Thanks for the review Smile such a shame that the Aurora bead is only available in a set. I still like the sound of the day-glo orange bead, and I am glad you don't have to be a member of the Dutch royal family to buy one Very Happy

I am intrigued by the faceted glass on Royal Orange. Is the faceted glass molded or cut? I know nothing about making beads but in the photo it looks like there is a clear layer that is faceted over the orange center. I'm wondering if these beads will be uniform in size because of the method used to make them, or if they will vary a lot as with other glass.

And I'm distressed about the day-glo thing! I love orange but not fluorescent colors!!

As with any new bead some will love so won't, for me the orange bead has no warmth to it it does look like it has a clear layer over the top of the orange so i would think they will be uniform in size.

@Nkara wrote:Big shame if Aurora is only sold as a set, because although I don't have a bangle, the Aurora bead is one I can imagine myself having multiples of. But multiple sets - no thanks!
I'm sure some shops will break the rules anyway, but then again - that's sort of screwing over the loyal shops who follow rules.



I completely agree with you Nkara. So unfortunate that TB chooses to do things like this...much like the pink prism and the ring. However, over time, that didn't sell and how the pink prism is found at a dime a dozen. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out with the beautiful aurora bead. Mad

Looks like at least one website will be selling the Aurora bead separately for $65. I am sure there will be others. I think I will have to see it in person before I can decide if I want it or not.

I have found a Royal Orange and an Oranje Boven in the exact same colour today. But the Oranje Boven might be a little darker - depends on the bead. But the Royal Orange has less glitter in it than the Oranje Boven.

thank you so much, i usually KNOW that, but once I see a bead I fancy AND it has a limited edition label on it... I seem to forget all logical thoughts. Embarassed

Well, some distributors outside NL apparently learned the bead officially sells at their countries from April 12th, while here in NL the beads are sold as from today... Though I think Switzerland beat us to the bead and certainly Catsworld! Laughing

The two Royal Orange beads I ordered arrived in yesterday's post. I blinked when I opened the pouch - they are very orange - like dayglo, safety vest, traffic cone orange. That said - I do like the bead. A memorable bead for a memorable event. Not sure I want two on one bracelet though. I may put together a Dutch coronation themed bracelet and use the other with some of the orange small and beautifuls like umbrellas and koi pond.

I got a Royal Orange from my LD on the 6th - maybe ahead of when I was supposed to? Smile - it's beautiful, but very bright and I haven't been able to really put it together with the themes I've been working on. Eventually I'll use it, I imagine, but it is ... bright!

I ordered the Royal Orange to commemmorate something myself on the 10th of April, ordered on 10th arrived the 11th and really happy with it.
One is the same orange as my oranje boven. One a bit lighter but my oranje boven also vary, so not worried..

The gold is slightly less and the beads are slightly smaller probably because of the facetting..

Catsworld I have seen 6 of aurora beads till now... they are stunning. They vary in color and size so you must search for one you love. But there are only 2500 beads world wide of this ... The deal here is you have to buy it as gift-kit : bangle + 2 stoppers + aurora
