25 Ways to Bring Some Bling

So you love you some bling? Us too. In fact, we love it so much we've create a whole bunch of cool pieces to share with YOU!

With over 150 Swarovski crystal options, you are sure to find some bling you just cannot live without. Let us help.

Check out our NEW Swarovski Raindrop Pendants in both Rhodium and Gold, Crystal and Crystal AB (for those of you who love rainbows). What is the difference you ask and what is this about rainbows??

Swarovski Crystal offers a wide range of colors and special coatings. Special coatings are bonded chemically to the outer surface of the Swarovski crystals for a more brilliant effect. The special effect and special coating of the beads are permanent. Aurora Borealis, known as "AB", is one of the more popular (and one of our favorites) Swarovski Crystal coatings that gives off a rainbow-like effect. Aww the rainbow.

Bring a little color into your piece with the Crystal AB option or keep it simple but elegant with just the Crystal option.



We love how the Swarovski Raindrop Pendant brightens up this beautiful necklace.
