Belle‘s iconic yellow gown from Beauty and the Beast has been stirring up a storm, both on-, and off-screen—whether it’s for Emma’s recreation of the gown with a ‘feminist’ twist, or for the 2,160 Swarovski crystals it is embellished with. The 25-year-old fairytale is being retold in a new-age format which has everyone waiting with baited breath for the big release (17th March).
The Bill Condon team has successfully reimagined the royal aura of the animated version with sparkle partners, Swarovski. Other than the yellow gown, Swarovski crystals were used to decorate the grand sets, the Princes’ garments, and even the Enchanted Rose.
Swarovski Releases Beauty And The Beast Jewellery
In the run up to the release, Swarovski’s making news with a collection of baubles inspired by the fairytale, decked in their precious crystals, of course. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings in alluring deep reds and green will be sold at the brand’s retail stores and we have no doubt they’ll have takers. The legendary magical rose is the collection’s focal point, which is designed using the crystal Pointiage technique. Atelier Swarovski has defined the jewellery line as “…bold and beautifully feminine, inspired by the film’s themes of inner beauty and female empowerment“.
Swarovski has always been known for its dainty pieces and even this time around, they’ve managed to maintain that delicate allure. An interesting feature of this collection is the addition of fabric into their jewelled accessories. In particular, we’re loving the Cord Bracelet and the Choker, because both pieces strike that perfect balance between modern and classic beauty. Another favourite are the rose earrings which look like they’ve jumped straight out of the pages of the book.
We hope the collection celebrates the message of the film of inner beauty, belief, and strength of heart and soul, thus empowering all Swarovski clients with this meaning, but also with the beauty of the jewels” — Nadja Swarovski
An extension of the Beauty and the Beast jewellery collection is a very pretty limited edition figurine of the Enchanted Rose—only 350 pieces are available worldwide.
