Light and Shadow: New Swarovski Innovations for Fall and Winter 2018/2019

Light and shadow, nothing within the physical world can escape this duality; it is the nature of human consciousness and our planet. In order for our spiritual side to embrace this journey, we must experience the shadow side of spirit. Our daily lives are influenced by our perception of the world. The shadow has both negative and positive aspects that we must learn that we must learn from. This fall and winter season, these dueling perspectives will be brought to light. Today we present Swarovski’s new Innovations and Inspirations for Fall/Winter 2018/2019. These new Crystals interpret the times that we live in; drawing on the present, reflecting the past and envisioning the future.

Traditional Pearls Are Hip Again!


We all know (and love!) the simple but classic elegance of a string of pearls. And what’s lovelier than getting that pearl feel and quality by using Swarovski crystal pearls?


But take a look at runways from New York to Paris to Milan and you will find pearls paired in ways that are anything but traditional.


Miu Miu

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.


Maison Margiela, Chanel, Miu Miu

This is a great time to dig out your old pearl necklaces or construct a new heirloom of your very own using our beautiful and versatile Swarovski crystal pearls! Adding a simple pearl necklace to your outfit is the best way to look fashionable today.

Paris Fashion Week just ended and we’ve been on the edge of our seats in anticipation for the jewelry looks that are going to be the must-haves of the 2013/2014 autumn and winter season.

saint laurent

From Saint Laurent

We’ve really fallen for this fantastically whimsical and messy bracelet from Saint Laurent. An awesome way to make use of left-over beads and other materials to and make your own stylish bracelet for fall/winter.


From Balenciaga

Metal was all over the runway. Especially in large statement pieces.


From Balmain

Large statement earrings are clearly still in vogue as seen from Balmain, above.


From Chanel

Chanel upped the ante with large multi-teired chain necklaces.


From Chanel

But we fell in love with these stackable chain and felt bracelets that exude both cozy warmth as well as an edge. Can’t wait to try my hand at making a few myself!


From Chole

Christian Dior

From Christian Dior

Statement rings are still in for the upcoming season, with at least three per hand considered de rigueur.


From Hermes

Woven leather cord bracelets from Hermes continue the Bohemian trend.

Jean Paul Gaultier2

From Jean Paul Gaultier

More hardware from Jean Paul Gaultier. We really liked the metallic “sewn together” bib necklace. Were not sure how we felt about the collar.

From Kenzo


From Lanvin

Statement necklaces from Lanvin were cute, but we were scratching our heads at the be-pearled red heart pendant. A little much?


From Lanvin

All in all, it’s clear that metal is going to be big for this fall and winter season. Large statement jewelry, big rings, and lots and lots of chain are going to be the looks.

We’ll be heading back to the lab shortly to experiment with making some similar designs and will post some tutorials so you can grab them too!
