Swarovski’s Jewel in the Crown was a ‘D:LIGHT’
An enchanting candle lit trail meandering through Sydney’s Botanical Gardens led us to the historic ‘Palm House’ quaintly nestled amongst the trees. Although the path was a little tricky for ‘heeled’ navigation it added to the ‘secret garden’ feel of the launch of Swarovski’s ‘Nature Reloaded’.
Inside the ‘Palm House’ was a fairyland of dazzling crystal jewelry and watches, cascades of sparkling stones descending from the ceiling to pool on the floor past sprays of orchids and huge (stuffed) peacocks.
Swarovski’s Autumn/Winter 2009/10 collection is (of course) breathtaking, but their jewel in the crown for this season is their ‘D:LIGHT’ – a magnificent crystal studded cuff watch. On first appearance the ‘D:LIGHT’ is a stunning ‘cuff’ but on the press of a button the crystals illuminate as a digital time piece.
Swarovski showed the innovate watch for the first time at their inaugural showing at ‘Baselworld 2009’, the world’s largest and most important event for the watch and jewelry industry.
With delicious canapés by ‘Plated’, the ‘Adam Worling’ touch, quality wines and more stunning Swarovski crystals in one place than most would see in a lifetime, being at the ‘Palm House’ this night felt special indeed.Share
