Rhinestones - Rhinestuds - Nailheads


Rhinestones, Rhinestuds and Nailheads are all types of heat transfers that you can apply solo or in combination with other decorating techniques to create a unique look for your garment.  All three stones can come in a variety of shapes and sizes and colors.  Understanding the difference of each will help you make the best selection for your project.


Rhinestones are transparent with a mirrored backing.  The transparency allows the light to pass through it mimicking the shimmer and shine of a diamond giving your garment a fancy or more upscale look.  Rhinestones come in a wide array of colors, shapes and sizes.


Rhinestuds differ from Rhinestones in that they are not transparent.  Rhinestuds do not offer the shimmer and shine of a diamond, however; there is a reflective coating on Rhinestuds for a more muted shine.  Rhinestuds also come in a wide array of colors, shapes and sizes.


Nailheads are typically made of brass.  With nailheads being made of a solid material they do not have a shimmer or reflective quality to them.  Nailheads come in a wide array of color, shapes and sizes.
