“Country Beads” (available globally)

 

A small series of beads (6 so far) marketed under this name, all Limited Edition. The later ones have country-specific catalogue numbers.

Not to be confused with the World Tour beads (released 2010-2012) which can be seen in this photo by Trollbeads below, and which were limited to their country (although sometimes available globally for a limited period):

Also not to be confused with the “City Beads” collection which launched in May 2015. These were also only available in their individual countries (although sometimes available globally for a limited period). There were nine to start with: London Gentleman; Seoul Haechi; New York Freedom; Shanghai Dragon; Cape Town Trinity; Tokyo Mount Fuji; Amsterdam Town House; Hong Kong Voyager; Rome Colosseum. In November 2017, a new city bead – apparently in this series – was released: the Prague bead, only available in Prague.

October 2017 – A purple diamond bead was released, limited to Japan. Despite having a Japanese reference, TZZJP-00231, this doesn’t seem to be a country bead as the theme is not related to Japan. All the other country bead designs relate somehow to a country.
