facetted strings
Explanation:
It's very vague but that may be as the writer is alluding to all sorts of "strings" (bracelets, earrings, pendants, etc.) with cut (faceted stones)
Looking at websites, I did notice that a "string" can be a string of stones or one stone hanging on a "string" of some sort.
You could almost say any sort of jewellery that dangles and has 1+ faceted stones.
I've tried to show this in my two references which feature very different "strings"
