Wherever you find yourself on this big, beautiful continent, you will be touched by the wild lands, rich traditions, artisan craftsmanship and natural beauty – all of which these pieces pay tribute too.

Swarovski Crystals Around the World – India Inspired Project Step by Steps

One of the oldest civilizations in the world, India is a mosaic of multicultural experiences and rich heritage. Extending from the snow-covered Himalayan mountains to the tropical rain forests of the south, it is impossible to ignore India’s mesmeric conflation of the old and the new. Walking through the bustling city streets you are greeted by a diverse variety of cuisines, arts, crafts, faiths, and nature.

Experiencing different textures, sounds and smells triggered the emotion that prompted these designs.
