The greatest thing that Swarovski ever made was that incredible crystal ball that falls in Times Square to bring in the New Year. And in second place, there's this Swarovski S.A.L. bracelet.
It's bracelet perfection. It's made in the shape of your wrist...oval. It's heavily gold-plated and made like fine jewelry. And then there are those two brilliant facing clear crystals. They're facet-cut to nab every light that falls their way.
The bracelet measures 6 3/4 inches around the inside, ending in a secure slide-in clasp. At the center top, it measure 1/2 inch wide. Inside is hallmarked S.A.L. which stands for Swarovski American, Ltd. This logo was used prior to 1988.
Bracelet is in excellent vintage condition. Not just on New Year's Eve...this Swarovski crystal bracelet captivates all year round.
Some interesting Swarovski trivia...
Swarovski jewelry made its silver screen debut in a 1932 film called 'Blonde Venus' starring Marlene Dietrich. Costumes and jewelry all glittered with the crystals, and not long afterward, an endless line of blonde starlets appeared onscreen and on the red carpet in the crystals.
Marilyn Monroe in 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' wore glittering Swarovski crystal jewels with her now-iconic pink satin gown and sang, ironically, 'Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend'. Marilyn also sang her memorable rendition of 'Happy Birthday' for President John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Gardens. Where was Swarovski? Monroe wore (or rather, was sewn into) a sheer, flesh-colored dress with 2,500 crystals. Under the spotlights, the dress seemed to melt away, leaving only the sparkle of the Swarovski crystals and Marilyn at her most sultry best.
And then one of the most famous film moments for Swarovski jewelry was with Audrey Hepburn in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'. Holly Golightly wears a small tiara at certain key moments in the film. And guess who made it?
