the vintage chinese knotted necklaces are always beautifully regular and its probably silk if the necklace is not contemporary.
i find simple double knots - an extra turn in an overhand knot- are not useful for beads because they are not very fat and elongate over time, while the more fancy ones such as are called "Matthew Walker", or "Crowning" make a good compact cushion shape - they are much more work but the result can look and feel secure.-otherwise i teach my students how to use enough thread thickness to fill the holes of the beads so when tightened up in the best way our ordinary knots can't slide inside...
