FAQs

Why buy your crystal embellished items from It's Crystalicious®?

We are Australia’s first and only Registered Trademarked specialists in this type of Bespoke service and we were made an Official Branding Partner of SWAROVSKI® in 2010, and now we are an Official Ingredient Branding Partner of Preciosa® crystals, so you know you are getting quality products and no imitations.

Why do I only use Preciosa® Crystals instead of cheaper rhinestones?

I have a contract with Preciosa® crystals to guarantee to use of only their crystals. My Preciosa® Crystals come from directly from Prague and are made from the finest lead crystal on the market. They are cut with such precision for maximum sparkle. The sparkle comes from the light bouncing off the internal surfaces of the lead crystal. Cheaper rhinestones don’t sparkle as much as Preciosa® crystals.

Are your items Authentic?

Yes. All items sold on our website are 100% authentic. All Brand name items and Sneakers are purchase from recommended retailers. 

I saw something on your social media, but I don't see it for sale on your website? 

Almost all the custom pieces we post on our social media are sent to us by the customer. If you see something you like, please send us an Email and we would be more than happy to recreate it for you.

Do the crystals stay on?

Yes, they do as they are attached with an industrial strength adhesive. However, don’t drop it as the item is like Jewellery. We do include spare crystals just in case the odd 1 or 2 come off.

My item was strassed by someone else, can you repair their work?

It's Crystalicious® has repaired a lot of work done by other embellishing businesses that can't quite compete with us and the way we strass an item. Others use cheap materials, larger size crystals or are new to the craft. Please Email us with a photo of your item and we will get back to you on whether we can repair your item. 

 

Why don't you use SWAROVSKI® Crystals anymore?

The reason why our Brand and nearly every other brand around the world doesn't use SWAROVSKI® Crystals anymore is because SWAROVSKI® closed all it's Branding Partner and Wholesale accounts in Australia at the end of October 2020. Unfortunately we were given no warning of this happening and it was quite a shock, as I'd been an Official Branding Partner for more than 10 years.

I had been able to get SWAROVSKI® stock up until the beginning of 2021 from Overseas Wholesalers, as they still have access to limited stock and colours, but it was getting too hard to get the colours I require for your orders. It was time to make the change to a New crystal company so I don't have to disappoint you when I can't get the crystal colour from SWAROVSKI®.

We are now an Ingredient Branding Partner of Preciosa® crystals and I'm so happy I was able to make the change to this company as they now provide the highest quality crystals on the market.
