Swarovski Introduces the new XIRIUS Flatback Rhinestone

Meet Xirius Rose, the latest flat back cut from Swarovski!

This revolutionary crystal is named after Sirius, the brightest star in the Milky Way galaxy, and for good reason—it features the most intricate, gemstone-like cut in the Swarovski lineup.

The Xirius cut takes the world one step closer to the vision of founder Daniel Swrovski: to create a diamond for every woman. Like all modern Swarovski crystals, the 2088 Xirius flat back is made with the lead-free, superior Advanced Crystal formula, and is manufactured according to the company’s strict socially and environmentally responsible standards.
