Swarovski Crystal AB iPhone 5 case

Good evening my friends!

To know me is to know of my love for anything that "blings". With my recent upgrade to the iPhone 5, I was no longer able to find use of my Swarovski crystal light rose AB case made by the wonderful Claudia over at, so I contacted her in order to get the ball rolling on a custom initial Swarovski case for my new phone. I am a frequent customer of Claudia's and refuse to go anywhere else as I trust her service and quality. 

Claudia informed me of the recent upgrade that Swarovski made to their flatback crystals. The original 2028 crystals were upgraded to a longer, pointier version with larger facets to enhance sparkle. I did some research on it and found some awesome information at I got some screenshots of their visual of the differences between the older model (2028) and the new upgraded flatback model (2058). 

Here is a timeline of the modifications that the flatback crystal has gone through over the years.

I must say, I was excited about the changes and knew I was in for a treat! Claudia didn't disappoint! My case is remarkable! It's flawless and with the custom initial K, the crystal arrangement follows the curves of the K and comes out in a gorgeous strass. I am so excited to show off my case!

  1. This is a good case, but isn't it harder to put in the pocket? I mean I like it and I would like to have it very much but it will worry me if I have put my iPhone in my back pants pocket.



    1. I don't find any difference with comfort when input it in my back pocket. I will say that I am more aware and careful with my phone, but thats an overall good thing. I'm very particular about my things so regardless, I try to always keep my phone secured and in a safe place.

  2. This is such a beautiful case ! I love the bag as well ! so PRETTY and SPARKLY my two favorite things !! lol

  3. Such a gorgeous case!! I gave tried to email Claudia a few times with no response. I was hoping to purchase my own case. Does usually take a long time to get back to you? Thanks!!

    Btw I love your blog!! You have a beautiful family!! Xo

  4. Beautiful Case, das sieht richtig schön aus.

  5. One of the top turn based games of all time has to be Temple of Elemental Evil. Temple of Elemental Evil did have some problems, but it also had colorful visuals, an excellent combat system, and a great overall design. The combat system the game had would still be considered top notch, even today. This combat system was very advanced for its time and it was the single reason this PC game was so fun.
