Rhinestone Sample Card & Stone Sizes
We strongly suggest that you purchase a rhinestone sample card. The Swarovski and Czech Preciosa cards are factory cards. The RG Premium card is made in house. The sample cards actual rhinestones. All are glued onto clear sheet letting you place the rhinestones over your fabric/project. Having a color chart will help you select the appropriate rhinestone colors.
We cannot afford to sample individual rhinestones, jewels, nail heads, or other products. Shipping, item costs, and handling costs are prohibitive due to our world-wide market.

Rhinestone Sizes: Rhinestones are measured in 'SS' (Stone Size) sizes, and jewels are measured in millimeter. All current rulers have an inch side and a Centimeter (CM) side on them. Each centimeter (CM) is divided into 10 units, and each unit is a millimeter (MM). Below is a table of sizes in MM. Any pictures of rhinestone sizes shown on this site must be considered as relative, for your computer set-up may change the size of how each graphic is displayed. Monitor size and settings will vary from station to station. There is no way we can predict how your monitor will display these images.
Sizes show above are relative, not actual. A 30SS rhinestone has a diameter about that of a pencil eraser. See below for detail chart.
Handy Metric Comparisons: 25.5 MM = 1 Inch, 18 MM = 3/4 Inch, 12.5 MM = 1/2 Inch, 9MM = 3/8", 6.5 MM = 1/4", 5 MM = 7/32", 3 MM = 1/8"
