View Full Version : Stones for Vintage Brooches

I've bought a job lot of antique/vintage brooches to give away as wedding favours, but some of them have a few stones missing. The stones are very tiny - about 0.5-1.5 mm and silvery grey in colour.
Does anyone know where I can get my hands on some of these stones ( they have pointed backs), or even what they'd be called so I can start a search - diamante/rhinestone usually seems to just end up finding flat backed stickers.

Thanks
