For thousand of years mankind has drawn spiritual and emotional power from symbols. For the first time, Swarovski introduces a collection of iconic symbols that bring together cultures, tradition und fashion through crystal for Spring/Summer 2016.
Cultural context is becoming one of the most important topics in the design world. Swarovski’s crystal designers have teamed up to bring you a range of fashionable Fancy Stones that reflects the trend of collectable statement symbols.
A Hand Against Evil: The Fatima Hand Fancy Stone
The Fatima Hand Fancy Stone is based on the “Hamsa Hand” that dates back to ancient Mesopotamia. Its five fingers were said to protect against evil. Like other cultural symbols – such as Buddha or the cross – the Fatima Hand has long been part of the world of fashion, where it combines modernism with traditional beliefs. Now for the first time, it has been given a glamorous interpretation in crystal. As a symbol of protection and of warding off evil, the Fatima Hand Fancy Stone is both an important design element and an amulet that offers people assurance. With these qualities, this first-of-its-kind product is part of a collection that uniquely marries culture, tradition, and fashion.
Peace of Mind: Buddha Fancy Stone
As people look to Asian culture for peace of mind and inner calm, the new, one-of-a-kind Buddha Fancy Stone allows people to express their values wherever they go – and in true style. Buddha symbolizes protection, perfection, and stability, three qualities the Buddha Fancy Stone reflects perfectly.
Perfect Harmony: Greek Cross Fancy Stone
The Greek Cross Fancy Stone draws on the spiritual power of an ancient symbol that can be found in Hindu, Central Asian, Celtic, Mexican, and Babylonian cultures. In contemporary fashion, the cross has become a favorite design element in its own right. Swarovski presents a new interpretation with a high-precision complex cut, symmetry of shape, and rounded edges, creating a perfectly harmonized product.
