Every years Swarovski Gemstones™ brings out a few new innovations, which are stones that are made from new materials, have new colors or have new cuts.
Created Stones refer to man-made stones (esp. Cubic Zirconia, Synthetic Stones & Nano Stones) used most frequently for Jewelry production, but occasionally also for other applications. Created Stones are cut on Swarovski automated machines and are regarded as the best in the trade.
Genuine Gemstones are natural stones like Sapphire, Topaz, Amethyst, Citrine, Peridot, Rhodolite, Smoky Quartz, Black Spinel and Marcasite used mostly for Jewelry production, but can also be used for many other applications. These stones are cut to perfection by Swarovski, and and are sorted and matched by color and quality.
Components are pre-set jewelry stones. Components allow a jeweler to better set Swarovski stones on their finished jewelry products.
