Another unique element that incorporates the festive season in true Swarovski style is the feather motif, meant to represent angel wings. Pieces with black crystal are part of the naughty collection, while all-white crystal pieces belong to the nice collection.

The look overall is very clean, high fashion and definitely eye-catching, as the crystals from all angles shimmer as they catch the light. Even for those who are not particularly keen on asymmetric necklaces or jewellery, the well-proportioned size and placement of the feathers balance the piece quite nicely, making it both unique and very wearable. The necklace is 38 centimetres in length and costs a fair $499.
