Swarovski’s news indicates that the new Window Ornaments could be hung in the home, car, or any other small place.
Great news….these new Chinese Window Ornaments do not look nearly as fragile as the Annual Edition Swarovski Ornaments that Swarovski fanatics typically purchase. That should make them substantially easier and more fun to display! The new technology used in the Chinese Ornaments is a terrific idea to the innovations by the crystal giant.
