  1. Hi everyone!

    Just curious, which is your preferred color of carnelian? I have two sweet bracelets and they are different in color; one is a darker red and one is a brighter red. Looking at them, I can't decide!
     
  2. I like true red carnelian, as red as possible and I prefer it without orange undertones.
    I have a sweet carnelian bracelet too and it has a really nice shade of red.
    But it is a matter of personal taste. You should go for what you love and what works best for you ;).
     
  3. I love it all.
    Most of mine is very red although I did purchase a brighter red pair of sweets for my daughter.
    They just seemed more youthful/ happy.
     
  4. Very true!!! When I went I didn't even think to ask for more than one option, I was just so happy to get my bracelet!
     
  5. Aww so sweet to treat your daughter!
     
  6. I love the dark rich almost hermes red...
     
  7. I apologize if this is a dumb question, but I know nothing about carnelian. Can it ever have bluish undertones? Or is it always pure red/orange-red?
     
  8. I've seen carnelian that is very opaque and almost an Oxblood red. Great question!
