February 5th, 2013 · 12 Comments

SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS has just released news about their Innovations for Spring/Summer 2014 and we’re here to give you the scoop! This season has been labeled “The Female Shift.” The new image of woman is one who defies labels and takes on new roles. She embraces all disciplines, from literature to science and politics. This multifaceted woman is exemplified by Swarovski through innovative new colors and shapes that break the rules.

New Shapes

Lemon Fancy Stone

Lemon Fancy Stone

The perfect blend of balance, the Lemon Fancy Stone presents a refreshing new design. It combines the classic shape of the Navette bead with the elegant facets from the Chessboard, creating a flawless, streamlined look.

Meteor Fancy Stone

Not held down by earthly conditions, the Meteor Fancy Stone presents its own shape and dimension with asymmetric feel and out-of-this-world elegance. This unique cut will add depth to any design.

Cabochette Bead

Cabochette Bead

Blending the eye-appealing beauty of precise facets and soothing smooth design, the Cabochette bead defines simple sophistication. This round, smooth and uniquely faceted bead is as refreshing as a spring water droplet.

Cabochette Pendant

Like the bead that shares its name, the Cabochette pendant is a brilliant example of bold romanticism. Use it as single dramatic ending drop or pair with another smooth shape for a stylish unisex look.

Crystal Globe

With a cool 3D effect, the Crystal Globe shares in the movement of a new definition of elegance, along with the Cabochette. This smooth shape is another way to present perfect simplicity to any design for a flawless complement.

Molecule Flatback (no Hotfix)

The futuristic look of the Molecule brings a new way of thinking when you design. This shape, inspired by the building blocks of life, is a wonderful interpretation of Swarovski’s vision of their “female shift.”

New Colors and Effects

Crystal Rose Gold

This soft yet strong color combines the timeless elegance of a crystal with the refined brilliance of precious metal. The Crystal Rose Gold color provides a gentle dusty rose hue sprinkled with a glittering gold finish, ideal for trendy feminine designs.

Light Silk

Light Silk offers a versatile, neutral shade that is as timeless and classic as a pearl. Redefine your feminine designs by combining this shade with both classic styles and innovative new trends.

Likes its crystal sister, the Crystal Rose Gold Pearl shade offers a rich, creamy blush accented by gold. With its vintage feel you can play it up with other classic color pearls or with uniquely shaped elements for a more organic look.
