I have been studying the old elegance of the Jazz Age for some time and waiting for the right moment to create our own interpretation around it. Recently luck brought us to some wonderful vintage Swarovski crystals greatly inspired us and we knew they would be perfect for the mini Jazz collection. Swarovski, the leading provider of high-quality crystals, had its boom time as the lust for opulence in the Jazz Age of the 1920s and 1930s was just being introduced. Swarovski worked closely with already big fashion names at the time - Balenciaga, Chanel and Schiaparelli, made crystals became an integral ingredient in fashion.
Crystals make jewelry dance, creating a dazzling light show unlike any other material. We have the challenge to use the uncommon shapes of the vintage crystals that many of us don't see everyday now: polygones, squares and retangles. We are very lucky to have the chance to rework these materials into new pieces. We hope you enjoy the romance and elegance of these modernized Jazz Age designs as much as we did while designing them.
