    I tihnk glass will be fine. If you think Swarovski’s are too pricey don’t go with them. The two options do have slightly different purple hues, but the fact is you’re the only one who is going to know that since none of your guests will have looked at the video. So if you’re okay with the color difference I don’t see why it makes any difference

    I think the glass is a good compromise. You still get the look you want, but MUCH less expensive.

    Pretty. IMO Glass is fine it will give you the look you want. Swaroski is nice but with shoes are you really going to notice the difference unless you take the off and hold them next to your face, lol, I dont think so.

    Just to clarify, Crystal is just Glass with Lead in it, so when something is “Crystal Glass”, they’re really just saying that it’s crystal. Swarovski’s differentiator is in their cuts, facets, colors, and the quality of their materials. But if you’re buying Crystal Glass, it is essentially a very similar product to Swarovski Crystals.

    I think the first purple ones you posted look great! I like how the facets are a little narrower than the Swarovski ones.

    I think they look great! And I’m really glad you’re getting to do this project. I was reading through your other thread and, though I didn’t comment, I felt bad that you were having to make so many different compromises about things that you had really wanted.

    Please keep all of us updated on your progress and post pictures too!

    Good luck!!
