Swarovski's Crystal Colors_2

Swarovski’s Crystal Colors

For more than 100 years, Daniel Swarovski from Austria and his sons invaded the Crystal Jewelry industry using their patented Swarovski’s cutting machine. They created crystals in different colors and established The Daniel Swarovski Corporation in 1895.

They first made what they call “Crystal” which has a colorless tinge to it. Then, it was followed by the “Topaz,” which was later enhanced to “Erinite”. After too much innovation from their cutting machine, they discovered the “Rose,” “Light Siam” as well as the “Sapphire.” When they explored further into the jewelry industry, they discovered the “Cobalt”, then the “Lilac” and later on the “Tanzanite”. Soon after, they added the beauty of the “Amethyst”, “Smokey Quartz” and the “Black Diamond” into their list of crystals.

After long years of exploration, they discovered that there are also colors of crystal jewelry such as the “Jet”, and “Fuschia”, then the “Emerald”, and the “Aqua.” These colors amazed everyone especially the ladies who are fond of pairing their crystals with their outfits. This was followed by new jewelry colors like the “Indicolite”, “Padparadscha”, and the “Violet”. Later on, they created from the original colors lighter hues like “Light Amethyst”, “Light Rose”, and the “Light Sapphire.”

And as the company Swarovski grows bigger, they discovered more colors. Next in line in jewelry colors by the Swarovski’s are the “Capri Blue”, “Peridot” and the “Garnet.” Later on, another light colored crystal came into picture: “Light Topaz.”

Remember your recent wedding anniversary? What did your wife receive from a generous husband like you? Did she receive such unforgettable “Montana Sapphire” which probably cost a fortune to buy? Did you give your wife the “White Opal” or the “Blue Zircon”? And are you generous enough to buy different crystal jewelry colors like “Ruby” or the “Crystal Dorado” for your next anniversaries? Or with or without occasions, can you afford to give her the “Bermuda Blue”, “Light Peach” and “Shadow Crystals,” which balance the skin tone of the one wearing it. These are just some of the colors that came much later.

But not all colors fit everybody. For the ladies, you have to be aware that upon wearing the crystal jewelry colors, it should also match the color of your outfit. Don’t ever wear jewelry colors that contradict the color of your gown. Even in previous centuries, they already wearing the above-mentioned crystal jewelry colors although they did not realize that it was created by the Swarovski clan. The company is a four generation crystal company that supplies the largest number of full lead crystals around the globe. They make up about 75% of the total crystal supplies in the market. And through the years, the Swarovski’s maintained the quality of their crystals: fine-faceted and polished, extracting the sparkle and brilliance out of each crystal.

The Swarovski’s Crystal Jewelry colors are all showcased in different internet stores designed and made into different kinds of jewelries such as bracelets, anklets, watches, necklaces and other accessories.

Crystal Jewelry Versus Traditional Jewelry

Crystal jewelry has been around for quite some time now. It was first discovered when man started putting precious stones like diamonds, rubies, emeralds and jades in their jewelries. For the good part of the history of jewelry making and crafting, the Egyptians were given credit for infusing jewelry in their customs and traditions. Jewelry were adornments that symbolized the social standing of a person in the Egyptian society, very much the like the denomination of coins.

The higher the value of the jewelry the more important the role a person plays in his community. If the person only had a handful of these adornments they were servants and placed the lowest in that society, but if they were adorned with jewelry in every nook and cranny they held some of the highest positions in the land. None of course can have more jewelry that the pharaoh himself.

During those times metals formed a very important part of the craft of jewelry making. Serving as the base or the main article of the jewelry piece, metals such as gold and silver were considered the skeleton of the piece itself. During the times of the great discoveries, great and wise men were commissioned to study how to turn non precious metals in to gold.

The Alchemists, said to forefathers of modern chemists, did everything they can to discover a way of turning plain copper and bronze in to gold. Some have claimed success though there were no documented proofs of one ever happening. Yet, what it did was pave the way for greater things in the craft of jewelry making.

