Gold-filled beads and Swarovski crystals are two of the most popular materials used in jewelry making because they both have unique properties that make them stand out. When these two are brought together in jewelry design, they create a look of glamour and luxury that is sure to impress. At Crystal Findings, we not only sell these beads in a wide variety of styles but also carry unique ready-made jewelry pieces created with various combinations of gold-filled and Swarovski crystal beads.
What Are Gold-Filled Beads and How Are They Different from Regular Gold-Plated Beads
Gold-filled beads are made with a layer of real gold that is bonded to a brass core. This makes them much more durable than regular gold-plated beads, which can wear away over time. Gold-filled beads also have a richer and more luxurious look than gold-plated beads, making them a perfect choice for high-end jewelry designs.
Why Are Swarovski Crystals So Popular in Jewelry Making
Swarovski crystals are a popular choice for jewelry making because they have beautiful clarity and sparkle that is unmatched by other crystal brands. They are also known for their durability, which makes them a perfect choice for everyday jewelry designs. Swarovski crystals come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, making it easy to find the perfect crystals for your next jewelry project.
How Do Gold-Filled Beads and Swarovski Crystals Work Together to Create a Beautiful Finished Product?
When gold-filled beads and Swarovski crystals are paired together, they create a beautiful and eye-catching combination. The luxurious look of the gold-filled beads combined with the sparkle and clarity of the Swarovski crystals creates a finished product that is sure to impress. Jewelry makers love to replicate the look of fine jewelry made with gold and diamonds on a budget by using these gold-filled beads and Swarovski crystal beads.

The New York Spring 2020 runways officially wrapped up in September, but our team at Crystal Findings can’t stop talking about it. Experimenting and making different spring 2020 trends your own is one of the most exciting parts about making jewelry and selecting which pieces to wear out to different events, of figuring how to match general 2020 fashion trends to your own personal style. And it does all boil down to what is your personal style and how you want to present yourself in the new year!
So while only you can make that final decision on how you want to stylishly present yourself in 2020, we can offer you some fantastic ready-made jewelry options that will help you succeed. Consider the following great spring trends the fashion world is talking about and the corresponding pieces we have available in our store.
2020 Fashion Trends & the Crystal Findings Collection of Ready-made Jewelry
- Colorful earrings are in. Gold and silver may always be a classic touch, but the New York fashion shows and the word on the street is that come spring 2020, it is going to be bright floral and beaded pieces that are going to be in. At the heart here is the idea of channeling one’s inner kid and having fun by opting for big and colorful earrings. These bright green Swarovski Cyrstal Period Earrings are an excellent example of how stylish a bright spring-color can be.
- Chokers are making a come back. Back in the early 2000s, nothing defined young fashion better than the choker necklace. It didn’t even have to be elaborate for it to be stylish. A simple piece of lace stylishly tied around a person’s neck or a fashion tattoo choker were all that were needed to really take advantage of this stylish trend. While that level of simplicity isn’t quite coming back in, simple chokers and necklaces are. Pieces like this Swarovski Round Cyrstal AB necklace that is designed to be worn snug at the base of one’s neck is a beautiful piece that shows the evolution of this trend from one decade to the next.
Remember, it’s not just what you wear, it’s about how you wear it. One really interesting thing many of the fashion industry’s leading designers did this year at the 2020 spring runways is to send their models down with only one earring. As noted before, those solo ear pieces were big, bright, and certainly eye-catching, but they also displayed how with fashion it isn’t just about what you were, it’s how you wear it.
