Introducing Touchstone Crystal Jewelry – Swarovski’s Direct Selling Line

UPDATE: Since writing this post, I have become an independent consultant for Touchstone Crystal! You can find my website HERE!

Last week I was invited to attend an event at Swarovski North America Headquarters with some fellow Rhode Island bloggers. I’m a huge fan of Swarovski jewelry (sparkles, anyone?), I love getting together with my local blogging ladies, and Swarovski’s headquarters are a little over 30 minutes from my house. A win-win-win! Of course I attended.

The reason for the blogger gathering was to introduce us to Swarovski’s fast-growing direct selling brand, Touchstone Crystal. To be honest, I had never heard of Touchstone Crystal and had no idea that Swarovski had a direct selling line. So I was eager to see how it stacked up to the gorgeous jewelry Swarovski is known for.

The verdict? It is absolutely stunning.

The other bloggers and I had a chance to peruse the gorgeous Fall/Winter Collection while we learned about Touchstone Crystal. It is a fairly new line; after doing some rebranding on an earlier concept, Touchstone Crystal as it is known today was launched in 2011. There are approximately 1,000 consultants (known as Glambassadors) in the United States, but that number is growing.

I was really impressed by the quality of the jewelry. It is extremely well-made (which didn’t surprise me – this is a Swarovski brand, after all), and it’s diverse in that I can see the pieces being worn by everyone, from young ladies to older. I saw a pair of earrings that I knew my 13-year-old niece would love, and there were a few bracelets that I could picture on my stylish grandma’s wrist. And even better? It’s affordable. Fifty percent of the line is under $50.

Shopping for jewelry is one of my favorite things because jewelry always fits! If you’d like to host a party, check out the Touchstone Crystal website to get in touch with a Glambassador in your area. You can earn lots of free and deeply discounted jewelry for hosting. There is also information on the website if you’re interested in becoming a Glambassador yourself. You can get started for only $139, and we learned that some of the top earners are making six figures!

I wish I had gotten a photo of all of us Rhody Bloggers wearing the jewelry. We definitely sparkled!

Disclosure: I was given a gift certificate to spend on Touchstone Crystal jewelry as a thank you for attending the event and offering my opinions while there. I was not asked to post about the experience – I simply loved the line and wanted to share! All opinions are my own.

    Love the line but not sure I can deal with another sales pitch from people. Would prefer to shop at the store.

    A friend of ours sells Touchstone. We have a few pieces for my wife. They are nice. I’m not into jewelry so I’ll take my wife’s word for it.

    Wow, I had no idea that Swarovski’s HQs were in Rhode Island and after seeing photos of the Touchstone, it’s absolutely gorgeous! I love the statement necklace in the top photo and the simple pendant. I think I’ll be adding some of the Touchstone pieces to my holiday wish list!

    Stunning pieces! Love that a lot of it is under $50. It make for a great gift!

    I really like the necklace on the model. I would love if someone could give my hubby the good ‘ol hint hint nudge nudge:)
