Swarovski Opal Shimmer Colors: The Opal Shimmer family is soft and elegant, yet emits multicolored flashes of light, giving every piece a beautiful fine-jewelry look. Base colors include:
Chrysolite Opal (semi-translucent green, echoing gentle sparks of yellows, pinks and blues)
Pacific Opal (semi-translucent blue-green, mixing well with turquoise and teal hues)
Rose Water Opal (delicate semi-translucent pastel pink)
White Opal (ethereal semi-translucent milky white)
The Shimmer coating (developed for the dance industry) adds extra brilliance, color vibrancy and and light refraction to each opal color, accentuating the wearer's every move. Shimmer 2X means the bead is coated on the entire bead, rather than just half the bead, like most iridescent coatings.
Opal shimmer colors are perfect with Swarovski's pastel pearls such as the Dreamy Rose pearl and the Dreamy Blue pearl.
