Rhinestone Guy Says: Stop wasting money and use Czech Preciosa ...sorry to be so blunt, but that is our job. Even better, consider our the RG Premium All Purpose rhinestones for the best BLING for your money.
Czech Preciosa Flat Back rhinestones are an excellent choice and are regarded as an industry rhinestone quality standard. They are somewhat harder than Swarovski rhinestones. For centuries, Bohemia, a part of the Czech Republic, has been known for its crystal. It was here where the art of crystal cutting was perfected.
The newer stock VIVA has 12 facets, however certain colors still have original 8 facets, particularly smaller stones. Many of the Czech Preciosa colors are very similar to those of Swarovski. However, colors are NOT identical to Swarovski ...consult your color sample card. Very High Quality Lead Crystal Rhinestones, 1st Quality by Preciosa (Bohemian Crystal) (20% or more by weight lead) Excellent facets and cutting - 12 facet for maximum light reflection...lots of flash!
OUR 8 FACETS LEFTOVERS STOCK IS NOW on CLEARANCE at reduced pricing. Once these 8 Facets stones are gone, they will be gone forever. Flat Back and Hot Fix. Excellent for any rhinestone application, but especially desirable in costumes where "flash" is important, and our choice for belts and leather wear.
