Swarovski's Majestic Blue color is so intensely blue. It made me think of the Great Blue Hole, a diving zone near Lighthouse Reef off the coast of Belize.

The Majestic Blue color from Swarovski's Spring/Summer 2019 Innovations is inspired by the intense blue color found in the depths of the ocean, to make you dream of far-off destinations. Cynthia created a beautifully elegant ocean theme around these crystals, pairing them with an octopus pendant from Gardanne Beads, velvet ribbon in the perfect matching color, and other Swarovski beads in beachy colors. Shop all of the Innovations for Spring/Summer 2019 and get inspired to make even more!
