Default Swarovski Crystals

Anyone know a good source? My 'almost' daughter in law wants earrings for her wedding, and you know... I want them to be exactly what she is looking for. So I'm hunting for the correct crystals. I can't find the exact color (peridot) in the exact shape. 8mm flat briolette. So I'm going to the jewelry experts here to see if anyone knows where I can hunt for them.
Thanks!
Susan

thanks it isn't. But I'm starting to think they don't make what we are looking for.

I have used Swarovski flat briolettes #6012 but a quick search didn't find any in Peridot. Maybe a peridot CZ or gemstone bead would work?
I don't know this seller, it just popped up in search.

Blue Mud has been my go-to for Swarkies etc for the past several years. Perhaps they will have what you are looking for? Best of luck, and it hope you are able to make exactly what you are envisioning!

It looks to me like Swarovski doesn't use "peridot" as a color name - but olivine is pretty close:

Fire Mountain has REAL peridot briolettes.

From a mineral point of view peridot and olivine are the same thing.
Rainbow of Light has flat briolettes 11mm in olivine
http://rainbowsoflight.com/swarovski...ndant-olivine/
(special order, in 144 (factory) package size only)
and 15mm ones in packages of 72 pieces, also special order:
