Since 1991, Swarovski has produced Holiday ornaments annually, which have quickly become collectable items. Over the past few years, the beautiful star ornament has been adapted into a large-scale version that is featured on top of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in New York City.

THIS YEAR, Merchants Overseas has a FULL selection of Swarovski Crystal Ornaments, including an angel, christmas tree, stars, santa accessories, and more!

Crystal Affair was created out of a desire to find collars for pets that were sophisticated, glamorous and totally “blinged”. After searching for months, the President and Designer Joan Champiomont, couldn’t find what she was looking for and started designing herself.

One day while walking her dog, her designs were discovered.  They sold in local specialty stores and became a huge success. Ten years later her  Swarovski crystal pet designs are sold in luxury pet boutiques and accessory stores around the world.  As a result of their superior quality and dedication to perfection,  Crystal Affair is also now an official SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Branded Partner.



Crystal Affair is the world leader in Swarovski crystal retractable leads. Each retractable comes with a custom made Crystal Affair micro-suede pouch and box.


Brushes for Pup, Mom and Daughter:

Crystal Affair has recently introduced their new line of Swarovski Crystal brushes for pets and people. Each brush also comes with a custom made Crystal Affair pouch.

“To many of us, our animals are our children who continually give us unconditional love, and bring so much joy into our lives. So spoiling them is not an option—it’s just so much fun!” – Joan
