The beauty of a shimmering golden shine can now be added to your large hole designs with the sterling silver gold-plated spiral-cut round bead with a 2mm hole. This bead is in the shape of a sphere and features gold plating to give it that regal shine that only gold can bring. A spiral design is cut around the entire surface of the bead, from one end of the stringing hole to the other. The high-quality material and the beautiful shine of this bead ensure that your designs will always look professional and polished. These diamond cut sterling silver beads are more than just plated sterling silver. While the entire manufacturing process is complex and confidential, we do know that these beads are plated, cut and then only the cuts are replated so that the brilliant shine remains. These beads look fabulous with other 2mm hole size components.
