All crystals are created equal, right? Wrong. At least, that’s what I found out after a little digging. But how can you tell the difference between a pretty glass bead and, say, a stunning Swarovski crystal? Just look for these three simple characteristics.


Shape & Appearance: All beads should be a uniform shape with the same number of facets, regardless of size.

Color: The shade of each bead is around 99.8% accurate. Meaning? They should all appear to be the same exact color, inside and out.

Logo: Look for the little swan. Since 1989, all Swarovski crystals and jewelry feature this recognizable logo.

Four Pieces to Turn Your LBD into A Valentine's Day Ensemble

Going overboard on a Valentine’s Day ensemble is an easy thing to do. If you throw on a red dress, sparkly heels, and a few pink accessories, you’ll look like Cupid – not your valentine’s dinner date. Since an LBD never fails, start with that clean slate, then add just one piece of V-Day–inspired sparkle, like ruby drop earrings, a pink cocktail ring, or even a simple heart-shaped pendant. Then you can rest assured your date is staring at you for all the right reasons.
