Many have asked us, “what are the most popular bead colors?” That questions can change with the season, with the specific type of bead, and over time, but each day at thePotomac Bead Company our number one task and top priority is to fulfill orders and ship them out to our customers as soon as possible.
It is always fun to see the color combinations that our customers choose as we are picking orders. Some stick to earth tones, others to pastels, and some order a mixture of all different shades. Regardless of the wide array of colors of beads we ship out each day, there are always a few popular bead colors in 2018 that we see as a theme throughout orders.

Well there you have our top 10 most popular bead colors and not surprisingly, these colors tend to sell quickly! We arrived at these colors by comparing 30 of the most popular styles of beads, and ranking the colors of each across a 1-year period. Note, that this list does NOT include crystal colors, because crystals tend to have very different types of colors. The popularity for those also tends to be more in favor of transparent and AB (aurora borealis) styles. Look for an upcoming blog focused specifically on crystals :).
