One step closer to the diamond

This year marks an important anniversary for Swarovski—it’s 150 years since the birth of founding father Daniel Swarovski, the man with the ambitious plan to create a ‘diamond’ for every woman. And the best way to celebrate and honor his legacy? With a never-before-seen, absolutely new crystal. So fanfare, please, for XIRIUS 1088, Swarovski’s most brilliant crystal element yet!

Years of research and state-of-the-art engineering, unparalleled luminosity and refinement, variety and responsibility, all come together in this beautiful new SWAROVSKI ELEMENT—one that has set an entirely new benchmark for the industry.

Named after Sirius, the brightest star in the firmament, XIRIUS 1088’s intricate gemstone-like cut, radiant, rich color and enhanced foiling have combined to produce an exceptionally durable new generation of crystal, taking it one step closer to the diamond with its multi-layered, flawless facets.

The key to its unprecedented sparkle? A complex, stacked effect of interlocked triangles, masterfully cut using high-precision geometric and optical measurement. In addition, it has been made according to the ADVANCED CRYSTAL standard, which is the new DNA of crystal.

XIRIUS 1088 also enjoys a significantly increased lifespan. Created using Platinum Pro, a technically advanced foiling technique, it is capable of withstanding damage from everyday environmental influences, including chlorine, salt water, and perfume. Moreover, Platinum Pro is just as resistant to processing methods such as soldering and electroplating—great news for designers, who can now choose between a greater number of creative application options. In essence, Platinum Pro guarantees greater longevity for SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS all round, ensuring that its super-dazzling sparkle remains undimmed.

Already available in 88 colors and effects of extraordinary depth and richness, Swarovski’s trend experts will stay ahead of the curve by adding new shades and effects to the XIRIUS 1088 range twice a year.

All in all, the future is looking very bright for this stunning new addition to the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS stable.
