Outshine Your Competition When Giving or Marketing Jewelry With This Essential Secret

Let’s face it, the incomparable brilliance and majestic beauty of Swarovski Crystals speak for themselves. Any jewelry designer and admirer can distinguish the unsurpassed superiority that Swarovski has been known for in their 120 years of experience.

People who use Swarovski Crystals in their designs, understand the value of a quality product, so as gift givers and business owners, if you are going the extra mile to create gorgeous jewelry that will be worn and loved for years to come…shouldn’t the gift box reflect that same exceptional beauty?

I emphatically say, YES it should! You should too and here’s why….

Wrapped box

Normally we give gifts in a wrapped box with a bow on top. There’s nothing wrong with this, it’s a perfectly nice way to give a gift.

But if you want to outshine your competition, or want to really make a lasting impression that has an extra special touch of glamour, the box in and of itself becomes a piece of artwork. It shows that you have spent time and effort creating an exceptional piece of jewelry and the presentation is equally stunning!

Here are some beautiful ideas to inspire your creativity.

I absolutely fell in Loooove with this, it’s is one of my favorite ideas for displaying and presenting pearl jewelry! It’s so elegant and is definitely a one of a kind, keep sake item for that special someone.

My grandmother gave me a treasured little book years ago, which I imagine you’re all familiar with called “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” It’s a real gem and a great piece of insight explains that a person’s name, is to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language.

That’s powerful! It’s no wonder why it’s incredibly popular to personalize everything these days, from jewelry to license plates and what better way to add a customized quality to your gifts than engraving their name right on the box! People love to feel special and this is a perfect way to make people feel warm and fuzzy!

Let your creativity stick! Embellishing gift boxes with Swarovski Flatbacks using the Crystal Katana is a captivating and impressive way to create that instant wow factor. The receiver of this gift is sure to light up immediately and think… if what’s inside is even half as stunning as the box, I love it already!

The age old saying “it’s better to give than it is to receive” is absolutely true. You and your customer or special someone, are going to feel great no matter how you present your jewelry gift and if you add a little extra sparkling detail or personal touch, it is sure to be memorable.

Effortless Chic ~ Dainty Layered Necklace Trend Inspiration

Spring

(Spring Photo Compliments of You Tube Spring Relaxation Music)

How exciting  ~ the first signs of Spring have finally sprung here in Colorado! Tiny little apple and cherry buds have just started to emerge and begun basking in the soft spring sunshine. I recently indulged in the most wonderful weekend of making jewelry outside and soaking up the sunshine on my pale face….. it was pure heaven!

The renewal of natures’ beauty renovates my creativity and I crave to make new sparkling beauties for the warmer days to come. To help renew your creativity, I’m exploring beautiful ways to wear the very popular jewelry trend for 2015 ~ The Dainty Layered Necklace Look!

 Effortless chic ~Dainty layers of different necklaces with soft feminine sparkling touches are a very popular jewelry trend for 2015. This gracefully sweet style is created by layering simple chains with small crystal pendants or beads in a gentle and elegant way.

Having fun and getting creative with this trend is what being artistic is all about! I love the idea of mixing all kinds of various elements together. The combination of different sizes with atypical shapes of pearls, crystals and chains, catch the eye in all kinds of ways. The unique off-center style of the Galactic Crystals dance about and draw you in, while the tiny 5040 Rondelles softly accentuate the natural pearls that hang with a graceful fluidity.

Heads Up ~ See The Swarovski Pearl Colors That Are Being Discontinued

Swarovski Pearl Bracelets with Rhinestone Rondelles

(Colorful Swarovski Pearl and Rhinestone Rondelle Bracelets made by Choose Hope)

Swarovski Pearls are very popular among jewelry designers and admirers for many reasons. They are available in a wide range of colors and effects that have an innovative, lustrous pearlescent coating that provides a flawless, silky smooth surface resistant to rubbing, scratching, perfume and perspiration. They are made with a Swarovski Crystal core and are always perfectly symmetrical.

All in all, they bestow a refined sophistication to all designs, especially wedding jewelry and are simply divine!

Swarovski Spring/Summer 2015-16 Trends

PROGRESSIVE (THE NATURE OF STRENGTH)

In uncertain times, a sense of team spirit and the need to pull together is especially important. Little encapsulates this imperative more effectively than sport, so it is unsurprising that sportswear in creative combinations of synthetic materials and crystals should continue its ascent unabated as a symbol of social cohesion.

