Swarovski Round Stones
These loose crystal elements feature round stones and have a range of different cuts, such as the XIRIUS Chaton (1088) - the most brilliant cut pointed back stone on the market. (Some refer to these pointed back stones as "diamantes".) The majority of round stones have a pointed back, making them easy to use with settings, die casts or metal alloys that have pre-set cavities into which they can be glued. It is for this reason, these stones are used heavily in the fashion jewelry industry.
