When we hear the word crystal, the first thing that pops into our heads is guaranteed to be Swarovski. Creating crystals since 1892, it’s become a fashion institution that’s everyone’s go-to for instant bling.
Adorning everyone from Bond girls to Victoria’s Secret models (their 2014 show had no less than 29 looks decorated with Swarovski crystals), Swarovski is the ultimate indulgence for that extra bit of sparkle.
So when we caught a sneaky glimpse of their latest Spring collection, it’s fair to say we were pretty excited. Totally gorge jewellery at seriously affordable prices? Don’t mind if we do!
With edgy ear cuff designs and a whole load of crazy colour crystals, this is the coolest collection we’ve seen from Swarovski. Taking on pretty much every major catwalk trend for SS15, we can’t get enough of their rose gold Celestine bangle (above). Minimal, classy and with just a touch of bling, we’ll be wearing ours with a chic LBD or stacking it with mixed metals for major arm candy.
Statement jewellery more your thing? Never fear, Swarovski have got it sorted. Their ginormous Citrus necklace (above) isn’t one for wallflowers. With five giant teardrop shape crystals in a gold caging, it’s perfect for adding instant bling to any outfit.
Venturing further outside the box than previous collections, Swarovski’s power pastel and pearl ring could be mistaken for Dior fine jewellery any day. Packing in as many crystals as possible and topping it off with a string of pearls, their Calista ring is flying straight to the top of our lust list. That and the Stardust necklace, obvs. The newest (and coolest) addition to the collection, think a starry night sky meets Kate Moss’ jewellery collection and you’re somewhere close to how awesome this necklace is. Trust us, you’ll be getting more compliments than you can handle.
