Question about Rhinestone sizes

toomuchglassFebruary 8, 2007

Well - I suppose more things than rhinestones are measured this way - but I've always wondered what the " SS " in the size stands for. I want to know millimeters - not whatever size SS stands for ! Do you know ?

Do you mind me asking where they are using the "SS" size measurements at? Just curious I've never seen them measured that way.

Sure Ginger -for instance - in the rhinestone catalog - they go by :
SS5
SS7
SS10
SS12

and so on up to

SS48.

Sure is strange.

MYSTERY SOLVED !!! Thank you so much Ginger !!! For the life of me - I couldn't figure out what that meant.
( I still wish they'd just do Millimeters !) LOL

I know what you mean I hate when folks try give me inch measurements for beads...I only know jewelry making supplies by the metric system...gets frustrating.

Now we both learned something useful anyway.

Good luck!
