I have had more problems with the older beads than the new beads.
It seems as if they have gotten better with the coating and getting it to stick.
The vintage metallic coated beads and pearl coated beads are not reliable and will probably start flaking sooner or later. So those are the ones to avoid.

I have not had problems with modern coatings, with the exception of a few 'picasso' style coatings on seed beads.

In general, testing beads by washing them with soap and water is a good test, but will not catch all.
