These 1970’s – 1980’s vintage Swarovski pointback chatons have gold foil and flat tables with beveled faceted borders. These are “second” quality stones. Swarovski is infamous for their high quality Austrian lead crystal, and I’ve heard many people say that Swarovski seconds are better than many other companies’ first quality stones. Others have told me that they can see the difference. I have included detailed photos, so that you can judge if these will work for your creations.
The rhinestones have been photographed in both direct and diffused light to give a clear sense of color. Please note that the highly magnified images show tiny flakes of dust (not scratches) that are not visible to the naked eye.
The color is Olivine, which is a gorgeous transparent olive green.
These are pointback rhinestones, which can be glued or mounted in bezels; they are not beads, so they do not have holes.
