Swarovski crystal Pendants are timeless for their brilliance and elegant cuts. Swarovski Pendants are amazingly versatile, especially given their large range of sizes. They can be used as striking focals, as drops, and even woven as "normal" beads in bead weaving. They also lend themselves to remarkable ease of use, requiring either just a bail, jump rings, and/or stringing materials. They are also perfectly complemented when worked with wire-work, with either the wire(s) going round the pendant or in creating customized bails for the crystal pendants. The joy and possibilities are quite endless.
The Swarovski crystal briolette has had a huge revival in popularity in recent times. The briolette is often, rightly or wrongly called, teardrop due to its shape.
The term "briolette" can refer to either the shape or the cut (facet) of the stone. Briolette is shaped like an elongated pear or like a tear drop. It is usually characterized by triangular facet cuts, but not always necessarily so.
Swarovski offers their 6010 Briolette crystal pendant in a large range of colors and effects, and in numerous sizes. In February 2012, they extended this range to include more of the new colors and effects launched in Swarovski Innovations Spring/Summer 2012.
