This bead is a rich gold color and a little darker than the photo here. It is quite similar in color density to the antique bronze bead. Both are gold, with the bronze leaning toward reddish gold, and the antique bronze leaning toward greenish gold. Note: the antique bronze is quite a bit lighter than the photo shown for it. It's not a dark bead at all. Both of these gold beads work beautifully with the medium gray bead called Ceylon Smoke, and all of them have a high luster. All these colors work nicely with topaz crystals.
I used these with 6/0 matubo and 8/0 demi rounds. very pretty.
TOHO 6/0 Round Bronze Bead
Very nice looking beads. Will definitely purchase more. Nice change from silver and gold.
I,m trying to branch out of my comfort zone which is pretty much anything silver. This is a nice color and I wasn't dissappointed .Will use these in a wrap bracelet.
