THE BRIDAL BOOK
A Swarovski Gem Visions Special
Ever sensitive to the desires of its customers, consumers, and admirers, Swarovski offers its special edition Gem Visions Bridal Book as a one-stop guide to today’s bridal segment and the major design directions that are shaping its future. The publication is a comprehensive study of the many important factors that influence the selection of jewelry pieces, bearing in mind that they must be beautiful but also capable of expressing an individual story of love and commitment. The guide analyzes every facet of this life-changing commitment to marry to give useful advice on the choice of the essential engagement and wedding rings. It also reflects on the suitability and desirability of jewelry pieces for the bridal pair and their intimate circle of family and friends. There are also detailed examinations of particular bridal themes - like Daydream Princess, Natural Affairs, Urban Minimalist and Cultural Roots - especially for contemporary brides who wish to personalize their wedding experience. Dedicated sections also address the specific needs of the groom and possible choices of anniversary gifts. Also featured are commentaries from two prominent, high profile experts on the Bridal scene: Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty and Carley Roney of The Knot Wedding Network.
The Bridal Book takes special in placing particular emphasis on precisely which Swarovski Genuine Gemstone or Created Stone best expresses a couple’s own unique love story. First and foremost come the versatile Swarovski Zirconia, which capture life’s magical moments through an emotional language of love and commitment. Available in the revolutionary round Pure Brilliance Cut, Swarovski Zirconia are also featured in a range of classic fancy cuts. The traditional Square Princess, Marquise, Pear, Oval, Baguette Princess and Cushion cuts all offer dramatically different options, while the geometric cuts such as the Round, Square and Baguette are suitable for progressive brides as are the contemporary Triangle and Chaos cuts. There is the auspicious 88-Facets cut, unique to Swarovski Zirconia. The number eight signifies infinity making this cut a perfect reflection of the eternal vows of the bride and groom.
