Crystal and Rhinestone are precious stones which are mostly used for decorations and jewelry. Jewelry made from crystal or rhinestone stones are not already jewelry, because both crystal and rhinestone stones are quality stones and they are not expensive to buy. However, there are some differences between them. Crystal is a solid composed of an array of atoms or molecules possessing long-range order and arranged in a pattern which is periodic in three dimensions.

Crystal and Rhinestone are precious stones which are mostly used for decorations and jewelry.
Rhinestones, on the other hand, are also made up of crystals, but some contain acrylic and glass. Another difference is that, crystals are more expensive than rhinestones, this might be because crystals are mostly used for decorations and jewelry making than rhinestones. Or probably as s result of the fact that crystals are generally shining stones and they are more durable i.e., they can be used for a long time, and they will still maintain their priorities.
