Kick off the festivities with fabulous photos of Swarovski’s Christmas tree at Raffles City’s entrance. The 15m-high tree is a tribute to Swarovski’s 125th anniversary as it resembles the traditional pine trees of the Tyrolean Alps, where the brand originated. Shimmering with over a million crystals, fairy lights and snowflake ornaments, it is crowned with a mesmerising 1.2m-high snowflake tree topper. At its foot are the brand’s signature blue boxes adorned in red ribbons along with a 2m-high lit-up crystal wall. The merriment continues in-store with Raffles City exclusives of the Festive Ornament Set 2020, made up of three ornaments: two small and a large Annual Edition one engraved with “2020”. Each
is fashioned from 110-facet crystals in gold tones and strung with delicate gold- coloured satin ribbons. Shoppers can also redeem a pair of Swarovski rose gold- plated Harley Pierced Earrings Silk with a minimum spend of $600.
