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!
