Most of the beads that we choose are measured when they are made, a process called “calibration,” to ensure roundness and regularity. Below is an extreme example of a strand of lower grade 8mm coral where the cutters where not carefully measuring for precision.

This is a common practice with imported Indian beads. Whenever possible, we choose more regular beads, so we are sure that you will appreciate our quality! Malas Made in the USA, unless otherwise noted.
