Let's have a little fun with our historical costumes. Dress your 18th century shoes with Fleur rhinestone buckles in *rainbow* plating. These amazing, limited release shoe buckles sparkle with glass teardrop-shaped rhinestones nestled in a subtle iridescent metallic rainbow frame.

A re-review - much better!

AD replaced my older buckles with the missing/loose stones with a new set from a newer run made in a different factory. They arrived in great condition! Thank you so much!

Pretty, but the stones fall out way too easily...

They arrived with a stone already missing. It wasn't even loose in the bag, just missing. When i took them out to install them on my shoes, another stone fell off before I could even begin. For the price, this is super-disappointing.

Hi Kali, that certainly shouldn't have happened and we're happy to make it right!

Beautiful Dress Buckles

Lovely buckles to complete a collection of 18th century latchet shoes.
I had difficulty with setting my first pair, but it gets easier each time. I use a bone awl, as I find it sturdier than the modern sewing awls from places like JoAnns. The detailed instructions and video are most helpful.

Fleur review

I love how elegant and sparkly these buckles are! My only complaint is that when they arrived one of the rhinestones had fallen out. I superglued it back on, but I've since had about 4 more fall out even though I try to be gentle with them. A little disappointing considering the price, but maybe I just received a defective pair. They still look great though!
