I am wanting to by some of the rhinestone things you slide on ribbon. Look kind of like a belt buckle but all shiny and pretty!

I can not search for them because I do not even know what they are called. Can anyone help me with the name.....or better yet a link to buy some cheap.....errr...ummm......inexpensive I mean!

There are some great web site that sell this type of thing. Do a search for "cake jewelry" or "cake bling" I can't seem to recall the actual site address. hth

CakeLady1981 - just Google Cake Diamonte Bling and then click Images - and a site like this will come up - showing so many sites and styles of Bling.

I'm guessing the word you might be looking for is "brooch." (I've seen it also spelled "broach," but not as often.)

A brooch is generally a pin with a big jewel in the center, surrounded by many smaller jewels. (Of course cake versions don't have pins...)

Is that what you're talking about?

(And diamantes seems to be the modern word for rhinestones. If there's a difference, I have no idea what!) icon_rolleyes.gif

Over here we spell them either way Diamontes or Diamantes - and its something that shines like a Diamond - but not a Diamond - iykwim.

A Rhinestone to us is any other immitation Gem - (Ruby, Sapphire etc)

Aha! Thank you, Bluehue, for making that distinction. I've learned something new today. Back (WAY back) in my days of gaudy baton-twirling outfits, we just called them clear rhinestones, or pink, or red, or blue... icon_surprised.gif
