A Rainbow of Inspirations
In the world of the ‘Cultural Roots’ design direction, modern design parameters are rooted in culture specific traditions that center on the personal themes of origins and the family. Respect for ancestral history and its associated rituals and ceremonies speaks of enduring love of past generations, while origin stories infuse the present with a sense of gravity and purpose based on belonging to the wider group.
Traditional headpieces play an all-important role in this varied topic and are used to tell many stories, be they from Asia that is vibrantly alive with rich cultural traditions like those of India, Japan and China, or Africa’s bountiful cultural traditions from the Islamic to the tribal. Here the entire panoply of genuine gemstones and created stones from Swarovski comes into play. Whatever the traditional influence or cultural reference, Swarovski has a stone in a cut or color to perfectly elucidate the historical threads of each individual story.
Inspired by the seemingly endless palette of Swarovski Genuine Gemstones and Created Stones, a Cultural Roots tiara or headband becomes a crowning glory not just of and for today, but also a testament to the serene beauty of tradition.
