What's the drill size and conditions for your beads?

  • Most of our beads have the standard 1mm drill hole with the exceptions of micro-cut beads smaller than 4mm. Please allow +-.2mm difference. All of our pearl strands come with the standard .75mm drill. Please notice we can't guarantee the drill size for our beads. The size is only for reference only.
  • Simply put, it's impossible to make perfect beads out of natural stones. Please expect imperfections and color/size variations. This is just the nature of the bead industry. Please examine your purchase carefully before you cut/use them as we don't accept returns for cut/altered items.


What's the size of your beads?

Bead sizes are approximate and may have a variation of +/- 0.5mm for round beads.