Traditionally, jewelry sets were made from gold or silver with precious stones or semi-precious stones as adornments. These can be seen even in the earliest of civilization. These kinds of jewelry pieces are what we call the metallic pieces as it has metal as its main material. Metallic jewelry was very common because of their ease in crafting and durability. Even up to the present time most of the master jewelers prefer to have metallic based jewelry as oppose to the alternative materials.

On the other hand, one major setback of this is the depleting source of gold and other precious metals. While it is true that metals can be melted back to its raw form the number of people willing to let go of their traditional pieces are quite few, since most of these pieces are part of a family heirloom or an important collection.

One good alternative to traditional piece are crystal jewelry sets. Crystal jewelry has been around for some time now. The first people to make use of pure crystals in their jewelry sets and other items were the Chinese. Since their discovery of jade and other precious stones they have been using it in their swords, crowns and their jewelry.

The Chinese have mastered the art of crafting crystal jewelry and they have passed it on through out the ages. Some of the recent artifacts discovered in China suggest that crystals served more than just ordinary adornments for the Chinese people. They have also used it in their charms and amulets as part of the belief that in can drive away demons and attract good fortune.

Crystal jewelry has also formed part of their heirlooms and other important collections.

Taking Proper Care Of Your Crystal Jewelry

Some people are intimidated by cleaning their crystal jewelry. The fact that they are so beautiful and so elegant, people are afraid that if the would be cleaning it incorrectly, its lustre and beauty would lessen. Crystal jewelry is also associated with healing. They are also referred to as healing crystals. They are said to have natural energy that could help the body rejuvenate or strengthen its system. This could also be another factor when cleaning them.

Crystals would retain its energy charge, but it would lose its energy within a few hours. There are also cases that crystals would absorb negative kind of energy that can be felt by the user. Therefore it is important to clear and recharge the crystals. To clear a crystal, it can be placed or soaked in sea salt, usually for the whole night until a couple of days. After that, you can rinse it with some water and then put it under the sun.

Now, putting that aside. Let�s talk about keeping your crystals shining all the time. Crystals would lose it s gleam because of its daily and long time use. Not that we purposefully neglect them, but because some activities would cause it to lose its shine, like applying lotion and makeup. Aside from that, the skin releases natural oil which also conceals the sheen of the jewelry.

Taking care of your crystal jewelry can actually be very inexpensive. Jewelry stores would often sell different jewelry cleaning materials but if you prefer to make your own, then you can easily buy some materials in a grocery store. Baby wipes are a great way to rub off the dirt. It does not contain harmful chemicals that could harm the jewelry. After wiping off the traces of dirt, dry it with cotton. You can also use a soft cloth soaked in warm water.

There would be times when baby wipes and soft cloth could not totally remove the dirt, you can use other cleaning methods. Some would make their own cleaning solution, water, alcohol and dishwashing liquid. Aside from dishwashing liquid, some would prefer using mild laundry detergent. This can be mixed together to clean crystal jewelries.

A soft-bristled toothbrush can also be used to remove the dirt from the crystals, especially if it has corners or the design will have nooks that is difficult to reach by hand. When using a toothbrush, remember that use is lightly and gently, you do not want to have the whole jewelry ruined because you brushed it like how you brush your teeth.

You can also soak the crystal jewelries in the same solution to totally remove the dirt. But it do not over soak it, two minutes will be enough. Rinse the jewelry in lukewarm water, this will take off or wash away the remaining solution. Be sure to dry it well with cotton cloth or tissue. But be cautious when soaking crystal jewelries, some crystal jewelries would have gemstones or semi-gemstones. The are never meant to be soaked!

The problem with gemstones, especially those semi-gemstones like malachite, amber, opal or jade, is that they are very porous. Meaning, they can absorb the detergent and chemicals overtime. Absorption of these kinds of chemicals could eventually lead into the fading of colours of the jewelry. It would be safe to use warm water and a soft cotton cloth to clean gemstones.

