These 1960’s – 1970’s vintage Optima rhinestones are an early predecessor to the ever popular Preciosa stones. They’re pointback chatons with gold foil and flat tables with beveled faceted borders. The rhinestones have been photographed in both direct and diffused light to give a clear sense of color. Please note that the highly magnified images show tiny flakes of dust (not scratches) that are not visible to the naked eye.
The color is amethyst, which is a rich transparent purple
These are pointback rhinestones, which can be glued or mounted in bezels; they are not beads, so they do not have holes.
