MANILA, Philippines — Ever fancied eating Swarovski crystals?
Besides that Swarovskis are expensive, the brand has not yet figured out a way to make its crystals edible. Until such time, one can enjoy Swarovskis and treat oneself and/or loved ones and friends to an early Christmas afternoon tea inspired by Swarovski.
The Writers Bar of Raffles Hotel in Makati City is offering a limited-time and exclusive Swarovski Sparkling Afternoon Tea Delight set until November 27, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. and from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. daily. Each set for two starts at P3,000 nett, which includes a choice of premium TWG tea or coffee with optional upgrades for mocktail, cocktails, and champagne. Reservations are required and can be made via bit.ly/BookTheWritersBar.
The set was crafted by Raffles’ culinary artisans as an interpretation of the brand’s Austrian heritage, innovation, and savoir-faire since 1895 in 2023. The high tea menu features a variety of savory and sweet treats featuring the iconic swan and the vibrant brand colors of Swarovski. Some of the must-try canapés on the menu are the Seared Tuna with Mango Cilantro Salsa, Green Mango Tart with Sea Grapes, and Vegan Cheese Bruschetta with Calamansi Pearls for savories; and the Crystal Glazed reinvented Raspberry Linzer, Cube of Sacher Cake and Crystal inspired Praline for sweets. Scones, of course, are included. You can choose from Classic and Apple Studel, a popular pastry in Austria.
For its Fall/ Winter 2023 collection, Swarovski presents an inspiring new range of jewelry aiming to give wearers joyful extravagance, with artistic savoir-faire that promises to transform any look.
In crafting this array of eye-catching designs, Creative Director Giovanna Engelbert has taken her cues from multiple worlds. Whether it’s Idyllia’s secret gardens filled with wondrous creatures, or Luna’s star-covered skies illuminated by crescent moons, there is a seamless connection between science and magic throughout each collection.
Timeless and refined, Millenia has far- reaching connections within fashion with its bold faceted crystals and bright hues. Fall / Winter 2023 introduces hypnotic new designs in light green, as well as denim blue, alongside industrial-style chains that add a modern edge to the most contemporary pieces.
By mixing a wide variety of cuts and stones, the Gema family is one of unexpected beauty. Each piece reveals a collision of crystals that seamlessly work together in perfect harmony. This season unveils dazzling new statement pieces in a vibrant shade of blue.
As the name suggests, Mesmera jewelry continues in Fall / Winter 2023 with dramatic clusters of different cuts. There are also subtle accents of color that accentuate the classic silhouettes, while various stone settings and ingenious techniques deliver a sophisticated look.
In the Philippines, Swarovski is available in Rustan’s in Alabang, Makati, Shangri-La, and Ayala Cebu. It is also available through boutiques owned and operated by Stores Specialists Inc. in Alabang Town Center, Glorietta, Newport Mall, TriNoma Mall, Power Plant Mall, and SM Mall of Asia.
