Home > Rhinestone Sizes and Styles
We have provided these sizing tools for your convenience. The photos do not accurately represent the actual sizes of the rhinestones. Please use the measurements below when determining the size of the rhinestones - but please be advised that these measurements should be used only as approximations. The best way to accurately view the colors and sizes is to order a " Color Chart" or a small quantity of stones before you place a large order.

NOTE: Hot Fix Rhinestone Articles 2000 and 2012 may have a cloudy film on the rhinestone. This is caused by the processing of the adhesive on these earlier Articles from Swarovski. If your rhinestones are cloudy, simply adhere them to your garment, then take a soft cloth (slightly damp of dry) and gently rub it across the rhinestones. This will remove the film and your rhinestones will sparkle beautifully!
