    Wow, these look like the real thing! I could think of a million ways to use them. I could set them in jewelry setting for rings & pendants or drill them for dangles . . . and that’s just for starters!

  • Those are just begging to be the center piece of an awesome necklace and earring set!!

  • candace

    Ilove to contrast the crystals with beach stone and other textures in bead embroidery

  • These are gorgeous! I can totally see the two purple tear drops, set in silver, dangling from my ears!

  • Kashmira Patel

    Wow, such gorgeous colors!!!

    I can already see these in a vintage style necklace on a deep purple organza ribbon…with antique finish findings

  • marilou95

    Wow !! They are simply gorgeous !!

    So many possibilities…

  • luanne kleiman

    Oh colors like these need to be the center of attention in a piece that would be worn near the face! That big pink one has me drooling~!

  • They are so gorgeous. The large pink one would be perfect in a peyote bezel.

  • Sue R.

    I would keep it simple and glue each of the two little pink ones to a sterling cup post earring. Just a delicate spot of sparkle on my ears! :)

  • Kim T

    I would use the large round stone as the center of a beaded “Dahlia” flower. I can see the crystal clear drop with lots of “icy” drops attached to it on a pendant. My mind is swimming with ideas for all of these gorgeous gems!!

  • Dorothy

    I don’t really think it would take me long to find something to d with every one of these… they’re soooooo gorgeous! But I do know which ones I’d use first and I knew it the minute I saw them. I’d work a bezel with tiny pearls around each one of the two chatons in the lower right corner… then I’d do a twist/braid-like frame of tiny pearls and 3mm bicones around each one and make earrings much like the ones I remember my mom having when I was very young. I thought those earrings were absolutely the most beautiful things in the whole world… and I very well may have been right… wish I knew what happened to them. I do think they were probably good costume jewelry and not “real” ’cause I’m sure I’d know where they were (it would be with me if they’d been real!!!

  • My thing is bead embroidered cuffs, and I see many possibilities here. My latest cuff features a quartet of Swarovski rivolis with seeded bezels surrounded with Swarovski bicones and other beads. So, yes, I would make good use of this!

  • Denise Brown

    Setting them in custom made metal rings would be great. But I have also seen them put on shoes, they look amazing and I have a pair screaming for them.

  • Ulyana Seryankina

    I’ v been looking on them long time! I am in love..!
    I have a clear picture in my mind I WILL DO one of a kind Queen necklace! My first one I name the Queen Victoria! I will use all sizes and shapes in it!
    O my!! it will be gorgeous!

  • MelodyJ

    I would create earrings and necklaces.

    melodyj(at)gmail(dot)com

  • Sandra B

    I would make some earrings and necklaces, and a ring.

  • oooo.. I’m drooling just thinking about what I could do with these sparklies!! I see some pretty earrings, a couple pendants…. and probably at least one or two bracelets. :)

  • Crystal Cason

    I can see some rings, some beautiful earrings, necklaces, and perhaps a hair accessory. Of course they would be against the backdrop of the red carpet and the awards show.

  • Carol Ascher

    I would make a beautiful pendant and earrings to match. What a beautiful site!

  • Karen

    I would definitely be learning to do the bezel setting with seed beads and making some great necklaces, earring and would even make a ring or two!

  • Debbi C

    Wow! Talk about sparkly! I’d use these new Swarovski fancy stones to make one big bold necklace to wear on a runway…not to model, but to land a plane! They are THAT sparkly!
    All joking aside, I’d use them for very special pieces and showcase the Swarovski fancies!

  • Cara Wagner

    I just learned some new bezeling techniques at the Bead and Button Show – I predict a bezeling bonanaza!

  • Ashley Alejandro

    I would LOVE to use these to make some amazing new wirework rings and earrings! I just learned some new techniques that I tried with a CZ, but these would blow that out of the water!!!! These are quite possibly the most beautiful stones ever! Who wouldn’t feel like a queen in these?!

  • Rachael Ng

    These crystals would come in handy when I make a pair of sparkly, teardropped shaped earrings.

  • What wonderful focals the larger ones would make – a focus for some experimenting with other beads and beadwork to show it off! The smaller ones just beg to be earrings….or tiny delicate necklaces….ah, the possibilities!
    Would love to win this!

