I agree that pale pink is a misnomer, but it is normal for the finishes to really affect the colors on Czech beads. (Try Rosaline or Rosaline luster -- not Rosaline gold luster! - for a blush pink, or one of the Roses for a pure pink) But it's a pretty bead and the finish looks gold to me. The pink is shaded from pale to medium, and it has a purplish cast. Not sure what I will mix it with but I'll find something!

These are not pale pink. They are a medium pink with copper overtones, not gold as in the photo. Very disappointed.
In person, they look mostly like they do in the photo. If anything, maybe they look just a tad darker in person.
I don't know that I would use the term "pale pink" to describe them. To me, they are more of a a medium pink...I suppose that's a minor detail. The shiny gold luster gives them a unique sparkly quality. I plan on pairing them with gold Swarovski pearls.
