We offer the largest range of high quality crystals worldwide from the world's leading brands / manufacturers. Our range includes Swarovski Crystals, Serinity Crystals, Preciosa Crystals and Estella Crystals.
We only sell genuine cut-glass crystals so you can be sure that all of our crystals offer excellent levels of brilliance and sparkle. However, some are more sparkly than others, but they are also more expensive.
We have created a Crystal Comparison Guide which gives an overview and range of ratings for each brand of crystal that we sell.
Yes we do. Bluestreak Crystals are one of very few Swarovski Distribution Partners that remain worldwide, and we continue to sell the entire range of Swarovski Crystals.
However, Swarovski Crystals are only available to pre-approved customers. Please apply online to continue purchasing Swarovski Crystals.
Alternatively we sell a wide range of crystals by Serinity, Preciosa and Estella that are available without any restrictions.
If you are looking for the closest match to Swarovski Crystals, we would recommend Serinity Crystals. They are also made in Austria to the same high quality standards and provide identical brilliance and sparkle to the world's leading brand of crystals.
Crystal When a colour has no effect in or on it, it is the standard version of that colour. Classic Crystal (Foiled) is where the glass is completely colourless and you can see straight through to the silver foiling on the back. The foiling is reflective like the back of a mirror and helps the colour in the glass shine to its fullest potential.
Crystal AB 'AB' is short for ‘Aurora Borealis’, also known as the Northern Lights. This effect has an iridescent coating that covers the top of the crystal making it shimmer like the rainbow, predominantly in hues of pink. Please note: the AB effect can look different depending on the brand of crystals.
You can find a detailed description of all the Crystal colour effects in our Handy Guide To Crystal Colour Effects blog post.
Hotfix Flatback Crystals have a flat reverse side that has been pre-coated with a heat-sensitive glue and they can be applied onto fabrics and materials using an iron (steam turned off) or a hotfix applicator. Hotfix Flatbacks are perfect for adding durable sparkle for segments such as bridal, dance, fashion, film and theatre.
Non Hotfix Flatback Crystals can easily be applied to most surfaces by hand, using one or two component glues which are most suitable for the surface, use and project. Non Hotfix Flatbacks are perfect for adding sparkle for segments such as accessories, crafting, dance, embellishment, fashion, film, nails and theatre.
We sell a wide range of glue for crafting, jewellery making and embellishment and the full range can be found in our Tools & Accessories section.
