The Swarovski crystal assortment
The art of colors & effects
Colors: Part of our DNA
The core of our assortment is based on the classic jewelry colors such as Ruby, Topaz or Emerald. The rich palette of more than 70 colors allows endless combinations and enables tailored solutions. Our crystals are consistent in color across all cuts and sizes and offer optimal color saturation from every angle, that won’t fade when exposed to UV, saltwater, sweat, machine washing or even plating and soldering.

Effects: Our exclusive coatings
The introduction of the first effect, the Aurore Boreale (AB effect), in 1956 marked the beginning of a new era for crystals. Effects are a composition of metallic layers or a lacquer coating that is applied to the surface of an already cut and perfectly polished crystal. With these special coatings, Swarovski offers an exclusive, nuanced palette of fancy and fashion-forward shades, including multiple layered hues. Each effect has a different resistance level or reaction to processes such as soldering or plating—check the color charts for more details.
The main effects
The most popular effects, the so-called Transparent Effects, are applied to the top of the surface of the crystal, while the base color remains visible. Surface effects include Crystal Aurore Boreale, Crystal Shimmer, Crystal Metallic Light Gold, Crystal Golden Shadow and Jet Hematite. Browse the color charts for more information on the resistance level of each effect.

These types of effects are applied to the back, and shine through the body of the crystal. They include the popular Crystal Silver Night, Crystal Vitrail Light, Crystal Vitrail Medium, Crystal Bermuda Blue and Crystal Volcano. Most of these coatings are plating resistant thanks to the special Platinum* Pro Foiling. Find more detail in the color charts.
