Husband and wife team Bill and Harriet Albanese have been designing and assembling Swarovski-crystal, bridal, and costume fashion jewelry since 1973. More than half their shop's stock is designed in house, and it ranges in drama from subtle cubic-zirconia stud earrings to 3-inch-high tiaras. Adorn earlobes with Swarovski-crystal earrings in a variety of styles, including elaborate chandeliers ($49.50). Dress up a half-down hairdo or conduct idea sparks with a flexible crystal headband ($89). A Swarovski-crystal and faux-pearl hair comb ($44.50) with sterling-silver plating and an e-coating resists tarnishing while attracting friendly turtledoves to nest in tresses. No matter what accessory gleams alluringly at your eye or turns sunbeams into rainbows that pierce your heart, you'll have an elegant strand of sparkle to drape across your skin and declare superior to even the sveltest diamond-encrusted banana peel.
