There are many greens to choose from in the Swarovski world and as the color becomes deeper and richer there are subtle differences within each one to give you a distinct look for each new design. The amalgamation of the deep green tones along with a hit of lime color creates a naturally rich ensemble to Olivine, making it as one of the most popular colors Swarovski has made. Olivine Satin is a deeper hue of Olivine, one that has a slight silvery finish providing an antique appearance and one that comes alive in the fall and winter months. Khaki is similar to Olivine, but is a little more muted and doesn’t have as much yellow infused. Fern Green resembles a blade of grass with its vibrant accents and the new Dark Green Moss color has deeper richer expression.
