I used to be a ballroom dancer so I’m essentially a rhinestone expert!

It really comes down to quality and sparkle. A lot of the cheaper stones look kind of cloudy. Personally I’m going to use a mix of sizes of Crystal AB Swarovskis.

I am strassing my old ballroom shoes with blue cobalt rhinestones. I did not go the Swarowski route due to pricing. I’m still fimishing my shoe and they are sparkly like crazy.

I’m using rhinestones for mine, and so far they are looking gorgeous.  Super sparkly but not blinding!  I ordered my rhinestones from http://www.allstarco.com in Canada.  They have good prices, good color/size selection, and the shipping to the U.S. isn’t bad.

I’m a ballroom dancer too and use precosia rhinestones for my costumes. They are the competition of swarkovski but cheaper. I bought my last lot from Rhinestoneguy.com
