Gilded steel beads have become a preferred choice for bracelets due to their very durable gold coating. The beads and tube beads, which often have a raw and edgy appearance, are available in many classic designs and have proved especially popular in jewelry for men. Besides, their simplicity goes nicely with the minimalist Scandinavian jewelry style. But apart from the unpretentious designs, you will find gold-plated steel beads that are far more flashy, embellished with crystals, rose gold varieties and simple beads with heart-shaped pendants, pearls or faceted crystal teardrops.
The steel beads are plated with 18 carat gold - unless stated otherwise .
