stone beads and pendants

Dakota Stones manufactures the only branded line of gemstone beads in the world. They work directly with stone cutters around the globe to ensure that their beads meet strict standards and know they are produced by fairly paid workers in safe conditions. Their quality is second to none in this space with laser drilled holes and first-hand knowledge of any treatments including if stones are natural, man-made, heated, dyed, composite or stabilized.

NATURAL: A stone that has had no treatment other than cutting, drilling and polishing.

MAN-MADE: Gemstones created by artificial means in a laboratory, many times to simulate a natural stone's characteristics.

HEATED: The stones are subjected to the use of heat to alter color or increase clarity. Heating can also be used to lighten or darken a stone.

DYED: Stones are treated with a dye to alter or enhance their color.

COMPOSITE: The creation of a gemstone by assembling and cementing several materials together.

STABILIZED: Stones undergo a process that involves putting them under pressure, forcing them to absorb a filler, such as an epoxy, resulting in a harder stone. Sometimes, stabilization also prevents a stone's color from fading.

MATTE:Stones undergo additional tumbling that require the same skill and craftsmanship as polishing, with the artisans understanding the requirements for each stone type. The matte finish also creates a variation in color from the traditional finish.
