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 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.

Swarovski Jet Hematite 2X Ring

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.
