Gorgeous stones, quick shipping!!
Mirror-like sparkle from expert faceting and sapphire does that. Colors show a lot of charcoal gray/blue not like pictured.
The beads I received are much darker than those in the photo. Also, the photo shows a variety of lights and darks, but they are all dark. And, for some reason, I have never enjoyed the fast shipping others rave about, except for once when the beads in my order cracked a lot and the replacement strand shipped out immediately. So, all in all, I'm a little disappointed, which is the equivalent of 3 stars.
