When you’re shopping for Swarovski crystal beads, you’ll find they come in a huge choice of designs. Used to create beautiful and luxurious-looking jewellery, these high-quality beads are sure to enhance your projects without breaking the bank.
The question is, which Swarovski crystal beads are right for you? Here, you’ll discover some of the best tips to follow, to ensure you’re making the right purchasing decision.
Understand your options
First, you’ll want to check out the entire Swarovski crystal beads collection. These include:
Each collection has its own unique features and benefits, and you can mix and match them for truly unique designs. The Becharmed and Pave beads are made with a high-quality stainless-steel inner. They're ideal for creating beautiful charm bracelets.
The Bicone bead collection is the largest on offer, with over 200 different colour options. They're very versatile, and can be used in a range of projects. The Rondelle beads contain round stones, and feature metal parts which are often used as spacers.
If you’re looking for something a little more unusual, we have a great collection of shaped Swarovski crystal beads. These are available in a variety of different shapes including hearts, butterflies and flowers.
Consider your clientele
When creating jewellery with Swarovski crystal beads, you’ll want to consider your clientele. If you’re catering to customers looking for luxury, for example, you’re going to want to pay closer attention to the crystals you choose. The Becharmed and Pave, alongside the shaped beads, are great for creating more luxurious designs.
If you’re catering to a more budget-conscious customer, the Bicone beads and Rondelle beads are a great option.
Select the right finish
Each Swarovski crystal bead has its own unique finish. Some are much more sparkly than others, and there are hundreds of different colour options available. You’re going to want to make sure you’re choosing the right finish to match your requirements.
For example, our range of Swarovski Bicone beads comes with rounded holes. These prevent the beads from wearing out the thread once they’re attached. It’s these little details which can make all the difference to your projects.
There are many different Swarovski crystal beads to choose from. Don’t forget, to save money you can also invest in our wholesale packs. These are sold at slightly discounted prices. For maximum savings, if you spend over £100 per month, you can also apply for our trade account. This offers further discounts on wholesale packs.
