A Little Dior In Your Day

It was Christian Dior himself who collaborated with Swarovski 
to inspire this gorgeous AB crystal coating. 

Dior wanted the crystal 
to reflect the 'Northern Lights'
 and Swarovski certainly delivered 
with this gorgeous Aurora Borealis finish.

I am currently reading Jean Campbells' book 

'Creating Glamorous Jewelry 
With Swarovski Elements. 

Classic Hollywood Designs 
With Crystal Beads And Stones'   

Which has a great introduction about the history of Swarovski
and it's links with the glitterati of Hollywood and the fashion world.

I like the idea that my favourite crystal finish 
was inspired by Christian Dior!
