Description

Genuine tiny faceted black diamond bead. Jet black colouring and extremely flashy and sparkly, as you would expect from a diamond. There may be very slight pitting on the bead - this is absolutely normal, and to be expected, from any black diamond bead. The drill hole is very small. You may be able to use a 28 gauge (0.3mm) with some of the larger beads however we recommend a 30 gauge (0.25mm) wire.

Please note: these are not rough uncut diamond chips, but diamonds which have been individually cut, polished and faceted into beads.

  • Treatment: Irradiated
  • Priced per piece

About Our Beads

As a general rule, small gem-quality drilled stones will have small drill holes sizes. A 26 gauge (0.4mm) or 28 gauge (0.3mm) wire should fit most stones (we sell a range of suitable wires) although some beads, particularly commercial quality round beads, will have larger holes. We recommend using soft wire when wire wrapping to avoid the risk of breakages and particular care should be taken when working with delicate/brittle stones (eg apatite).

Strands of gemstone beads occur in many different qualities. There is no officially recognised grading system for beads so we use the following identifiers to better assist our customers when choosing beads:

  • AAA: superior cut. Generally the beads are eye clean unless otherwise stated.
  • AA+: excellent cut. A small number of inclusions may be present.
  • AA: very good cut, may have some inclusions which will be clearly stated and photographed.
  • Ungraded beads will be of commercial quality clearly described and photographed.

Sizes of beads and lengths of strands are also approximate but we try very hard to be as accurate as possible.
