The Best Swarovski Rhinestone Colours For Mardi Gras

Spring is on its way and people are beginning preparations for the Easter Season. Most of the world knows this time of year as Mardi Gras. This custom was then carried over to America by settlers where, in New Orleans in particular, Mardi Gras has grown into a decadent celebration of life and is now famous for carnival and three key colours; green, purple, and gold. Here we explore the best colours of Swarovski Rhinestones to celebrate in style.


King Of The Carnival

Various customs have evolved among the parades and parties of Mardi Gras over the decades and a parade in 1872 themed “Symbolism of Colours”, debuted the first ever King of the Carnival. This flamboyant figure is always seen on top of a parade float decked out in green, purple and gold, with each shade having its' own meaning, green represents faith, purple stands for justice and gold embodies power. The costumes featuring these colours are designed to be seen from afar and feature spectacular glittering embellishments.


Swarovski Rhinestones For Mardi Gras

At Bluestreak Crystals we thoroughly approve of all things sparkly, and Swarovski Rhinestones are perfectly faceted to catch the light and inspire awe. If you are preparing to get involved in the Mardi Gras spirit we recommend the following crystal colours to get the look!

A faithful homage to the Mardi Gras green can be found in Swarovski Rhinestones in Peridot, it is a bright and happy green compared to the deeper emeralds of the Christmas season.

The golds of the Carnival King are bright and are often represented with a bold yellow, so depending on the decadence of your design, you might opt for the bold warmth of Swarovski Flatbacks in Light Topaz.

If you wish to do justice to the rich purples of this colour scheme, which are often associated with royalty, we recommend amethyst rhinestones by Swarovski.

All of these crystal colours can be found on our website and if you are a brand or business that makes costumes, you can apply online to purchase Swarovski Crystals online.
