The Crystal Shimmer effect adds a touch of multi-coloured radiance to coloured crystals. Its unique light refractions are designed to make colours more dazzling and to create a softer, more elegant shimmer that accentuates every precision movement, flow and finish to your dancing performance.

 The look of Crystal Shimmer is one of standout, high performance luminosity. Costumes become eye-catching, with every angle and movement highlighted with the spectacular and charismatic shades of the northern lights.



Multi Coloured Brilliance

 An evolutionary step to the beautiful Aurora Borealis AB crystal finish, Shimmer Crystals are a magnificent collection of crystals that shower a spectre of multi coloured light refractions accentuating every movement of the body. Built on the design of the AB crystal effect, each crystal shimmers with three shades of a single colour creating an innovative brilliance.


A perfect example  embellishing with Crystal Shimmer showcasing our Little Black Dress from our 2016 collection, crystalized beautifully using Light Sapphire Shimmer, Fuchsia Shimmer, Erinite Shimmer, Hyacinth Shimmer, Light Colorado Topaz Shimmer and Light Siam Shimmer.

For more than mere Embellishment

Crystal throws off myriad shards of light that emphasize a dancer's every move, tracking motion and lighting up the stage. As such, crystal and dance make for a symbiotic partnership that's perfectly reflected in Swarovski's® collaborative relationship with one of the most renowned ateliers in dancesport, Chrisanne Clover.

A magnificent example of embellishing with Crystal Shimmer ...  showcasing proudly our dazzling shimmer Ballroom dress. Featuring a nude stretch net top and sleeves, with hematite stretch net over lycra bodice. Embellished brilliantly using CRYSTALS FROM SWAROVSKI in Erinite Shimmer, Siam Shimmer, Fuchsia Shimmer, Hyacinth Shimmer, Light Sapphire Shimmer, Crystal AB and Fuchsia. Godets layered with hematite satin chiffon over fuchsia pink organza underskirts hemmed in crinoline with a wire hem creating beautiful volume and movement. Finished perfectly with spiral frill floats floating elegantly from each wrist in fuchsia pink georgette and hematite satin chiffon.


I used the shimmer stones within the stoning designs for three of my sponsored girls at the Royal Albert Hall. Each dancer thought the shimmer stones gave an added brilliance to their stoning design. It gives the ability to have a dual colour effect like 2 different AB types within the same stone. Our sponsored lady Sara who won the Amateur Ballroom at the Internationals had a number of the stone patterns on her dress in silk shimmer on her white final dress. She also wore the light sapphire shimmer on her blue dress that she wore in her earlier rounds.’

I have just used this shimmer collection on a ballroom dress and used the colours ss16 fuchsia shimmer and ss16 siam shimmer. The stones look absolutely stunning on the dress, far more eye catching and my customer was so so happy. I would recommend using the shimmer crystals to anybody and will definitely be using more in the future.'
