"CAL" is Swarovski's abbreviation for "comet argent light" which is a vacuum metal coating applied to the surface of the stone producing a bright, mirror-like effect. The "V" stands for "reverse" meaning, the surface effect has been used as a translucent effect, applied only to the back of the stone.
In line with edgy and textural trends, these BeCharmed pavé beads are encrusted with spiked Swarovski® crystals. Each large-hole bead has a 4mm hole for stringing onto Add A Bead chain, custom kumihimo, ribbon and other preferred cording. Stainless steel core is branded with "SWAROVSKI®" for authenticity and instant style recognition.
Color of the stainless steel grommets can vary and may darken slightly with age.
