Different Color Effects for Colored Rhinestones
Color rhinestones come in a variety of different finishes. Here’s a list of the most popular:
Clear Rhinestones (Transparent White)
Transparent rhinestones are the industry standard. These clear rhinestones have a classic look and are made to resemble a diamond. Swarovski crystal, glass and plastics like acrylic and resin can all be used to make clear rhinestones.
Transparent Colored Rhinestones
Transparent color rhinestones are made in the same way as clear rhinestones and have a similar sparkly finish. The only difference is that these rhinestones come in a range of colors.
AB Color Rhinestones
AB color rhinestones are named after the aurora borealis (or northern lights). And they’re made by applying an iridescent coating onto a clear rhinestone. This gives a multi-color, rainbow effect. Crystal AB and Crystal Volcano are both types of AB coated rhinestones.

Are all Color Effects Available in All Rhinestone Materials?
Crystal and glass are usually made into transparent color and classic clear rhinestones. They look like diamonds or gemstones.
If you’re looking for a more unique effect, acrylic or resin plastic is the way to go. With these materials it’s possible to create a much greater variety of colors and effects. This is why you’ll only find animal print, ceramic, marble and sprayed rhinestones made from a plastic material.
