Swarovski Zirconia Innovations 2016/2017

Each year, Swarovski launches a new collection of Swarovski Zirconia delivering exciting new shapes, cuts and colours to help explore the creative boundaries of jewellery and watch design. 

The 2016/2017 innovations saw the launch of four fabulous new zirconia stone cuts: the Round Rosebush Cut, the Dahlia Cut, the Antique Cushion Checkerboard Cut and the Bloom Cut.

Round Rosebush Cut

The heady romance of summer in an English rose garden is distilled into a centre stone of unbridled beauty as precision cutting science achieves its own poetry of form. Lush and intoxicating, these ‘roses’ symbolise the love that words alone cannot express.

Dahlia Cut

The exotic Dahlia with its extravagant petals and soft delicate curves has provided inspiration for this 10-sided cut. This Zirconia cut works especially well as a bouquet of stones.

Antique Cushion Checkerboard Cut

Straight from a page of gem history, the absolute classic is the perfect marriage between a rectangle and an oval. Now available in Swarovski Zirconia, this all-time favourite performs to perfection as a centre stone in any piece of jewellery.

 Swarovski Zirconia Innovations Colours 2016/2017

These stunning new stone cuts were accompanied by the release of four new colours: Fancy Light Green, Frosty Mint, Caramel and our absolute favourite Fancy Champagne.

Fancy Light Green

Nature’s favourite colour, green is a harbinger of new beginnings signifying growth as well as being a symbol for harmony and balance. This fresh and unique take on green contains all the promise of nature’s eternal blossoming into spring. Perfect for delicate and youthful designs, Fancy Light Green can achieve dramatic sophistication when paired with darker tones.

Frosty Mint

As icy as any glacier glistening in a winter wonderland, Frosty Mint is modern yet edgy, with a crisp appeal all of its own. Perfectly on trend for contemporary urban themes, it can also express the austere call of nature at its most extreme.

A re-interpretation of brown that resonates with end-of-the-year glories such as crisp autumn leaves or smooth caramelised apples. Beautifully complemented by shades of blue and green, caramel truly comes into its own when set in yellow gold. Depending on the light source, this inspired combination can blaze with all the power of a brush fire or smoulder with an inner flame.

Fancy Champagne

The peach tones of champagne bubbles infuse this cut and reference a spirit of celebration with an irrepressible joie-de-vivre. A clear expression of luxury and a life lived to its fullest, Fancy Champagne lends a sophisticated yet undeniably lady-like touch to any jewellery piece or watch.
