Crystal gifts are an excellent idea for fashionistas and collectors. Of course if you want to give the best I would recommend Swarovski’s crystal creations.
Swarovski is one of my favourite shops in Paris. There are several Swarovski stores in the capital, but my preferred one is the one on Rue Bonaparte. It is a beautiful store where you can find the most amazing crystal jewellery, figurines & collectibles, fashion accessories and house decoration items like chandeliers and sculptures in crystal.
For those not familiar with Swarovski,I can tell you that since 1895, Swarovski has been one of the world’s premiere crystal manufacturers. Worldwide Swarovski is known for its luxury yet affordable products. This is one of the reasons why Swarovski gifts are a very good option when you are looking for an original gift for a special person.
Recognizing an original Swarovski
Original Swarovski products are marked with the Swarovski logo. The original logo was an edelweiss flower which was later replaced in 1988 by the Swan logo. However, in latest products the Swarovski Swan logo is being replaced by the Swarovski name.
What makes Swarovski crystals so valuable and looked-after worldwide is its careful crafting and cutting of the crystal glass, as well as the rainbow slick appearance of its final products.
Swarovski, the best gift for a fashionista
During Paris fashion week fall winter 2010-2011 Lanvin’s designs sparkled with Swarovski crystals. Have a look at the video below and you will see by yourself how Swarovski crystals add a touch of elegance to a little black dress. Whether it is in the form of outsized jewellery or Swarovski crystals added to the dresses as decoration, Lanvin glitters with Swarovski.

For those who love home decoration I recommend the Darose, Crystal Red
Flowers are always a wonderful gift, very much appreciated despite their short life. If you want your flower to last forever, I recommend you treat that special person to a crystal rose.
This beautiful rose featuring ten delicate and shiny petals in the shape of little hearts form a beautiful flower, perfect for a romantic table decoration.
