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.
A perfect fusion of geometric shape and graphic detailing, the arrow bead forms a "spearhead" of directional design. It allows for many different interpretations, but one thing is for sure: its multi-layered cut will take center stage wherever it appears.
