SWAROVSKI NEWS and Update

Preciosa is the choice for crystals

Swarovski distribution of Crystal Components as you know it is coming to an end worldwide. The change affects the Do It Yourself, nail techs, retail, and most business users. By the end of September 2021, they will stop product distribution to resellers of Swarovski crystals. Swarovski decided to focus on few market segments in the luxury, accessories, fashion, and selective niches.

While few businesses may be able to purchase limited Swarovski products from a few sources, they will have to go through an application process, and approval by Swarovski. If approved, they will have to sign a strict legal Brand Control Agreement where they will not be able to market, advertise, or label their products with any reference or connection to the Swarovski brand name or the crystals origins, example “made in Austria”. Why would you want to do that?

We were Swarovski Authorized Reseller for many years until this recent change. We are still authorized to sell our Swarovski stock, without restrictions, until our stock runs out. As our stock is substantial, it would take a while.

On March 31st, 2021, Swarovski substantially reduced their catalog with many colors and crystal rhinestones and shapes being discontinued. We do suggest that if you choose to purchase a specific Swarovski Color or Product, be sure to purchase in sufficient quantities to complete your project as the goods may not be available later.

However, our best advice to you is to move on to different brands and support your re-sellers and the brands that let you market your creations how you wish.

We have been preparing for this change for quiet some time and have brought in the complete line of Preciosa® Maxima rhinestones, which we found to be amazing in their sparkle and flash. The Maxima stones feature the latest technology in crystals’ creation. In our opinion the Maxima rhinestones outperform Swarovski’s rhinestones. They have spectacular and precision cut facets from the smallest to the largest stones. The Maxima crystals were added to our established full line of Preciosa VIVA stones that we have been carrying for years of being one of the largest authorized partner of Preciosa. In additional we have our line of fantastic crystals, Bright Choice and RG Premium products. So you do have fantastic options.
