I prefer this color to amethyst. It's deeper and richer. Sold many earrings and necklace earring sets.
This is an eye catching color. I have made earrings with these and I sell out immediately. This is a keeper.
I've used the 14mm before to make earrings. Everyone who has seen them immediately bought them and are raving about how great they look and how many compliments they have gotten wearing the earrings. So, just bought more 14mm to make additional earrings to go with the 17 inch heart.
The Swarovski 14mm XILION Heart Pendant Crystal Heliotrope, are a gorgeous shade of purple. I was able to make beautiful dangly earrings with them. In case you are interested, I used the following products from Artbeads: (2) BRIGHT 6x8mm Sterling Oval S-Cut Bead, (2) Swarovski 4mm XILION Bicone Heliotrope, (2) Swarovski 6mm Round Pearl Light Creamrose! (2) Silver-Plated Earwire with Coil and Beaded Disk and 925/10 Silver-Filled Rolo Chain.
