Swarovski Previews the Pirate of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides, Jewelry

The much-awaited “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” with Penelope Cruz and Johnny Depp is opening in theaters on Thursday, May 19, 2011.

The Palm Beach Plaza Mall’s MegaPlex 8 will be showing the fun swashbuckling adventure in two of its theaters, and scheduled several different performances for that night.

Tickets will be available for pre-sale, from early this week, and don’t lose your movie-ticket stub, as it will entitle you to participate in a raffle for a piece of jewelry.

When the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, went into production, Swarovski Crystal was asked to collaborate with Disney on the design of the jewelry worn by the film’s main characters.

In fact if you like the jewelry worn in the movie by both Angelica and Captain Jack Sparrow, you may go right ahead and purchase a piece or two at the Swarovski Boutique in town.

Most the pieces will be on display at the movie theater on Thursday, during opening night. So get ready to have fun that night with the pirates in the theater.

The collection available for viewing and sale in Aruba is based on the latest Digital3D “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tide,” and includes carefully crafted replicas of pieces, drawn straight out of the movie set.

Swarovski had fun crafting black pearls, skulls, and swords, which are traditional pirate motifs, into an edgy contemporary collection, sprinkled with some gothic and some vintage touches.

Four different lines were developed:

ANGELICA, which includes all the jewelry worn by Penelope Cruz, boasts a Cross Pendant with Pavé setting and a crystal pendant on a gold-plated chain, also a Pendant Sword and matching Ring, embellished by black diamond, clear crystal pavé and light Siam crystal dangling droplets, on a ruthenium chain, a Pendant Gun, ruthenium-plated and embellished by clear crystals, epoxy and light Siam crystal droplets, and a Dragon Ring, ruthenium-plated with dragon in metal work adorned by Pointiage® technique.

The HIGH SEA collection, as worn by Captain Jack Sparrow includes the Necklace Compass, a pendant with the case coated in black epoxy and black diamond crystal Pointiage® on a ruthenium-plated chain, the High Sea Pendant Shark Tooth, in black epoxy and jet crystal Pointiage® on a ruthenium-plated chain, and the High Sea Windrose Necklace with Pendant in jet crystal pavé, on a ruthenium-plated chain.

Inspired by Captain Jack Sparrow’s ship, the Black Pearl line features a Black Pearl necklace with matching Bracelet and Ring, Ruthenium-plated with an anchor and rope motif with crystal pave and the Black Pearl pendant with matching pierced Earrings and Ring with black crystal pearl, dangling clear crystal drop, and ruthenium-plating.

The SKULLS and SWORDS theme exemplifies a masculine influence. Skulls and Swords Bracelet and matching Ring are ruthenium-plated with accents of jet crystal pave and the Skulls and Crossing Swords Pendant, in jet crystal Pointiage®, on a ruthenium-plated chain.

All jewelry will be previewed at the theater on opening night and is already for sale at the Swarovski Boutique, downtown Oranjestad.
