Bicones are the most popular of Swarovski's designs. With a hole drilled through the centre they provide much flexibility and are ideal for threading onto bracelets, earrings, necklaces, as well as being sewn onto fabric and garments. A stunning choice for many bridal accessories as well as other diverse markets due to their clarity, range of colours and beautiful sparkle
Beadworks UK is currently in the process of changing its Swarovski Bicone range to the Xillion cut crystal range. This new cut has 24 alternating large and small facets compared to the Bicone which only has 16 regular facets. This new cut adds a much higher brilliance and creates an intense light reflection to each bead, providing a beautiful diamond like appearance.
