Bicone, meaning double cone or bi-cone, are beautiful, multi-faceted beads. This shape has been made popular by the Swarovski brand with their Xilion Bicone Beads, which have been cut with extra facets for optimum light refraction, and it's this that gives them their intense and brilliant sparkle. Our bicones are available in a great range of sizes, from the teeniest 2.5mm crystals to a bold 10mm in size as well as a phenomenal range of colours and finishes from simple crystal, to pastels, primaries, deep, exotic shades and fabulous shimmering blends!
Swarovski Bicones come in a glorious range of finishes, which can be a little daunting to understand if you're not used to the terminology, so here's a little guide to give you a hand:
This versatile shape is extremely popular and works in so many different designs from the delicate and simple to the grand, haute couture and from intricate beadweaving to stunning wedding pieces.
