18K Yellow Gold 5.5mm Round Granulated Bead



Description

Granulated over the entire surface, this round 18-karat yellow bead is handcrafted and provides an ideal accent in beaded designs, especially when alternated with pearls or stone beads. Granulation is an ancient and labor-intensive technique in which high-karat gold granules are fused, not soldered, to a high-karat gold surface, most often a bead. Round beads are a staple of strung designs; they are ideal simply strung together, used individually as separators or accents, or to complement other elements in drop or dangle earrings, bracelets or necklaces. High-karat gold provides a rich, deep-yellow color to beaded designs.
