I waited a long time (maybe 6 months or so) to purchase this bead...I loved the color combination shown in the picture, but couldn't justify why I should buy it for myself. I received a gift certificate for my birthday & just about the same time, this went on sale....perfect chance to treat myself!
The bead I received was a disappointment - it was the play of the colors in the photo that hooked me; my bead absolutely pales in comparison. I understand these are hand made & all of them will be different, but this barely looks like the same bead at all.
Mine shows no black color as described, just a clear blue over the silver. The purple accents are few & far between, almost presenting themselves as an afterthought. There is no "depth of color" to speak of. There is certainly no "ornate" quality to it.
I've actually worn it by itself on a sterling silver chain...doesn't look too bad, but again, not how I expected it to be.
