ALL KIND OF QUESTIONS
What is the material of your core?
The core is 925 sterling silver, which means the core is 92,5% made of silver, the other 7,5% is nickel-free.
What is the size of the core?
SMALL CORE: The inner tube size of the small cored beads is 4.1mm. It will only fit the smaller chains.
UNIVERSAL CORE: universal cored beads’ inner size is 4.3mm and fits most brands.
What are the sizes of the beads?
The base bead is always 14mm, and extra raised designs are on top of the base bead. The exact size of the bead is also noticed in the additional information. You can use “compare products” to see all the beads and sizes next to each other.
How do I recognize an authentic Ogerbead?
Of course, you can recognize an Ogerbead by design. But to help you recognize them even better, there is a little code at the flare of the silver core. You can only see it with a magnifier, and the code is ST925. The meaning of the code is ST “sterling” 925 “92,5% made of silver; the other 7,5% is nickel-free”. For the Universal Cored beads, the code is ST925U, where the “U” stands for Universal.
