great for scrapbooking!
Great assortment of shapes, sizes, and colors! I use them in my layouts for flower centers to add some bling! The very tiny butterflies were my favorite because I put a group of them next to my ultrasound photo and wrote "you were the butterflies in my stomach"! My kids are grown now and cried when they saw it!!!

I purchased this for my daughters birthday party and she and her friends used them to decorate totes and hair accessories. Its great and they had lots of fun. I have used them on boxes also and plan to make a glitzy photo frame next. Lots of shapes and colors to have fun.

ritzy rhinestones compared to self adhesive jewels 500 pieces
I have bought many packs of self adhesive jewels in the past, but bought ritzy rhinestones to compare the two. My package weighed 7.8 oz instead of 8 oz. The number of jewels was approximately 500. The sizes of the jewels range from slightly bigger than 1/8th inch (tiny dots) to 1 inch. Though the number of jewels in ritzy rhinestones and self adhesive jewels are the same, the rhinestones have a larger size range (all the self adhesive jewels are 1/2"). Also, the ritzy rhinestones have different shapes and are not all flat on the back (some have 3D gem shapes) so can't all be stuck down to a flat surface. The ritzy rhinestones are not very shiny or of as good quality as the self adhesive jewels. I am going to stick with buying the self adhesive jewels in the future, and avoid these ritzy rhinestones.

seemed old and damaged
when I opened the bag it seemed like they had been sitting in the warehouse for too long, not even shinny anymore, faded, cracked not what I expected. One of the bags was opened and they were all over and falling out of the bottom of the box, so I know I did not get a full bag.

all gems are scratched
The gems in this bag are all scratched and dull.

I bought these jewels for a craft project for my daughter's birthday party. They are exactly what I wanted, but thought there would be more in the package for that price.

Great for price
I agree with some of the other reviews that it is not the absolutely best quality, but it is a great value!
Great variety and a really large amount of gems. My 3 year old loves them. We use them for crafts and treasure hunts.
My local craft store may have better quality, but I wouldn¿¿¿t have gotten even a third of the amount for the same price and for a 3 year old they are simply heaven.

Looks like the picture
We used these to attach to backpacks for a children's party activity. We attached them with the puffy fabric paint I got at Michael's. They look exactly like the picture. I wouldn't say they're top quality, but there's a good assortment of shapes, sizes & colors. Exactly what I was looking for.

I bought these to use with the color your own Mardi Gras masks, and they worked really well, but we all wished they were self adhesive. We loved all the different sizes and the quality, but kind of a pain to glue. Mom had to help with the project more than was anticipated which led to 5-year old's frustration.

Good value for the price
I wanted to have some basic art supplies for my kids to use. It was alot cheaper to buy them in bulk this way instead of at a craft store. Has a variety of sizes and colors. My girls really enjoy the rhinestones.
