WTB. Cobalto gem
 
Looking for the little blue gem that likes to fall off of Campagnolo Cobalto brake calipers. I really want an original gem, not a reproduction as they never look quite right when paired with originals.

Willing to pay or trade.

Thanks!

I think it was @jimmuller who found some very acceptable substitutes for these. ;)

A lovely substitute but not the original dome. I found some blue Swarovski crystals from a jewelry parts supplier, faceted, flat back, 8.6mm diameter. I was hoping to find 10mm. Cost about $3.50 for a packet of six!

From today's ride:

They sparkle and flash and not a single soul stopped me to compliment my brakes. :(

I found my source, in case anyone is interested. Actually I found it whether anyone is interested or not.

These are the best copies Iíve seen as the jewel extends out to edge like the originals. Nice profile as well.

They are too busy admiring your choice of tires. Nice tires!