Proper cleaning and taking care of you crystal jewelry, would make you able to use it for a long period of time. Crystals are timeless, since they represent elegance, charm and beauty. So if you have one, it would be great to keep them shining for a long period of time.

If you are planning to undergo body piercing to use the body jewelries you see on display, then you should first think of the major considerations before you finally let the artist “punch” holes into your body parts.

The first consideration in body piercing is the pain. Many people are interested to have body piercings to display unique body jewelries but they become hesitant when the realization of pain rushes in. If you are really interested in body piercing and you would want to use the body jewelries you see on display, then you should not worry too much about the pain.

Aside from the pain, the second consideration if you take on body piercing is the length of time for it to heal. The healing process would greatly depend on the body type of the person and the area where the piercing took place. On the average, the oral and facial piercings tend to heal faster compared to other parts of the body because they will heal in a span of two to three months compared to other that may take six months to almost one year before it heals.

Next consideration would be the things you can and can’t do during the healing period. Remember, piercing for a crystal jewelry on your body is a wound. And just like any other wound, piercing can get worse if not given proper attention and cleaning.

Make sure that you properly take care of your piercing by regularly cleaning. And also make sure that you wash your hands thoroughly before and after treating each wound.

It has made its way into the comforts of homes and offices giving each room and area a sparkling ambiance that makes the occupant longing for more. It ahs been part of a series of significant happenings and events in the lives of so many people.

It has walked the aisle so many times ravishing the crowd with its beauty that blends well with that of the bride. It surely has and continues to leave the market in shear awe. But surely the jewelry cannot stand alone. Without the elegance of the crystal your precious jewelry is just an ordinary accessory. So with this in mind let�s turn on the old school music and take a peak of how crystals made their way in the lives of so many people.

It was around the second half of the 17th century when a man named George Ravenscroft who was a glassmaker by profession paved the way for the birth of pure lead crystals. Ravenscroft was looking for means to produce glassware that can boast of an improved clarity and luster. He succeeded upon creating a molten mixture that composed of lead oxide. In this manner he was able to alter the properties of glass drastically.

Certain changes included higher glass clarity and the refractive index of the glass came blowing off the charts. He also noted that there was a remarkable increase in the weight of the glass and it became more malleable that an opportunity to mold it easier without breaking it presented itself. This brought about an instant bloom in the fame of Ravencroft�s glass. It easily spread in the markets of Europe and as far as that of America.

Moving further back into ancient times, the purpose of crystals was not only as accessories or jewelries. Crystals were associated with mystic powers and thus with the properties of healing all sorts of ailments and disorders. This is actually where the belief of crystals being associated with meditation and inner balance. Crystals were placed in special areas of the house and were readily worn during times of special events such as quests and battles.

Historians and archeologists have concluded that crystals were not only used for adornment purposes but more so inclined with that of the spiritual realm. A prehistoric monument proves how crystals were used by early civilization in order to communicate with nature and the after life. This monument is a solar temple known to history as the Newgrange. This is actually a sacred passage in the Boyne Valley found in Ireland.

This grave was built way earlier than the pyramids. Its orientation was done so as to facilitate sun streams to enter through the long tunnel entrance which is estimated to be about seventy feet. One noticeable feature that presented crystals was the white quartz that covered the roof. This was said to be made in honor of the White Goddess.

Other historical fact showcased crystals as common mediums utilized in healing and spiritual ceremonies that were done by the early settlers in South America. In the Far East, quartz crystal balls were usually associated with the essence of a powerful mythological creature which is the dragon. Back in ancient India chakras or energy center said to be located in various areas around the body is also tagged with crystals. This is where meditation methods of placing crystals across the body trace its root.

No matter how far crystal jewelry has reached in the modern day its old school background will surely be carved along with it as it continuously make longer and better strides.
