Swarovski has just announced their Innovations for the Fall/Winter 2019/20 season and we’ve got a sneak peek of all of the beautiful crystal components coming soon. These Innovations are inspired by the expression, “Be Yourself.” These amazing crystal Innovations express the desire for uniqueness and the growing trend of individualism. There is no better way to stand out in the crowd than making your own jewelry, especially with stunning Swarovski crystal. Take a look at these new crystal effects, colors, and styles and get inspired to express yourself.
Crystal LacquerPRO DeLite Effects
You’re going to love the amazing flash and fire of the new Crystal LacquerPRO DeLite effects. This effect creates increased sparkle and light on the highlighted facets. It makes each facet appear sharp and perfect, while highlighting the depth and clarity of the crystal. These effects celebrate natural hues and landscapes, highlighting the beauty, intensity, and individual aspects of Mother Earth. There are five new DeLite effects: Burgundy DeLite, Army Green DeLite, Ochre DeLite, Cappuccino DeLite, and Light Grey DeLite.
Crystal Shimmer and Amethyst Shimmer
Swarovski has also extended their Shimmer effect to include Amethyst and Crystal Shimmer options. The Shimmer effect is inspired by the classic AB finish. It’s a soft and elegant effect that radiates multiple shades of a single color, giving you more brilliance, color vibrancy, and light refraction with every movement of the crystal. Since the new DeLite effect cannot be applied to articles with holes (such as beads and pendants), you can combine these Shimmer effects with the new DeLite effects for even more design possibilities. Crystal Shimmer works wonderfully with the new Light Grey DeLite effect and the Amethyst Shimmer is a great match for the Burgundy DeLite effect.
Crystal Iridescent Tahitian Look Pearl
The color trends for these Innovations continue to reflect an affinity with nature in the new Crystal Iridescent Tahitian Look pearl coating. This color is inspired by the rare and exclusive saltwater pearls that originate from Tahiti. It’s a fresh update on Swarovski’s previous Crystal Tahitian Look pearl, with less grey hues, a more vibrant teal base, and a subtle iridescent look. You can complement this exotic pearl color with essential and classic colors like Black, Dark Grey, and White.
Metallic Cap Pear-Shaped Pendant
This cool new pendant style features a sleek combined design with a pressed cavity on top with a coating that looks like a metal frame. The coating matches perfectly with rhodium-colored clasps, pinch bails, or loops. This pendant offers an attractive alternative to pendants with real metal caps that’s quick and easy to add into designs (no gluing necessary!).
Core Assortment Extension
In addition to these new Innovations, Swarovski has expanded the color assortment of some of the most popular articles in six major colors: Aquamarine, Amethyst, Emerald, Jet, Light Colorado Topaz, Scarlet, and Crystal. With more options in popular colors and styles, you can easily create fabulous jewelry designs.
2mm Pearl Size Extension
Swarovski didn’t stop at just expanding their core assortment. They have also added a 2mm pearl size extension to this Innovations launch. You’ll now find some of your favorite Swarovski pearl colors in a new and tiny 2mm size. These versatile and refined little beauties are great for delicate designs, bead embroidery, seed beading, and more. They also make a nice complement to the existing size range of crystal pearls. This new small size enables new gradient looks and textures with the other sizes available. Try using them in bead embroidery around Swarovski fancy stones for an unforgettable look!
