Our story... In the mid-1990s, while working in the dance industry, Angie Price saw a need that wasn't being filled. The growing interest in embellishments among performers left an opening for a visionary individual to step in with a great idea. Teaming up with her father, Fred, they set up a business in the back room of the family house and called it Rhinestones Unlimited, offering flat back rhinestones as a foundation.
As the movement grew, so did the business. It wasn't long before they called in the rest of the family, each finding a position to complement their own strengths. First, Angie's brother, Matt, took the lead managing operations. Shortly thereafter, Mama Rhinestone (also known as Sandy) and Matt’s wife, Nicole, came into the picture with the personalities and skills for exceptional customer service. Today, the reach of Rhinestones Unlimited has grown to include western wear, bridal, couture, accessories and performers of every kind in countries all over the world. Thanks to our innovative staff and loyal customers, we have grown to be among the largest rhinestone and costume trim wholesalers in the United States.
Our staff… When work grew, and there were no more family members to fill the positions, the Price family turned to experienced industry professionals to fill in the gaps. The Rhinestones Unlimited employees represent the markets of professional, competitive and recreation dance, ballroom, western wear and equestrian, theater, costume, craft, fashion, floral, graphic design and marketing, even motorcycle chicks!
