The glue or adhesive you choose should be based on the materials being assembled. Two-part epoxy is an ideal adhesive for this application as it works well with non-porous items, will not affect any foil applied to a Swarovski crystal, offers a strong bond for all types of wear and tear and cures to a waterproof finish. For one-project use, choose a 5-minute curing 2-part epoxy. For multiple applications in one sitting, choose a 30- or 90-minute curing time.
G-S Hypo Cement is another adhesive that would work well for gluing crystals (without foil) to a metal finding.
