Swarovski Round Stones: Why designers decide on loose crystals
Swarovski Round Stones, also known as chatons, are among the most innovative rhinestones on the market. Designers around the world appreciate the loose crystal elements with their incomparable sparkling brilliance and use them for fashion and competitive dancing, jewelry and accessories. Jean Paul Gaultier, Atelier Versace and Mary Katrantzou are among the best-known international designers who regularly opt for Swarovski Round Stones.
The many application options make the crystal chatons very popular. The radiantly beautiful glass stones can be attached by hand with pliers, metal spatulas or punching tools and fastened with a machine. In addition, the crystal elements can be used in a variety of settings with metal claws and glued-in die-cast forms or settings. Another application option is Swarovski Ceralun, a special two-component epoxy composite.
The quality assurance of Round Stones
Swarovski Round Stones’ multi-faceted cut makes the stones radiate uniquely. Thanks to strict production standards, the round crystals are particularly clear and constantly intense in color. Swarovski's lead-free Advanced Quality Standard* guarantees compliance with world-class processes. Trust the patented cutting technology for expert quality. You can choose between the rivoli, flower, crystal or brilliant cut.
The loose crystal elements are available in numerous sizes and a total of over 100 intensely vibrant colors and effects: These range from subtle nuances such as the Xilion Light Gray Opal to shimmering variants such as the Xirius Crystal Rose Patina to the strong tones found in the ruby red Xirius Siam Chaton or in Swarovski's Rivoli Majestic Blue Round Stone.
* Crystal glass and all other materials contain 0.009 % (90ppm) lead or less.
Xirius and Xero — Swarovski Round Stones innovations
By choosing Xirius, you have selected the world's most brilliant cut on the market – the revolutionary crystal most closely matches Daniel Swarovski’s vision of a “diamond for every woman”. The breathtaking Xirius mesmerizes with its timeless charm and an unsurpassed sparkle.
Xero is the world's smallest crystal: the precision-cut Swarovski rhinestone is no bigger than the tip of a fountain pen. No wonder that this tiny format is used for decorative embellishments on elegant wrist watches or designer glasses – and is often ideal for accents or logos.
