Swarovski's AB effect, named for aurora borealis (the northern lights), is a term for crystal stones that have a highly iridescent surface. Created by Swarovski in 1955 in collaboration with Christian Dior, the effect is achieved by vapor blasting the facets of the lower part of the crystals with an invisible, micro-thin metal sheet.
Swarovski's crystal stairway bead adds dimension to the established chessboard pattern, using opposing facet directions terraced on front and back. The versatile two-hole feature is an innovative "step-up" to creative jewelry designs, from vintage glamour to contemporary sporty styles. The stairway bead works for men's, as well as women's accessories.
