beautiful necklace, with strong construction, nicely knotted in between, relatively consistent color throughout.

Large round, individually knotted crimson colored beads look like glass, but heavier than expected. A simple, yet eye-catching piece that you can build an outfit on. Love the length and size of the beads. Might be too heavy for some. Not uncomfortable, but you certainly can't feel that you're wearing it. Now to find matching earrings...
This necklace looks very good on your neck. It definitely looks very high quality and is adjustable. This necklace goes well with nautical colors. I think it looks like it is much more expensive than $31. Don't hesitate to buy this one.
