More information about these special beads: These opaque glass beads are vintage and were only made from the 1920's through the 1960's in West Germany. The original factory was destroyed in WWII. The maker of these beads invented a method for electroplating 24kt gold to glass., first by plating the glass with platinum and then plating the gold over it. They are rare and no longer in production thus making them more special and uniquely a part of history when worn.
