Opinions: Swarovski vs non-swarovski rhinestones

I am going to be purchasing some rhinestones for the bling on my shoes and probably cake topper and I am curious to get your thoughts about what ones to buy.


Do swarovski rhinestones really look different than just a regular flatback rhinestone??  Is it worth spending about $30 more to get swarovski flatbacks or am I not going to notice a huge difference??

Swarovski definitely has more sparkle and bling factor!  If its only $30 more, and your budget can handle that, splurge on Swarovski!

It depends. As long as you aren't getting the cheap-o craft rhinestones, they look pretty mcuh the same.

it depends. There are quite a lot of alternatives to Swarovski. If you are going to bling a pair of heels, I believe you will need at least 3000-5000pcs of rhinestones. in such case, price really matters. I bought some rhinestones from http://www.qrhinestones.com, they are not Swarovski, but they claimed that they are highly comparable to Swarovski, and I found out that they ARE. I am very satisfied with my purchase, so I'm recommending it to you. Their price is only around 1/3 of Swarovski rhinestones.
