Atelier Swarovski is marking its 10th anniversary with a fine jewellery collection, which will be unveiled in full at Baselworld today (March 23).
Handcrafted in a Parisian atelier and featuring Swarovski Created Diamonds, the collection is “inspired by nature and driven by science”. The range includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings across three design themes: mosaic, Art Deco and concentric.
Swarovski Created Diamonds are “grown” in a state-of-the-art lab but are 100% carbon and have the same hardness and brilliance as mined diamonds.
The Atelier Swarovski fine jewellery collection is being shown in full for the first time, after its launch on the red carpet at the Academy Awards in February. It will sit alongside an exclusive showcase of iconic Atelier Swarovski pieces and its new spring/summer 2017 core collection. This will feature new colourways for the Moselle collection, which combines crystals and pearls in classic smooth forms, and a new “switchable” bracelet-choker and clip-on earrings for the Kalix collection.
Atelier Swarovski, launched by Nadja Swarovski in 2007, has collaborated with more than 80 designers from across fashion, jewellery, architecture and design. It aims to be a showcase for creativity and the art of crystal-cutting and innovation.
Past collaborators have included fashion designers Jean Paul Gaultier, Christopher Kane and Mary Katrantzou for jewellery.
Forthcoming collaborations include style icon Iris Apfel and emerging talent Paul Andrew. A showcase of pieces from across its first decade will be shown at Baselworld.
