Swarovski Crystal

The Swarovski Crystal range includes crystal glass sculptures and miniatures, jewelry and couture, home decor, and chandeliers. And all sculptures are marked with a logo.

To create crystal glass that lets light refract in a rainbow spectrum, Swarovski coats some of its products with special metallic chemical coatings. Aurora Borealis, or "AB", is one of the most popular coatings, and gives the surface a rainbow appearance. Other coatings are named by the company, Crystal Transmission, Volcano, Aurum, and Dorado. Coatings may be applied to only part of an object; others are coated twice, and thus are designated AB 2X, Dorado 2X etc.

In 2004 Swarovski released Xilion, a copyrighted cut designed to optimise the brilliance of Roses (components with flat backs) and Chatons (diamond cut).

The Swarovski Group also includes Tyrolit (makers of abrasive and cutting tools); Swareflex (reflective and luminous road markings); Signity (synthetic and natural gemstones); and Swarovski Optik (optical instruments such as binoculars and rifle scopes).

The company runs a crystal-themed indoor theme park, Swarovski Kristallwelten (Crystal Worlds) at its original Wattens site (near Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria). The Crystal Worlds centre is fronted by a glass-covered head, the mouth of which is a fountain. The glass-covered Crystal Worlds houses exhibitions related to, or inspired by, the crystals – but do not include explanations of how the famous designs are made, produced or finished.

Swarovski work was recently exhibited at Asia's Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Fair based on the concept of a single continuous beam of fragmented light travelling through a crystal.

Swarovski Crystal Vision - contact lens
by. Dolvin ≈ October 26, 2008
Beautiful Swarovski crystals are everywhere. So brilliant in appearance, they are the perfect adornment for luxury lingerie, designer sandals, leather handbags, and fashionable eyeglasses. But one designer has gone a step further with designer eyewear and actually won second place in a Swarovski crystal competition for his crystal embedded contact lenses.

Crystal Vision Swarovski

Sponsored by designboom and Swarovski, the contest winners’ names and products were published earlier this month with “Sparkle”, by Anthony Mallier of India, taking second prize. This is a wonderfully, inventive creation with Swarovski crystals fused into the outer edge of contact lenses. The crystals radiate beauty and charm giving the eyes a sparkling luster. Because the designer feels that the eyes are the most expressive part of the body and have a message to convey, he felt it more appropriate to bring dazzle to the eyes. Coupled with Swarovski’s magnificent qualities and well sought after appeal, it was a perfect match to pair the crystals with contact lenses.

Winning such a top position in the “Crystal Vision” themed contest is quite prestigious as Anthony was chosen from close to forty-one hundred entries from over ninety countries. In fact, it was so difficult to choose winners that the announcement was delayed in order to adequately review all the deserving entries. Two of the requirements were the ability to package the products and to sell them as over-the-counter items when they are placed in the new SWAROVSKI concept store. Second place prize was Euro 3000 (roughly $4300 US).

beautifull isn't it?

How To Choose Nail Art Designs
by. Dolvin ≈ February 26, 2008
Dolphin Nail ArtNail art and designs are becoming more and more popular, opening a whole spectrum of different options, which range from having nails polished in two colors, to the use of stickers or even jewelry “rhinestones”. Besides, these nail art options can complete an outfit and give a touch of style even to the most conservative women.

One of the most common techniques of nail polish art is based on the usual French manicure, though the different touch consists of replacing the typical white and light pink for the colors every customer chooses. Two different tones of the same color can be combined too. Using stickers, stars, flowers or even jewelry can be applied for giving the nails a perfect touch.

There are many types of nail art to choose from, and depending on how fancy you'd like to get, you can even do a few of them yourself!
  1. Hand-painted designs These are simple designs (usually flowers) created with regular nail polish and usually accented with puffed and/or glitter paint. It's easiest (unless you're ambidextrous) and usually relatively cheap (often $5-10) to have it done in a salon, but it is possible to do it yourself. Simply cut a toothpick in half and dip the newly blunted end into the polish color of your choice. Then make a circle of five tiny dots, forming a flower. Then add a rhinestone or dash of glitter paint for the center, and you've got yourself some snazzy nails!
  2. Texture techniques This is another easy way to jazz up your nails without going to a salon. Texture techniques involve using regular nail polish and simple household objects to create fabulous designs! A good example is polish swirling: To do this, paint on a thick layer of any nail color you'd like (an intense or bright color works best). Then, using a toothpick, dab a few drops of white or cream onto the layer of color (any light color will work well) and swirl the colors together.
  3. Airbrush designs This can be done at home if you purchase a rather expensive machine, or you can have it done at a salon for a relatively low price. Basically, a machine spray paints a design of your choice onto your nails.
  4. Rhinestones These are great as either the centers of flowers, or arranged in a neat row along the edge of your fingernail or toenail.
  5. Decals These are tiny stickers that you place over polished or unpolished nails, and then seal with topcoat.
  6. Piercings Believe it or not, people (presumably those who ran out of body parts to pierce) do pierce their nails. If you're brave, ask your nail technician to pierce one nail on each hand with a small hoop or stud. Just be CAREFUL when you're running your hands through your hair!
So how are you supposed to choose between all those designs, colors, glitters, and jewels? You can base your selection on a number of factors:
  • Season Just as fashion trends change with the seasons, so should your choice of nail art! For spring, think fresh, fun flowers in light colors, such as candy pink. For fall and winter, choose a seasonal airbrush design, like a snowflake!
  • Occasion Nail designs make it fun and easy to stay in tune with the holidays. Try little red hearts for Valentine's Day, or cute little pumpkins for Halloween.
  • Personality Despite all these "rules," don't forget to be yourself and experiment with FUN!
