Birthstone Colors for November and December

Fall has come and it’s time to get cozy with pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider and fuzzy sweaters! For those of us with loved ones with birthdays in this busy holiday season, we know that it’s easy to forget them in the shuffle. One way to show your love and appreciation for those closest to us, is to give personalized gifts either for birthdays or holiday gifts and using Swarovski Crystal birthstone colors is a fantastic way to personalize jewelry.

For November, the birthstone is Topaz. This beautiful fall Swarovski color is a warm burnished orangy brown which evokes fall leaves, pumpkin pies and crackling fires. The word is derived from the Sanskrit word “tapas,” meaning fire. A gift of this gemstone is said to symbolize friendship and to strengthen one’s capacity to give and receive love. Use this gorgeous Swarovski color in any number of patterns we offer which use Swarovski crystal beads.

For December the birthstone is Blue Zircon, a cool icy color which calls to mind a snowy twilight or an icy lake. This wintery colored stone has been known for hundreds of years. A gift of Blue Zircon is symbolic of love and fidelity. Use Swarovski’s beautiful Blue Zircon crystal to personalize any jewelry project for those you love. We also offer the intriguing Burgundy Blue Zircon blend color which grounds the light icy Blue Zircon with Burgundy to create a dual tone that is quite unusual and very eye catching.

Anyone who has been keeping their eye on the fashion scene would have noticed the pearl creeping back in over the last few seasons as young jewelry designers place them in unexpected places such as ear cuffs and pair them with unusual materials.

This winter, however, you are increasingly going to be seeing the democratization of that classic pearl strand as everyday street wear. Designers are pairing this classic element with denim patches, military jackets and the sports sweaters that are so very now.

New Honeycomb Jewels are two hole beads with character…

We have just received the newest two hole Czech beads. They are called Honeycomb Jewels. Honeycomb Jewels are 6 mm hexagons, the same size as Honeycombs but twice the thickness. They have an elevated top with multiple, pressed facets which give them a jewel-like look.

2-hole-honeycomb-jewel-bead

Do you remember how everyone was buzzing about Honeycomb Beads when they first hit the market. There was a good reason for it. Honeycombs have proven to be one of the most popular Czech beads. The newest beads are similar in shape but different in appearance. Like Honeycombs, Jewels interlock and create a visual effect reminiscent of a honeycomb and they can be used in patterns that call for Honeycomb Beads as long as they are not stacked on top of each other. Jewels come in several popular colors and finishes.

Let us know what you think about Honeycomb Jewels. Are they going to be as popular as Honeycombs? Have you made jewelry with them yet?

Download our popular Honeycomb Beads free bracelet pattern and see if you can make it with Jewels.

Swarovski 8 mm Crystal Chatons

Swarovski Crystal Chatons are faceted stones with no holes that are backed with a mirror-like foil coating to create extra dimension and sparkle. Chatons come in a large variety of sizes. Smaller sizes are often used in costume jewelry, they are frequently glued into settings to create a sparkly effect.

Chatons-top-Banner

Eureka Crystal Beads, an Authorized Swarovski Reseller carries the largest selection of Crystal Chatons in 8mm.

Swarovski Crystal Chatons have a patented Xillion cut, similar to  a princess cut on a diamond.  Chatons are not flat in the back but instead they are pointed and quite deep with the dominant flat crystal face on the front surrounded with symmetrical cuts on the side and the back.

Our color selection in 8mm Swarovski Chatons includes the most unusual hues

8mm Chatons in powder colors are perfect for summer and floral designs

The mirror-like foil applied to the back of the chaton allows it to reflect more light. The most popular chaton size in beading is the 8 mm.

Swarovski opal Chatons, Limited Edition White Opal Sky Blue and Star Shine

Chatons are frequently embellished with seed beads, or after they are set by hand in 4-prong settings, used as raised Rose Montees.

These types of settings have two parallel holes at the base and can be easily incorporated into your beading project. We carry Swarovski Chatons and Czech Preciosa Chatons which are less expensive crystal Chatons and come in a variety of colors with AB finishes.

Both brands are of very good quality. Our latest arrival are the beautiful new opal colors in 8mm Swarovski Chatons. Check out all the fantastic options available on Eureka Crystal Beads website now!

Swarovski Crystal Color Matching with Pantone Fashion Color Trends for Fall/Winter 2016

The Fall 2016 Pantone color palette is led by the blue family which evokes the desire for tranquility, strength and optimism. The palette is further anchored by earth tones and punctuated with exhilarating pops of color to create a balanced and playful collection.

“Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Following the lead of the world’s leading color experts, we’ve put together a guide for how to match the latest Swarovski crystal colors with Pantone’s Fall 2016 color forecast below:

Highlighting the importance of blue in the palette, the new blue shade of PANTONE Riverside undeniably takes precedence in the fall collections.

  • Cool and calming, strong and stable
  • Maintains a sense of constancy
  • Best Swarovski Crystal match: Denim Blue

blue_Riversidedenim blue

There’s an edge to PANTONE Sharkskin, and yet it manages to remain neutral.

  • Pair-able with almost any fall color, bright or muted
  • A color that the rest of the palette can literally and theoretically rest on
  • Best Swarovski Crystal match: Black Diamond

gray_Sharkskin5328-4-bldi

In contrast to the stable backbone of the Fall 2016 palette, Aurora Red adds a welcome punch.

  • A bold Red that is warm, sensual and immediately pleasing to the eye
  • Best Swarovski Crystal matches: Light Siam & Swarovski Crystal Dark Red Coral

aurora-red-18-1550chatonlightsiam

5328-4-darc5328-4-lisi

Warm Taupe is a hearty, pleasing and approachable neutral that pairs well with each of the top 10 shades of the Fall 2016 season.

Warm_Taupe5328-4-list

Like Airy Blue, Pantone’s Dusty Cedar gives a nod to the Color of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz.

  • A fall and winter version of the Pinks we’re used to seeing in spring
  • Dustier rose-toned Pink shade with some complexity
  • Best Swarovski Crystal match: Blush Rose

dusty-cedar-18-16305328-blush-rose-6

Pantone’s green tone for the fall of 2016 is Lush Meadow which brings to mind fresh botanicals and foliage.

  • Rich and elegant, vibrant and sophisticated
  • Best Swarovski Crystal match: Emerald

Lush-Meadow-18-58455328-4-emer

Bouncing elegantly off other colors in the palette, Spicy Mustard is an exotic addition of zesty brightness.

  • Adds another splash of uplifting vibrancy
  • A spicier, zestier Yellow than previous seasons
  • Best Swarovski Crystal match: Sunflower

Spicy-Mustard-14-09525328-4-SUNF

PANTONE 18-1340 Potter’s Clay has an added degree of sophistication and layering.

  • Neutral earth tone; expected for fall and winter palette
  • Best Swarovski Crystal match: Topaz

Potters-Clay-18-13405328-4-topa

The unexpected bright tone of Bodacious speaks to the gender fluidity we continue to see and adds a brightness to winter styles.

  • Unexpected in fall
  • Versatile; can be used with Pinks and Reds
  • Best Swarovski Crystal match: Rose

Bodacious5328-4-rose
