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.

Swarovski Color and Trend Inspirations Spring/Summer 2015 – Glamour




There is a continuing trend to beautify clothes with a focus on elaborate detail in design as … “The flirtation with opulence and decadence from last season continues.”

 Other cultures continue to inspire us: exploring our Arab neighbors’ opulent and exquisite detailing, we transfer inspiration from decadent interiors and architecture to adorn our bodies. Sensual, seductive Arabian nights; the exotic and the ordinary merge together to create a veiled and hidden design ethic that speaks to the sensual side of the self.

An exciting combination of the past and future is shown in luxurious and laboriously made heritage fabrics with exquisite crystal borders and embroidered detailing. A wildness is in the outlook, with glamour being redefined into a free and easy style, increasingly linked to the self.

We desire to lose ourselves in spectacular, swaying silhouettes of crystal-adorned cloth to celebrate the simple beauty of being alive, of belonging.




Oriental graphics and architecture inspire the elaborate shape and design of over-the-top jewelry.

The circle symbolizes cycles, new beginnings, and continuity – overtaking the triangle shape that stood for growth and stability.

The continued rise of the tattoo – denoting belonging to a tribe – has crossed into fashion design with the recreation of intricate patterns on clothing.

Accessories have turned to a focus on feet as we envisage the return of the heavily bejeweled sandal or intricate anklets as art forms.

Extravagant Fancy Stones combine with fine crystals to imitate modern oriental patterns. Subtle sparkling elements create opulent design details.

The lines between jewelry and accessories continue to become increasingly blurred, particularly in the head-wear segment.

Harking back to the glamour and opulence of a mystical past, exquisite craftsmanship and intricate detailing in New Segments speak for a renewed interest in the ancient Orient.


Glamour Trend Crystal Color Inspirations

Crystal Iridescent Green Pearls add a sophisticated accent to the dark color pallet, while playing with polar opposite directions of Matt and shine.

The precise cuts of the mini size beads and larger Pendants create a stunning play between light and shadow. Bold oversize shapes create 3D crystal structures for over-the-top sophistication.
