Swarovski Stardust Bracelets

swarovski-stardust-bracelet-coverWith the shopping days winding down for the holidays, I’ve been dying to showcase one of my new discoveries and an early Christmas gift to myself.  I hardly ever focus on non-charm jewelry here on the blog, but the new Swarovski Stardust Bracelets are incredibly eye-catching and accessorize amazingly with other bracelets.  They first debuted over the fall and have taken the fashion world by storm, I only recently went to see them in person at the Swarovski Boutique (concept store) and was blown away.

The stock photos do not do these bracelets justice so I found a few pictures on Instagram that give a better idea of what they look like live.  The bracelets are made from nylon mesh tubing and filled with Swarovski crystals.  The color comes from both the casing and the crystals inside; some have matching colors while others only have clear crystals.  The translucent mesh allows the crystals to shine brilliantly and creates a truly dazzling effect.

These come in a single or double wrap but only in small or medium sizes (S = 14 7/8 in. and M = 15 5/8 in.), the double wraps can also be worn as chokers.  The clasp has a magnetic closure which is secure yet simple to use, and it is palladium-plated metal.  The Stardust Bracelets are also available in two finishes, silver and gold.  There are 14 colors for the double wraps and 8 for the single wraps; the “Gray” bracelet is actually white, it is super stunning and my absolute favorite.  The Beige bracelet features a gold mesh with clear crystals and is perfect with gold jewelry.  If you’re a fan of rose gold, then the Pink bracelet is a wonderful choice – I was tempted to get this one even though I don’t even like rose gold.

It was difficult to decide but I bought two double wrap bracelets in Black and Gray.  It’s hard to describe how sparkly these pieces are and they’re definitely worth seeing for yourself!  I’ve been wearing them on their own, they combine well together, or stacked with other charm bracelets as well.  I’ve only found them at the Swarovski Boutiques or they can also be purchased online at the official Swarovski website.  They’re surprisingly affordable at $60 for a single wrap or $80 for the double wrap.  Is this something you’d be interested in?

    I love these, Leann, and I usually don’t focus too much on other jewelry lately besides charms/modular. These bracelets are gorgeous, though, and they look really user-friendly (comfortable, versatile, no-fuss). I love your gray the best; seems like it’d go with so many other colors and designs. I also love the burgundy-hued option (7th one down from the top in the pics of individual color choices); burgundy/wine is a favorite hue of mine for clothing, but it’s not the easiest to find without too much purple in it. This looks like a pretty shade; the other I’d pick right away is the beige/cream color – love that hue paired with deep, forest greens. Hmmm…don’t know how you chose; so many beautiful options! Are you going to get any more colors eventually? These would be fun to collect. Hope you’re feeling great! Take care…Kim

      I managed to get the beige (gold) one right before I gave birth and it’s actually my favorite so far! It sparkles brighter than even the white one, which is funny. Have you managed to check them out? 😀

  • Laura Summers

    I like them a lot. I have a concept store right across from my Pandora concept store; may have to stop by soon and see how they look in person!

      Me too, Laura. This is actually 1 product I can see in person, since Swarovski has concept stores in my area (western WA). With most brands, I can only judge by photos and comments of other collectors. Let us know what you think of these after you make it in to look in person. I’m curious, and it might be a few days/weeks before I can get to the mall and see them for myself. Take care…Kim

        They’re worth a visit, Kim. I ended up buying the single navy blue to wear with a pandora star bangle I’ve made. Some of the other colors were also gorgeous – especially the magenta. Wish I wore more of that color!

    • Leann

      What do you think? Aren’t they cool? 🙂

      • Laura Summers

        I bought the blue single to wear with my Pandora starry bangle. Looks great – thanks a bunch for the tip! 🙂

      • Leann

        Awesome! I’m glad you like it. The blue is soooo pretty :).

  • Carla Plume

    They are $75 and $105 here I like your prices better I would love the grey you have and the fuchsia

    • Leann

      Not too shabby but US does seem to have cheaper prices than the UK :/.

  • Andie

    I’ve seen these and they are beautiful. I immediately thought they looked like the Story by Kranz and Ziegler snakeskin bracelets, only less money and look great on their own. Great for layering like you said. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • Leann

      Me too! They pair wonderfully together too :).

  • Courtney Williams Tessaro

    They have them at some Macys, Dillards and Lord and Taylor as well. Love them!

    • Leann

      Oh great! I went to Macy’s and they didn’t have anything :/.

  • Maris

    They’re very popular around here, but not to my taste. I think they look like thick hair rubber bands…

    • Leann

      I love the sparkle :).

  • Patricia

    Hey Leann! Glad to see you covering this! They are really sparkly! Pics don’t do them justice but I’m still sharing mine here 🙂

    • Leann

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing :D. I love pairing mine with my other charm bracelets :).

    While I have to say I like that you’re primary focus on this site is charm jewelry (cause that’s what I primarily wear) I like that you chose to share these. I have wanted to stack my Pandora with other things but I do worry about it getting scratched or it scratching other things. I also have some other diamond bangles but my favorite type is like 2mm wide, so the Pandora overpowers it. I like how these have that mesh so I don’t have to worry about scratching and it’s not so tiny it’ll be swamped by the beads. I may have to look into these!

    • Leann

      Yay, I’m glad you like these. Have you had a chance to check them out in person?

      • koolchicken

        I’m so bad, I totally forgot about these so I haven’t stopped into of the any local stores. Though I’m sure I will at some point. My son loves this store, so it’s only a matter of time. 🙂

      • Leann

        Haha, they’ve been very popular! 🙂

  • Maria Ferrara

    I have it too. I got the chocolate with rose gold clasp. Goes well with my rose pandora.

    • Leann

      Ooo perfect! I really love the blush one too. 🙂

  • Lozzie

    I saw an tv ad for Swarovski last night and I wasnt sure what they were. I didnt think Swarovski would bother advertising hair ties but thats what they looked like.

    Hopefully, I can check them out on the cruise I will be on soon. Apparently, the ship has just installed a Swarovski shop.

    • Leann

      Interesting! They definitely look great in person :).

  • Adriana Fuentes

    Well I just had to go buy myself one yesterday, it’s so pretty!

    • Leann

      It sure is! What color did you get?

      • Adriana Fuentes

        The white one:)

      • Leann

        Awesome! My fave too :).

  • Ivanka

    I just picked up the burgundy double wrap. It’s such a rich colour.

    • Leann

      Very nice! I’m so tempted by all their colors ;).

    Hey Leann!
    I know I haven’t been around in awhile…but I am SO glad that you have done a piece on the Swarovski bracelets…I especially appreciate the fact that you took the time to find some special pics from Instagram. The stock photos don’t look that great, but I am in love with the ones I have seen here! I am going to go look at them in person to make my decision on which color to purchase. Hard choice as I want them all!! 🙂 Thanks again!!

      You bet! They are reallly cool in person :D. They stack so wonderfully with my other bracelets, I want all of them too! 🙂
