Preciosa Ornela (formerly Jablonex) color number 07331
***This color is often mistakenly distributed under Preciosa/Jablonex color # 73030 - 73030 had the color IN the glass, but production stopped a decade ago for environmental safety reasons. Color 07331 has chalk-white glass coated with pink. The colors look similar, but since the color no longer goes all the way through the bead it cannot be considered as durable for heirloom pieces.
