Stunning Metallic Effects and High-Sheen Jewelry Trends

Swarovski Crystal Metallic Jewelry

A very popular theme or trend this year in the fashion and jewelry industry has been the high-shine, standout appeal of Metallic’s. People are instantly drawn to the striking effects of gold, silver and copper tones and are wearing them in everything from clothing to shoes to purses and especially jewelry accessories such as this Crystal Metallic Light Gold heart ring made from “Crystal Rocks”.

Swarovski Crystal Iridescent Green Earrings

The Swarovski Metallic Effects are the perfect dramatic coating that bring a provocative edge to the opulent shine of crystals. Shining out from the extensive Swarovski color assortment is the Crystal Iridescent Green, which was the first dual-tone Metallic Effect created.

Swarovski Crystal Metallic Blue 2X Jewelry

Swarovski has created a few exceptionally unique Effects along with the complimentary 2X Coating. Generally the Effect is a two-toned look and the 2X counterpart is the fully coated brighter version. Completing this sensational Metallic trend for high-sheen designs are the following Effects. The Crystal Metallic Blue 2X is a bright and vibrant blue that dazzles.

The Crystal Metallic Light Gold provides a solid gold  look on half of the bead and a dark grayish Black Diamond look on the other side, and the Crystal Metallic Light Gold 2X for a fully coated Light Gold Metallic shine like these Xilion Bicone Beaded earrings. This is similar to Crystal Dorado and Crystal Dorado 2X which has a little more copper influence. These Metallic finishes are both slightly darker than the bright 24K gold plated Crystal Aurum 2X.

Crystal CAL Silver Jewelry Swarovski Crystal

The Crystal CAL which stands for Crystal Comet Argent Light and the fully coated version the CAL 2X which is the closest color to a bright sterling silver look. Crystal CAL is a bead where half is clear crystal and the other half is a solid silver finish and the CAL 2X is a fully solid silver toned mirrored look. These earrings are made with the Swarovski 4139 Round Ring Bead in Crystal CAL with silver accents.

The Jet Hematite and Jet Hematite 2X are extremely popular. They always have been and I suspect they always will be. Everyone loves black, it’s as simple as that. It will always be in style and compliments virtually everything. This stunning Hematite effect adds a sophisticated glamour to the regular color Jet. Create designs with this extraordinary Effect along with the two-toned Crystal Silver Night, which both provide a dramatic focus of fascination.

DIY Swarovski Crystal Charm Bracelet Design and Instructions

DIY Swarovski Crystal Charm Bracelet Design and Instructions below.

I was sitting in the middle seat of an airplane the other day chatting with the people next to me and the gentleman to my left complimented me on my Swarovski crystal bracelets which grabbed the attention of the young lady to my right.

She perked up and said enthusiastically, oh yes gorgeous, I love Swarovski crystals!

It’s certainly wonderful to meet people who love and admire Swarovski Crystal Beads as much as I do. They were very impressed that I had made the jewelry myself, which I have to admit, felt really great that they appreciated my designs so much. It got me thinking about the status of the Swarovski brand. I suppose the age old saying “you get what you pay for” really applies to crystals. Yes, Swarovski is a higher end product because of its superior quality, clarity and faceting structure, yet it remains affordable to many people, of whom especially value excellence. People appreciate and are always drawn to exceptional products.

People have also truly embraced the idea that they can do many things themselves. The DIY market has exploded in popularity recently and it’s because when you make something yourself, there is an added benefit of feeling talented, skillful and capable of achieving things on your own.

Self sufficiency, now that is universally a very powerful feeling!

There is a genuine sense of pride when you take the rains and accomplish things yourself! You automatically infuse more value into what you have done, you appreciate it more and the enthusiasm that comes from creating something beautiful is poured into your next project, the next and the next. You come to the realization that you yourself are creating a continuous cycle of creativity, joy and self expression that is fun and immensely rewarding!
