I used these in a bracelet with Swarovski graphic cubes in Black Diamond (smoky grey). These beads are a bit metallic looking, which I didn't quite expect. They are shinier than the graphic cube crystals in my bracelet. Overall, pretty beads!
I used these to make a matching necklace and earring set for my niece's wedding. My niece had to have some purple, and these are a kind of muted, smokey purple. They are lovely next to the cream colored Swarovski pearls.
