Half-Drilled, No Hole or Large Hole – Which Swarovski Pearls Are Right for You?

Swarovski pearls are some of the most luxurious synthetic pearls on the market. Helping you to add luxury and elegance to your projects, they come in a huge choice of colours and sizes.

One thing you’ll notice when you’re browsing our Swarovski pearls collection is that they come in half-drilled, no hole and large hole varieties. So, what’s the difference between them, and how do you know which ones are right for your project?


Half-drilled Swarovski pearls

Many of our Swarovski pearls come with a half-drilled design. This means that the hole doesn’t go all the way through the pearl. However, it doesn’t mean the hole is drilled exactly halfway through.

These types of pearls are best used when making small stud earrings, or when adding a pearl to a ring, for example. Half-drilled pearls tend to conceal the fitting, enabling the pearl to stand out more. You’ll need to apply them to peg fittings using a good quality glue.


No hole pearls

Our no hole Swarovski pearls collection is ideal for using in projects where the pearls will be glued. So, you could use them for adding an elegant touch to shoes, mobile phone cases, and even in nail designs.

Our no hole pearls are the smallest Swarovski pearls available, making them very easy to work with. You could also use them to create elegant ring designs, gluing the pearl into the setting.


Large hole pearls

If you’re planning on creating luxury jewellery designs, our large hole pearls are an ideal choice. The hole is designed to be easily threaded, making these types of pearls especially useful for creating necklaces and bracelets.


Choose from a huge range of designs

Once you know which type of hole you need for your projects, it’s time to choose your designs. There are a huge choice of different colours and sizes on offer, guaranteeing something to meet your requirements.

We even have a selection of shaped pearls, for those looking for something a little different. These come in half-drilled or no hole designs, and feature a variety of different shapes for a more unusual finish. Whatever type of projects you’re working on, there's a Swarovski pearl collection to match it perfectly.
