Which rhinestone color should I use?
I sometimes get questions about selecting the perfect color for specific projects. Generally, it’s more of a preference of how you want your piece to look, but there are a few things to consider when selecting your color. If possible, use a rhinestone color chart to help you with your choice.
All rhinestones provide sparkle but choosing the color will determine whether the rhinestone will stand out or blend in with the surrounding color.
Crystal is a clear rhinestone that will look great with any color. Here, crystal is shown on different color backgrounds.
Crystal AB is a clear rhinestone with an Aurore Boreale (AB) coating that gives the rhinestone a rainbow look. AB rhinestones are great at reflecting off the surrounding color.
Choosing a rhinestone the same color as the background will provide sparkle while blending in. A contrasting color will stand out while providing sparkle.
AB colors are the original color with the AB coating and this adds a bit of pop to the rhinestone so that how the light hits the rhinestone will depend on whether it stands out or blends in.
