Swarovski Pointed Back Rhinestones
Swarovski Crystals pointed back rhinestones have depth and provide fabulous refraction and Clarity. These stones should be set into metal setting with prongs or into cast settings with pre drilled cavities (can be glued). These pointed back rhinestones are primarily used for jewelry and accessories like sunglasses. However, some set them with tiffany sets into fabric (not easy). Swarovski created a few styles of point back, the most common is the 1028 and recently and coming into the market are the latest Xirius 1088. The Swarovski 1122 Rivolis and the newer 1188 pointed chatons have height and dimension in two directions and are great for jewelry.
Point back rhinestones start at PP sizes and go to SS sizes. PP (Pearl Plate) is a method of sizing originally used for pearls. These measurements have size variances. See size chart. If you are repairing an item, do not guess the size you may need, go to a jeweler to get the right size.
WE DO NOT SELL SINGLE COUNT POINT BACK RHINESTONES, AND QUANTITIES OF LESS THAN 1 GROSS (144 STONES). Small stones are subject to minimum purchase - No Exceptions
If you need a few stones to repair jewelry, sunglasses, etc...
