There seems to be a standardised set of sizes called SSx - SS5 seems to be 1.8mm diameter for example. Think ss stands for stone size. Secretlondon 21:00, 6 April 2007 (UTC)
- Yes, SS does stand for stone size. Also noted here is that the original sizing method was PP (pearl plate). The SS size uses a different scale. PP is more commonly used for jewelry, while SS is used for apparel. See here. Laydtc (talk) 13:02, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
"fashion forward"? Yuck. Can we come up with a less jargony term for it? Does "stylish" convey a similar-meaning? Or "style-conscious"?
Different stone qualities/types
I would like to expand on the different stone qualities. For example, Swarovski stones versus Chinese or Korean stones. Does anyone have any other information on other rhinestones from different origins? Also, there is very little information on heat transfer rhinestones used on apparel. I would like to add in the process of heat transferring with heat transfer machines vs. using an iron. Laydtc (talk) 12:56, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Why is the scale so irregular?
If the site Jewelrymaking-beads-library.com (which the article cites) is correct, the scale doesn't seem to employ a standard formula (in contradiction to what that site says, which makes it suspect) but is an irregular wobbly curve. Why is this the case? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:45, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
