Gemstone Chip Beads
We offer a great selection of semi-precious
gemstone chip beads. Chip beads are also sometimes referred to as "gemstone nuggets".
The chips come in two basic
size categories: Mini-chips and 'Regular' size. Although they can have larger sizes available but not so often. All chips
have a smooth finish with somewhat good polish . Chips on the same strand will vary in size by a few millimeters.
The strand lengths and stringing methods vary widely
. Most of the "full" 32 inch strands are continuous (in a loop); some will be as long as 34" or 36" - but we call them 32"
- that way you might get more but never less than you expect. Mini-chips are usually strung on shorter strands, they vary
from 14" to 16" (abbreviated: 14-16" Strand), depending on the supplier. Occasionally, the mini-chips will also be available
in the longer continuous loop strands - if so, the length will be stated.
Full strand lengths for some of these chip bead strands will be at least 32"
(unless otherwise marked) and may occasionally be up to 36". They all are continuous strands.
