    Default Gold Diamond Cut Beads

    At the Ruckus, someone mentioned they were looking for the pyramid type diamond cut beads and I mentioned I knew a source. Unfortunately, I forgot who was looking for them, so I am posting the link here for everyone. Here is a link to them: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-PCS-Pure-1...53.m1438.l2649

    I got the 2mm ones and they are super tiny. I don't know what I was thinking when I ordered them, but obviously, I wasn't thinking!

    Thank you, Amti! The listing says they ship from LA. I wonder if they have a store we could visit ?

    I would love to get my hands on some of the 4mm 18k WG diamond cut beads from Japan the guy from tahitianpearls.biz uses. I believe those are the stunning beads in Newberry's necklace that look like diamonds.

    I would also KaySD. I looked at Gempacked but only saw yellow gold. I do like the 3mm diamond faceted YG I did get from them. They are heavy wall construction so they won't collapse.

    Usually don't post much here but I did look at the EBay vendor that was posted. I don't know if anyone checked the sellers other listings but the seller has a bracelet of 18k white gold beads listed that are faceted. Think they work out to about $9 a bead if you bought the bracelet. May be an option for someone looking for a bunch? In any event maybe that seller can source white gold versions for interested buyers?

    Yes, the Tahitian Biz necklace uses 4mm beads. I think the ebay ones are the same but in yellow gold. I also saw some similar beads on a fwp lariat strand in Sam's. I can't remember how many beads were on the strand, but remember calculating to see if it was cheaper to buy the Sam's necklace and take it apart. The strand was only $209 and I think the beads were 14k yellow gold, and it came with a pinch type clasp for the lariat.

    I saw the ones I purchased first at Costco and thought of buying the necklace to recycle. The cost at GemPacked was only $2.53 per bead so I bought 30 and only spent $76.00. Way cheaper than tearing a Costoco necklace apart and got more beads too.

    LFS, could you please post a photo or link for the beads you bought from Gempacked?

    I may buy more to put them between all the pearls. My husband kept looking at my neck and I asked why? He said necklace was very sparkly.

    lilliefuzzysocks, this gave me quite the giggle...your husband must be related to mine...he notices sparkle more than pearls.
    I think your necklace would look amazing with beads in between each pearl.