  • Jane

    They’re beautiful and what I’ve been looking for. A necklace with graduated descending stones would be perfect and seed bead bezels. Simple and stunning. Can’t wait to make it.

  • Dawn

    Those are quite pretty! I would love to wrap some wire around them to accentuate their sparkly-ness into some totally awesome rings!!! Too pretty!

  • Elizabeth Z

    I would love to create a needlepoint design that featured these eye-catching crystals. There are so many ways to anchor them to the needlepoint that each could be framed uniquely and in way to best show off their sparkle.

  • Gorgeous stones! I’ve been meaning to make something luxurious and grand lately using my bezelled rivolis and adding another big stone as centre would be perfect. True to my scandinavian love of minimalism and less is more, I never do any big and lush necklace projects with lots of bling so it’s a challenge I’ve dared myself with.

  • Tracy Benton

    I’d love to work one of these into a steampunk piece by wrapping it up in a fancy filigree and cementing it with gear components to a nice wide ring base. Instant anachronism!

  • Stephanie M.

    I love Swarovski crystal and these stones would be great to add to a wirework pendant. My birthday is coming soon and this would be a great gift for myself.

  • Cheryl

    SPARKLE-SPARKLE-SPARKLE! What more could a girl ask for???

  • Connie

    I have been staring at these beautiful “gems” and dreaming of ways to incorportate them into a wedding veil/tiara or dress. I am very, very new at beading/making jewelry (2 months) so my thoughts are racing a mile-a-minute. I see my birthstone color, my deceased mother’s birthstone color and my fiance’s…so nice. Being in our 60’s, it would be great to surprise my fiance & guests at our wedding showing something “I” made myself. Yes!!!

  • StaceyC

    I’d love to wire-wrap those, especially the big pear drops, and use them as focals in a chain and bead necklace or collar. :-D

  • Carole Roberts

    YUM, I would surround these beauties in peyote for a stunning jewel encrusted bracelet

  • Terry David

    I’ve loved Swarovski crystal since I discovered it many years ago. I love to work with it and I created all of the jewelry for my daughter’s and niece’s weddings. I made a stunning set of earrings and necklace for my sister-in-law and for myself. I would use these pieces to create unique jewelry or home accents.

  • Teresa R

    I see a bollywood style bib. Wire wrapped earrings. And an embroidered cuff. Then again as soon as I get them in my hands I will see even more possibilities.

  • Wow! Are those ever fabulous! I can see myself making an elegant, sumptuous necklace and earring set to wear to some big belly dance events this coming fall.

  • I love all of them! they are gorgeous. I would create bead embroidered earings with the blue teardrops! I think they would look gorgeous surrounded by seed beads!

  • I would LOVE to encase the large teardrop with seed beads and make a necklace for my niece to wear on her wedding day next year!

  • Lourdinha Novo

    I don’t know what I would make, but it wouldn’t be a single thing, maybe a brooch and a pair of earrings :)

  • Ivis McCarthy

    I love these! I would make my daughters birthday necklaces with them

  • Regi P

    I would have so much fun! Like a lot of the others, the teardrops are screaming earrings. I would use bead work to create vintage necklaces. They are SO beautiful!

  • Janet

    I am new to making jewelry, so far I have been very successful. In fact I have friends asking me to make items for them. I see these in many different ways. I tend to have many ideas and visions in my head, sometimes too many. I would like to make a tiara for my daughter, she shows horses and needs some sparkle in her hat! Several of these would make great centerpieces for that. I would like to make a necklace with the various Vintaj pieces I have collected. I can also see these in sets of jewelry. The local fair here has a competition for hand made jewelry I am considering entering a few pieces, and can see these in those pieces. As you can tell, I have a lot happening in my head, with these pieces I would be able to see them come to fruition.

  • I would use a couple to make rings, two for earrings and the rest for either bracelet and/or necklace. So many possibilities

  • ruth

    Wow these are beautiful!! I could make a pair of wire wrapped earrings.

  • Kat

    I would give these to my mom. She loves to make all kinds of jewelry and would most likely make me something pretty. She loves anything that is shiny!

  • I would use these with seed beads or polymer clay! So gorgeous!

  • Christina

    Love, love, love Swarovski crystals. Making a necklace with some right now!

  • Brenna

    wow!!! these are so beautiful!
    I would love to take that Montana Pear shaped stone & create an elaborate oxidized silver wire wrapped pendant!
    Stunning!
