I absolutely love crystals especially Swarovski crystals. To me, crystals just make accessories more stunning looking. On Saturday night I was at Macy’s and I nearly died and went to shoe heaven when I saw a pair of Steve Madden heels that were adorned in crystals. They were not cheap but it didn’t take more than 5 minutes to decide to purchase them. I literally pranced around in them at the shoe department before I bought them because I couldn’t believe how beautiful they were. Crystals are girly, fun and just drop dead gorgeous.
Who doesn’t admire the majestic gaze of Swarovski Elements? Swarovski’s popular name has been situated on jewelry, gadget wear, home décor, and now accessories. Sure Swarovski accessories aren’t what you would call a brand new aspect to the brand, but their ready-to-wear pieces are rare to see on a daily basis. Swarovski addresses their handbags for nightwear and one of their latest in the collection is the dazzling Evening Ivy Purse, a must have for the true Swarovski-addict.
I love crystals so it comes as no surprise that I’m in love with everything at Swarovski. To me, everything just looks much more prettier with some sophisticated bling on it.
Swarovski always has the most gorgeous clutches one can ever imagine. A clutch that is completely covered in crystals will always catch someone’s eye. When it’s a clutch that is covered in Swarovski crystals it makes a statement.
The “Allegro” Silver Evening Bag by Swarovski is on my current wish list. It’s gorgeous and almost looks like it’s a bag that is engulfed in diamonds. My favorite part of the bag is definitely the fake lock closure. I’m assuming it’s fake because by the picture it looks as if the clutch has a flap closure. The lock makes it look more exclusive and different than any other clutch out there.
Founded in 1895 and known for his expertise cuts that make crystal glass sparkle like no other is the Austrian luxury brand of Swarovski. Daniel Swarovski gained his interest by working at his father’s glass cutting shop and gained his skills as he invented an electric cutting machine. He specialized in composing unique crystals that allow light to brightly expand a rainbow spectrum with the use of chemical applications and precise cuts. Swarovski not only specializes in crystal glass but in natural and synthetic gemstones, as well as optical instruments.
If you are looking to buy a gorgeous evening bag that is a little more affordable than Judith Leiber bags, Swarovski may be your choice. The Swarovski Goa Evening Bag is so gorgeous that it would make any evening outfit look stunning. No matter what you wear while holding this clutch, all eyes will be on the bag not your outfit.
The Swarovski Goa Evening Bag is a leather clutch that is covered with multi Moonlight crystals. The Moonlight crystals is what really makes this bag catch attention. Many handbags have small crystals that make a handbag look beautiful. It’s rare that you see a small clutch with crystals so big, that you can’t help but stare at it.
Only downfall about this clutch, is that you are paying a big price for such a small bag. The measurements of the clutch are, 4.3 x 8.7 x 1.2 inch which doesn’t give you room to carry much. The most I think you would be able to carry in it is maybe a cellphone, lip gloss, and your credit cards. Small or not, this clutch is to die for.
You can purchase the Swarovski Goa Evening Bag at Daniel Swarovski and select Swarovski boutiques for $3,000. Yes, that is a hefty price for a clutch that is so small but compared to a Judith Leiber crystal bad it’s a little more reasonable. The evening bag is very expensive, but also very beautiful.

If you are looking for an evening that is not only gorgeous but also on the large side, Swarovski has got you covered. The Swarovski Giorgia Evening Bag is the perfect handbag for a lovely night out or for those days you want to glam up your outfit a little bit more.
The Swarovski Giorgia Evening Bag is unique because it’s not very often you see an evening bag that is quite spacious. Usually evening bags are so tiny that you can barely fit your cell phone and compact in them. The measurements of the Giorgia bag are, 12 1/4 x 8 1/4, making it a great clutch to carry all of your essentials in not just a few.
Some other details of the clutch include being made of sheepskin and having a hematite crystal strip on the front.
The Swarovski Giorgia Evening Bag can be purchased at Swarovski for $575. $575 is a bit much for an evening bag, but if you plan to put the clutch to good use then it’s not that bad of a price. It would be a waste to spend that much money on a clutch, you are only going to carry on special occasions.
Pricey or not, the Swarovski Giorgia Evening Bag is a high class clutch with a whole lot of beauty.

So someone over at Swarovski headquarters had a rather odd idea when it came to a new handbag design. They really took the concept of compact and portable to a whole new level. Imagine a wallet-size cloth article, containing a zip pouch and an exterior transparent pocket to insert pictures in. Surrounding your picture of choice would be a collage of sparkly Swarovski crystals… how cute, right? Personally, I won’t be adding this to my wish list, but maybe my senior neighbor who holds a passion for canvas totes with pictures would be delighted by this piece. So it’s called the Embark Tote Bag for a reason since you can unzip this compact piece and out unfolds a parachute cloth tote, how neat is that! Well, this concept isn’t so new to the world of portability, hence the invention of the compact umbrella and the pocketsize raincoat, but in the world of handbags this is definitely … different. Tan hued body with fluorescent pink trim is the only version available at the moment and finding this piece on the sales rack indicates that this wasn’t as cool as it was intended to be. If you seek something different, you can find the Embark tote marked down to $154 over at Swarovski

side note: Ever wondered the difference between “Swarovski Silver Crystal” and “Rock Crystal”? Swarovski Silver Crystal is “man-made” and produced by combining a variety of different minerals, including quartz and lead oxide. The manufacturing process uses full lead crystal containing more than 30% lead oxide, producing a crystal with a “deep color spectrum”.
On the other hand, “Rock crystal” is a semiprecious stone, considered a mineral quartz, that occurs naturally. Therefore, Swarovski Silver Crystal produces a more brilliant color than natural rock crystal.
