Price Per Lot: $3.80
Lots Available: 30
Style No. (bin): G2147 (aoa~m)

Style: G2147
Beads per lot: 75
Cost per bead: 5 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 6mm round (spherical).
Colors/description: Light peachy pink.  These beads are about mid-way between being peachy and being rosy.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: Defects that are common to pearls include slight anomalies in the surfaces, and tags around the holes that have to be clipped off with nippers (although I don't see any of those problems in these pearls, so far).  Pearls are synthetically coated, and I don't know how durable they are.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: The actual beads have a slightly richer color than the picture indicates.  Under my daylight-balanced light bulbs, they look lighter and more washed-out than they do in natural daylight -- and I fixed up the picture at night using my bulbs for light.  When I looked at them during the day at the window, I realized my mistake.

As I said above, these beads are mid-way between peachy and rosy.  I wasn't sure whether to call them peachy or dusky.  They are, frankly, a somewhat unusual shade of pink (in my opinion).  I got them from a new supplier.

Note:  The beads have changed color slightly.  As I write this in 2017, they look a little more peachy than they do in the picture.  As I have said elsewhere on this site, I discovered a few years ago that synthetically coated beads fade or change color with time (and because of that, I am no longer purchasing them).  If a pearl changes color to the extent that I feel I must re-take the picture, then I remove it from the site and put it into a discounted "faded pearls" mix.  If you can still buy the beads individually, that means their color hasn't changed much.
