I like celebrating Chinese New Year almost as much as the traditional New Year on December 31. A colorful, joyous, and tasty celebration full of wonderful animal imagery that’s rich in symbolism, which I really enjoy. From the twelve signs of the zodiac, I am a Fire Horse, a rare sign that only appears once every sixty years and which has always brought me good luck! It is said that the Horse is passionate, energetic, adventurous, full of lust for life, and bursting with creativity. A sparkling definition which I can really associate myself with since I love traveling, new challenges, and the fantastic creative spirit here at Swarovski! 2014 is the Year of the Horse, which we are celebrating with a majestic crystal sculpture with 507 delicately cut facets. Launched in 2009, our Zodiac collection brings together extraordinary technical skill, modernity, and heritage in the tradition of our animal sculptures, which have been our international signature piece among collectors since the launch of our Crystal Living range in 1976. Both a daily companion and beautiful ornament, I always keep mine close by on my desk! Every year, the sign of the zodiac for the year is available in Crystal Golden Shadow as an exclusive limited edition in China. Why not give a “horse” to your friends this Chinese New Year for a really special touch!
