Thought I'd try these beads for a necklace. I really liked the design on the bead. It turned out great! The gold matched really nice with the gold-filled beads, and goes really well with pearls. It's a bit heavy for earrings, but I loved as a focal bead for my necklace. I will be ordering more Venetian beads in the future.
This bead in this color matches light gold pearls really well. It would also match white pearls really well. The size is just large enough to be a smallish focal for a pearl necklace. The size is a little large for earrings except for a large-size wearer. If used for earrings, they might be a little heavy. I don't know how durable this bead would be for a bracelet. The picture on my monitor matches the item well.
