    Default Where to find White Gold and Rose Gold beads?

    Hello all,

    I found Cooksongold via Google after needing Sterling Silver beads. I currently run a business selling costume jewellery. This is obviously all mass produced but my business model was to 'sell in my sleep' as people say. If I was to make jewellery it's like anything. You can only make as much money as the hours you can physically work.

    Anyway,

    I had a few customers wanting bracelets from 4mm silver beads. My supplier agreed to mass produce these for me if I got the beads to them. (This way we can guarantee authenticity too)! I could make 1 every 30 minutes whereas they would turn around 50 in that time. This was all fine and dandy and these bracelets are now a very popular buy.
    However, someone spotted this bracelet on my wrist and asked if I could make one in White Gold instead of silver.

    So my question is does anyone know where I can buy 4mm White Gold Beads, Polished with 2 holes?
    And while we are on, Rose Gold too just in case?

    I hope this is in the correct section and I haven't broken any rules here.

    Thanks in advance.


    Kind Regards,
    Ant

    Hello Wallace,

    Thank you for your quick reply!
    I think I'm going to have to scrap the idea of Rose Gold and just have Silver, Yellow Gold and White Gold.
    After lots more searching google it looks like SamuelFindings sell 18ct White Gold beads too!

    limited help I am sorry to say - I don't tend to make or buy these types of findings very often.

    Glad you found something in the end. All good to know, thanks for sharing.

    Limited help is better than no help at all Wallace, don't worry!

    I'm still very new to having to find these sort of items too. As I say I usually purchase mass produced costume jewellery haha!

    You could always get the silver ones plated.

    @Wallace, when I buy mass produced I still stick to items that sell well. I don't venture far away from earrings if i'm honest. Rings were always a pain as there are different sizes you have to cater for etc. I would love to be able to replicate my costume jewellery in silver and gold. We'll see.

    @caroleallen I did think this yesterday after seeing the price. Could you help me here? What would I need to do this or does someone offer this service?
    This way I could get them Rose Gold plated too.

    No problem.
    My customer has decided they don't want them plated. If they were to have them plated they said they would go for silver and pay less.

    At least I know where to get them now at least.
