Daily Wire Tip Jan. 15: More About Multicolored CZs
Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
January 15, 2011
I’m very interested in the Lucky Stone multi colored CZs. I finally figured out the light and dark difference. Will there be a consistent color in them? Also I like the baguette style, but I am not familiar with the concave version. What is half-drilled? I was wondering if you could answer this quickly since you have a sale on them now. Thank you so much.

Hi Linda, my order arrived the other day and as I look at these "Lucky" CZ stones to answer your questions, I am seriously impressed!
- Yes, the consistency of color is uniform when looking at two stones of the same size, shape and cut (so earrings will not be a challenge).
- When a faceted stone is concave cut, it means that the pavilion has been scalloped, giving an almost sunburst effect when viewing the stone from the front (concave cut is my personal favorite).
- When an item (usually a bead) is described as "half drilled," it means that a hole has been drilled on one side that goes from 1/3 to 1/2 of the way through the item. Most often half drilled beads are used at the end of a wire/eyepin/headpin, and adhered using a good epoxy.
I hope these answers help you choose your selection of "Lucky" CZ stones; just remember, when they are gone – they are gone!
