Each shade takes its inspiration from the worlds of creativity that Swarovski touches – fashion, art, music and architecture – paying tribute to Swarovski’s long history of collaboration with artists from across the creative disciplines. The vibrant colors offer the most extensive and sophisticated collection of colored lab-created diamonds for jewelry designers today.
The colored stones made their debut in Paris in brilliantly large sizes - the boldest of each color theme in an impressive 2.5 carats, and the others in a celebratory 1.25 carats to mark Swarovski’s 125th anniversary. The stones will also be available in 0.25 to 1.5 carats, unveiling a rainbow of possibilities for jewelry designers. The fantastical names, including Cubist Sky, Heavy Metal Cherry and Gothic Cognac, inspire bold and beautiful creative thinking.
The Androgynous Flamingo shade – a soft yet seductive pink – made its red carpet debut at the BAFTA Awards in February 2020. Award-winning actress Olivia Colman wore a bespoke set of earrings and rings crafted from pink Swarovski Created Diamonds, Swarovski Created Sapphires and Swarovski Genuine Topaz set in 18-karat recycled white gold. The exquisite cluster earrings and cocktail rings were created especially for Colman to complement her intricate floral Alexander McQueen gown.
This exciting new range of colored Swarovski Created Diamonds unlocks new creative inspiration while embracing the future of responsible jewelry design. Grown under laboratory conditions that echo the natural growth of a diamond, Swarovski Created Diamonds have the same optical, chemical and physical attributes as mined stones. The only difference is that the origin is a laboratory and not the earth. Each stone has a microscopic laser inscription “SWAROVSKI CREATED DIAMOND” to identify them as man-made wonders. Swarovski Created Diamonds are a conscious choice, honoring the company founder’s vision of a responsible business that not only has its employees’ wellbeing at heart but also that of the environment and society as a whole.
