This sparkling selection of Dione® (dee-OH-nee) large-hole glass beads features solid color glass 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.

Much like Dione, who brought desirable beauty into the world, the sparkling large-hole glass rondelles bring exquisite appeal to jewelry designs. The glass beads can accommodate chain and cord up to 4.5mm in width. Beads are machine-cut and faceted. Center hole is 5mm. Beads may vary up to 1mm in size.
