Hear the word 'crystal', and you expect the word 'Swarovski' to precede it. Swarovski crystals are are epitome of quality and style, if you have a piece of jewellery with Swarovski crystals, you know you have the real deal. They exude the ultimate in glamour and we love nothing more that than here at Alexandra May.
This season we are loving these new arrivals. Peter Lang's Antiqued Gold Baroque Crystal Cluster Bib Necklace (above), is set with large sapphire blue, grey and clear Swarovski crystals. We also love Anton Heunis 'Tsarina' Gun Metal Blue Crystal Fan Earrings, are also set with sapphire blue, grey and clear crystals.
Anton Heunis 'Gotham City' Black Long Art Deco Earrings, are set with black vintage glass stones and clear Swarovski crystals, while his 'Gotham City' Five Jet Crystal Cluster Necklace, is set with clear and soft pale green crystals. We are also completely in love with this colourful Sweet Romance Peacock Paisley Pendant Necklace (bottom), with its fantastic colour-changing Swarovski crystal in the centre, surrounded by peacock iridescent crystals.
The weather may still be unpredictable, but spring has definitely arrived here at Alexandra May!
Just as Paris Fashion Week kicks off, the shop is full of Parisian flavour, as Konplott's new Macaroon collection has arrived. Delicious pastel hues in soft blue, mint green, candy floss pink and coral are mixed with opaline Swarovski crystals with pretty bows, cameos and flowers.
Le printemps est la, as they say!
This season, Philippe Ferrandis is the 'King' of the Swarovski crystal! Earrings are glittering with them whilst necklaces are studded in pretty shades of blue, green, turquoise, pink, purple and red. What could be more glamorous for spring?
Handmade at his studio in Paris, each Philippe Ferrandis piece is exquisitely made, and with names such as 'Waldorf' and 'Plaza', it's not hard to guess that his inspiration came from the glamour set and starlets of decades past.
So whether you opt for a pair of Swarovski twinkling earrings or a show-stopping necklace, not only will these pieces carry you right through to summer, but they are guaranteed to earn a permanent place in your jewellery box.
