Re: Fake swarovski crystals
The safest way to assure buying genuine Swarovski crystals is to buy them from a reputable American dealer. Even buying on line is risky. I assume that none of the crystals I buy from China are Swarovski crystals. One China dealer actually offers his beads as imitation.. I think they use the term Swarovski like we use the term silver which could mean the metal or the color. I make it a point to not use the name Swarovski when I offer jewelry for sale unless I am very sure. I do make some pretty jewelry from the fakes.
