The classic diamond shape of this Mini Rhombus shape is a beautiful and delicate new addition to the mini bead assortment. This is a timeless style that offers a sophisticated quality with brilliant multi-layered facets that adds remarkable versatility to designs.
The Mini Rhombus Bead comes in a classic diamond shape and is a beautifully delicate addition to the mini bead portfolio. Offered with the same sophisticated, brilliantly multi-layered cut, and in the same 6 mm and 8 mm sizes as the popular Round, Oval, and Square minis, it also comes in 11 effects and 8 colors. Its small size makes it the perfect choice for layering into delicate and intricate looks, or it can be used to offset bigger stones. This versatility extends to both masculine and feminine designs, and it looks great when used to add a striking sheen to graphic patterns.
How to use: Beading, stringing, wiring, sewing, weaving – everything is possible with the Mini Rhombus Bead. Combine with the existing mini bead portfolio (its hole length matches the Swarovski 5052 Mini Round Beads and the Swarovski 5053 Mini Square Beads) to create opulent designs using many beads, or subtle highlights using a select few.
As a versatile cut offering myriad combination possibilities in size, pattern, and color, the classic rectangle shape that the Mini Rectangle Bead offers, is ideal for use in DIY designs, and to create precious highlights in jewelry.

Convincing as a minimalist and refined design element, it looks great as a standalone feature or in combination with other materials and will never go out of fashion. Although each cut has its unique fascination, the Mini Rectangle is offered in the same range of colors as other mini beads to make the mini bead family even more dazzling in its unity.

This brand new design from Swarovski is a modern interpretation of a classic cut displaying dramatic and spectacular chaton-cut faceting structure fashioned into a drop pendant that is perfect for both elegant and futuristic designs. For the first time its colorful effect is applied from the top, rather than the side, to achieve a homogenous look. When seen from the side it has a classic appearance, but when viewed from below, the masterpiece of a dazzling kaleidoscopic effect is revealed.
Its conical shape adds sculptural volume, which meets the current demand for architectural pieces and progressive 3D design. It is particularly effective when used to create stand-out statement pieces, and when combined with smaller sizes its water-inspired droplet shape has an exciting nature-tech appearance. This exceptional style can be utilized in necklaces, earrings and eye-catching charm bracelets that are available in a 14 mm, 24 mm, 32 mm and a 33 mm.
The kaleidoscopic complexity of the XIRIUS cut finds its match only in nature’s miracles: captured in the new XIRIUS Raindrop Pendant is the beauty and wonder of a fresh summer shower. The drop motif is the perfect embodiment of Swarovski’s most brilliant crystal. Look at it from the side—a classic. Look at it from below—a phenomenon!
