Sam Ryder x Queen's Jubilee
What a fantastic Jubilee bank holiday weekend we celebrated in June and we're so proud to say that Crystal Parade played a small part in dazzling the crowd outside Buckingham Palace. In collaboration with Luke Jefferson Day, top fashion stylist and editor of GQ Style, we supplied the Zodiac crystals used to embellish the stunning Union Jack outfit worn by Sam Ryder on the Saturday night. Thousands of Zodiac crystals in many shades of blue including Aquamarine AB, Montana, Capri Blue, Peacock Blue and Sapphire adorned Sam’s outfit, along with Light and Dark Siam to create the flag, and Clear and Mine Silver rhinestones to fully crystallize the collar and cuffs. Luke chose to apply crystals of varying sizes to achieve what is known in the industry as the ‘Rockery Effect’. This allows the light to hit the stones at multiple angles which is then reflected in every direction to create more sparkle on stage.
