As a Swarovski authorized dealer (wholesale/retail), I can help you either search for and/or order in for you the Swarovski you need to find. Feel free to use the free Library here to research for some of the hard-to-find Swarovski crystals.
Or Contact Me (new window) - please give me as much specifics as you can when enquiring after Swarovski, e.g. code number, size, color, effect.

Despite it comparative cost, Swarovski crystals remain unrivalled in their popularity as generation after generation look to Swarovski for perfection in cut & shine. The lead content (about 32% to maximise light refraction), which gives crystals their sparkle, is usually higher than in any other crystals offered, giving it the AAA quality.
