Sparkling Swarovski

I've been watching Project Accessory and drooling over the dishes of gleaming crystals available to the contestants on the show.

The name is famous, yet frequently spelled wrong. Swarovski crystals are the industry standard in luxe sparkle. You can read their fascinating history here.

The earrings above are a mysterious shade of green that Swarovski calls Olivine. The teardrop-shaped cut of the crystal is called briolette. These have a sterling earwire and cast pewter loops.

$26 a pair, crystal is 15mm, available in our store and online here.
