Rated 4 out of 5 by Lapisphere Beautiful!
I fell in love with this before I even removed it from the little plastic bag it came in. The gold coloring is perfect...not artificial, just a warm gold look and it's a weighty piece. It is not at big as a Murano glass bead; similar in size to a healthy pea. So if you're expecting it to be garbanzo-like, you will be somewhat disappointed. I also purchased the basket weave bead and it's just as beautiful.
I'd give it 5 stars except, I don't know how well the gold vermeil will hold up. That remains to be seen.
