A new customer? How YOU can get the most out of our site...

Looking for flatbacks to glue-on? Go to Rhinestones Non-Hotfix and then use the filters on the left-hand side to find the size/colour/brand/shape you want. (NB: Clear & Clear AB are different from Crystal & Crystal AB). Looking for flatbacks to hotfix on? Go to Rhinestones Hotfix and use the filters there in the same way. Looking for something to sew-on? Go to Sew-On Small & Feature Stones and use the filters there also. And so on... Once you're in any section you can also choose to view All Products in that section, simply by selecting View All Products, instead of viewing only 9 at a time.

Using the Search Bar... 

Our search bar is designed to find the exact word/phrase you search for, in the exact word/phrase in our titles of our products. If you use a word/phrase not in our titles, you won't find any may be best to go to the relevant Category and use the Filters to narrow your search down there instead. 

Globally, rhinestones are known as different names ; strass, swarovskis, crystals, diamantes, flatbacks, etc. To overcome these regional variations we use the manufacturer's article numbers and definition, eg; non-hotfix, in the title. 

To use the Search bar, simply use the word/phrase that we use; 'non-hotfix' OR 'Swarovski' OR 'Hotfix' OR 'bicone' OR 'pearl', NOT 'Swarovski pearl hotfix white', for example. Or, use the colour name perhaps... a simple search for 'Amethyst' will show all products that colour, while a search for 'Preciosa Amethyst' will show none, even though we have plenty of Amethyst items in our Preciosa ranges. 

It's our pleasure to serve you with the things that matter most!
