Swarovski stops crystal supply April 30, 2021 20:26

Swarovski are set to stop there crystal supply to many accounts as part of a new strategy.
The Global
crystal and jewellery business Swarovski is to stop supplying its loose crystals and gemstones to other jewellery brands and third-party re-sellers as part of a business “transformation programme.

According to Bloomberg, the new CEO Robert Buchbauer, himself a member of the dynasty, is trying to push through plans to make the company slimmer by shrinking low margin mass market products and shift focus to more profitable ones.  The turnaround plan is expected to take a few years. Not all the family are in agreement but Buchbauer is likely to prevail. He believes these steps are necessary for the long term survival of the company.  

“It’s very painful for everybody, but we have to take the steps that we should have taken years ago,” said Buchbauer, 54. In the future, Swarovski will focus on higher quality products with unique designs rather than trying to offer everything for everybody, he said. “Swarovski crystals on a 10-euro T-shirt don’t add to our profitability and hurt our brand image.”

Add some sparkle November 6, 2020 10:40

Well this month at Rhinestone HQ we have been keeping very busy by making many accessories such as earrings hair-packs and Irish dance buckles.

We have had lots of bespoke orders using many of our beautiful coloured rhinestones , we have so many lovely colours to choose from. Lots of different shades of pink have proved very popular.

did you know that Irish dance in its current form developed from various influences such as Native Irish dance, French quadrilles and English country dancing. Dance was taught by "travelling dance masters" across Ireland in the 17th-18th century, and separate dance forms developed according to regional practice and differing purposes.

click on the next link to check out our lovely range of buckles. We also have some in the Sale too .

Here at rhinestone hq we have seen a rise in the sale of our dance accessories, from earrings for all dance genres to Buckles and number clips for Irish Dancers. We love that dancers are still working hard towards there goals and practising hard.

many are also repairing and refreshing there costumes and dresses

Sadly due to covid-19 , competitions as we know them are on hold with online competitions now being the new norm. so getting glammed up to compete online means you can still shine with some added sparkle.
We have spoken to many dancers who also love to practise whilst still enjoying a bit of sparkle !!
Keep up the hard work and enjoy your Buckles earrings hair packs and sparkles. 
Stay safe and well.
