6 Main Swarovski Crystal Categories
Round Stones start with number 1 and have a pointed back. There are 17 shapes available in this category, but the most popular ones are 1088 and 1122. You might be wondering why some of these stones have a letter U or F next to their numbers. The letter F stands for Foiled, which means that the crystal has metal foiling on the back which reflects the light and produces that so much desirable shine and sparkle. Without the foiling the light just passes through the crystal and that’s what the letter U denotes – Unfoiled. Unfoiled crystals are, therefore, transparent, you can see the surface behind them, which limits their usage.Swarovski 1088 Xirius Chaton
When talking about bestselling crystals in tis category there is one more thing we would like to point out. The round stone 1088 starts with the size PP14 (∅ 2 mm). If you need smaller size, then choose the cut 1028 which starts with PP2 (∅ 0,90 mm) and goes up to PP13 (∅ 1,90 mm). Generally speaking, round stones are most often used for jewelry design, but many fashion designers also use them for textile embellishment by sewing them on the garment with an appropriate sew-on setting. Another way to use these round stones is to glue them with Swarovski Ceralun 2-component clay which is available in 17 colors.
At the bottom of this category in our shop you will find the plastic color chart set with real stones which shows you all the colors that a particular product or product group comes in. Last year we wrote an article explaining Swarovski color variations. In that article you can download all color charts in PDF format so we’re not going to go into too much detail on that here.
Flat Back crystals start with number 2 and have a flat reverse side so that you can glue them on to various surfaces. They come in 60 different shapes and in plenty of colors. For Flat Backs No Hotfix you need an external glue. People use them mainly for nailart, textile, shoes and home décor items. The 2 most popular cuts are 2058, which goes up to size SS 10 (∅ 2,70 – 2,90 mm), and 2088, which starts with SS12 (∅ 2 – 3,20 mm) and goes up to SS48 (∅ 10,90 – 11,30 mm).Swarovski 2058 Flat Back No Hotfix
Flat Backs Hotfix come with a thin layer of a heat sensitive glue on the reverse side. This glues is being activated by the heat of a household iron, hotfix applicator or heat press. This kind of application guarantees a long lasting crystal effect which is so much desirable when it comes embellishing of textile, dance dresses, gymnastic leotards, etc. The 2 most commonly used shapes of Flat Backs No HF are 2038 and 2078.
Depending on the shape, Swarovski sew-on crystals come with 1, 2 or 3 holes and are perfect for sewing onto clothes, wedding dresses, home accessories, etc. You can also combine them with other types of crystals to create one of a kind sparkling jewelry.

Crystal Pearls and Beads
Although both of these start with number 5, they actually fall under 2 different categories.
Crystal Pearls are made of a unique crystal core covered with an innovative coating that creates a silky-smooth rounded surface. They are available in a variety of shapes sizes and colors with the 5810 being the most popular one. Unfortunately, in our B2B shop you cannot see the colors, so again, go to our previously mentioned blog post on Swarovski color charts.Or even better, order a physical color chart, which is not only showing you the colors, but also different shapes and sizes of Swarovski crystal pearls.
