Iridescent Jewel Assortment
Great for bows
I bought these to make some bows for my girls and they are beautiful. There was one or two in the batch that were a little less than great, but overall they were a great buy. My mother-in-law buys her jewels locally and pays so much more for less. These sparkle so beautifully on the flowers and my girls love them.

Scratchy and tiny
Purchased as part of the centerpieces for my wedding. Turned out there were significantly more tiny pieces than medium/larger size pieces than I had anticipated (which I could work around), but the deal breaker was how scratched up they were! If you're looking for something with a nice shine to it, don't pick these.

Not a Good choice
I bought these to add some bling to my sons wedding and all I got was disappointment. All the jewels were scratched!

Not for stringing necklaces
Thought when I read "Containing medium-sized pieces with the occasional angular edge, these lightweight to sturdy crafts may require some assembly such as stringing beads or gluing items to create a 3-dimensional project" that I would be able to string these gems into necklaces, but apparently that's a standard disclaimer on all craft items. No pre-drilled holes on these gems. They are flat on the back.

I bought these to decorate at the fair for our 4-H clubs. They will probably be useful for other crafts projects.

not worth it
I bought these to put on the tables at my wedding reception and when I received them I was so disappointed. First, one of the bags was opened and spilled out. Second, the jewels were not sparkly like the photo. Third, the color and size are such poor quality. I am going to return mine. absolutely awful.

Dull and Cloudy Disappointment
I bought these for Christmas decorations, but these are too cloudy and scratched to even reflect light. I guess that I could fill ornaments with them in bulk and maybe get some sparkle. I should have heeded others' reviews.

Not what I expected
I thought these were jewels but they are flat on the bottom. They are still pretty but won't work for what I had intended them for.

a LOT of the larger gems were scratched/cloudy and unusable. the smaller sized ones were ok.

As others stated, these are cloudy and very scratched in the bag. Knowing that there would be some of this, I still ordered them, because I figured they would be ok. The large stones are virtually useless on any type of special project, but I may be able to use them on less important projects. The smaller stones seem to be ok, the scratches are less noticeable. I used some of the smaller ones on a Valentines' Day card and they looked nice.
