Romeo & Juliet…and Crystalp – a magical love story

What with February and St Valentine’s Day being the month and day of love respectively,  Crystal Forum in collaboration with it’s retail partner Simply Manas Gift Emporium, Ster Kinekor and Nu Metro Cinemas chose the month to run a fabulous giveaway and promotion around the release of the remake of Romeo & Juliet. Movie-goers were afforded the opportunity to win jewellery and vouchers from the Swarovski Crystalp range, available at Simply Manas in Sandton City.

In the spirit of love and partnerships, Crystal Forum and Simply Manas are extending the Romeo & Juliet promotion to all customers for a further month, and are offering a 20% discount off all Crystalp crystal jewellery and accessories until the end of March 2014.

It is wholly fitting that Swarovski Crystalp and Romeo & Juliet would feature together in such an amazing promotion, as, in co-production with Amber Entertainment, this remake of Shakespeare’s classic love story marks Swarovski Entertainment’s entry into the making of feature films. As one would expect of the manufacturer of such beautiful and sought-after crystal jewellery, crystal beads, crystal stones, etc, Swarovski has long been a part of film, theatre, opera and ballet production, but until now this has largely been in the form of costume and set design.

The movie brings together a star-studded cast as well as introducing some talented relative newcomers to the silver screen, notably in the form of Douglas Booth, the young and handsome ex-Burberry model who plays Romeo. American teenager, Hailee Steinfeld, whom one might remember from her performance in True Grit, takes on the role of Juliet, and the youth and charm of these two actors lends a sincerity to their portrayal of Shakespeare’s  star-crossed young lovers.

As one would hope and understandably so, Costume designer Carlo Poggioli makes extensive use of Swarovski Elements in the elaborate and sumptuous costumes and jewellery worn by the cast, and pearl buttons, fancy stones and extensive crystal beading feature throughout, conveying the wealth of the feudal families and opulence of the times.

Another reason the collaboration is so apt is in the simple beauty and timeless appeal of this historic love story, which is reflected in the same beauty and timeless appeal of Swarovski Crystalp jewellery.

Crystalp is our range of top-quality crystal and pearl jewellery manufactured using Swarovski elements, and offered in the form of finished jewellery pieces such as rings, necklaces and ear-rings, as well as crystal accessories, charms and trinkets.

Please come in to Simply Manas Gift Emporium at Shop L336, Lower Level, Protea Court, Sandton City, during the month of March to take up the special 20% discount offer on the full Crystalp range.
