2034 Concise Flatback Rhinestone – A much a sleeker and simpler addition to the rhinestone family. This style has a classic Rivoili cut but with a flatter and larger table size (increased 40%) along with a reduced weight – perfect for designs that need to be lightweight.
2078/H Framed Flatback Rhinestone - A gorgeous 2 for 1 style incorporating the sparkle of Swarovski crystal with the intensity of a metal frame around the stone. Offered in silver, gunmetal, and gold metal rings. This rhinestone is ONLY offered in a hot fix version.
2798 Contour Flatback Rhinestone - Reflects the raw, natural, and unspoiled beauty of the planet, offering a very organic shape. Its asymmetrical facets and table top show us that this style is unlike most classics but allows us to create unique and strong design patterns.
