My passion for high tech is equaled only by my passion for all things jewelry, and high on the list of jewelry things I’m passionate about is Swarovski crystal.  Most people who have heard the name Swarovski picture the exquisite leaded crystal sculptures for which the company has been famous for decades; a decidedly smaller group is familiar with the role that Swarovski plays in jewelry.  The variety of crystals available for jewelry designers is nothing short of overwhelming – in a good way! – and the company has been making them for so long that vintage collectors are equally as thrilled as new collectors.

Swarovski makes its own spectacular jewelry – spectacular with a capital Bling! – and now it has found a way to bring that bling into the 21st century by partnering with Philips technology on such ubiquitous items as USB Memory Keys, Headphones, and Bluetooth Headsets.  Yes, you heard me right.  Check these out:

This is one of the USB Memory Keys.  They come in three styles, including encrusted with crystals.  Below is the single crystal style.

The Heartware USB Memory Key is shown as a closed pendant in Vitrail Medium.

Which brings us to Bluetooth headsets.

The Breeze Bluetooth headset comes in white or black, and has an over-the-ear piece and volume control.  One of the crystals lights up to show that it's in use.

The earbuds are next up.

This is called the Amazone.  The earbuds have crystals in them and the chain features a hook at the end to attach your MP3 device.

And finally, an example of the headphones.

This is called the Space In-Ear Headphone.  It comes in three colors, and according to the description, "Listening to music will become your daily highlight as the sparkling crystals shimmer to the rhythm of your favourite beats."

There are other styles of headphones as well – see the URL link above – and so help me, I want some of these devices, but they range from $56 to $260 so I guess I will be admiring from afar for now.  And, just to make sure you don’t miss anything when you go through check-out, you can also buy Swarovski Belts, Binoculars, Keyholders, Mobile Phone Accessories, and Small Leather Goods.  Too bad Christmas is over and gone.  But, I do have a birthday coming up…