Jewelry shapes and materials are referenced but with an edgy, contemporary twist. Minimalist, geometric and smooth shapes serve as easy-to-wear, everyday adornments. Dynamic, multifunctional jewelry pieces suit an active lifestyle. Pearls are received with a contemporary approach and matt surfaces are juxtaposed with translucent and opaque crystals.

THE BLOSSOMING OF HAPPINESS (The Classic Trend)

Swarovski Crystal New Innovations Spring/Summer 2016 Jewelry, Color and Fashion Trends

Swarovski_Crystal_New_Innovations_Spring_Summer_2016_The_Blossming_of_Happiness

Spring has long been a metaphor for renewal, with new growth appearing even after the harshest winters. This is reflected in floral pastels, with a dreamy new Blush Rose color reminiscent of fancy pink diamonds, mixed with mellow green, noble burgundy and pale primrose yellow, with cool steel blue adding an elegant twist.

Swarovski_Color_Blush_Rose

Pink is a Key Color Trend for Spring/Summer 2016

The new Swarovski color Blush Rose is an important development according to the color trend forecasts, which name pink as the key color for the coming season. In color psychology, pink is a sigh of hope. It is a positive color and inspiring warm and comforting feelings and a sense of a silver lining on the horizon. With Blush Rose, Swarovski introduces its own graceful, soft and dreamy, dusty pink hue that is reminiscent of highly prized fancy pink diamonds.

Swarovski Crystal Blush Rose New Color Spring Summer 2016 Innovations

Color Description and Pairing

Blush Rose creates a modern and sophisticated classic look with a mellow, feminine touch. Blush Rose is a universal, feminine color that can beautifully soften a neutral or gray color palette, tone down juicy summer bright, and lighten up dense and rich golden or dark hues.

Blush_Rose_Color

Its sophisticated radiance freshens up foggy opals and patina crystals. This very feminine hue symbolizing love, harmony, and joy for life – can be easily be combined both with warmer and cooler tones, which makes it the perfect addition to the new trend color palette.

New_Swarovski_Crystal_Lacquer_Pastel_effects

Pastel Colors are a Predominant Color Trend for the Season

With pastel being the “it”-color of the season, Swarovski offers an entirely new premium coating palette, and with it a fresh take on pastel colors in cut crystal. The delicate powdery colors of the Pastel Crystal LacquerPRO effect answer the continuing trend for vintage and washed-out looks. Their subtle color range freshens up retro-inspired designs and adds a feminine touch to timeless classics.

Swarovski_crystal_pastel_effects_New_Innovations_Spring_Summer_2016

Color Description and Pairing

A tender color palette if there ever was one, the new Pastel Crystal LacquerPRO effects (Crystal Powder Yellow, Crystal Powder Green, Crystal Powder Rose, and Crystal Powder Blue, Crystal Powder Grey) represent the strong new design direction of softer, opalescent hues, while at the same time offering a more modern interpretation of the pastel classic – and an entirely new premium coating within the Swarovski assortment!

Subtly elegant with a hint of nostalgia, sugary sweet yet with a modern update due to the powder finish – the Pastel Crystal LacquerPRO effect palette evokes soft pop, retro-inspired trends, and filigree designs predestined for spring.

The pastel accents of the Pastel LacquerPRO Effect subtly offset the bright summery crystals, creating a bold contrast between matt and shine. Powdery hues, both in crystal and pearls, are perfect for washed-out and sun-bleached pastel palettes, and also add a modern touch to monochromatic, tone-on-tone color combinations.

 Swarovski_Floral_jewelry

Continuing Classic Trends

 Classic designs are updated with geometric simplicity: origami-inspired effects are an important design component, with varied sizes of precise modular crystal shapes mirroring the complexity of floral anatomy.

Swarovski_4785-Crystal_Luminous_Green

Storytelling and meaningful consumption have become important purchase drivers. Providing an ideal base for nature-inspired patterns, the traditional symbolism of the new Clover Fancy Stone offers both a charming jewelry component and talisman in one. The Clover Fancy Stone represents a timeless, instantly recognizable symbol of good fortune. It is a cheerful addition to sophisticated classic styles with a modern twist – from playfully small everyday accessories to large statement evening attire.
