Swarovski rivoli rhinestones are faceted with 16 different facets coming to a point in the center of the rhinestone. Brilliant light-reflection is possible with a foiled backing that blocks light from going through the crystal. The rivoli shape resembles the point cut of a diamond with the addition of 16 facets in a circle that meet in the center of the rhinestone. Use our high quality Japanese Toho Seed Beads
to make a beaded bezel around this Swarovski crystal rivoli. As you may have noticed, this rhinestone cannot be traditionally strung or glued to a flat surface. Creating a beaded bezel with smaller beads would be an ideal way to showcase this stunning Swarovski component.
