Frequently Asked Questions:
What are swarovski crystals?
Swarovski Crystals are one of the world’s best quality of manmade crystal. Manufactured in Austria, the Swarovski brand has become synonymous with excellence with over 120 years of experience in creating beautiful crystal colors, finishes, and stunning precision cuts that are always on the forefront at the intersection of high fashion and cutting edge technology. The big deal about Swarovski is consistency. Glass and crystal manufacturing is a really complex process and every batch has the potential to come out just slightly different like with fabric or yarn dye lots. Swarovski has standardized their process to such an extent that you can buy the same color bead today and it will match perfectly with that color even if you bought it years ago. This makes life so much easier for designers and jewelers because you are virtually guaranteed to get any replacement item and it will be exactly the same so you can fix vintage jewelry or replicate your designs exactly without worrying that one batch of bicones won’t look right with the batch you have on hand. There are other, less famous, brands out there that have the same precise quality such as ELITE Eureka Crystal, and will get you the same results but Swarovski is by far the oldest and most famous brand of crystal.
Are Swarovski crystals real?
Swarovski crystals are high-quality manufactured crystals. The word ‘crystal’ is used for both natural mineral stones like quartz or diamonds which have a crystalline atomic structure (their atoms lock together in neat rows which creates those beautiful sharp edges and smooth facets) as well as for a type of extra sparkly glass such as the kind used to make decorative stemware, cut crystal bowls and chandelier parts like the famous Waterford Crystal. Swarovski crystals are made of the latter, they are a type of crystal glass that is specifically designed to be highly refractive, much more brilliant and sparkly than normal glass as well as harder than glass which allows it to be cut with more precise and sharper edged facets. The way this clarity and brilliance is achieved is through the addition of lead oxide to the glass while is still molten and liquid. Although lead is known to be a harmful heavy metal, the amount used in Swarovski crystal is minimal and Swarovski crystals are 100% safe to wear.
How much are Swarovski crystals?
Swarovski crystals are the top quality of manufactured man made ccrystalsbut they are much less expensive than diamonds or even cubic zirconia. You can get beautiful brilliant sparkle with Swarovski for a fraction of the cost. Eureka offers Swarovski crystal bicone beads, pendants, drops as well as fancy stones and chatons at excellent prices. Check out our full selection to find the best deal on Swarovski.
How to clean Swarovski crystals?
The best way to clean Swarovski crystals is to rub them gently with a soft, lint free microfiber cloth like the kind you would use to clean eyeglasses. This will remove any fingerprints, oils or small amounts of grime. If your Swarovski crystals are dirtier, you can put them in lukewarm water with a tiny drop of mild dish detergent to soak and then use a soft bristled brush to remove any stubborn dirt or grime. Then dry your crystals with a soft lint free cloth.
Where to buy Swarovski crystals in bulk?

Why are Swarovski crystals so expensive?
Like any high end brand name product, Swarovski Crystals are pricier than other brands of crystals. The reason for this is that Swarovski has an unmatched level of quality to their crystals that is very hard to replicate with less expensive brands. Sure you can buy similar looking crystals online from somewhere in China and some of them might even be quite lovely but due to the nature of glass and crystal manufacture, it’s typical for these products to vary in color and clarity from batch to batch. For some jewelry designers, this isn’t a big problem but for others consistency in the look, clarity and color of the crystal is imperative and Swarovski delivers this kind of consistency with amazing precision. As well they should since they have had 120 years to get their formulas just right. When you buy genuine Swarovski products you know exactly what you will be getting and you can be sure that colors will match whether your beads were bought on the same day or months and even years apart. Add to this, constant innovations in creating brilliant new kinds of cuts that showcase all the sparkle of the crystal as well as high quality finishes that don’t come off, you can see the reason why it is more expensive. With crystal like with everything else in life, you get what you pay for and with Swarovski, you are getting the best quality on the market. Whether you need the best quality of course is up to you. Eureka offers a variety of crystal brands to satisfy every need and every budget from the high quality of Swarovski Crystals, ELITE Eureka Crystals and Preciosa Crystals to more affordable but just as beautiful Krakvoski crystal stones and pearls.
