The Story Behind the Gold Origami Crane: Beads of Courage has combined a treasured symbol of luck and longevity with an especially meaningful color to create our first-ever Gold Origami Crane bead.

For centuries, cranes have been revered in Japan, where legend holds that they have a lifespan of 1,000 years.

The gold Origami Crane dedication was a creative collaboration made possible through the support of Northwestern Mutual. The partnership further strengthens Northwestern Mutual's national Childhood Cancer Program by providing support to children and families coping with cancer.
