Swarovski Crystal Chatons are faceted stones with no holes that are backed with a mirror-like foil coating to create extra dimension and sparkle. Chatons come in a large variety of sizes. Smaller sizes are often used in costume jewelry, they are frequently glued into settings to create a sparkly effect.
Eureka Crystal Beads, an Authorized Swarovski Reseller carries the largest selection of Crystal Chatons in 8mm.
Swarovski Crystal Chatons have a patented Xillion cut, similar to a princess cut on a diamond. Chatons are not flat in the back but instead they are pointed and quite deep with the dominant flat crystal face on the front surrounded with symmetrical cuts on the side and the back.
