Some knobs are cut like diamond solitaires, while others have etched snowflake patterns. Some are made into swirls or faceted rectangles that resemble emerald cut gems. Crystal knobs and pulls also come in colors such as amber, or have a play of one or two colors such as blue and lavender. These particular colors make the knob resemble a gemstone called an alexandrite.

Knobs also come in colors of brilliant green, ruby red, deep blue, aqua and pink. They can be square or octagonal. Some knobs have a faceted crystal set in a zinc base much like a bevel set jewel. Many of the knobs or pulls have bases of solid brass or nickel. The pulls also have bolts of brass or nickel.

Bar pulls are also decorated with Swarovski crystals in channel or pavé settings. A bracelet pull made of cast metal can sport a single crystal in its center, again like a diamond solitaire.
