Plated-metal settings and Swarovski crystal fancy stones fit together perfectly for creating easy and elegant jewelry lines for Christmas sales. With the selection of colorful faceted crystals and corresponding settings in platings of gold, silver, copper and gunmetal, jewelry artists can create customized jewelry providing high-perceived value.

"Faceted stones sparkle their way through the season in an array of treasure chest worthy creations, from look-of-real styles to over-the-top faux styles." - Accessories Online Trend Finder
Display the settings and crystals together, allowing customers to choose their favorite setting along with their favorite color and style of crystal fancy stone. Designers and store owners can adhere the crystals to the settings easily with a strong adhesive or epoxy while the customer waits. Creating customized designs on the spot can be a big draw during holiday bazaars and artisan markets as holiday shoppers lean towards purchasing personalized Christmas gifts for loved ones. Instant jewelry can also be designed to represent dates as the fancy stones are available in colors similar to birthstones. Almost Instant Jewelry settings filled with birthstone colors can indicate not only the birth month of the recipient--multi-stone settings can be used to indicate birthstones of family groupings, children or grandchildren. These multi-generational styles can be purchased now and given for birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine's Day, Mothers' Day and more!

Each plated-metal setting is calibrated to fit specific foil-backed Swarovski fancy stones and flat backs. The settings feature consistent shapes, finishes and calibrated sizes.
