I get asked this question alot as brides are unsure whether they should choose clear or AB crystals.

The simple answer is AB is named after Aurora Borealis and the crystals have a coating over half of the bead which really reflects the light. The sparkle has a rainbow effect on the beads……imagine the effect spilt oil has on water.

The rainbow effect can be seen in the above photo.

So if you would like your jewellery or accessories to have a rainbow effect sparkle choose AB crystal if you would like a clear sparkle go for the clear beads.
