These are really nice beads, with a deliciously soft, sophisticated metalic sheen (rather than a high gloss), and a deep "antique" golden hue that appears to come from within. Almost like centuries-old bronze. Rich, but understated, they can be very versatile, depending on how you "dress" them. They would work very well with many colors. So many possibilities!
These are gorgeous beads! I love the gold highlights, especially when paired with gold beads or crystals. I would have bought more but they are a bit pricey.
