In earlier times, rhinestones were cut from the shavings of cut glass found in streams and mines. They were very popular in India before the Crusades; as the king’s tailor wanted to impress him, he stuck the rhinestones on all the kings’ clothes. Imitation diamonds were also very popular among the rich in the Renaissance period.

The art of gluing rhinestones on clothes has remained alive throughout history. But it was only towards the end of the 20th century that rhinestone became very popular all over the world. In the 1960s, it seemed that almost everyone was sticking them on their clothes. A few years later, when iron transfers were introduced for DIY in the arts and crafts, rhinestones had a huge impact on the world.

Today there are two types of rhinestone art. The first is the original sticker, which surprised everyone that the art has lasted so long. The second type is the iron type, which can be heated with a hot iron to melt the glue and make the stone stick to the clothes. Rhinestones can be seen in almost everything sold on the Internet, in local department stores, and even in local craft stores. Most of them are pretty cheap, but it depends on what you are looking for in a set.

Do-it-yourself rhinestone sets used to contain a few fabrics that allowed one person to easily iron the entire patch on a pair of jeans or a shirt. With some kits, the artisan could place the rhinestones in any order and heat the glue with a hot iron. Both are fun, and when the tinsmith is done, he can wear clothes and show them to his friends and family.

Rhinestones are mostly made of glass these days and are only called rhinestones because people use them to decorate their clothes. This was really the only way left for this type of fashion because the demand for real imitation stones soon led to higher prices for the stones, which were no longer usable for people. It also helped to preserve our natural gems. Colored glass has become so popular that iron transfers can be found everywhere.

Fashion companies have used these colored glass rhinestones to make thousands of different types, colors, and shapes for fans all over the world. The fashion world has strongly adopted the use of rhinestones for stage costumes. This is obvious, as the original purpose of using rhinestones was a sign of wealth, glamour, and exuberance.

Today, iron rhinestones can be found in many different facets of everyday life, from clothing to accessories and wedding decorations. Now you understand what iron is in rhinestones and how they are used; and you have also learned about the history of rhinestones.
