American full-ball shells provide a tall, elegant profile nicely suited to bridal and high end apparel applications.

Known as "Half Ball" shells in most of Europe ("Highball" in UK) and "Mushroom" in many parts of Asia.  Foreign dies are still being made, but unfortunately American full-ball dies are no longer in production.  Luckily, many American versions remain in active use and still more are available used.

American full-ball shells do NOT fit standard American half-ball dies and most foreign dies (as always, ask for samples and test before ordering).

Aluminum shells may be used with any button back material.  However, aluminum backs must be paired with aluminum shells.  Button backs sold separately.

We are discussing the possibility of machining new American half-ball dies to accommodate full-ball shells.  Customer interest will be a deciding factor —input and opinions welcome!
