NOT "Garnet", bright cherry red.
I have 2 problems with these "Garnet" beads. a) NOT Garnet but a bright cherry red color that makes them look plastic and b) most of the beads do NOT look like Cut Glass, they look like cheep pressed glass beads.
I ordered multiple colors of this design and they were all fine, but these "Garnets" are very disapointing.
I don't understand how 3 of the 4 colors I ordered were perfect and one was completely horrible.

One of the best purchases ever
I have been making jewerley for a few years now, and NEVER knew orientaltrading sold beads. These beads are just as great as the super expensive one I have bought in the past. Not anymore, I'll be buying from here from now on.
Thank-you Oriental Trader

I was very disappointed at the price and then number received. I know that this was clearly advertised, but when I received them, they were not as pretty as the picture showed and definitely not worth the price!

Not impressed with color purity.

Agreed - Color is Not Quite Right
This bicone mix does not have anything inherently wrong with it - the stones are not as sparkly as depicted in the photo, and the color is definitely RED, like bright fire hydrant red, not deep like the photo. The mix of sizes is nice, though, and they had a bit more bling (but still not quite like the photo) after I polished them with a damp paper towel. For the money, a relatively good deal.
