This sparkling selection of Dione® (dee-OH-nee) large-hole beads features solid color crystal rondelles, each with 32 shimmering facets. Commonly known as the Add A Bead system for popular mix-and-match bracelets and necklaces, this customer favorite is named for Dione, the mythological mother of Aphrodite. According to Greek mythology, the prophetic Titan goddess Dione and Greek god Zeus were mother and father to Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Much like Dione, who brought desirable beauty into the world, the sparkling large-hole crystal rondelles bring exquisite appeal to jewelry designs. The wide hole on these beads make them ideal for stringing onto thick cord and chain. Beads are machine-cut and faceted. Beads may vary up to 1mm in size.
