Comments:

I very much like French rose.  Certain pinks are made by mixing actual gold into the glass, and this may be one of those pinks, which would explain why it is so expensive.  On the other hand, the supplier may have simply put a premium price on the beads because they are so nice.  I definitely like them.  My picture doesn't do them justic.
