With no more illustrious performer than Justin Timberlake furnishing a seal of approval, the Swarovski crystal spiral ring is now a must-have fashion accessory.
CULT PRODUCT ALERT | Anyone yearning for a Cartier trinity ring or a set of Tiffany’s channel-set semiprecious stackers (both pictured below) will be attracted to the Swarovski crystal pavé spiral ring that featured prominently in Justin Timberlake’s recently released music video, Mirrors. And they’ll be even more smitten when they learn the price.
Inspirations For The Spiral?
Cartier Trinity Ring
The Swarovski ring, five layers of rhodium-plated metal with a rolling ring silhouette, is costume jewellery, yet it looks rich and exclusive the way Cartier and Tiffany rings do. But where a Cartier trinity in the smallest width is $1,150, and a single Tiffany channel-set celebration band starts at $3,400, the Swarovski spiral ring can be yours for $175.
That is, of course, if you can actually find one. No longer available online or at Swarovski shops in Canada, I did find some south of the border at the Swarovski Boutique at Southcenter Mall in Tukwila, Washington, just outside Seattle, where you can buy one over the telephone (CLICK HERE to determine your size) and have it shipped to Point Roberts (CLICK HERE for our story on how to do this). Still, you better act fast.
“We had this ring for a while,” Pat, a salesperson at Swarovski in Tukwila, told me, “but when the Justin Timberlake video came out about two months ago [CLICK HERE to watch it] and they used the ring and Swarovski box—the spiral started flying out the door.” —Carolann Rule
