Like its darker counterpart, the warm effervescent hue of Swarovski crystal's light smoked topaz calls to mind flavors of cream soda, hot cocoa and toffee. Use this dreamy color as a neutral tone for bright color combinations or pair with black and dark hues to let it stand out.
Swarovski's signature AB effect, named for the aurora borealis (northern lights), was 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.
Light smoked topaz crystals out-sparkle the gemstone of its namesake. Aurora borealis finish enhances the already remarkable color by adding a reflective coating to one side of the bead. Swarovski crystal components are made in Austria and are considered the finest products of their kind in the world.
Resembling the flash of a diamond, the revolutionary 5328 Xilion bicone bead offers:
• Increased number of facets alternating large and small
• Slightly rounder girdle for added comfort in wearability
