This charm isn’t a true red. It is more of an autumn rust color. Some have described it as the color of a James Avery gift box and that is very close. If you want a true red choose a different charm. But if you are looking for a sunflower rust or autumn red than this is absolutely the perfect color. I pair it with the sunflower charm in the summer than transition to the acorn charm, with or without the sunflower charm, in the fall. Highly recommended!
Orange Bead, not red
Please note that this picture is NOT true to color. I purchased this for a Christmas bracelet, but it's too orange.
Very Disappointed :( definitely not as pictured otherwise I would have returned it....didn't feel like going through the hassle of shipping the entire bracelet. Since we are on lockdown or else I would of taken it back to the store. they should really change the name from red to orange since its VERY misleading.
It’s not red
I was excited for this charm but it’s not red !!! It’s a lighter color please change the name so people won’t be mislead
COLOR NOT ACCURATE
DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU ARE WANTING RED! I don't know why they don't change the color description and picture of this item. THE COLOR OF THE BEAD IS CORAL!!!!!! so disappointed!!!!!!!!

This really adds something special and eye-catching! I recommend this if you're aware of what color range carnelians really are. Colors can look different depending upon your computer settings. Thanks!
Like the other reviewers, this is not the red in the picture. More of an orange red closer to the James avery box, just a little darker. Unfortunately, I don’t live near any stores to return and didn’t want to go through the hassle and extra cost to exchange.

Not as pictured
Purchased for a charm bracelet for my grand daughter. The Red Carnelian Bead Charm is actually a shade of orange, very similar to the color of the James Avery box. Red was the color I wanted. There are no stores located near me, otherwise I would have returned it....didn't feel like going through the hassle of insuring and shipping the entire bracelet.
Love the color almost like a terracotta color love it for any day ....
