The Designers and Their Inspirations Swarovski had the pleasure of requesting well-known designers and valued customers to present their own design ideas for the Gem Visions Tiara & Headband Special, which was officially published at Baselworld 2015. The response was overwhelming, and an astonishing fifty or so highly creative and inspirational submissions have been included in the published book, each with its own special story to impart. One standout design, crafted by Sabine Roemer, the German-born, London-based designer, is a very light, contemporary tiara that sits elegantly yet snugly over the crown of the head, its white, pear-shaped and princess-cut Swarovski Genuine Topaz stones set in 925 silver. The major theme of the design is the reed, which symbolizes the lifetime commitment to the chosen partner and the immense love that is the basis of that decision.
In contrast, the concept of the ‘Twin Tiaras’ by Norwegian designer Vibeke Lyssand Leirvag of the Thai jewellery brand Felicia, explores a very personal and emotional landscape. Inspired by her twin daughters, the design language is dictated by her homeland, Norway, and by ‘rosemaling’, the ancient art of Norwegian decorative painting as mastered by her grandfather. Just like the twins, who are very different in character while still bonded by mutual love, these tiaras are identical in design but present radically different looks. Though both are crafted in 925 silver and adorned with Swarovski Genuine Topaz stones in three shades of red, one is plated with pure silver, the other with black rhodium. The strong contrast represents the yin and yang of the twins’ divergent characters.
The creations of both these designers share a high level of craftsmanship, imagination and inspiration, values that have been part of the Swarovski philosophy for 120 years. Together with the other featured designers in the Gem Visions Tiara & Headband Special, they have created beautiful works of art that prove that the compelling and timeless appeal of this most individual of jewellery pieces is continuing to go from strength to strength.
