Subject: Coloured stones? Which brand?

1st time stoner

Ordered DD her first custom dress which will come without crystals. Was planning on doing the crystals myself along with a custom hairpiece to match.

Researching crystals, I notice that the Korean ones are super cheap and was wondering whether these might be better for the coloured stones that don't seem to show up much on stage anyway? Or is this false economy and I should really be looking to eek every last sparkle I can get by using Swarovski or preciosa?

False economy. They are cheap for a reason. You've spent a good amount of money on the dress itself, so why then Cut corners and use cheap inferior quality stones to save when it's not really possible to upgrade later. If immediate cost is a concern, invest in your crystal/crystal ABs first as they give you the most punch. add a base amount of colours within your budget to start with and add more later if you want to.

I don't recomend Preciosa or any other crystals (NT)Swarovski onlyWednesday, May 20, 08:20:53am

Swarovski is really the only good option. Use Preciosa if you have to, but other than that it's really not worth it. Dreamtime Creations sells them at good prices as do other webstores (NT)Get the bestWednesday, May 20, 08:55:43am

Really, there's so little difference in price, just a few dollars, that you are much better off going with Swarovski as your expensive dress will then have better resale value as well as better sparkle (NT).Wednesday, May 20, 04:50:09pm
