Vintage Swarovski Crystals 

Swarovski Austrian crystals are unmatched in their quality and elegance. This is the result of their perfect cuts and special polishing which brings out unparalleled brilliance. They are known around the world as the finest full-lead crystals, so if you want your jewelry to be its finest ~ we recommend that you always select Swarovski!

Estate Beads has an extensive collection of vintage crystal beads, and we have listed them by article number, color, and size. These crystals are straight out of their original boxes and are in unused condition.  Over thirty years ago Swarovski switched their numbering process from 2 or 3 digits to 4 digits. Therefore; the article numbers with 2 or 3 digits are the oldest and are a little more expensive.  Please realize all of the items are in limited quantities and there is no guarantee of availability. Orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Enjoy!

Hematite

It is called Hematite on certain colors and satin on others. It is characteristic for the extra sheen it gives to the beads. Hematite 2x is common on colors today.

Satin

This finish is a light hematite coating that is smoky gray. It changes the color of the bead so that it appears slightly darker.

This coating shines in red, and green tones depending on how the light hits. They have different versions; light is just lighter in tone etc. These finishes are not normally used on colored crystal and are not transparent.

Volcano

This coating is silvery on the outside but when viewed through the crystal is multi-colored with reds, blues and purples like a volcano

1 X

2 X
