Holiday Wishlists 2014: Swarovski

Holiday Wishlist: Swarovski

If your heart is sparkly but your wallet is modest, the crystal jewelry made by Swarovski may be just the thing for you. Headquartered in Austria, the company has been making gorgeous jewelry and art objects for more than a century. Here are five of my favorite pieces from the brand's current collections...

If the gorgeous heirloom brooches worn by Elizabeth II are just your style, the Brazil Brooch, which features green and white crystals to mimic the sparkle of diamonds and emeralds, would be a perfect addition to your collection. ($125)

The company advertises the Bouquet Necklace as inspired by "dark romance," which sums the piece up rather nicely -- I love the way the neutral colors combine here. ($180)

Loved Kate's new dangling diamond and emerald earrings? May I suggest the Baron Pierced Earrings, which feature a similar profile but with delicate hints of blue. ($150)

There's no better time of year to show off a giant cocktail ring that's just this side of gaudy. The Blue Ring would look perfect at your office holiday party. ($260)

According to Swarovski, you can "feel like royalty" by acquiring your very own demi-parure this holiday season. I really like this one, the Blues Set -- it's modern but still very "minor royal," no? ($180)
