Celebrated filmmaker, humanitarian and environmentalist, Céline Cousteau, granddaughter of famed ocean explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau, can now add designer to her growing list of accomplishments, having created her first-ever crystal collection for Swarovski.
Her designs provide a small glimpse into the versatile and splendorous underwater environment and effortlessly convey the beauty of the ocean through her work with the finest quality crystal jewelry. One remarkable example being the Jellyfish Fancy Stone partly frosted, which is available in three different sizes and seven possible effects.
The shape of these silent, slow water drifters is perfectly captured in the double-sided, eight-pointed crystal star. A complex multilayer cut and a frosted finish around it results in an extraordinary naturalistic appearance produced by the crystal jewelry.
Combined with other maritime impressions like the Sea Urchin Round Stone of Cousteau’s designer edition, you can create bold back-to-nature looks while also making a clear statement for sustainability and awareness about nature.
Responsibility for nature is an integral part in our company’s DNA. Since the company’s founding by Daniel Swarovski over 120 years ago, we have been committed to the care and preservation of our planet’s natural resources. We have optimized the energy use and emissions of our production across the entire value chain and with projects like the Swarovski Waterschool program we provide the supply with clean water in emerging regions.
Céline Cousteau’s Tribute to Tribe collection does justice to the people who inspired it. When the filmmaker and environmentalist embarked on a film project in the Brazilian Amazon, little did she know that she would be inspired by the indigenous tribal culture to create a Swarovski designer edition of arresting crystal beauty.
Tribute to Tribe is Céline Cousteau's second designer edition for Swarovski inspired by her film project, Tribes on the Edge, made while working with indigenous tribes in Vale Do Javari, deep in the Brazilian rainforest. The collection consists of tribal symbols that celebrate the interconnection of mankind to nature.
The Oval Tribe Fancy Stone stands for a new design ethos where global references and mediums are mixed-and-matched to create a contemporary appreciation of the remote and unknown.
The Rhombus Tribe Fancy Stone is a beautiful interpretation of a tribal-inspired design, inviting us to embrace a multicultural future.
The Cross Tribe Pendant, an almost universal symbol of the cross, deeply rooted in every culture, communicates the message of social responsibility and mutual respect.
