We are working on updating our rhinestone inventory from the 2058 rhinestone to the 2088 rhinestone. Orders will be filled with the 2058 stones if the color you order is in stock. When the 2058 inventory runs out we will fill orders with the NEW 2088 rhinestones. If you have questions or would like to know if you will receive the 2058 or the 2088 stones please contact us.
SWAROVSKI 2088 flatback rhinestones are the NEW Enhanced Cut XIRIUS Rose. Flat Back Crystal Elements are backed with platinum foiling for extra brilliance and protection. This revolutionary crystal is named after Sirius, the brightest star in the Milky Way galaxy, and for good reason—it features the most intricate, gemstone-like cut in the Swarovski lineup taking the crystals one step closer to the diamond. Like all modern Swarovski crystals, the 2088 Xirius flat back is made with the lead-free, superior Advanced Crystal formula, and is manufactured according to the company’s strict socially and environmentally responsible standards.
How to glue:
Use a good glue that is designed for rhinestones. Never use Super Glue or Hot Glue to set Rhinestones, it will change the color of the foil backing. You can also read about gluing techniques on the Swarovski web page by using the link below.
