For me, these are better than sterling silver
I love these beads. Great quality. They combine the look of crystal and silver and add add a bit of sparkle, but no tarnish. For me, it's too much work to clean silver components that are between gemstones, crystal, and glass beeds. The tarnish remover, even anti-tarnishing cloths, can ruin the surface of other beads. Also, I don't like to give jewelry gifts which will require future intricate and careful silver bead cleaning. These 6mm Czech fire polished silver lined beads, and the 4mm size, as well as silver lined seed beads, are a better choice for me. I tried to order more, but they are sold out. Hoping they will be restocked soon.
