    I went to Abson inc in Rahway last weekend and purchased a few items. You can google it. It also has a branch in oaktree road.

    Regarding th size of beads; you alone can be the judge as you are the only person who knows what is in your mind:).
    I brought a string of medium sized peridot which I think is suffice to make a chain.
    I saw a couple who came back to the store as their jeweller told they need more corals to finish their chain. So;we can always come back to the store if we need more beads. Also if what we brought is excess we can add to bangles or earrings. Endless options:)
    Regarding recognising good beads over bad; I am a novice:hide:. I am the sort of person who thinks cubic zirconia is lovlier than diamonds :) So my policy is, " if it look good; buy it". Guess someone else will give the tips to find good gems over fake ones.
    Happy shopping

    Pooh;
    I am planning to do it in gold. Just stones in between the chain (not close). So I need just around 20-25 stones.
    I depends on how close you want the stones. If you are planning more a proper set; then I guess you will need a lot. Maybe you can chck this link http://www.indusladies.com/forums/jewellery/72875-some-of-my-jewel-collections.html. You will get some idea as to the count; I guess. The store people also will help you to get a proper count.

    If some Iltes has done this previously will help you.
    -Nitha

    You are asking the wrong person:)
    I dunno. Since some gems comes in different colours I am not sure. maybe yellow topaz or citrine or yellow sapphire.
    I have seen only pink ruby so far; so it is not ruby..to best of my knowledge :)
