Trollbeads Shimmer Royal Live Images

This Trollbeads blog brings a showcase of live images of the upcoming and limited edition Trollbeads Shimmer Royal, Black Friday bead 2017.

Later today the Trollbeads Shimmer Royal will launch as the Trollbeads Black Friday 2017 bead. As with it’s predecessors it’s a limited edition design. It’s set to retail at $56 or €51. It’s a faceted cut, inky blue bead and an amazing complement to the equally limited edition Trollbeads Wishful Sky glass.

The bead launches at midnight tonight as do a number of promotions. Confirmed is that spends of $150 or more will qualify for the free Trollbeads stackable jewellery case in the new plum shade. Ahead of Shimmer Royal’s launch, I want to share my own live images.

Interestingly there were a couple of rumours circulating about this bead far before it’s release. The first being that it was purple. It’s most definitely not purple. The second being that it’s actually the same glass as on the Wishful Sky Bracelet. That is also incorrect though it’s a great complement.

In the images below Wishful Sky is to the left and Shimmer Royal to the right. You’ll hopefully be able to see that the colouring of Shimmer Royal is a little darker. I particularly found a couple of Wishful Sky glass with matching brighter flashes. There’s actually a touch of green in one of mine if you catch it at the right angle. These flashes are not present in Shimmer Royal. Some of the beads do have the subtlest of purple hues.

Here’s a quick reminder of my Wishful Sky macro images.

There is variation to be found in the shape and size but it’s actually quite a consistent bead. The following images come with a disclaimer. The macro lens on my camera is picking up slight variations in the glitter. I need readers to remember however that we’re talking tiny variations in the size of the glitter pieces. The chances of seeing these with the naked eye are really small. Does the glass vary? Absolutely but we’re talking on a small level.

Trollbeads Shimmer Royal Summary

I absolutely love this bead. I’ve always adored anything reminiscent of a night sky as I find such comfort in star gazing. For those who wanted multiple Wishful Sky glass but couldn’t justify the additional expense, this bead is ideal. The two work together so beautifully while still being distinct. It’s a very clever move by Trollbeads. As mentioned the bead launches at midnight tonight and I’ll be publishing a complete list of ordering links then. This will include those retailers selling from live images. While there are a lot of promotions to be unveiled by Trollbeads this weekend, this bead does not feature as part of any kind of sale so don’t wait around for that.

Do I have a personal favourite? I do marginally prefer Wishful Sky as those slight flashes of colour you find in some remind me of the Milky Way. Like most collectors however, I’m struggling as to how many sets I can realistically justify. You can see a reminder of my current bracelet below.

    I need two of these for Doctor Who bracelets!

    I did buy the Wishful Sky starter bracelet with the same idea – but then I saw this glass and felt it more fits the colors ! Of course the clasp and bead for Wishful Sky are perfect for my theme too.

      Doctor Who, yes! I could add to my Tardis bead and Iron wolf. Awesome.

    I have a couple of the Wishful Sky bracelets, but don’t feel the bead holds a candle to Shimmer Royal. I’m a glitter person, and side by side the Shimmer Royal out-sparkles the Wishful Sky bead completely. I also prefer the depth of the blue in it. While I’m happy to have bought the sets I did, this bead is way higher on my list. I picked out three already and expect to end up with more. I played with them on my bracelet, and my heart almost exploded. This is the bead I’ve been waiting for! Brava, Trollbeads!
