This is the time to shine.

Some of the newest innovations are shown below with links.


 The demand for modern opulence is met with
a stunning new color: Iris.
Paler than Amethyst, yet blazing more intensely than Light Amethyst, it is an indulgent, elegant purple with a new-luxe note. Fused with color-rich spring florals or teamed with the Amethyst palette, it creates sweeping, eye-catching degradé effects.

Other brilliant partners for Iris are the new Pearl colors, Crystal Iridescent Dreamy Rose Pearl and Dreamy Blue Pearl.
Their soft, fresh radiance brings a sophisticated enchantment to minimalist designs, especially when teamed with the existing natural Pearl palette.
New Pear Cut Pendant
The modern, multilayered Pear Cut Pendant boasts 44 facets, a reduced pointed tip on the reverse, and an optimal table size on the front.
An expansion of the Gem Cut family, its unfoiled gemstone optic removes the need for Settings, making it lightweight and perfectly suited to fine-jewelry looks, including standalone pendants in open-back designs.
Sharing the same color range as Birthstones and available in a variety of sizes, it offers exciting design possibilities for jewelry, DIY, apparel and accessories.
Highly individual designs become more achievable with the new Ignite Effect. An unfoiled option that still maintains a vibrant sparkle, it’s like no other product on the market. Enabling open-back settings to be used, it offers new ways to imitate fine jewelry looks, making it brilliantly versatile.
New Flat Backs
The Xirius Rose's superbly brilliant cut, increased number of facets, and faultless precision, makes it the perfect component for every style, so no wonder this crystal variant has been added to the popular Xirius family. Our new additions are here.
Flat Backs Hotfix are loose crystal elements with a flat reverse side that have been pre-coated with a heat sensitive glue. These Flat Backs can be easily applied using heat to produce a durable and long-lasting crystal effect. Linked here.
Flat Backs No Hotfix are loose crystal elements backed with platinum foiling for extra brilliance and protection. These Flat Backs are easy to apply and are available in a multitude of sizes, colors, shapes, and cuts. Linked here.
